At Centro Integra, located , our Psychologists perform the  treatment to improve the self-esteem of adolescents .

During adolescence, self-esteem can be affected since this is an exciting evolutionary stage in which important changes take place on a physical, psychological and social level.

Self-esteem is the assessment we make of the self – concept or image we have of ourselves . When the child gives way to the adolescent, it can be seen how he develops his competences, his social skills and the management of his emotions. Sometimes, during this change, these skills do not develop as they should for different reasons, which can lead to low self-esteem in the adolescent. It is here where the help from the Psychologist, both to the adolescent and to the family, can redirect the process towards a more positive change and improve their self-esteem.


Self-esteem is an element of great importance for adolescents. Low self-esteem can lead to poor school performance, behavior problems, depression and even the use of certain substances; so it is important to detect early if there is a problem in this regard. Some symptoms that may make you suspect that your teenager has low self-esteem are:
