Hypnotherapy for Confidence and Boosting Low Self-Esteem
Hypnotherapy is a short-term relaxing treatment that helps people create practical emotional and behavioural change. Once in a hypnotic trance, I help you reevaluate old belief systems and replace them with new habits and patterns. Hypnosis has been shown to be effective in boosting confidence. A typical program of hypnotherapy usually consists of weekly sessions for 4 to 10 weeks.
What causes low self-confidence?
How we feel about ourselves is often influenced by our past experiences, both positive and negative. The things we experience in our everyday lives, how we - and those around us - react to those events, can all have a significant impact on how we view ourselves and the world around us.
How we see ourselves may be influenced by friends, family, colleagues, peers, or even the media. Big, memorable events such as a traumatic experience can have a significant impact and can cause our sense of belief in ourselves to lower, leading to lower confidence.
The difference between self-esteem and self-confidence
While self-confidence and self-esteem are usually linked, they are not the same thing. When we talk about self-confidence we are referring to the way we feel about our ability to carry out tasks and roles. Self-esteem refers to the way we feel about ourselves - the way we look, behave and think. Those with low self-esteem generally have low self-confidence too. Having said this, people with low self-esteem can have confidence in certain areas and those with high self-esteem may lack confidence in certain areas.Having confidence in your abilities does not mean performing tasks perfectly. In fact, a big part of having self-confidence is knowing how to deal with mistakes when they occur. Having confidence can make a huge difference in many areas of our lives.
Two key areas that benefit are your career and relationships.
Career - Lacking confidence at work can stop you from voicing your opinion and trying new things. This can hinder your progression and stunt your development. Building confidence at work can help you reach your full potential and ensure your voice is heard.
Relationships - When you have low self-confidence it can affect your relationships with friends, family and partners. It may hold you back from meeting people or cause you to isolate yourself socially. Improving this can help you feel more comfortable in social environments.
If you feel you could benefit from building your confidence, hypnotherapy is a safe and effective way to make a positive, long-lasting change.
