Low Self Esteem and Confidence Issues
Low self esteem and confidence issues are often closely linked. Self-esteem is the value that you place on yourself and your perceived self worth. If you have low self-esteem applying for a new job may or taking a driving test may seem an impossible task as your negative thoughts will have told you that you do not have the skills, resources or capabilities to try something new.
The underlying causes for a lack of self-confidence or low self-esteem can be numerous. Perhaps an event in the past may have triggered these feelings such as your parents or a teacher being over critical or maybe a recent negative comment from a colleague at work may have shaken your confidence.
Whatever the cause hypnotherapy to boost your self-esteem can assist you by giving you the tools and strategies to regain control over your self-critical self. This will enable you to recognise your capabilities and make positive lasting changes.
Hypnotherapy for Confidence
Is a lack of confidence or low self-esteem having a significant negative impact on the way you are currently living your life? Do you feel that your prospects at work are restricted or your ability to interact socially is limited by your fears or anxieties? Has your low confidence become so problematic that it is now stopping you from grasping opportunities because you feel you may be embarrassed about failing or showing yourself up in front of other people?
Confidence building is one of the foundations of hypnosis. Any hypnotherapist whether they are working with weight loss, smoking cessation or test nerves needs to increase their clients confidence so that they believe that they can make the changes necessary to transform their life. When you believe in yourself and your abilities any form of self improvement suddenly becomes so much easier. Remember that many of the limitations that hold us back are often our own creations and not only those set by other people. Confidence is a state of mind and once you have it nothing can hold you back.
We are all born with a level of self confidence however bad experiences, comments from other people or our own self limiting beliefs can prevent us from realising our full potential. Confidence hypnotherapy finds the source of these negative fears and thoughts and then empowers you to remove them. Once these barriers have been fully re-integrated it becomes easier for you to imagine a future where you will be able to achieve your goals.
Our hypnotherapy for confidence program will allow you to re-visit past, prepare for future and imagined scenarios in a highly calm relaxed environment with your therapist. You will then be given techniques and strategies which will enable you to build on the resources that you already have at your disposal. This will help and lead you in to learning how to manage “problem” situations in a positive and relaxed manner. These rehearsals are managed in a safe environment so that when the actual time comes you will face this much more empowered, relaxed and resourceful about trying these new behaviours in your everyday life.

Mindful ways to help get out of touch with unhelpful feelings
‘Getting in touch with your feelings ‘ is something of a therapeutic cliché. As if we should be imploring our clients to remember to send their rage a Christmas card; call up their despair once in a while, or maybe regularly email their ennui.But a great many difficulties in life are kept going because, far from being ‘out of touch ‘ with our feelings, we insist on cohabiting in a shoe box with them.Sometimes your feelings need to know when to butt out, act their age and give you some space. They also need to know how to listen to what you want once in a while.Okay, that ‘s quite enough personification of emotions for now!So how can we help our clients avoid getting swamped by their destructive emotional impulses? Here ‘s three tips.
1) Help plan ahead
Rather than always being taken by surprise by an emotion and then getting ‘defeated by it ‘ (sorry, I did promise no more personification!), helping clients see – and plan for – vulnerable times can help them manage their feelings better.Forewarned is forearmed.For example, because depressed people tend to do a vast amount of dreaming (whether they recall their dreams or not), their mornings tend to feel exhausting, often the worst part of the day. Planning for this ‘worst part of day ‘ ahead of time by remembering to bear in mind that energy will, to some extent, recover as the day goes on, can really help depressed clients get some distance on morning hopelessness.If someone knows that a certain individual makes them angry, they can plan to limit their contact with that person. If your client knows she gets anxious when the phone rings, she could plan to take three deep breaths, breathing out slowly on each one before answering.Having a plan, a strategy, is vital when dealing with emotional patterns. If you know how to help your clients with hypnosis, then the more you get them to hypnotically ‘rehearse ‘ responding constructively to their emotional patterns, the more they ‘ll be able to do this in reality.
2) Remember to see the bigger picture
Diluting a feeling is much more effective than trying to suppress it.Say you don ‘t like a certain person very much. Pretending to like them can sometimes help a little, but is more likely to make you feel resentful and manipulated. However, actively finding stuff that will help you ‘humanise ‘ this person in your own mind can really help dilute the dislike.A client of mine couldn’t ‘t stand her neighbour, whom she saw as an interfering busybody, always endlessly talking ‘at ‘ her. From our conversation I discovered that this neighbour ‘s husband had left her after many years of marriage. I asked my client to reflect on the reality of having been left like that, and the awful loneliness her neighbour may have felt, and so forth. Now although this reflection didn’t ‘t magically transform her irritation into liking, it did enable my client to feel much more relaxed and less annoyed by her neighbour.One young client was encouraged to think about the immensity of the universe (yes, really) when talking to his intimidating boss. This ‘overview perception ‘ helped him put encounters with this formerly scary boss into a much more manageable perspective.
3) Find the ‘tipping point ‘
Emotions can take us by surprise, creep up on us from behind and, before we know it, have us doing, thinking, saying and of course feeling stuff we would really rather not.It might not be very easy to see, but there is always a ‘tipping point ‘. Before we get to it, we can always backtrack. But once we have reached this point, it becomes more and more difficult to stop the slide into the emotional swamp.If we can teach our clients to locate their tipping point, we can help them rehearse avoiding it.For example, one mother would find herself getting uncontrollably angry when her young son used a certain tone of voice. She would try not to get angry, but past a certain point she just couldn ‘t help herself. I got her to practise imagining that tipping point and as she reached it to imagine drifting out of the situation and watching it from the outside.When she imagined doing this she instantly felt calmer about it, and later reported that her son could no longer “press her buttons” when he used that tone of voice. And he very soon stopped using it altogether.Yes, clients do need to understand their emotions, and often these emotions are important and valid signals that some emotional need remains unmet. However, a signal only needs to be just strong enough for us to heed it. When it is too strong, it becomes a problem in itself
Along with learning the skill-set to:
Forget About Past Failures – When we constantly focus on where we have failed in the past we set ourselves up to believe that we will always fail again in the future. Hypnotherapy for confidence can teach you to learn from your mistakes and move on so that next time you succeed.
Stop Worrying About Others – We can teach you to focus on the task at hand which will allow you to succeed rather than concentrating on what others are thinking.

Remove Negative Self Talk – Learn how to remove any negative thoughts from your mind and replace them with positive ones.

Confidence and Self Belief – Learn visualization techniques so that you can imagine yourself doing a task and performing it well. Future progression allows us to place you in a number of possible scenarios and imagine what success feels like.
Emotional Control – Obtain techniques which can help you if you get annoyed, upset or angry when you do something badly. We can teach you how to move on from those feelings as quickly as possible.

Are low self esteem and confidence issues making life harder for you than it needs to be?
Do nerves make you self conscious and hesitant, so that you don’t give of your best, or get the best for yourself?
Low self confidence can make life tricky – and sometimes downright unpleasant. You don’t get the best from opportunities that come your way and you may even avoid certain situations because you simply don’t believe you can cope as well as other people.
Lack of confidence is not your fault
People often blame themselves for not being confident, as if it was some kind of character defect. But this is a mistake. Lots of things can knock your confidence. Bad experiences, disappointments, stress, bereavement, even just being ill or having had an accident. No matter what kind of ‘character’ you have, these things – especially when they come together, which they so often do – can take all the stuffing out of you.
When you feel you’re nothing but a bundle of nerves and confusion and doubt, it can be hard to imagine that you can be relaxed and at ease and capable of doing whatever you need to do, wherever you need to do it.
But you can.
