When our self-confidence is low, we tend to see ourselves and our life in a more negative and critical light. We also feel less able to take on the challenges life throws at us. Negative thoughts about ourselves, or worrying about what other people think, greatly affect our quality of life and can be mentally exhausting. Sometimes the idea of a business meeting, an evening with friends or even venturing beyond our front door seems beyond our capabilities.
Signs of low self-confidence
If any of the following apply to you then it's highly likely that you suffer from a lack of confidence:
- Exaggerated concern over what you imagine other people think of you.
- Accentuate the negative.
- Beat yourself up for ages if you make a mistake.
- Avoid social situations.
- You hate yourself.
- Compare yourself with others.
- Afraid to give your opinions.
- Inability to accept genuine compliments.
- Obsessed with achieving perfection.
- You're a people pleaser.
- You check your smartphone in social situations to avoid conversation.
How does it work?
In a state of deep hypnotic relaxation clients are given powerful suggestions for feeling more confident, more in control and more effective in their lives.
In addition clients learn how to remember and focus on previous experiences of success and confidence while learning how to view experiences of failure or low confidence as learning situations.
In hypnosis clients rehearse situations where they want to feel more confident - and through this experience of mental rehearsal in hypnosis they develop a sense of self-mastery that influences performance in real life situations.
Many people suffering from chronic low self-confidence have simply not developed habits of thought and action that create a robust sense of self-confidence. Hypnotherapy provides a powerful and effective solution to rapidly build confidence and develop robust self-esteem.
