Self-Esteem/Confidence

Do you often feel unlovable, awkward, or incompetent ? Do you think "I'm not good enough" or "I don't deserve this?   

Are you struggling with Self-Esteem or Confidence ?

The first thing to realise is that low self-confidence and/or low self-esteem is not your fault ! There are numerous factors that contribute to low self-confidence and everbody is unique, in that, these factors combine and interact differently. Your genes, childhood experiences, social and cultural background, and other life experiences all plat a role.

For example, a unhappy childhood where parents (or other significant people such as teachers) were extremely critical. Poor academic performance in school resulting in a lack of confidence. Ongoing stressful life event such as relationship breakdown or financial trouble. 

Having low self-confidence undermines your faith in your ability to be successful and competent. Low self-confidence manifests itself in a steady feeling of inferiority that can prevent you from making progress and accomplishing your goals in life.

Whereas, low self-esteem is how we value and perceive ourselves. It's based on our opinions and beliefs about ourselves, which can sometimes feel really difficult to change.

Characteristics of Low Self-confidence:

  • Being socially withdrawn

  • Experience anxiety and emotional distress

  • Struggle to accept compliments

  • Unwilling to take on challenges

  • Worry about what other people will think of them

  • Struggle to trust own judgments

  • Have a low expectation of life

Characteristics of  Low Self-Esteem:

  • Is critical of themselves

  • Judges them selves to be inferior to others

  • Downplays or ignores their positives

  • Uses negative self-talk which is critical and self blaming

  • Think their achievements as due to luck and don't take credit for them

  • Struggles to believe in others compliments abou them

Raise Self-Esteem & Build Confidence with Hypnotherapy

If you suffer from low-confidence or low self-esteem, then its time to change. I can help you through a tailored combination of hypnotherapy and Nero-Linguistic Programming (NLP). Together, we will challenge and change your limiting thoughts and beliefs. Limiting beliefs are firmly held convictions that constrain us (if....then rules) is some way. For example, "if I mess up my speech.....then everyone will think I'm stupid"

By believing them, we end up  diminishing our self-esteem and/or confidence and impoverishing our lives.

Hypnotherpy and NLP can you help to:

  • Reframe the way you speak to yourself (self-talk)

  • Develop self-compasssion and stop being self-critical

  • Reduce anxiety and emotional distress

  • Accept compliments

  • Focus on your positives and realise you can achieve

  • Visualise yourself as you want to be

  • Develop strong motivation and self-determination

  • Accept your mistakes and learn from them.

I will help you to raise your level self-esteem, as self-esteem serves a motivational function, making it more or less likely that people will take care of themselves and explore their full potential.

I will help you to believe in yourself, feeling comfertable in your true self, knowing that you have true worth. If you are confident, people believe in you, confidence is attractive, brings success, helps you to connect well with others and you will generally feel happier.

 

Low self-esteem and low-confidence, if left untreated can cause anxiety, stress, affect work performance and personal relationships, and increased the likelihood of depression. However, with the right support self-esteem and self-confidence can be cultivated in a positive direction, enabling you to achieve your goals and the lifestyle that you truly desire.
