... and self-esteem:
We could all do with more confidence
... and hypnotherapy is usually extremely powerful at restoring it.
Those seeking help for confidence range from people with chronic low self esteem to high achievers who may have experienced a setback and need to quickly rebuild their confidence.
People struggling with chronic low confidence have usually not developed habits of action and mind that generate that robust sense of self confidence. Hypnotherapy can be a powerful and effective solution that develops strong self-esteem and quickly rebuilds confidence.
A real necessity
Confidence is a core psychological necessity. More than any other part of our make up it is our confidence that fuels our ability to engage successfully with our world.
When our confidence is low our sense of what we "can do" gets limited. Sometimes the idea of an evening with friends, a business meeting or even stepping out the front door seems out of reach.
How we see the world around us
The reasons behind low confidence or self-esteem are varied. It could be that parents were too critical of you as a child, or maybe you made a mistake at work, or perhaps a teacher could have embarrassed you in front of the class.
It's the way we view what happens to us that makes the difference. You might lose an argument and feel that your confidence or self esteem has been damaged. Someone else may lose an argument but keep their confidence and maintain their esteem intact. It really does come down to how you look at it.
Once you realise that you do have control over the way you think about such things, you can then redirect your thoughts in more productive ways so that you encourage yourself rather than bring yourself down. Remember that people with good confidence and healthy self esteem have life's events happening to them as well. It's how you choose to deal with those events that makes the difference and this can be learned fast and robustly with hypnotherapy.
The following is a reasonably comprehensive list of situations that you may have difficulty with. You might struggle with one, two, or lots of them and this may suggest that you could benefit from hypnotherapy.
Hypnotherapy has been successfully used to help people find confidence in the following areas:
Social Anxiety / Social
One-off stressful situations
Exams and tests
Lack of confidence
Meetings with partners
Fear of being rejected
Low self-esteem in general
Fear of driving...

Hypnotherapy for confidence is different for every person but would most likely include:
Use guided imagery to take you somewhere peaceful, calm and relaxing. Almost all clients benefit from learning how to relax deeply. When we know we can calm down and relax we build a sense of effectiveness plus a confidence in our ability to manage our thoughts and emotions.
Use hypnotic suggestions
for building self esteem, and this is usually the first treatment most clients receive. Almost everyone I work with benefits from initial gains in self esteem; because the sense of belief in our own abilities influences how we feel, think, behave and motivate ourselves.
Use hypnotic suggestions
for building confidence
In a state of hypnotherapeutic relaxation you are given suggestions for feeling more confident in yourself, more effective in your life and more in control.
Draw on past experience
Also clients learn how to remember and focus on previous experiences of confidence and successes while discovering how to view experiences of failure and low confidence as learning opportunities.
In hypnosis clients can rehearse situations in which they want to feel more confident - and through this experience of mental rehearsal whilst in hypnosis they can establish a sense of self mastery that powerfully influences performance in real life situations.
