Can you improve confidence with hypnosis ? Yes, most definitely. And it’s a good thing as it’s a very common problem. Having low confidence can happen whether rich, poor, famous, young or old. It’s just some show it more than others.
If we continue to have low confidence and low self-esteem over a long period of time, it can significantly impact on our mental and emotional health. We may find it difficult to deal with the ups and downs of life. We avoid challenges and opportunities, remaining static and not moving forward.
What can cause low self-confidence and low self-esteem?
Poor confidence can start from an early age. It can be caused by negative messages being given to us by others. For example, parents, siblings, friends and teachers. We can feel negative about ourselves because of how the media portray ‘perfect’. If we find it impossible to meet this image of perfection, we can have negative feelings about ourself.
We may also feel we are disappointing those we look up to, such as our parents or a partner. Or maybe we have put too many unrealistic demands on ourself, therefore always feeling that we fail.
Life events, such as bereavement or being physically unwell can also knock our feelings of confidence and self-esteem.
Basically, it is anything that makes us think negatively about ourselves. This normally starts an internal dialogue of bad ‘self-talk’.
Why might someone want to improve confidence with hypnosis?
There are many reasons why someone may want to improve confidence and their self-esteem:
- work promotion/change in job
- public speaking
- leading meetings
- relationships/to meet someone
- to be more assertive
- to change…
