... and self-esteem:
We all need more confidence
... and hypnotherapy is usually extremely good at delivering it.
People seeking help for confidence range from those who have chronic low self-esteem to high-achieving business people who may have suffered a setback and need to quickly rebuild their confidence.
Clients suffering from chronic low confidence have often just not developed habits of thought and action that create a robust sense of self-confidence. Hypnotherapy can provide an effective and powerful solution to quickly rebuild confidence and develop robust self-esteem.
A real necessity
Confidence is a central psychological necessity. More than any other aspect of our psychology it is our confidence that feeds our ability to engage successfully with the world.
When confidence is low our sense of what we "can do" is limited - sometimes the idea of a business meeting, an evening with friends or even stepping beyond our front door seems out of reach.
How we look at the world around us
The causes behind low confidence or self esteem are many and varied. It may be that parents were too critical of you as a child, or a teacher may have embarrassed you in front of the class, or perhaps you made a mistake at work.
Its the way you view what happens to you that makes the difference. You may lose an argument and feel your confidence or self esteem has been dented. Someone else might lose an argument but maintain their confidence and keep their esteem intact. It really does depend on how you look at life.
Once you are aware that you do have some control over the way you think about these things, you can then redirect your thoughts in more positive ways so that you are encouraging yourself rather than discouraging yourself. Don't forget that people with confidence and a healthy self esteem have life's events happening to them too. It is how you deal with those events that makes the difference and this may be learned quickly and robustly with hypnotherapy.
The following is meant to be a fairly comprehensive list of situations you may have difficulty with. You may struggle with one, two, or many, of them and this would suggest you could benefit from hypnotherapy.

Hypnotherapy for Confidence would most likely involve:
Using guided imagery to take you somewhere peaceful, tranquil and relaxing. Nearly all clients benefit from learning how to relax. When we know we can relax and calm down we build a sense of effectiveness and a confidence in our ability to manage our own emotions and thoughts.
Using hypnotic suggestions
for building self-esteem, and usually this is the first treatment most clients receive. Nearly every condition benefits from initial work on building self-esteem; since the sense of belief in our abilities influences how we think, feel, motivate ourselves and behave.
Using hypnotic suggestions
for building confidence
In a state of deep hypnotic relaxation clients are given suggestions for feeling more confident, more in control and more effective in their lives.
Drawing on past experience
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 can develop a sense of self-mastery that influences performance in real life situations.
