Confidence and Self Esteem
Confidence is what we could call a “core” psychological quality. More than any other aspect of our psychology it is confidence that gives us the ability to engage with the world.
When our confidence is low our sense of “I can” is limited – sometimes the idea of a business meeting, an evening with friends or even venturing beyond our front door seems beyond our capabilities.
Cognitive Hypnosis, is one of the most effective treatments for low confidence and low self-esteem.
In hypnosis the treatment given for low confidence is called “ego-strengthening” – and generally this is the first treatment every client receives. Almost every condition benefits from initial work on building confidence – since the sense of self-belief in our abilities influences how we think, feel, motivate ourselves and behave.
Relaxation and confidence – how they are related
In addition nearly all clients benefit from learning how to relax, as when we know we can relax and calm down we build a sense of effectiveness, of confidence in our ability to manage our own emotions and thoughts.
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.
Take action now to rebuild confidence.
It’s really important to understand that each of us needs to take conscious action to rebuild our confidence we have had an experience that has lowered our sense of confidence.
Clients seeking help for confidence range from high-flying business people who have just suffered a setback and need to rapidly rebuild confidence to those who have chronic low self-esteem.
Many people suffering from chronic low confidence have simply not developed habits of thought and action that create a robust sense of self-confidence. Cognitive Hypnosis provides a powerful and effective solutions to rapidly rebuild confidence and develop robust self-esteem.
While you can see improvement in a single sessions working on self-confidence usually will take between three to six sessions.
