Low Confidence and Self-Esteem

Are you missing out on getting what you want from life? Lack of confidence or low self-esteem can stop us from enjoying life to the full and can leave us feeling frustrated, angry and/or depressed.

We may find it difficult to say ‘no’ to others’ expectations but even more difficult to say ‘yes’ to what we want. Over time this can profoundly effect our life satisfaction and peace of mind.

What is Low Confidence and Self-Esteem?

Low confidence or self-esteem often begins in childhood, but can come about through various difficulties, be that a traumatic event, parenting issues, experience of bullying or humiliation, or being on the receiving end of prejudice. Traditional and social media can also affect our sense of self-worth.

Low confidence or self-esteem can affect every area of our lives, making us people-pleasers with shaky boundaries, or perfectionists. We may struggle to accept compliments or be overly self-critical, hiding away from social situations and being unwilling to try new things or get out of our ‘comfort zone’.

We may also find it difficult to say ‘no’ to things that are not in our best interests. Low confidence and self-esteem can often lead to depression and anxiety.


How can Solution Focused Hypnotherapy help with Low Confidence and Self-Esteem?

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help feelings of low confidence and self-esteem by alleviating feelings of anxiety and depression, enabling individuals to assess their strengths more clearly and gently challenge any negative beliefs we hold about ourselves.

Hypnotherapy offers a safe space to explore our best hopes for the future and recognise the resources we have to make those best hopes a reality.

In trance, we can engage the subconscious to recognise our innate self-worth, and build a strong sense of confidence and self-esteem from deep within.
