Many of us will suffer with a lack of confidence at some point in our lives and this is only natural (see section below on how hypnosis can help), however for some people this lack of confidence is an almost constant backdrop in their lives.
Life can be quite challenging for those who have poor levels of self-confidence, self-belief and/or self-image.
For example, making and keeping friends can be difficult; socialising in large groups may create anxiety or worry; going for job interviews may be problematic; speaking on the telephone may not be easy; even buying new clothes may be stressful.
For this group of people, there are likely to be unresolved issues from their past that are undermining their confidence levels on a daily basis.
Many of the features, and the impact, of low self-confidence mirror issues associated with problems such as anxiety, stress and social anxiety and it is likely that many people who have low self-confidence also suffer aspects of these other difficulties.
How Hypnotherapy for Self Confidence Can Help
If you are experiencing a lack of confidence over an upcoming event, for example, you are due to give a best man’s speech, or you are going to a party where you won’t know many people, or maybe you are looking to change your job, then clinical hypnosis could allow you to increase your belief in yourself and your self-confidence, enabling you to feel more proficient and in control.
It will provide you with a greater sense of self; it will boost self-esteem; it will help you build on your self-belief and you will have a strong visual image of yourself being calm and self-assured in your upcoming event.
An added bonus is that hypnosis is wonderfully relaxing and reduces stress levels.
Here at Weybridge Hypnotherapy we have experience of helping people to reduce their worries and anxieties in relation to specific events, and you may only need just one session a week or two before the event in question.
Ongoing or Chronic issues with Low Self-Confidence
