Hypnotherapy for Confidence Boosting

What is Confidence?

Hypnotherapy for Confidence in CheltenhamThe word “confidence” comes from the Latin “confidere” meaning to “trust fully”. So being self-confident simply means that you can trust yourself fully. Even when things are uncertain, you can feel comfortable with that uncertainty.

From time to time in life we could all do with an extra boost of confidence either to help us on our way with a new job, meeting new people, getting out and about in the world, speaking in public or just generally feeling better about ourselves. Hypnotherapy can help.

What is Self Esteem?

Self Esteem is a basic human need and low self-esteem can adversely affect your levels of happiness. Low self-esteem can be self-defeating and self-destructive which can restrict personal development.

A lack of confidence or low self-esteem usually has an underlying cause of stress, anxiety or even depression. When we lack confidence we feel out of control.

The major cause of poor self-esteem is past negative programming that may be the product of a specific parental or schooling style. You can therefore inherit this thinking style and acquire a critical inner voice that produces internal fear. It may be a fear to try anything new, a fear of change or even a fear to perform your daily activities.

Self-esteem may suffer from the way you perceive your physical self. If you view your appearance as a negative factor, you will reflect that view in your behaviour and actions, in the words you use, in your body language and in the opinions you express.

When we are confident in ourselves it makes us more attractive and fun to be around. Life is more enjoyable. When we have a basic trust in ourselves an interesting things happens, instead of worrying what people think, and trying to control everything situations appear more relaxed, easier to attain and almost effortless. Even if something doesn’t go the way you wanted, you can take it in your stride, knowing that whatever happens, you'll be okay.

Hypnotherapy is the ideal way to learn how to increase your confidence, because true confidence is not something you can consciously create.

Cheltenham Hypnotherapy for Increased Confidence

Hypnotherapy can be used as a relaxation tool to reduce stress associated with everyday activities and to support positive changes. In addition, visualisation and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) techniques will be utilised to remove any fears associated with the situation and help you see the future you would like for yourself.

Aspects of CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and SFBT (Solutions Focused Brief Therapy) will then allow the therapy to be effective, by establishing your goals and retraining the mind to think from the part of the brain where all the 'feel good' chemicals are made. By changing old, unwanted patterns of behaviour you will be happier, more motivated and have higher energy levels.

The number of sessions required will be determined by the severity of the confidence or self-esteem issue. This will be discussed during the initial consultation.
