What is confidence?
Confidence is having a belief in yourself, having faith in your talents, abilities and personal strengths. Confidence comes from within. You may have a raft of qualifications, a high-flying job or successful business, all the external trappings of success, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you are confident. Even very successful people seek help with confidence issues. Lacking confidence can affect your relationships with others or it can prevent you from developing to your fullest potential. If you lack confidence you may feel the need to apologise inappropriately or seek reassurance from others. You may only focus on perceived criticism and ignore praise. You may be perfectionist. These behaviours can be debilitating and affect your enjoyment of life.
How can hypnotherapy help?
Hypnotherapy can help become more confident by helping you to identify your strengths and focus on what you can do, rather than what you can’t. Then, by using Solution Focused techniques we help you to visualise what it would be like to be more confident – what does confidence mean to you? We help you to take small steps to stretch your comfort zone and help you to identify what has gone well. We gradually build on your success so that you are better able to engage in social or work situations, free from self-doubt and able to enjoy life to the full.
