Many people suffer from low self-esteem and lack of confidence. The thing that always strikes me as funny, strange and even a little sinister is that at school we learn French, chemistry and maths, but often not how to present ourselves confidently in the world.
Don’t you think that should be one of the first things that schools should teach to children?
These are also skills that most parents pass onto their children but sometimes those parents do not have them in the first place. The parents may have been too busy or did not understand the importance of building self-confidence in their child so that that mentoring simply did not happen enough.
Maybe perhaps you were confident once but something changed or you had a traumatic encounter that seemed to damage your confidence in the short or even long term and you became too afraid to ask for help.
People from all walks of life have consulted me over the years to help them in how to build self-confidence through hypnotherapy.
Indeed I have lectured on several occasions on this subject, and what always came to light was that people were simply not aware at a conscious level how they were building confidence.
People presume it is either something you have or you do not have, instead of realising it is a series of skills you can learn and even relearn, no matter who you are or where you are from.
Through teaching people how to present themselves with the help of hypnotic techniques, behavioural modification, visualisation, movement therapy and correct breathing, it is easy to improve self-confidence very quickly.
Yes that is right …very quickly when you are open to learning.
Since I don’t generally see people for very long in my clinic, the work we do is fast and effective, building confidence and giving you levels of confidence that you can use in both social or work situations and in private.
Even if it is confidence in yourself, your abilities and potential, it is important to have a deep sense of confidence that you learn so you can move forward in a positive way.
We build what I would refer to as core confidence that can be transportable to all areas of your life when you need that to happen.
As a naturopath I take a full medical history and look to see if there are any physical ways we can help decrease anxiety and build confidence because sometimes there may be physical causes to what is happening to you.
Changes in the area of diet and lifestyle can make large contributions to the way the body and mind are working. Confident people work on being confident in body and mind.
Whether it is confidence in a learning situation, at work, in private or in public life or in your relationship, building confidence is an essential cornerstone of an achieving personality.
The process of building confidence is accelerated and strengthened with the use of hypnotherapy which reaches deep into your unconscious mind. This helps change your knowledge, thoughts, emotions and behaviours to help you become more confident on every level.
