Do you second-guess the decisions you make?
Is self-confidence an issue that you deal with on a daily basis?
Most people deal with self-confidence and esteem issues from one time to another—the process of evaluating yourself and your actions is a very healthy one. However, when the results of your self-appraisal begin to get in the way of leading a fulfilling, happy life, therapy might be the best way to help.
Psychologists note that individuals with self-confidence issues regularly do some of the following thing:
- Make poor decisions knowingly;
- Suffer hurt feelings;
- Self-criticize or blame when things go wrong;
- Inflict some form of self-punishment, or
- Focus on penance, rather than recovery
If this sounds like you, it might be time to treat your confidence issues and take positive, assertive control of your life. You could start with a free consultation or browse through a collection of hypnosis download materials to begin.
Hypnotherapy for Increasing Self-Confidence
While there is more than one way to treat low self-confidence, hypnotherapy presents one of the more effective methods out there. Psychiatric therapy and life coaching can’t address the deeper nature of self-confidence.
This is because confidence is a deep-rooted subconscious trait. Unlike a disease with symptoms a doctor can treat, low self confidence manifests directly in the decisions a person makes—you can’t wrap a Band-Aid around it.
Hypnotherapy directly addresses an individual’s subconscious capabilities, developing the foundation for a healthy decision-making process.
As mentioned in Psychology Today, confidence is built by a successful track record of accomplishment—low self-confidence is often the result of high-profile failures that discourage people from attempting difficult tasks. Yet it is only by attempting and completing challenges that people develop confidence.
When low self-confidence prevents you from even attempting new challenges, hypnotherapy can be the most effective way to change the way you approach them.
How Self-Confidence Affects Your Self-Esteem
Although it might seem like self-confidence and self-esteem are the the same thing, they’re separate, but closely related attributes. Self-confidence simply refers to the way you judge the quality of your actions. Developing self-confidence leads to developing greater self-esteem, which is an overall evaluation of how well you meet your own expectations.
What Can Higher Self-Esteem Do For You?
After using hypnotherapy to increase your self-confidence, you will have the tools necessary to approach life’s challenges and gain a sense of accomplishment from completing them. This will produce greater self-esteem, which has many psychological benefits:
- Greater emotional stability—a high self-esteem is a buffer against stress and anxiety. It makes rejection and failure hurt less, and allows you to recover more quickly from disappointing experiences.
- Greater self-knowledge—valuing yourself on an objective level allows you to accept your strengths and weaknesses as what they are. This makes you better prepared to accomplish things that are within your power to do, and to avoid entering contests you won’t win.
