We could all do with a little confidence boost at times. Confident people tend to inspire confidence in others. But sometimes life gives us a knock and we start to doubt ourselves. People lacking in self confidence tend to:
Dislike or feel negatively about themselves Find it hard to make decisions or be assertive Worry about what other people think Find it hard to spend time or money on their own needs Feel worthless or not good enough Avoid social occasions
As a result people lacking in confidence may miss out on thing things that life has to offer - job opportunities, relationships, and new experiences.
Poor self esteem and low confidence may also go hand in hand with anxiety, such as social anxiety. It may also play a part in a reliance on unhealthy habits such as comfort eating, or using alcohol as a confidence booster in social situations.
Therapy for poor confidence focusses on:
Identifying any underlying reasons e.g history of bullying or poor parenting Exploring your personality type and how this affects your confidence Overcoming any fears or phobias which may stand in your way Learning to be assertive and communicate your needs Developing an appreciation for your unique strengths Putting in place strategies to boost your confidence in particular situations e.g job interviews, dating.
I find that both hypnotherapy and BWRT can be useful for boosting confidence, depending on the issue and the clients preferences.
Improving your self confidence and self esteem can help in so many ways - relationships, career, social life, and so much more.
