Confidence can be a funny thing. One moment you’re oozing sureness, buoyed by your bulletproof self-esteem, laying on the charm and certain of who you are. The next moment, however, you’re shrinking into the shadows, losing faith in yourself and your abilities. “How did I get here?” you ask. Well, that’s the very nature of confidence – it’s fleeting, fragile and easily hurt. Hypnosis is an effective means of allowing you to face the challenges that damage your confidence and which leave you feeling stressed and anxious.
Confidence is a state of being clear-headed and certain that a chosen course of action is the best or most effective option. It can be defined as ‘a feeling of self-assurance arising from one’s appreciation of one’s own abilities or qualities.’1 It means that we’re able to accept ourselves, believing in our abilities, allowing us to move forward with a sense of wellbeing and assuredness.
In this age of social media and interconnectedness, confidence can be shattered by the opinions of faceless people, with many taking joy in ruining others’ faith in themselves. From people critical of our work to friends and family who unwittingly break down our positivity, we are facing another global pandemic of low-confidence-driven unhappiness.
Begin With the Mind
Because confidence exists as a state of mind, and this is where we begin to work on boosting it. Confidence is fuelled by belief – belief in yourself and your abilities. When this sense of ‘self-belief’ gets shaken, we can easily fall into a self-damaging cycle where every obstacle we encounter chips away at our confidence.
Confidence and self-esteem are often thought to be the same thing and are frequently linked. However, self-esteem refers to how we feel about ourselves, while confidence determines the belief we have in our ability to complete tasks, jobs or relationship roles successfully.
Confidence Affects Everything
Confidence plays an important role in almost every aspect of our lives. It permeates into everything that we do and how we interact with people. Low confidence prevents us from taking risks, asserting ourselves, expanding our interactions and reaching out to others.
When the aspects of our lives, including love, friendships, and work, are negatively affected by an inability to believe in our capacities, we are less productive, struggle in our relationships, and quickly become isolated and lonely. This breeds unhappiness and anxiety and can even have a debilitating effect on your physical health.
Hypnotherapy works to stave off these damaging states of mind, fostering feelings of love and kindness. When you begin to recognise and show gratitude towards yourself, your confidence levels start to increase. Hypnotherapy works on building a positive foundation that anchors your self-belief and faith in your abilities to all aspects of your life.
Rediscovering Your Confidence
Confidence is like energy. It is almost impossible to be destroyed, but it can be transferred to places where it is hard to reach. As such, while many people may feel that they have lost their confidence altogether, they are actually able to rediscover it at any moment.
Hypnotherapy uses deep relaxation and powerful suggestion to allow the mind to access the beliefs that fuel confidence. Therapists implant positive affirmations that feed these beliefs and self-faith, growing them to levels that raise your overall self-confidence. Eventually, this confidence transforms into more potent degrees of self-esteem and, ultimately, more happiness.
Linda and Jan will guide you to improve the levels of happiness and wellbeing through a range of effective techniques that are geared to boost not only your self-confidence but many other factors of the mind as well. Finding your confidence by overcoming the challenges of stress and anxiety through hypnotherapy is an effective means of overcoming the negative feelings that lower your self-belief. Start feeling more confident today, and see the benefits in almost every part of your life.
