Hypnotherapy for low confidence and self esteem

The vagaries of life can put our self-confidence at risk.  Unexpected circumstances may call into question a person who is usually confident and assured. Therapy to learn to assert oneself, to (re) discover one’s self-esteem can be a valuable help.

How important is it to have good self-esteem?

Confident people have a good sense of self, they are natural and authentic. They know themselves well and remain in control of themselves. As a result, they are happier and more fulfilled. They play their own game and advance at their own pace. They have the freedom to be natural and to be guided by their own judgments and intuitions. Their words and actions are simple and assured.

Good self-esteem also brings a certain level of optimism, which means that you are better able to take calculated risks, to venture out of your comfort zone to realize your ambitions, your dreams.

They are usually true and sincere people who express their feelings and intuitions in words. Open and honest, they express their emotions because nothing restricts them. They share their feelings, so they are more authentic and more engaged in life.

For some people, all this comes easily, but for others it is not innate; we must learn it and we can learn it.

Learn to assert yourself and to be authentic

One is often mistaken in thinking that self-confidence comes from the ability to find the right answers when a colleague hassles us too much, the right words to charm someone who attracts us. We believe that gestures and charisma communicate this so-elusive self-confidence.

In reality, it’s not what we say, but what we think that needs to change. It is the continual self-criticism that undermines our trust. By learning not to listen to these thoughts, or even to change what your inner voice says, you can gain in self-confidence.

It can feel like a great relief to be more assured and authentic, and to care much less about the opinions of others.

The therapy consists of 3 to 6 sessions on:

  • learning relaxation techniques to manage emotions in stressful situations,
  • hypnotherapy to strengthen the ego and to provide support anchored in the unconscious to achieve its goals,
  • learning about the workings of unnecessary thoughts that cause negative emotions and inappropriate behaviors,
  • awareness of automatic and self-critical thoughts in everyday life,
  • learning to change unnecessary thoughts into more useful thoughts, to change emotions and behaviors,
  • the reinforcement by hypnosis of these modifications,
  • working in brief therapy on possible trauma that could be at the root of a global state of anxiety,
  • the overall reduction of anxiety by hypnosis,
  • the identification of basic beliefs that provoke automatic and self-critical thoughts.
  • the learning of mindfulness and / or hypnosis in the case of worry or rumination (especially in the middle of the night!) to gain distance from the messages constantly emitted by the brain.

Under hypnosis, you will learn to remember and focus on your successes, when you feel confident. This will help you manage setbacks and attacks on your confidence. You will also repeat under difficult situations hypnosis to be able to cope in life.

Testimonial

  • "I grew up thinking that everything was always my fault. I couldn’t help it. It was a real problem because at age 24 I had never gone out with anyone or had a girlfriend. I could not talk to them. Thanks to Deborah, I have made a lot of progress. And I have gone out twice with a girl. I feel much happier and more confident."
