Quite a few people will probably experience highs and lows in their confidence levels throughout their lifetime, but for many, certain memories can make it hard to regain their confidence fully. Having low self-confidence may mean it is challenging to speak in public, manage stressful scenarios or even attend social events. Having low self-worth also affects confidence in a negative way i.e. if we feel unhappy about the way we look.
Experiencing low self-confidence can make people worried at times of confrontation and others can perceive them as being quiet and timid.
In plenty of cases, the environment a person is brought up in could affect the confidence of a person. Negative incidents, constant critical judgement and even bullying can cause low confidence in people, as can experiences later in life.
Not only can ongoing low confidence hurt self-worth, but it can also lead to a host of other problems, such as stress, depression and emotional stress. A person with low confidence will usually find themselves in a cycle of negative thinking – convincing themselves of their own worthlessness and confirming their low self-worth. This type of low self-confidence can spread into many areas of our lives including searching for work or maintaining a job, socialising with other people, general day to day activities and relationships.
There are, however, ways that lack of confidence can be remedied fairly easily. In general, feelings of low confidence are the consequence of behavioural traits. By altering these habitual thought processes and giving back a level of control, confidence quickly returns. As confidence begins to improve, this creates a positive feedback cycle in which improvements in relationships, social and work life begin to fuel confidence at an escalating rate.
Using hypnotheraputic solutions are one of the most effective ways of dealing with low self-confidence and it can quickly help to make considerable improvements in the person’s confidence levels. A qualified hypnotherapist can easily help you to identify and remedy the underlying causes so that you can begin to create a constructive feedback loop.
The hypnotherapist would suggest new thought processes to the subconscious to replace the old patterns of behaviour. Once the underlying issues are dealt with, many clients find it much easier to get back to a ‘normal life’.
Giselle Monbiot, a proficient hypnotherapist, who works in Kingston upon Thames explained, We aren’t born with low self esteem. Low confidence is a learned behaviour from the experiences as we grow. However, Cognitive Hypnotherapy means these patterns can be changed to a more positive outlook at life.
