Thankfully, there are a number of simple things that anyone can do to boost his or her self-esteem and, hopefully, break out of this vicious circle. You may already be doing some of these things, and you certainly don’t need to do them all. Just do those that you feel most comfortable with.
Hypnotherapy can help improve confidence and self esteem by getting us to focus on our positive aspects and retraining the brain to think from the left pre-frontal cortex which is where all the ‘feel good’ neuro-transmitters are made.
Hypnotherapy often has high success rates for helping those suffering from low self-confidence. Hypnotherapy seeks to determine the root cause of the low self-confidence and then find ways to resolve it. Hypnosis can reach the unconscious mind and modify belief systems, and replace negative thought patterns with positive ones. This can boost self-confidence and completely change an individual’s life.
Nothing is more important than how you feel and think about yourself.
A high opinion about yourself and who you are and what you do and basically a love for yourself is also one of the things that people often miss or have too little of in today’s society.
How is low self-esteem related to mental health?
Low self-esteem is not a recognised mental health problem, but self-esteem and mental health are closely related.
Low self-esteem can lead to mental health problems
Self-esteem is affected by physical ill-health, negative life events such as losing your job or getting divorced, deficient or frustrating relationships, and a general sense of lack of control. This sense of lack of control is often particularly marked in people who are the victims of emotional, physical, or sexual abuse, or of discrimination on the grounds of religion, culture, race,sex or sexual orientation.
The success of hypnotherapy depends greatly on the client’s ability to follow instructions and a personal desire for change. As such, hypnotherapy results vary from person to person and I cannot offer any guarantee of success. If you do not want to change, for yourself, you are advised to seek help through other avenues. If you have been sent by another practitioner, then you need to decide on what changes need to be made.
