Self-esteem is an area that can affect so many different areas of life, professionally and personally. From sports professionals to teenagers, weight issues to addictions, self-esteem can lie beneath many of the problems I work with as a coach/hypnotherapist. So how can you increase it?
We all have times when we lack confidence or do not feel good about ourselves. But when low self-esteem becomes a long-term problem, it can have a very negative effect on our mental health and our day-to-day lives. Basically, Self-esteem is the opinion we have of ourselves, the subjective evaluation of our own worth.
Self-esteem includes self-worth, self-regard, self-respect, and self-integrity. When we have healthy self-esteem, we tend to feel positive about ourselves and about life in general. It makes us better able to deal with life’s ups and downs.
When our self-esteem is low, we tend to see ourselves and our life in a more cynical and critical light. We also feel less able to take on the challenges that life throws at us.
Teenagers are particularly prone to it. We know some of it is due to the impact of social media, and perhaps differing parenting skills and upbringings. However, when worked on, a sense of self-worth can change everything.
Some of the signs of low self-esteem can be…
- Sensitivity to criticism
- Social withdrawal
- Excessive preoccupation with personal problems
- Physical symptoms such as fatigue, insomnia and headaches.
Low self-esteem is a self-fulling prophecy, but there are ways to break the pattern and start improving self-esteem.
Hypnosis can help…
- Identifying negative talk
- Connections with loving people
- Learning to be assertive
- Learning to like yourself
- Setting a challenge
- Focusing on the positives.
Hypnosis is entirely collaborative and begins with a conversation to establish your goals.
Together we will…
- Identify those areas and aspects most affected
- Improve coping abilities
- Address past potential causes
- And find renewed hope and positivity
Once we have decided on the correct course then the hypnosis can begin.
