Help with Low Self Confidence

What effect can a low self-esteem have on a person?

Low levels of self-confidence can be very restrictive in a person's day to day life.

People often find that they need help in gaining an increased level of self-confidence with respect to:

What causes low self-confidence?

A low level of self-confidence can often be caused by the way that someone thinks about him or herself, often in a negative way (so called 'negative thoughts' or 'unhelpful thoughts').

When these 'unhelpful thoughts' start to happen, they can have a big effect on how the person sees him or herself. This can have a particularly dramatic effect if those 'unhelpful thoughts' become 'cyclic'. This means that they happen frequently, repeatedly, and the person's feelings about his or herself can quickly start to spiral downwards.

Low self-confidence can be closely related to social anxiety

The term 'social anxiety' loosely describes any fear where the person worries about what someone might think of them. When someone worries about what someone else thinks, it's often caused (or made worse) by the person themselves having a low opinion of their own abilities (low self-confidence), so low self-confidence and social anxiety can often go hand-in-hand.

Common questions

How does hypnotherapy work?

Put simply, hypnotherapy is where calming, relaxing words are used to get you into a nice, comfortable, relaxed state, where you can 'take on board' some helpful suggestions. It can be done as either self-help, or with the help of a therapist in a one-to-one setting.

Self-help options

Our self-help option is perfect for those people who want to do something at home, without visiting a therapist.  You can do it whenever you want, and take everything at your own pace. It only takes a few minutes a day.

One-to-one help

One-to-one hypnotherapy sessions are ideal if you feel that you need a little bit more individual help from a therapist.  You can meet with a hypnotherapist free of charge, and have a really good chat about how they can help you.
