Hypnosis and Self-Esteem

Hypnosis and Self-Esteem

Self-esteem is an area that can affect so many different areas of an individual life.

From sports professionals to teenagers, weight issues to addictions, to business people and so many more. In a 2017 research in the UK by Dove, it was found that 61% of 10-17 year old girls in the UK have low self-esteem. That is quite simply a shocking statistic!

We all have times when we lack confidence and do not feel good about ourselves and that’s both natural and normal. However, when low self-esteem becomes a long-term problem, it can have a harmful effect on our mental health and our day-to-day lives.

Self-esteem is the opinion we have of ourselves.
It is based on an individual’s subjective evaluation of their own worth.

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 negative and critical light.
We also feel less able to take on the challenges that life throws at us.

Sadly, low self-esteem is very present most often in younger people today, and when I say younger I mean up to the age of 30. Perhaps that is due to different societal values or more likely due to the increasingly damaging impact of media upon people’s perception of themselves, and in particular social media.

Some of the signs of low self-esteem can be

• Sensitivity to criticism
• Social withdrawal
• Hostility
• Excessive preoccupation with personal problems
• Physical symptoms such as fatigue, insomnia and headaches

Self-esteem lies beneath many of the issues that I work with as a hypnotherapist, and hypnotherapy can definitely help with self-esteem.

It focuses on:
• Identifying negative talk
• Connections with loving people
• Learning to be assertive
• Setting a challenge
• Focusing on the positives

Hypnosis is entirely collaborative and begins with a conversation to establish your goals. Only when we have decided on the correct course, will the hypnosis begin.

It will identify those areas and aspects affected most and will improve coping abilities, address past potential causes, and find renewed hope and positivity. Working with hypnosis to reclaim your self-esteem will enable you to re-focus and tap into your natural confidence – a confidence that you were actually born with!

Whether our sessions are face-to-face in person or online, hypnosis can help you.
