Low self-confidence is often caused by negative self-hypnosis. Hypnotherapy can help change that for the better.

Is low self-confidence an issue for you? Hypnotherapy, together with NLP and EFT can help with self-confidence.

Low self-confidence and low self-esteem are remarkably common as both social and work related pressures increase.

Confidence is not just about the feeling, it’s also about the signals, the messages we send out to those around us.

Together, we can change the message to more truly recognise your qualities and abilities as an unique, capable and successful human being. Hypnotherapy, NLP and EFT are a good starting point and Coaching can help you move forward.

If low self-confidence is an issue for you as it is for a great many people, give me a call for an informal initial consultation to see how I can help.

Where Does Self-Confidence Come From?

First, it is NOT something you are born with. Self-confidence is in fact a learned skill resulting from a combination of skills and qualities. It develops with practise.

Everyone can learn these required skills and with practise, become more confident. The more confident you begin to feel, the more your confidence will grow.

Sadly, low self-confidence is also learned and we have some good teachers. It is a sad fact that by the age of 5 the average child has heard the word “No” 40,000 times but “Yes” only 5,000 times. When children get to school how many are:

  • Constantly told to improve or do better
  • Ridiculed or made an example of in class
  • Called names because they’re different, quiet or studious
  • Excluded by others because they’re not good at netball or football

Anxious and caring parents tell children to “Be careful”, “Don’t touch this”, or “don’t do that.” Seldom do they tell them how to evaluate and assess risk and act accordingly. Seldom are they encouraged to do something slightly risky so that they learn how to encounter and deal with these things in a safer learning environment. Richard Branson’s mother was however, a notable exception and look where he is now!

Consider another aspect. As children we were constantly told not to talk to strangers, yet as adolescents and adults we have to go out into the world of strangers to make new friends, mix with new work colleagues, or network for business contacts and increased business turnover.

So remember, people are not born with or without self confidence – it is learned.

The Next Step is Important!

Pick up the phone and call me – I won’t laugh at you or think you are silly, I’ll treat you with the respect and seriousness you deserve. And if you’re too shy to do that, fill in the contact form below or on my contact page, tell me the best time and I’ll call you.

I’d really like to help you and I’ll let you into a secret. When a young boy, I was so shy I used to get my brother to ask the other boys in the street if I could play with them! Now they can’t shut me up, so get in touch.

Call me on 0131 208 3208 or 07749 478 785 to find out how I can help you. 

Or if you prefer, use my contact form and I will call you back.

Just thought I'd update you on my driving after my session with you. I now have my new car and today took it for a run to Peebles which I wouldn't have contemplated in the past. I am also quite a regular at the new Morrison store in Dalkeith - which I thought I would never be able to do either. So thank you for your help. I don't know what you do but whatever it is it certainly works.

I want to thank you for identifying my low self-esteem and not confidence. This has made me stand up for myself and deal with things instead of thinking other people will sort it all outfor me - so thank you very much.

Step2Change helped me to cease a 33 year, 20 a day habit in which I had smoked 240,740 cigarettes at a cost (in today's prices) of £72,270 and spent over 20,000 non-productive hours doing it! Do I recommend Step2Change? You bet!

I just wanted to drop you a line to say how much I enjoyed your workshop on Tuesday - it really got me thinking (and relaxing). I also had a number of attendees say how much they enjoyed it too.
