What is self-esteem & confidence?

Self-esteem and self-confidence are usually linked together but are not the same thing. Your 

self-esteem is your self-worth, how much you like yourself? How you look at yourself? How

you speak to yourself? Where as your confidence is how we feel about your ability to perform tasks and your roles in life. Confidence is about trusting and being secure in your own qualities and abilities to get on and get the job in hand done. If you are lacking in self-esteem and or confidence this can have a knock on effect from your mental health, relationships,  to work life.  

How are you with taking compliments? As soon as one comes your way do you bat it away? What comes up for you when you are about to try something new? Can you list me 3 things that you love about yourself? Do you underestimate yourself? Do you feel worthy? 

Having a healthy self-esteem and confidence is so important in order to live a balanced and happy  life, in order to be confident to take on what ever comes your way in life, by trusting that you are always able to do your best, and that your best is perfectly enough. Without this you could find yourself living a life being constantly put down by your own critique inner voice, it could be holding you back from living at your true potential to go out into the world to live the life you are truly destined for. I want you, to take stock of how you talk to yourself, and I wanted you to ask yourself would you talk like this to your friends? The answer is probably no.

How can I help you?

The good news is that you were not born with these issues, what you are experiencing now is from conditioning that you have experienced at whatever stage in your life. All behaviours are learnt and the great news is this means they can be unlearnt and new behaviours can be made. 

 

I use a selection of techniques including Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Clinical Hypnotherapist and life coaching. These techniques work directly with the sub-conscious mind so are very effective at behavioural changes. 

During hypnosis your mind is so relaxed that your subconscious is able to receive and welcome suggestions and changes to update the way in which you perceive yourself; subsequently being able to correct any negative thought patterns and beliefs you may have. 

As a result you will be able to begin to challenge these old belief systems to create new more positive affirmations about yourself.
