How you can tackle low self-confidence

Eliminating Low Confidence

It’s only natural for our self-confidence levels to wax and wane throughout our lifetime but occasionally certain memories cause our confidence levels to reduce and remain low. Low self-confidence can make it tough to cope in a great many areas, including work, social and stressful situations. More often than not low confidence can be brought on by having a low self-worth, and people may assess themselves in a detrimental way; it is more often than not focused entirely on their physical appearance.

Those with low confidence may appear introvert and timid, with difficulty in confrontational situations.

Bullying at school and demanding parents or peers at home may produce a setting that can play a big part in the conditioning a person receives growing up, and these incidents can setup the right breeding ground for low self-confidence.

The issue is that if self-confidence isn’t handled quickly it can more often than not result in other mental problems like difficulty interacting with others, anxiety attacks and depression. This is why it’s really important to seek help as quickly as possible if your self-confidence is knocked for a long period of time, as unfavourable thinking patterns can quickly develop and spiral out of control. Low self-confidence may have ramifications on large areas of our lives; it can affect things like our social life, the way we interact with relatives and friends, job interviews and management meetings at the office.

Thankfully, low self-confidence can normally be easily solved in a relatively short period of time. Low self-confidence is in most instances caused by inappropriate patterns of behaviour about themselves. By transforming these habitual thought processes and giving back a level of control, self-confidence quickly returns. Higher quantities of self-confidence can make a huge difference to everything – from relationships with family and friends to career prospects as well as general state of mind.

Perhaps the best treatments for low self-confidence is hypnosis, as it deals with the underlying issues causing persistent low self-confidence. The hypnotherapist will seek out the root cause of the feelings of low self-confidence and deal with whatever emerges.

The hypnotherapist is likely to suggest new thought processes to the subconscious to replace the old patterns of behaviour. By removing the underlying issues that have been causing the issue, the treatment with hypnosis tends to be gentle and easy for the individual to do and thus it makes it easier to return to an ordinary lifestyle.

Eliminating anger successfully

Eradicating rage correctly

There are lots of different thoughts that we suffer during the day, the majority of us can handle these emotions and stay in control. Strong thoughts, such as rage, may sometimes be harder for some people to control, and this could have a damaging effect on our social and family life. Uncontrolled anger can be associated with stress, anxiousness and depressive disorders, either as a symptom or underlying cause, but they all are treatable.

Anger can trigger many of the physical responses that stress has – raising pulse rate, blood pressure levels and adrenalin levels.

These significant problems can cause issues in their everyday life on usually these problems can spill into their work as well as interactions with family and friends.

Rage can be shown in quite a few forms, from social problems and general aggravation to violent reactions over minor scenarios, such as ‘road rage’ when driving. Long term unresolved rage can create a downward spiral bringing about mental health problems such as depression, as well as health concerns such as raised blood pressure.

The factors that cause anger problems vary significantly for every person. Typical triggers include bereavement, abuse or frustration as well as feelings of lack of control, inadequacy, or fear. All of these rage triggers are readily helped by utilising hypnotherapy.

Hypnotherapy would focus on finding and solving any underlying beliefs that are inducing the anger and would do so by assisting the subconscious to put together new internal thoughts and patterns of behaviour. Moreover, the process of hypnosis is naturally relaxing, which can help to reduce the adrenaline levels, allowing the individual to cope better with previously stressful scenarios.

Hypnosis helps people to respond differently to trigger situations which help to stop the wrath rising to begin with. Instead, it would help the person actually feel so much more at ease and comfortable with the situation, and able to take care of things a whole lot more calmly.

By removing the underlying cause and then taking on the symptoms of anger the hypnotherapist can assist the person to make rapid and a considerable difference to all their social and workplace scenarios.

Why does hypnotherapy work so effectively?

Why does a hypnotic approach work so successfully?

People sometimes wonder if a hypnotic approach is effective mainly due to the way it has been depicted, especially on television. Well, research studies have now shown that hypnosis has an effect on the brain that can easily be measured scientifically.

Scientific research, performed at Stanford University, concluded that the section of the brain that acknowledges colour had a rise in activity when the volunteers were told they were looking at coloured objects whilst under hypnosis. However, the objects were not coloured, they were in fact black and white. This was not the case outside of hypnosis. This was as a direct result of hypnosis, providing scientific evidence to support the thought that hypnotherapy processes absolutely does work, with regards to having an effect on the relevant parts of the brain in order to gain constructive results.

This breakthrough scientific research strongly supports the use of hypnotherapy techniques for people who need to be able to deal with their own pain and panic attacks or other health conditions without or to compliment traditional medical treatment. This study helps to confirm that hypnotherapy may be used to establish change at a physical level to improve the effect of therapeutic change.

Many other case studies have made remarkable changes following hypnotherapy treatment. Behaviours can be efficiently modified and in the process it is possible to improve life beyond measure. Numerous people have been relieved to learn that they can use the natural process of hypnotherapy to resolve their problems, particularly those with anxious feelings, depression and stress related problems. The mind can be aided through hypnotherapy specialist techniques to eradicate irrational beliefs and feelings, so that they are able to truly feel in control and achieve things they never thought possible. Hypnotherapy approaches could also help people overcome various problem behaviours, including cigarettes, binge drinking and weight problems. Hypnotherapy is a successful solution that can alter the way of thinking to remove such difficulties and increase the overall quality of life.

So for men and women who have been sceptical of the idea of hypnotherapy and seen it merely as a form of entertainment, the data set out by the team at Stanford University can reassure them that a hypnotic approach really does work. This evidence gives people another choice with regards to treatment which can lead to extremely positive life changes for them and also those people around them. Quite a few case studies clients that have already used hypnotherapy have been treated very successfully.

How a hypnotic approach builds confidence

A formula for confidence utilising a hypnotic approach

As a modern society, we are becoming increasingly isolated as we converse ever more through electronic devices and less and less via face to face communications. It is all too easy for people to become isolated from society and as a hypnotherapist I am seeing ever more evidence of this.

This rise in the use of pc’s for chatting with friends has a cost, in particular we aren’t using our verbal communication skills and worse still some of our children are hardly learning them at all. Apps like Facetime and Skype are better as at least we are seeing some of the visual cues, but you can’t beat a chat over a cup tea or coffee to hone your skills.

How will this lack of social skills affect us now and in times to come? Insufficient social skills can lead to real difficulties for people, for instance when meeting new people or being in big social groups, as they just don’t feel really up to the job.

Social anxiety has been in existence for a long time, even so, these new technological facets are making things even worse.

Being asked by customers for more self-confidence in social circumstances is a daily occurrence for any practising hypnotherapist. Generally, they are concerned that they may do or say something that may make them look daft and be judged as a result. Generally, their solution is to stay away from the spotlight and thereby make sure that they will not become the centre of attention.

By making use of hypnotherapy I can help the person solve this type of issue very easily. Utilising hypnotherapy to give someone confidence may not totally resolve the situation long term. This is because it only solves the issue for a while and would be like placing a sticking plaster on a broken leg. You must do something about the reason that you have the issue in the first place.

Typically the problem lies with previous events in our life, like being bullied or made fun of at school. These past memories need to be dealt with first to prepare the groundwork for building new levels of self confidence. As soon as the power of these old events has been completely removed the person is ready for a boost in self-confidence. Then we can start the next stage of the therapy.

There are certainly limits to what a hypnotist is able to do.

Along with making a customer feel more self-assured, we have to get the customer to start increasing social relationships and having more physical communication and interaction with people. So we help the individual to start establishing new social groups and to feel really assured when they are in them. It may possibly just be joining a book club or going to bingo – the type of social gathering does not matter as long as there is a communication and interaction with real individuals. The essential element is to stay open and receptive to others in the room.

All through the process, the hypnotherapist should support and strongly encourage the client. As time goes by their self-confidence is brought back to a more normal level. This leads to a lasting change in the client’s behaviour, which is what they came for in the first place.

Will Penrose, said “lack of self-confidence can be so debilitating. Everyone has talents and strong areas but rarely allow themselves to acknowledge them. Accepting and taking pride in these areas is not arrogance, just justified confidence.”

Can’t sleep? Hypnosis can help

Can’t sleep? A hypnotic approach can help

We all need sleep; in fact we all need 6-8 hours of sleep every night in order to function properly. Losing one night’s sleep can take a while to recover from but eventually we do catch up. However, long term sleep deprivation is just not as easy to bounce back from.

Insomnia causes many people to miss out on much needed sleep. Probably the most distressing part of the condition for most people is the fact that there is nothing in particular preventing them from sleeping. You’ve got the comfy bed, no distractions, you’re the right temperature, you don’t feel particularly stressed but something just does not let you sleep. Hypnotherapy for sleeping disorders may help you get some essential sleep.

So what exactly is Insomnia?

While we are experiencing poor sleep or no sleep at all, even when there is nothing stopping us doing so, we are experiencing insomnia. It’s actually where we’re not invigorated or recharged because we haven’t had the chance to recuperate.

Signs of insomnia can be: difficulty going to sleep, difficulties sleeping at all, rising early in the morning, waking up during the night time, disturbed or restless sleep, finding daily function difficult because of tiredness, change in mood and being unable to concentrate during the day because of insufficient sleep.

The reason a person has insomnia is for the most part very simple. Stress and anxiety symptoms are major reasons for such a condition. The reason why these problems affect us so much in connection with sleep is mainly because they manifest themselves within both our conscious and subconscious, so that’s two levels of our mind to battle with while we are trying to rest.

On a conscious level, most of us may have experienced the issue of a hectic mind in bed, when you simply cannot shut off and all of the day’s thoughts and stresses spin around in your mind constantly. Lots of people end up falling asleep through mental exhaustion.

Over a long period of time, anxiety can reach the deepest regions of our mind. Sometimes panic and anxiety attacks can be the start of the issue, where you wake up with a pounding heart without really knowing the reason. Every now and then tension and anxiety can hit you without you realising the reason; we just absorb the worries around us without understanding that it’s been affecting us on a subconscious level.

Becoming aware of this problem isn’t always helpful either as we then become afraid of it happening which feeds the issue and actually makes it worse. With no idea how you can handle these symptoms, we are left feeble, exhausted and sometimes desperate.

Although well known mind clearing methods can help (such as writing problems on a notepad before bed etc) they are only coping with the conscious area of the mind. This means that the largest portion of your mind – your subconscious – remains unaddressed which means that in spite of your best efforts the symptoms may persist.

A hypnotic approach for sleep issues helps you find the underlying issues triggering the condition and enables you to contend with them. Hypnotherapy empowers you, giving you accessibility to the most powerful part of your mind, dealing with the problems within and eventually reprogramming it to work with you, rather than against you.

William Penrose, an experienced professional hypnotherapist from Richmond Hypnotherapy Clinic, said “insomnia can be incredibly debilitating but hypnosis can help make it a distant memory”.

How Hypnotherapy can help people with anxiety and panic attacks

How People Who Have Anxiety Attacks Can Benefit From Hypnotherapy

Anxiety And Panic Attacks can be quite common and when they are first experienced tend be very alarming as some of the symptoms include chest pains and breathlessness. Panic attacks can have countless causes and sometimes they are not obvious. Studies suggest that stress can be a major factor in the onset of panic and anxiety attacks, as well as stressful or difficult conditions. People often report that panic attacks come out of the blue for apparently no reason. During an anxiety attack your adrenaline level is increased, bringing on the fight or flight response, so the body is equipped to defend itself or run away.

Not only will the attack itself be very distressing, they can also place limitations on how people live their everyday life. The fear of the panic attack manifesting again can create high levels of panic. Many people then begin to restrict where they go since they wish to avoid putting themselves in scenarios they fear may bring on an attack; a lot of people even confine themselves in their homes. A reduction in confidence and self esteem is common for people with panic and anxiety attacks, which in itself can lead to further panic. Being with somebody that is experiencing a panic attack can be frightening but is far worse for the person struggling with it. Roughly 1 in 10 people may experience a panic attack to some degree at some point in their life. For anyone living with panic attacks, however, they can have attacks frequently, causing huge problems in their life.

Doctors can prescribe medication to assist with anxious feelings and stress; however this only helps with the signs and symptoms not the cause. A hypnotic approach for anxiety attacks aims to remove entirely the underlying issues generating the individual’s anxiety attacks. Hypnosis for panic disorder and anxiety can bring about beneficial behavioural changes by changing the thought processes of the subconscious mind.

Hypnosis for anxiety attacks is a very effective alternative to conventional treatment. Hypnotherapy is even more effective when combined with cognitive behavioural therapy which helps the mind to think clearly, calmly and logically, alleviating feelings of fear and panic. From the shadow of perpetual worry and fear, people can gain the confidence to lead fulfilling lives without constraints. We are able accomplish so much when our subconscious mind changes its reactions which affect behaviour.

Changing habits is stock in trade for every hypnotherapist. Problematic behaviour, as well as psychological and physiological factors, can be effectively treated with hypnotherapy, such as Irritable bowel, panic attacks, depression, psoriasis and raised blood pressure. Competent hypnotherapists can also assist with weight loss and smoking efficiently.

How hypnotherapy could help a lack of confidence

Hypnotherapy tactics can help to build confidence in people who have lost it.

Self confidence is how we view our own capabilities to do something. Low self-confidence is where the person has little or no trust in their own capabilities or their capacity to accomplish or create skills. Self confidence is similar but not the same as self worth which relates to our view of ourselves. Hypnotherapy Solutions are an effective way to find the root cause of self confidence issues and deal with them efficiently.

So why do individuals need self confidence?

This element of our personality affects all areas of our life. It can affect our actions when talking in public or even simply to our close friends. We need self confidence to help us grow and to take possibilities we are offered. It is thinking we are able to do all the routine stuff everyone else is doing in life. If you find yourself suffering from low self worth you may undergo shyness in public, you can definitely find yourself feeling embarrassed and self aware socially. You may be refusing job offers because of a belief you are not able to do the job.

Why is it that individuals have low confidence?

It merely takes a single traumatic event to knock someone’s self belief. Perhaps you had problems as a child where perhaps friends or siblings made you feel negatively about your capabilities in interpersonal events. From time to time we have become affected in this way and we don’t even acknowledge it. In some instances consistent knocks to our self confidence can impact us really – perhaps a divorce and a few failed romantic liaisons have left you avoiding romantic opportunities you would have formerly taken. A lot of the time we simply don’t understand how much life can take its toll on our psychological well being and stop us from moving ahead. In some instances there is no upsetting underlying cause and the individual suffering simply doesn’t recognise their abilities and talents.

Continual self doubting, problems speaking confidently, avoidance of certain situations (caused by a fear of feeling uncomfortable), neglecting or not recognising your own needs and disregarding beneficial opportunities (for no apparent reason) are all indications that you may have low confidence.

Is there anything you can do about it?

It definitely can. Step one is finding out what prompted it in the first place. Because hypnosis addresses the mind as a whole, the issue can be discovered no matter how deep or problematic. There are plenty of options for those suffering from low confidence, the most important thing to do is to realise it and get help. It can be really devastating to live this way, to know you are the fundamental cause of your inadequate progress. It is not all doom and gloom though; simply identifying this fact is also extremely constructive. When your mind is the only obstruction it is quite probable that you can deal with that and progress very quickly.
