Self-Confidence is often the difference between getting what you want from life, or not. People without self-confidence don’t believe they are capable of getting what they want, and so they don’t. The opposite is also true. Self-confident people tend to get what they want from life because they believe in their ability to get what they want. One of the rules of the mind is: “what the mind expects to happen tends to be realised” and so people that expect to succeed generally tend to do so. Being self-confident is not the same as being arrogant.

The level of self-confidence a person has is conditioned. This conditioning usually starts at an early age and is compounded through time. Children that are taught that they are capable of success find evidence to support this every time they succeed at something. Children taught they are incapable find evidence to support this knowledge every time they fail at something. This knowledge then becomes the child’s belief. The child then grows into an adult carrying the same belief system and consistently producing the same results.

Henry Ford said it best when he said: “If you think you can do a thing or you think you can’t do a thing, you’re right”. This thinking referred to by Henry Ford is usually done unconsciously by the person doing the thinking due to this person’s prior conditioning.

The Role of Hypnosis Treatment in Boosting Self-Esteem and Confidence

“Love yourself!”

This is the message we see everywhere. From TV ads to superhero comics, we are told that if we just have faith in ourselves, we can accomplish anything.

But of course, a tiny voice in our head screams “NO!”. And while we know that we can’t get to all those great heights that we wish we could, through belief alone, there are several studies that suggest that we can come really close.

Unfortunately, a lot of us experience low self-esteem and confidence at some point inour lives. Normally, this can happen because of a specific event or incident, and mostly, we’ll heal on our own. It is only when the feeling of not being worthy or valuable enough lingers around for a long time that things can start to get dangerous— for your health, work, and even your life.

According to a study, low self-esteem is one of the most important factors in the development of suicidal tendencies in adolescents.

So what to do about it and is there anything that helps?

The short answer—yes.

While there is very little that medicine can do to help boost self-esteem and confidence, hypnosis, works wonderfully.

How Hypnosis Helps Boost Self-esteem

Self-esteem is formed during the early years of childhood and adolescence. This belief system about ourselves becomes deep-seated in our subconscious and stays with us our entire life. It becomes a lens for us through which we perceive the rest of the world.

In order to overcome beliefs that dwell deep in our subconscious, we’d need to access it first. This is where Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy come in.

Hypnosis uses a combination of imagination and the power of suggestion to access the subconscious mind and facilitate positive change. According to your particular set of struggles, these suggestions can be tailored to boost your confidence and generate a positive self image. Generally, these will be in the present tense.

The life changing improvement that hypnotherapy can bring is not just hype—it is backed by science and research too.

A research study on improving confidence with soccer players revealed that hypnosis can pose a massive boost in self-efficacy, positive self-image, as well a good soccer efficiency. This means that not only can the therapy help with self-esteem and confidence, but it also has a direct impact on your performance.

Another study on the effect of hypnotic training programs on the academic performance of students concluded that hypnotherapy enhanced the level of self confidence in learning-disabled children.
