Self-Confidence Hypnosis – The Ultimate Guide

Do you want to feel more self-confident? Would you describe yourself as shy or someone who prefers to stay in the background? Have you avoided situations or people just in case you stood out or made a mistake? Everyone suffers from a lack of confidence at times. But what if this problem is impacting your life and you need to do something about it? This is where hypnosis for self-confidence can be used to help.

Hypnosis Confidence

Believe it or not no matter what you believe you were not born with a lack of confidence. At one point in your life, you were perfectly happy to explore your surroundings and try new things. Typically this would have been when you were a very young child.

Then something happened to create an impact on the way that you thought. This moment, incident or person made you question yourself and started to make you hesitate about doing what you used to do naturally. The more you started to avoid similar situations the harder it became to go back to how you were. At some point, you may have even stopped trying altogether. This is how a lack of confidence starts.

Hypnosis for Confidence aims to help you work out what caused the problem in the first place and then helps you to rebuild your natural resources by changing how you think.

Examples of Confidence Problems

To illustrate my point let’s look at some examples of what could cause a lack of confidence. Here are some true stories from some of our clients.

As a young child one client was playing football with his friends when his shorts ripped exposing his behind. All the children on the pitch stopped and started to stare and point. The client felt embarrassed, upset and mortified about the entire situation. From that point on he refused to go near the football field again. This avoidance led to worries of embarrassing himself again in front of others.

Another client had a domineering father who was always pushing his children to achieve the best marks. If they came home from school with anything less than an A they were made to feel stupid or not good enough. As they grew up they continued having a belief that they weren’t quite up to scratch and worried about everything they did in case they got it wrong.

Confidence issues tend to start in childhood and then adult situations can then compound them. Here are some possible reasons why you may lack confidence.

  • Anxiety-related confidence Issues
  • Imposter Syndrome
  • Social Anxiety and a fear of being judged or embarrassed
  • Feelings of not being good enough
  • Fear of failure
  • Worry about standing out
  • Perfectionism
  • Gender bias in your culture
  • Racial bias
  • Sexual Orientation

Self-Confidence Hypnosis helps people like you to see how the barriers that are holding you back can be broken.

What Can Self-Confidence Hypnosis be Used For?

Self-confidence hypnosis can be used in just about every aspect of your life but here are some specific uses that you might want to think about.

  • Interviews – Nervous about an interview then hypnosis can help to boost your confidence.
  • Driving – Do you lack confidence in driving? Hypnosis can help you to feel calmer and more in control.

  • Public Speaking – Hypnosis can help to reduce your nerves.
  • Career – Confidence coaching can assist you in earning more money as well as promotions
  • Exams – When you are confident in the exam room you are more likely to pass and remember what you have learned.

There are hundreds if not thousands of applications for hypnotherapy for confidence. All you need to ask yourself is whether there is an area in your life that you would like to improve on or where you want to reduce anxiety.

Hypnotherapy for Confidence

Hypnotherapy for confidence is a form of therapy that can help to change the way you think enabling you to create new positive thoughts feelings and actions.

A good clinical hypnotherapist with confidence coaching expertise works with you to find out where the barriers to your success are and then helps you to break every single one of them down. They do it in a number of ways.

Firstly there is the simple form of hypnosis which just involves suggestion and motivational affirmations. When you are in hypnosis you are more suggestible. So if you are particularly susceptible to hypnosis suggestions that you are going to feel more confident and try new things can sometimes be enough to start you on the road to trying new things.

More complex hypnosis pinpoints exactly what your mind has been trying to protect you from and starts to work by changing your whole thought process. Because a lack of confidence is just another example of anxiety. Fear stops you in your tracks so it becomes easier not to try. Hypnosis helps to eradicate fear so you can move forward.

The key with complex self-confidence hypnosis is finding out exactly what the mind is afraid of, This is where regression hypnosis may be used to help you remember the situation(s) that might have caused your problem so that therapy can be aimed at the exact problem rather than guessing.

Self-Esteem Hypnosis

Therapy should also be used to help you build self-esteem. Self-esteem hypnosis is a great way of bombarding your mind with positive messages to make it believe that it can do whatever it sets out to. The suggestions will also tell you that you are good enough and that you do deserve success.

Self-esteem building should also revolve around teaching you resilience. The problem many people have with confidence is that if something goes wrong or they fail they give up or stop trying altogether.

The reality is life shouldn’t be just black or white but many shades of grey. Do you see Elon Musk giving up space exploration because of a problem with one of the rockets at Space X? Of course not because resilience has taught him to look at the end game, not the short term problems. He knows that there will be failures along the way but each rocket launch that doesn’t quite go to plan will help his company to learn better ways of working.

Resilience training is important when building confidence. It helps you to weather knock-backs and get back up and keep on trying. This is so important in life because not everything is going to be straightforward. There will be times when things don’t go to plan but that is ok. Teaching yourself to work around problems will build confidence and your likelihood of success.

Self-Love Hypnosis

For many with confidence issues, it is also important to use self-love hypnosis. If you don’t believe in your worth or feel that you are not worthy of any success then you are not going to get very far. These problems can be deeply ingrained especially where there is childhood trauma such as bullying or abuse.

Self-confidence hypnosis can teach you to love yourself and make you care about what happens in your life. When you believe that you are deserving of good things in life it is easier to get out there and make them happen.

Self-love hypnosis can have a big bearing on relationships as well. We often see people who don’t love themselves entering into bad relationships because they think that nobody else would be interested. The relationships can be controlling, abusive or just lack love. When you learn to love yourself and know your worth you are less likely to be willing to settle for second best. You are more likely to ditch the bad partner and enjoy life instead of worrying about being alone.

Self-Belief Hypnosis

Self-belief hypnosis also is a form of confidence hypnotherapy that helps you to believe that you can do whatever you set your mind to. It is particularly used by elite sports stars to help them achieve success.

Before the US Open Jimmy Connors used hypnosis to help him improve his game. This is a perfect example of how suggestions given in the mind can impact the performance in the body.

Sports psychology is now huge business and most major teams and high achieving athletes are likely to have a mind coach. This is because equipment and skill are not enough to be right at the top of your game anymore. You also need to have a winning attitude.

Yet hypnosis does not have to be just used by those at the very top of their game. Increasing self-belief is important in all aspects of life.

If you want to get a new job, learn a new skill, meet a new partner then you need to have some self-belief that this can happen. Self-confidence hypnosis can help you to create a success mindset so that you go all out to achieve your goals.
