Confidence is the positive feeling which arises from knowing you are able to achieve something. It means thinking and feeling that you are able to face all the challenges in your life. It can be small challenges, like getting up in the morning or big challenges like starting a new job, course or business. To feel confident you need to believe in yourself and your own skills and value. It does not matter what the challenge is, because if you want to do it but just can’t face it – then it is a problem and you need to think about getting help.
A lack of confidence often goes hand in hand with anxiety, because if you cannot face doing something, that will cause you stress and anxiety – just thinking about it, let alone trying to do it! Confidence affects every area of your life, your work, your relationships, friendships, education, health, even having to talk to shop assistants when you go shopping! It affects everything you do and also how you feel about yourself. Feeling afraid or anxious about having to do things is likely to result in further self criticism, as you think “why can’t I do this like everyone else”. It is massive! It’s about feeling inadequate and not good enough all of the time, somehow less than other people, which is draining and sad. Nobody wants to feel second best or inferior to everyone else and it is easy to understand why anxiety and sometimes depression can follow.

Naturally confident people often don’t understand how incredibly disabling lacking confidence really is. They think saying “don’t worry, it’ll be fine” will make everything better, but it doesn’t. A lack of confidence is a deep seated feeling, a part of who you are – a real fear that underpins all aspects of daily life and influences your choices and decisions. Pretending to be confident can help, but does not always work and in the meantime, takes a lot of energy. A lack of confidence is often caused by too much criticism in childhood, which conditions your mind into thinking you will make mistakes and get everything wrong. People never stop to think that of course they got things wrong and made mistakes because they were a child! Children are learners at everything so will naturally make many mistakes. Instead the child grows up to be an adult who feels not good enough and focuses on their fears.
Fortunately there is help available in the form of hypnotherapy which is not about pretending, it actually cuts through the fears and enables you to tap into the natural confidence you were born with. It helps you to release your negative beliefs about yourself which you learnt from others in the past. By releasing these old restrictive beliefs and self doubt, you can be freed to discover your own strength and potential. Hypnotherapy replaces the negative thought processes and uses the subconscious mind to change your focus from being self critical and fearful to being positive and confident. It uses light trance work and psychotherapy and is suitable for children and young people, as well as adults.
The person must want to make the changes, themselves, and results vary from person to person.
