Self-confidence

Building Your Self Confidence With NLP and Hypnotherapy

When you have problems with self confidence, they can show up in your life in many different ways.  You might feel shy, or you might avoid situations where you have to stand up for your own opinions.  In very severe cases, the lack of self confidence can create severe anxiety.  Regardless of where you fall in this range, your problem with self confidence can be resolved using NLP and hypnotherapy.

Creating Self Confidence With New Patterns

The first step to building your self confidence is understanding that your feelings, thoughts, and behaviours are all connected.  Each one influences the other two, creating a web of activity that drives your level of self confidence.  When you lack self confidence, it means your pattern of feelings, thoughts, and behaviours are out of balance and not productive.  All you have to do to build up your self confidence, then is to change these patterns for the better.


In studies of people with high levels of self esteem, we find their thought patterns are set up in a way that allows them to feel confident about themselves and their actions, creating the kind of results they want.  They have the ability to access all of their resources and be flexible in using them, regardless of the situation they face.


When you have low levels of self confidence, the patterns are just the opposite.  Your thoughts and imagination are set up to expect failure or disappointment in your abilities, which of course creates those kinds of results.  Once you interrupt those patterns, breaking out of them and adopting new, more positive patterns, your self confidence starts to grow.


As your patterns change, you can do even more to train yourself to be more self confident.  Repeating the patterns over and over again helps them to become automatic, acting as a foundation for your self confidence.  You can also learn specific conscious techniques to use in specific situations that you find especially challenging, giving you a powerful tool to access when you need a little boost or assistance.

How NLP And Hypnotherapy Build Your Self Confidence

NLP and hypnotherapy build your self confidence by treating both your conscious and your unconscious mind.  Your practitioner helps you identify patterns of thought that are not serving you well, and teaches you how to replace them with new, more productive patterns of thought.  You learn new ways to use your imagination and more positive ways to talk to yourself, creating the strength and flexibility necessary to achieve true self confidence.


It is really best described as education for your brain, because that’s exactly what happens.  Your mind is taught to let go of the habits and behaviours that reduce your self confidence, and replace them with the habits and behaviours that increase your self confidence.  The techniques used come from many years of studying how those with high self esteem get there and stay there, and then teaching you how to replicate those results for yourself.  Before long you will notice a huge difference in the way you talk to yourself, think about yourself, and behave in every situation you encounter.

How Long Will Treatment Take?

Because NLP and hypnotherapy are so powerful when it comes to improving self confidence, the average length of treatment is usually no more than two or three one-hour sessions.  Combining the conscious tools of NLP with the unconscious tools of hypnotherapy produces amazing results in a short period of time.
