Self Esteem - Because You're Worth It lwp

People often confuse self esteem with self confidence. When you’re outwardly positive and have no problems talking to other people or trusting in your abilities to perform certain tasks you’re talking about self confidence. Self esteem on the other hand is how we feel about ourselves on the inside. Experiences we have had in the past and how we have dealt with them over time shape it.

How we grow up has a massive effect on our self esteem. Coming from a loving home our parents respect us, listen to us, and value us, and celebrate our successes will increase it. Neglect, abuse or constant ridicule and highlighting of our failures at every opportunity damage it. Sometimes, even a loving home cannot shield us from experiences growing up. Bullies at school or at work, buying into unrealistic ideals of beauty or success or even a severe accident or illness that can seriously knock our self esteem.

Signs that a person is suffering from low self esteem can include:

  • Feeling hopeless or depressed
  • Strong fear of failure or fear of being “found out” as a failure
  • Constantly looking to others for guidance
  • Being clingy and needy
  • Feeling worthless
  • Having no motivation
  • Being hypersensitive to criticism

People with low self esteem often find it difficult to hold on to meaningful relationships. They don’t feel worthy of being loved and frequently self-sabotage.

Hypnotherapy can help to improve Self Esteem

Improvement in the way people feel is possible though. Recognising there is a pattern and wanting to improve your situation are, as always, a first step and hypnotherapy can help with moving away from negative self-talk and self-destructive behavioural patterns by accessing both your conscious and your subconscious mind.

The first step is to understand the root causes for your low self esteem and uncovering your internal negative talk with the help of your hypnotherapist. Together you can then work to change the pattern to a positive one that will support you rather than bring you down on a daily basis. You’ll work on your attitudes and change your negative beliefs into positive ones.
