Can Hypnosis Help Low Self Esteem?
What’s wrong with me?
I can’t do anything right!
Why can’t I be like…?
Do you find yourself asking these questions? Or maybe you’re aware that one of your children or another loved one is pretty “hard” on themselves.
As a rule, you are your own worst critic, but when your “inner critic” is too harsh too often, you can end up underachieving, lonely and isolated, your health can suffer and the feeling of hopelessness can take over. You have low self esteem when:
- Your good points are overlooked
- You can’t put past mistakes in the past
- You are unable to handle criticism
- You are afraid to try new things socially, academically or career-wise
- To sum it up, your quality of life is negatively affected
Your self esteem – your opinion of yourself and who you are – plays an extremely important part in how you live your life.
What causes low self esteem?
Often it appears in children or adults who grew up in dysfunctional family situations where they may have been abused or neglected. Or maybe they were bullied or picked on in school. It could also be attributed to a non-abusive parent who has low self esteem themselves, and as we all know, children pick up the characteristics and traits of their parents.
But all low self esteem doesn’t come from childhood. Many adults can be faced with traumatic experiences that can cause negative feelings about yourself. They could be caused by:
- Career problems
- Financial problems
- Failed relationships
Facing these types of life challenges causes us all to take a good hard look at ourselves, and that’s all right. But if too much time is spent dwelling on or obsessing over them, self-confidence begins to suffer and self esteem is lost.
How can Hypnotherapy help?
We are all different, which means the reasons for low self esteem and the approach to building self esteem is different for everyone. That is why hypnotherapy is a great approach. Each person is assessed individually to connect with who you really are, to develop a greater sense of self, and build greater belief in yourself. It can help you see yourself through different eyes.
Hypnosis is a way of re-educating your subconscious mind so you will be more in control of your life.
