Confidence is considered a state of mine. When you feel confident, you accept yourself and you tend to believe more in your abilities. When you don’t feel confident or else have low levels of it, you could then become stressed, anxious, unfulfilled, and – ultimately – unhappy.
Surprisingly, low self-confidence is something many people all over the world suffer from. It can be caused by several different factors such as fear of the unknown, low self-esteem, and fear of what other people have to say about you. This lack of confidence can then hold you back from developing both personally and professionally.
Hypnotherapy for Confidence
Have you ever met someone who, despite of the constant reassurance and approval, lacks confidence in their own abilities? Or perhaps you know someone who thinks that they're awesome at what they're good at, despite people telling them otherwise?
This happens because the unconscious mind holds a set of beliefs about us that stay the same, regardless of the external factors. So how do you overcome these beliefs? As they happen unconsciously, that's where you need to make the change.
Hypnotherapy accesses the unconscious mind and uses the power of suggestion to help facilitate the positive change. These suggestions can be tailored to help improve confidence levels.
Generally, these suggestions will be positive and will be made in present tense. The theory behind this is that the unconscious mind can't differentiate between statements like “you have” and “you no longer have”.
What Happens During a Hypnotherapy Session
To start your hypnotherapy Adelaide session, the hypnotherapist will talk to you about what you want to achieve through hypnotherapy. They will most likely ask questions about your past to try and establish any root causes or triggers for the way you feel.
They'll then explain how the therapy works, explaining the process for you to know what to expect. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask the hypnotherapist. When you’re both satisfied with what you plan to do, the session will start.
You’ll be guided into a highly relaxed state where it may seem as if you’re sound asleep, but you’re actually not; you’ll be 100% aware of what’s happening throughout the session. Once you’re in that state, your hypnotherapist will communicate with your unconscious mind, using questions and suggestive statements to challenge your limiting beliefs.
The statements utilized will depend on your personal circumstances and it will relate to almost any particular confidence problem you feel you have.
The philosophy behind hypnotherapy is that when your unconscious mind believes that you're confident, it will transfer to your conscious mind and influence your actions. Thus, this changes your thought patterns and actions to help improve your confidence level.
What Happens After The Hypnotherapy Session?
The number of sessions you'll need will depend entirely on your personal circumstances; however, this is something you need to discuss with your hypnotherapist. After the session, it's more likely that your hypnotherapist will recommend you to listen to pre-recorded sessions regularly to reiterate the suggestions.
Your hypnotherapist may also teach you some self-hypnosis methods to use as and when you need them. Listening to recordings and carrying out self-hypnosis are easy ways to continue working on your confidence levels once the session is all over.
That's about everything you need to know about how hypnotherapy can help give your self-confidence level a boost.
However, you should also remember that you must find a licensed practitioner to do the job for you. There are a lot of people out there claiming that they're skilled in hypnotherapy for weight loss, quitting smoking or any other hypnotherapy areas. Just find the right hypnotherapist and you're good to go.
