Life can be complicated when your self-esteem is on the floor, or your confidence has gone. Not feeling good enough is bad enough. But it creates a severely debilitating situation for the many people who suffer from anxiety around self-esteem and confidence when it brings on anxiety too. It can happen to anyone at any time. Anxiety affects different people in different ways. Trust me; it's a fascinating subject when you are not living through it.
Clients often describe anxiety around self-esteem and confidence as the person not feeling like themselves.
Others say that when anxiety takes away their self-confidence, it is as though it simultaneously takes away their freedom.
Anxiety can feel paralysing as it hijacks your body and mind. It's a destructive force that knocks your self-confidence to the floor and peels away your confidence to do things and undertake tasks that you used to take in your stride.
Symptoms of low self-esteem and lack of confidence include:
· Comparing yourself with other people in a negative way
· Avoiding change
· Worry and anxiety attacks about everyday things
· Negative self-criticism and not feeling good enough
· Fear of meeing new tpeople
· Afraid to stand out or be noticed
· Fear of rejection
It can be part of a wider anxiety condition such as generalised anxiety disorder or a stand-alone problem for the individual.
Regaining your self-esteem and confidence through solution focussed hypnotherapy empowers you to reset. By learning how to remove the negativity from your unconscious mind, you gain self-esteem and confidence and have a toolbox to use to reinforce your mind to positivity. Just having the courage to reach out and start therapy is in itself a huge boost to the confidence of some clients.
