Confidence & Self-Esteem
Self-esteem is how you feel about yourself. Self-confidence is how you feel about your abilities. Many of us have issues with one or both of these things.
Many people feel confident in some activities and unconfident in others – and it is only when they must do the latter tasks (perhaps they must give a wedding speech, or a presentation at work) that their lack of confidence becomes an issue.
Some people need help with sports performance or exam performance.
Others lack confidence in general, possibly because they suffer from low self-esteem.
In today’s more connected, social media world, with ever more public (and critical) scrutiny of every element of our lives, our confidence and self-esteem may be more challenged than ever.
Real or perceived peer pressure, peer criticism and bullying (including cyber bullying) have profound influences on confidence and self-esteem.(www.psychologytoday.com | www.selfesteem.dove.co.uk)Women in the UK have one of the lowest self-esteem scores in the world, with just 20% saying they liked the way they looked. 9 in 10 women opt out of important life activities and stop themselves from eating or otherwise put their health at risk when they don’t feel good about the way they look. Plenty of men and children also suffer from low self-esteem and/or low confidence. Confident people perform better.
Since experiencing the deep and beautiful work that Steve does, I notice that I am able to enjoy the process of performing and creating, without the ancient terror and possibility of shame and failure holding me back.
There are several techniques we can use to help boost your confidence or self-esteem. In a hypnotic state, the conscious and unconscious parts of the mind are more accessible, and more open to influence and change. It is therefore easier to get to the heart of an issue, and easier to process any unresolved issues while in a hypnotic state.
We believe that you carry within you (within your subconscious) all the resources you need to help moderate, manage, or boost your confidence and self-esteem – but you may benefit from some expert assistance to help you get in touch with those inner resources.
