Rebuild your Self Confidence & Self Esteem with CBT / Hypnotherapy in Glasgow
A lot of us will say that we lack self-confidence. But what do we mean? We can recognise confidence in someone else, but what are the essential ingredients to our own self-confidence?
My view is that self-confidence is a belief that the things that you want to do are within your capability. Rather than self-confidence being a feeling, it's about believing you can take effective action.
Once you look at it this way, makes it easier to identify where confidence comes from and what you can do to get some more.
Self-esteem is a bit different. It is about seeing ourselves in a positive light with a healthy self-image.
Low self-esteem is often associated with a lack of self-confidence, and also with anxiety or low mood. These are all well-treated with Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy.
Ever thought you weren't up to it?
Well, fake it till you make it! Watch this great video and learn how not to feel a fraud any more!! I used to believe that everyone else seemed so confident. Now I realise that I don't know if they are or they are just putting on a front. Does that seem like cheating? Well, research shows that when you pretend to be confident, you learn how to be confident for real. Think of it as practicing a skill!
The most effective way of building your self-confidence is to try out challenging things so you prove to yourself that you can manage fine and and that nothing awful happens. Professor Raj Persaud, psychologist, defines self-confidence as the attitude that allows you to promise yourself, no matter how difficult the problem life throws at you, that you will try as hard as you can to help yourself. You acknowledge that sometimes your efforts to help yourself may not result in success. And even where you are successful, it may not be noticed or valued by other people.
