Confidence & Self Esteem - Clinical Hypnotherapy

Self confidence refers to having faith in your own abilities and is seen in a number of ways, such as in an individual s body language, the way they speak, how they react to certain situations and their behaviour.  Having high levels of self confidence can have huge benefits for all areas of an individual’s life, including relationships, career, social life and state of mind. Those with high levels of confidence are often more positive about their abilities and have a positive outlook in life.

Those with low confidence and self-esteem can often feel:

  • Uncertain of themselves or their needs
  • Shy and uneasy
  • Uncomfortable in certain situations
  • Negative thoughts about themselves
  • Sense of worthlessness

Usually lack of self confidence and low self esteem is placed in the mind at a young age either by a parent, sibling or carer, intentionally or unintentionally. The young mind grows into an adult mind and the belief of being “not good enough” or “unworthy” or “incompetent” is firmly planted so that the negative belief is maintained throughout life.

The good news is that self confidence is a skill that can be developed and built upon until the level of confidence required becomes a deeply ingrained quality.  The Thames Valley Hypnotherapy Clinic has high success rates for helping those with confidence issues to help modify your belief systems and replace any negative thought patterns with more positive ones helping you to make lasting and more positive changes in your life.

Hypnotherapy for Confidence and Self Esteem


As a practicing Social Worker working in a large city I find that the demands upon me are extreme to the point of exhaustion. My energy levels, self-confidence were constantly being challenged, I was beginning a downward spiral into depression & self-doubt, and my gp offered anti-depressants which I did not wish to prescribe too, a colleague recommended sourcing  alternative therapies to manage my symptoms & also my self doubt , low esteem,  ……….

I came across the Thames Valley hypnotherapy clinic that claimed to be able to assist me to manage & re-balance my priorities.

I must admit that I was dubious at first, as a Social Worker I was trained to either look at the Social Model or Medical Model of practice, this was something totally alien to me. It all sounded a bit odd.

I thought Id throw caution to the wind & have a session with my clinical therapist Wendy.

From the very first  consultation Wendy  was able to relax & calm my mind , Her technique was soothing , she approached me from a person centred point of view encouraging  me to give as much information about my issues to her as I felt comfortable with , I did not feel under pressure.

My first session involved Wendy talking to me in a soothing /calming voice, Wendy not highlighting any of my issues  she was able to bring my sub-conscious mind into a relaxed state, I felt sleepy but conscious , at a place where I was in control but in a very relaxed state.

At this stage Wendy spoke to my sub-conscious mind encouraging me to regain control of my being, able to overcome the issues that caused me self-doubt , giving my confidence a boost , enabling me to deal with issues within my working life.

 When Wendy brought me back out of my unconscious state I was surprised to find out that I had been “asleep” ( ?) for 40 minutes, it felt like 10 minutes. I awoke in a calm /relaxed state, as though I had had a relaxing massage.

I must admit that I was not immediately aware of the benefit,  however, as the weeks progressed, I grew in strength & confidence, I was able to deal with challenges, I was not becoming stressed out and able to feel more content within my working & personal life, challenges that I faced were not consequential in life’s complex tapestry.

I would recommend Clinical Hypnotherapy to anyone facing various issues, from my own experience I found Wendy & her approach exemplary.
