The subconscious mind – our “inner voice” – controls quite a bit about how we feel about ourselves. These thoughts are automatic and deeply embedded in our minds. You look in the mirror – and bam! – the subconscious tells you not to like what you see. It happens unconsciously, automatically. They aren’t based in fact – and were very often bedded in childhood. A person with a particularly critical parent, or somebody who was bullied at school may find they struggle with low self-esteem.
Solid confidence and self-esteem are the foundations of a healthy, happy life.
Hypnosis can be very effective for improving self-esteem because it works directly with the subconscious - where the negative thoughts about ourselves are embedded.
The aim of hypnosis to improve self esteem is to ‘talk’ directly to your subconscious, change negative thinking patterns and encourage more positive reactions. So rather than a critical voice of fear, our subconscious can be taught to be supportive.
When we’re in a state of hypnosis (which is like deep relaxation or meditation) our subconscious is more open to suggestion. A hypnotherapist can then use suggestion techniques to help uncover negative responses and rewrite them to be more positive.
