Many people are keen to increase their self confidence using hypnotherapy. Most clients have the idea that they lack confidence and that hypnosis and NLP will give it to them. I have a different take on this. I believe that we are all born with our full quota of confidence. Think of a young baby. Do you imagine that they suffer from low self esteem? That they wonder whether they can ask for what they want? Usually they let their needs be known with a demanding cry! What happens to most people who consider that they lack confidence is that their innate confidence has been undermined by their life circumstances – mostly when they were growing up. Hypnosis and NLP is simply a way of uncovering and empowering the client’s natural confidence. And it works extremely well.
