Melbourne Self-Confidence Hypnotherapy

People who are happy and successful in their careers and relationships often have a strong resilience to judgment, criticism and rejection. You can’t please all of the people all of the time and most happy and successful people know and accept this.

A good stage hypnotist can get the volunteers to believe all sorts of funny things which aren’t true. They behave in all sorts of funny ways and don’t seem to care what the audience thinks. They seem to lose their inhibitions.

In clinical hypnosis, hypnotic techniques are used to reduce fears and inhibitions. While the outcome is not very funny, it does often provide a great sense of relief to those suffering low self-esteem or social phobias.

If you don’t care when people are noticing you blush, you tend to blush less often. If you don’t care what people think about you, it’s much easier to be confident in a crowd. If you’re comfortable about the possibility of mucking up your speech, it’s much easier to relax and connect with the audience. If you don’t mind a bit of rejection, it’s a lot easier to relax when you ask that attractive person out for a date.

Usually the effect of clinical hypnosis is not as dramatic as stage hypnosis but nevertheless most clients do report being much more at ease in situations which, in the past, have been very stressful and inhibiting.

How Can Hypnosis Restore Self-Esteem and Self-Confidence?

Where did your parents learn their parenting skills? Where did your grand parents learn theirs? Did any of them have lessons or training in how to raise children in ways which promote good self-esteem and self-confidence?

Generally parents try to do their best with the skills and resources they have available. Unfortunately many dysfunctional parenting styles have been passed down through the generations, from a time when fear and negativity were an accepted means of raising children. Corporate managerial classes often teach the system of ‘two thirds praise and one third criticism’. However many children grow up in families where 99% criticism is the rule.

Frequently the school experience can also be one of judgment, criticism and rejection. An eight year old child doesn’t realise the reason she can’t do that maths problem is because her brain is less developed than her 11 month older classmate. She just thinks she is dumb at maths. Bullying by fellow students also takes its toll. Is it any wonder such a large percentage of the population have self-esteem issues?

All of these insults on our self-identity can be very painful and it’s a natural response to run and hide from things which have previously hurt you. This is true for both physical and emotional pain and this is why many people live in fear of environments or situations which have the potential to invoke judgment, criticism or rejection.

A child is made to read in front of the class. He mucks it up and his friends laughed at him. He sits back down feeling embarrassed and humiliated. Twenty years later he still has a fear of public speaking.

People with low self-esteem often run themselves into a state of mental and physical exhaustion trying to create an identity or lifestyle which receives minimal negative judgment and maximum likelihood of praise. Perfectionism, avoidance and a wide variety of social phobias are often driven by these sorts of fears.
