As well as experiencing Anxiety, stress or low mood, how we think about things can also increase other negative emotions that can have an impact on our ability to enjoy life.
Low confidence & Low self-esteem
How we feel about ourselves has a dramatic impact on our behaviours as well as our emotional state. If we are prone to self-criticism, self-loathing or constantly comparing ourselves with others, we can undermine our self-confidence and destroy our self-belief, increasing our self-limiting and self-destructive thoughts and behaviours. Hypnotherapy can help to address such negative thoughts, helping you to uncover and re-affirm a positive sense of self, whilst encouraging you to build up emotional resilience that helps you to thrive and enjoy your life. Hypnotherapy can also help to deal with other issues that can impact on self-esteem, such as by helping you to overcome anxiety,stress, low mood or cope better with physical symptoms or behavioural issues, so that you can calmly deal with whatever life throws at you, feeling confident and in control.
Anger issues, guilt, relationship issues or avoidance
When we experience high levels of stress, we can also react with anger or frustration, which often intensifies the negative emotions we are experiencing and therefore adds to the problem. Similarly, if we experience jealousy or guilt, or have relationship issues, these can also undermine our self-confidence and self-belief, causing us to doubt ourselves and our judgement. At the other end of the scale, if we avoid conflict, or don’t set boundaries with others, we can feel hopeless, taken advantage of and undermined, which is also very damaging to our self-esteem. Whilst we can all experience such negative emotions from time to time, if we consistently think and act in ways that are detrimental to our emotional and physical well-being, we are likely to develop further problems. Hypnotherapy can help you to take control of negative thoughts,helping you to develop more effective coping strategies, find solutions and to help you to react in ways that are more beneficial to your well-being, increasing your confidence and self-worth.
