  • A lack of confidence is fear based.
  • A chronic lack of confidence results in poor decision making, ineffectual action and ultimately a life that ends with regret.
  • A lack of confidence shows up in our social interactions.
  • Poor decision making impacts both our personal and professional lives. 
  • Creating the thought, feeling and behaviour patterns of a confident person allows for greater satisfaction in every life area.
  • Confidence is sexy and attracts opportunities.
  • Confidence construction requires some level of self-discovery.
  • Confidence is often not a part of our social programming. 
  • Our identity is a combination of innate preferences and social programming that pushes our original potential into the back seat.
  • Constructing a confident persona requires deliberate subconscious restructuring.
  • Fear based responses when not addressed, can lead to the following: stress responsesanxiety, anger, depression and addiction issues.

Whether you want to build confidence for the boardroom, the living room or the bedroom hypnosis, neuro linguistic programming and solution focused coaching can support the development of a more confident persona. People who are confident move and speak in a very particular manner. People who are confident have a specific set of beliefs.

We are not necessarily born with "confidence" but we can begin to systematically train our brain to accept a more confident persona. People who are confident are more to have their needs met in healthy manners. 

Almost everyone grew up with amateur parents. Parents often unknowingly instill feelings of self doubt and inferiority in their offspring. Then as we begin to grow up we are inundated with messaging from the world around us and and this deflates our growing self esteem.

It can be rough out there.

What we are demonstrating now, is not the only possibility. If we are not satisfied with our identity we can take responsibility for changing it with a little help and a few new tools. We tend to respect people who exude confidence. They seem to be more trustworthy.  There is something about the demonstration of composure and grace of confident people that excites us.

After the early years, our school systems pick up the reins and continue with the socializing process. Constant grading and evaluation leave many people feeling that they do not measure up somehow and there is often a feeling of shame. These dynamics continue on in the play ground of life...the boardroom, the living room and the bedroom. Self esteem and confidence are closely connected. Self discovery work coupled with hypnosis nlp programming is powerful. We can begin to program a new response, for the life we want to live today.

Shame and blame are cornerstones of shaping behavior. (You will learn about the influences of social programming in the required workbook).

We often see children who are fretful and unsure of themselves and this carries over into adulthood.

Sometimes we see a relatively confident adult who experiences a set back with the stress of life transitions and the subconscious mind gets "stuck" on this experience. 

Hypnosis and nlp coaching for confidence building and improving self image can positively impact all areas of a person's life. 

Most people seek out support for confidence building for the work place, intimate relationships and social anxiety. A sense of self-assurance and mastery in the ability to communicate and present oneself well is important in these areas. 

If we look at confidence from a perspective of having been programmed then we can begin to teach the subconscious mind to accept a healthy image of a confident self. Early programming aside, the premise of this work is that there is nothing "wrong" with you, over time you simply have conditioned a response that you have now chosen to manage in new ways.

Your current beliefs about yourself simply need to be upgraded. People who are confident have a certain type of internal dialogue that serves them. Using hypnosis, basic learning strategies and applying the principles of conditioning we can begin to alter internal processes and behaviors so that you can build confidence and feel more sure about your performance in any arena.

The majority of individuals who access services at Hypnosis for Life have, at one time or another made good use of: 1) traditional clinical psychology services  2) medication  3) community counselling, 12 step programs and/or treatment centers.

These options provide initial needed relief, however, relapse is common. Challenges tend to re-occur until the subconscious mind has fully accepted and absorbed new paths of least resistance.
