As a Confidence Hypnotherapist and Coach people want to work me as they want to improve their confidence to be more confident at work, or more confident in social situations.
Many do not understand how confidence works.If we just work on building up and improving the confidence most likely after a few weeks or a month or so the person will be back to where they have started.
Confidence isn’t the issue. Confidence is a result. It's is a state of being based on actions, self beliefs, resources and skills coming together.
By asking the right high level questions we can get to the core fairly quickly and often confidence isn’t the issue.
Let me explain. If someone wants to be more confident at work as they want a promotion. It’s essential we look at where they are within their skill set, what resources they have and what they need to develop. Once we have done that then we can work with confidence, creating a confidence state.
Another example is if someone wants to be more confident socially and to engage with others with ease and comfort. They perhaps may not know how to use their resources to do this, or perhaps may need a session on social communication skills so once we work on that deep level we then bind the skills and resources to create a confidence state.
There are times when a person has all the resources and skills within them yet they still do not feel confident. This is when it’s essential to explore their self-beliefs. What does their inner voice say to them or how does their self-belief holds them back. When self beliefs are aligned with resources and skill set then we can work with confidence.
As you see low confidence is not the issue. At the core is often self-belief, lack of knowledge, underdeveloped resources and skills – and when these areas have been addressed then we can work on confidence – if required.
Confidence is the result of your inner world – self-beliefs, resources and skills aligning to create a confident state.
This is essential for long-term success.
