Self Esteem


Does low self esteem show up in your life? Low self esteem is related to inner self worth, feeling good enough, worthy or loveable.

It is believed that issues with self-esteem stem from childhood. It’s the negative stuff that we tend to hold on to, pushing aside all the positive experiences we have. Our relationships with our parents, family, friends, and teachers can shape the opinions we hold about ourselves.

During adolescence we struggle to feel comfortable in our bodies and/or accepted by our peers. Sometimes it’s a significant life event such as abuse, illness, or even a betrayal that can cause self-esteem to plummet as we blame ourselves for the things that happen to us. It can be debilitating to be prevented from achieving things in life because of low self esteem. It might stop you leaving, finding and maintaining a relationship. Enjoying a fulfilling and healthy life can seem impossible.
Self esteem shows itself in different aspects of life including eating and body dysmorphic disorders, addictions, depression, workaholism, hypersensitivity, and self sabotaging routines.
You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection
- Gautama Buddha

Hypnotherapy for self-esteem
can identify and challenge any negative behaviour patterns you hold and encourage positive change through the power of suggestion.

In the deeply relaxed state of hypnosis, your subconscious is more receptive to ego boosting suggestions than through conscious speech. The primary aim is to encourage self-empowerment and reduce any negative self-talk you have. Thus promoting the development of long-term, healthy self-esteem.

In a clinical study using hypnosis for relapse prevention training with chronic drug/alcohol users, individuals who used self-hypnosis reported the highest levels of self-esteem and serenity, and the least anger/impulsivity, in comparison to other groups.
