The popular image of one must be the best in everything is what drives people to push themselves to achieve unimaginable things.
The heights of their achievements often measure the successes of their lives. Unfortunately, not everyone can comfortably function this way.
Looking Into Yourself
For some people living with all these expectations eventually cause them to withdraw and worse still, look upon themselves as failures. This is popularly known as having low self-image.
Upon reaching this level, there are some people who are able to come to the realization that they need help. They are willing to consider changing for the better with the help of others. This help can come in the form of hypnotherapy.
Hypnotherapy can help the individual to identify the thing that is causing them to “hold back,” give excuses, or fail by simply giving them back their self-esteem.
To gain some level of positive self-image, self-confidence, or self-esteem, the hypnotherapist will encourage the change in the mind set from negative thoughts and ideas to positive thoughts and ideas whenever challenges, crisis, or other opportunities present itself.
A damaged self-image can manifest as a result of many and repeated negative messages the brain receives.
In trying to create a buffer for the pain the individual resorts to a negative image or lifestyle, thus effectively giving the opportunity for using this change as an excuse for the state of low self-image.
The hypnotherapist will have to first bring the individual to a state of calm relaxation before attempting to start the reassuring process to edify the positive thoughts that are to be suggested into the subconscious.
Assurance of being loved, respected, acknowledged are some of what the individual needs to feel and accept.
The process is long and difficult because of having to erase years of negative elements with positive ones but it is well worth the effort.
