How will I be helped with low confidence/low self esteem?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy will help you to deal with and permanently change your negative thought patterns to positive ones. You currently may feel that you can't do or achieve something because of your low self belief. In order for you to challenge these negative thoughts however, you first need to understand what triggers your lack of confidence. You need to understand what it is that holds you back.The effective use of CBT in the clinic will help you establish this. Some of the reasons behind low confidence and low self esteem may:
Whatever it is that's creating your lack of confidence, you will be helped effectively with your symptoms. Cognitive behavioural therapy, (CBT) is the preferred method of treatment recommended by the NHS to facilitate change. The aims of cognitive behavioural therapy are to help you change the way that you think, feel and behave so to make your low confidence feelings a thing of the past.
Paul will help you to challenge your negative beliefs to determine the possibility against what you consider to be a probable outcome. At present it is your thoughts of a probable outcome which produce your low confidence feelings. Once you are able to look at an event or impending event in a new positive way then the levels of your anxiety will start to diminish. You will learn to believe in yourself. You will learn and believe that you can achieve and be successful. Your old negative thinking patterns will be a thing of the past.
People often say they want to “feel more confident.” However, therapists know that there’s a marked tendency for their clients to confuse thoughts and feelings. I would suggest that self-confidence is a thought, or rather a belief, more specifically: a form of self-belief. It’s perhaps best defined as the belief that you can do something well, i.e., that something is within your power and ability. Perceived coping ability is called “secondary appraisal” because it is logically preceded by a “primary appraisal” concerning the difficulty of the demands being faced. The more primary (and less conscious) belief that a situation is highly threatening is often confused with belief in one’s ability to cope. In other words, people who feel they lack confidence are, at a deeper level, often over-estimating (catastrophising) how difficult or threatening the situation they face is.
To build self confidence and overcome low self esteem you will change how you feel emotionally about youreself. To change your emotion will require in changing two different core beliefs about self image. The first core belief is that you are not good enough. The second core belief is to change the image of success that we feel we should have attained. When your mind has an image of success that you should have attained it associates happy emotions with that picture. The mind does a comparison between the image of perfection and how you see your current self image. The comparison results in judgement and self rejection for not meeting the image of perfection. The self rejection results in feeling unworthy and of low self esteem.
The second belief is to disolve is that you are inadequate or somehow not good enough. These are the beliefs that create emotions of insecurity and fear. The emotions are not the problem, they are just the resulting symptom of negative core beliefs. The, 'not good enough image' is a construct of your own imagination. It is a belief created by the mind concluding that we are not good enough to meet the image of perfection.
Helping you to change the 'not good enough', image is much easier once you have been helped to break the belief in the image of perfection. Without the image of perfection you no longer have the comparison reinforcing the 'unworthy' self image.
The majority of the time when people display negative dysfunctional thinking, they do so without any evidence or fact to support the thought. The thoughts have a negative impact on you because you truely believe them thus encouraging you to to worry more. What makes the feelings of low confidence and low self esteem debilitating, is that you have learned to believe the thoughts that you have as if there was complete fact to the thought. I will help you to challenge these thoughts and equally help you to manage situations you currently feel inadequate.
Rather than just trying to not to have the thoughts, you will be encouraged to feel more positive in smaller, attainable and achievable steps. We will work together through the issues behind your current feelings of low confidence and low self esteem and help you to manage the way you think. Working with you in this way, will give you the confidence to push yourself another small step and eventually be able to deal with situations without even thinking about how you feel about yourself.
You will start to believe your new thoughts because of the behavioural experiments will devise in the clinic. Cognitive Behavioural therapy for low confidence and low self esteem is very pro-active. The sessions do not just involve sitting there and telling me how you are feeling. We work together on understanding how you are feeling, how those thoughts affect your current behaviour and then work on the behavioural aspect of the treatment in helping you change how you feel about yourself.
With your commitment, determination and desire to change the way you currently respond and feel, and with the expert treatment for low confidence and low self esteem offered at the Life Change Wellbeing Clinic, you will be helped to feel differently about yourself and your abilities without the feelings of anxiousness and with the knowledge that should you feel any anxiety about your confidence issues, you know you will have the tools to manage it.
You will not just be helped to feel better about yourself but you will also be helped to fix the emotion behind the the way you feel. By releasing the emotion behind the way you feel about you and your abilities, you will become free from your emotions of low confidence and low self esteem and feel calmer in your every day life and be more assertive in your belief about yourself.
Having worked with many scores of people with anxiety
based symptoms, I can safely predict that with careful treatment, I will
be able to help you manage your thoughts, feelings and emotions behind your low confidence and low self esteem
in a way that is satisfactory and beneficial to you and others around
