Self Hypnosis for Confidence- 7 Marvelous Benefits for Your Life

By Susanna Sweeney, MSC, MBACP, CHT

Self hypnosis for confidence is a great way to nurture your subconscious mind so that you can start to feel good about yourself and confident about anything you may want to achieve in life. This article is designed to bring you its most prominent benefits so that you can see whether self hypnosis may be helpful for you.

1. Self Hypnosis for Confidence Nurtures Your Mind

What do I mean by 'nurturing the mind' and why is this important? Good question.

Think about a child growing up. Their parents or care givers have to 'hold' their sense of self confidence initially until their brains mature and can- bit by bit- integrate self confidence into their self concept, into the way they see themselves in the world.

This process takes many years, and throughout this time, these are some examples for what holding a child's sense of confidence looks like:

  • The child is reluctant to climb on a climbing frame. Mum says: "Go on, you can do it." The child climbs up the climbing frame, falls and gets hurt. They cry and say: "I shouldn't have climbed in the first place. I knew I would get hurt." Mum consoles him or her and responds: "You poor pet, you really got hurt. But, you know, your knee will feel better soon. It will heal in a couple of days. Don't let this put you off climbing- look how much fun the other kids are having! And the more you practice climbing, the easier it will become. I bet soon enough you will make it to the very top ."
  • The child has done badly in a school exam. Dad says: "Don't worry about it- you can do better next time."
  • The child says they want to become an astronaut when they grow up. Mum and dad smile and say: "Sure, you can become whatever you want to when you grow up."

You get the idea- when the child falters and does not believe in themselves, the parents prop them up, encourage and support them until eventually, many years down the line, the child as a young adult has internalized this unshakable belief in himself or herself that "I can do anything."

Thing is--- that is what happens in an ideal world. And few of us have grown up in an ideal world. Even if your parents were great at boosting your confidence,  often there is that teacher, or principal, or coach, or nanny, or aunt, or uncle who is set upon "taking you down a notch"-  basically knocking your confidence and belief in yourself. Find out examples of how this can play out in my article on confidence hypnosis. (negative)

Psychologists used to believe that the subconscious mind programming you receive in childhood, especially in early childhood before the age of three, pretty much determines who you are going to be as an individual for the rest of your life. 

We now know that the brain is much more flexible than that. Among many other things, neuroplasticity allows you to change how you feel about yourself and how much you believe in yourself. Because much of these beliefs are anchored in the subconscious, and hypnosis works with the subconscious mind directly, hypnosis is an ideal tool for making these changes in your mind.

The work you can to with self hypnosis for confidence is to feed your mind loving and positive messages, of the kind you perhaps missed out on in the early years- or that were taken away by an event in adult life. With self hypnosis for confidence you can rebuild your self confidence.


2. Self Hypnosis for Confidence is a Tool Ideally Suited to Building Confidence

In relation to confidence, I often hear coaches and psychotherapists arguing that you develop it by mastering tasks, that your confidence grows over time as you overcome challenges.

This concept is fair enough for those people who are ready to get stuck into projects and challenges. But what if  a lack of confidence means that you won't even attempt it or make a start? Or, what if you do make a start, and then-once the first challenges present themselves, you start feeling so uncomfortable in your lack of self belief that you end up putting the brakes on and opting out.

If that is your situation then you would be well advised to do some work on altering your feelings and beliefs first, so that you can then master tasks successfully. This is where confidence hypnosis and self hypnosis for confidence are ideally suited to help you make those changes in your life- helping you dismantle faulty and outdated programming and replacing it with a sound, confident,  belief in your abilities.

In my article on confidence hypnosis, find out why hypnosis is better suited than psychotherapy, counselling or coaching for this work.


3. Self Hypnosis for Confidence Can Help You Improve Your Quality of Life

Let me ask you a question. 

If you had rock solid self confidence- meaning you were convinced you could tackle anything and see it through to its successful conclusion- how do you think that would that change your quality of life?

  • How would that feel?
  • What would you do that you are not doing now?
  • What would you have in your life that you don't have now?

With that vision in mind, notice how it feels internally when you read the next sentence: 


"As your confidence improves, your whole life can change."


I am writing this sentence from both professional and personal experience: 

  • Over the years, I have seen many clients turn their lives around. See an example here in my client Julia who attended me for hypnosis for confidence.
  • On a personal level, I used to belong to the second category of people, those who have enough confidence to get started with a project, but give up due to lack of confidence as challenges start to present themselves. Having tried out many different form of personal work including some work with altered states, in the end it was hypnotherapy was the only tool that could truly affect change on a deep level for me, resulting in my life changing alongside. 


4. Self Hypnosis is Easy to Learn and Do

While there are many different self hypnosis techniques, you can affect massive change with just a couple of powerful tools. One tool I recommend for ease of use is a voice recorded hypnosis session. These sessions can fit into your life at the end of the day when you are retiring before going to sleep, and- if you have time- in the morning before you get up.

You can combine this with well designed auto suggestions throughout the day, much of which can be done while you are multi tasking- commuting to or from work, or while you are engaged in menial work such as washing the dishes.

In that sense, self help hypnosis can fit into your life very easily, even if you are very busy. Practice regularly and make the routine a habit and you will see meaningful change.

5. Self Hypnosis for Confidence Helps You Save Money on Personal Work

Self hypnosis, if you practice it as described above, comes at the fraction of the price of a hypnosis session with a professional hypnotherapist. You invest once and then you can play the session at home as many times as you like- until your issue is resolved and you move on to working on changing another issue in your life. 

Here comes the one limitation of self hypnosis.  As I described above, self hypnosis for confidence will nurture your mind installing positive feelings and beliefs about yourself. For many people, this nurturing alone is enough to turn their lives around. 

Sometimes, suggestion hypnosis alone is not enough. This was the case for my client Julia who came to see me for hypnosis for confidence. At this link you can find out how you can recognize when regression hypnosis with a professional hypnotherapist may be advisable. 

Find out in my article on life regression hypnosis how to find the best practitioner for you if you decide to go that route.

Overall however, financially, self hypnosis really is a no-brainer. It allows you, for minimum investment, to get started doing your personal work. You can then see how far you will get with it- and you can always top up with regression hypnosis if required.


6. With Self Hypnosis for Confidence You Can Be In Full Control

Some people just don't like the idea of attending a hypnotherapist- (although I would argue that much of that is likely informed by hypnosis myths). Be that as it may, if you are one of those people who prefer to feel in charge- with self hypnosis for confidence, you can be your own hypnotherapist. 

In the end, for hypnosis of any kind- self hypnosis or hypnosis with a practitioner to work for you, you need to create the right conditions for you to be able to relax and let go. And if working on your own is what works for you, so be it- simply give yourself what is right for you.


7. You Can Practice Self Hypnosis for Confidence at Home

Last but not least the fact that you can practice self hypnosis in the comfort of your own home makes life a lot easier for some people- for example for those with mobility issues, or those who live far from a city or town.

With self hypnosis, you never have to attend appointments, so the time commitment and transport cost both fall away- which can be of huge benefit when your life is super busy.
