I have successfully helped a variety of clients with these types of psychological and emotional problems at my practice just outside of Battle, East Sussex.
It is quite normal for people to feel a little lacking in confidence in a new social or work situation, or when facing a challenge. However, if we have confidence problems generally, we will feel more than a little lacking confidence in such situations. We will also usually have uncomfortable thoughts and feelings about ourselves and our abilities even in ordinary, everyday situations.
Confidence problems can hold us back in life and can prevent us from trying many things which could enhance our life – trying out new hobbies, going for promotion at work or asking for a well-deserved pay rise, going out on a date etc. Very often these problems are linked to a fear of failure, or of making mistakes, or of being judged, criticised or rejected.
Confidence problems are often linked to low self-esteem and/ or a poor self-image.
On the face of it, confidence problems, low self-esteem, and poor self-image may sound like the same thing but, although they often ‘overlap’, there are differences between them:
Confidence problems is when we have little belief in our abilities and feel like we will not succeed, so we may not even try;
Low self-esteem is when we feel pretty worthless generally as an individual;
Poor self-image is when we believe that we are unattractive or ugly. Or we believe that we do not deserve to look attractive, so we may make efforts not to, perhaps leaving hair unwashed or un-cared for, or not washing much generally, or keeping ourselves too thin or fat etc
There are many ‘tools’ and approaches available to help us to manage these problems, including self-help CDs, NLP, CBT, EFT, suggestion therapy, and counselling to name a few. Some of these may be of some help, although often they may be only temporarily effective.
Ideally, if we want to sort out our confidence problems and lack of self-belief for good, we will need to look at resolving the causes. The causes are usually underlying, unresolved feelings from negative past experiences. These are mostly from early life and often long-forgotten by the time we develop confidence problems.
Often the causes are stored subconsciously (i.e. outside of conscious awareness) which makes it more difficult in many ways for us. However, it is possible to resolve even subconscious causes using appropriate therapy.
I offer different approaches for this (and every problem) and the choice of which one (or more) to take depends on the individual and their circumstances. The decision is usually made during the initial consultation.
