There seem to be few matters, if any, that have not been negatively affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Only two weeks to flatten the curve to well on two years with no end in sight to the madness that has taken hold around the world, including here in Australia and the epicentre of attention in late 2021, Melbourne.
It may seem like any hope of optimism has dwindled, whether for the uncertain future ahead or for the decline in mental, physical, and perhaps even spiritual health of entire communities. Depression, anxiety, and even despair have gripped many of us.
The good news is that dealing with low self-esteem, a loss of confidence or optimism, or what many refer to as the ‘corona blues’ can be achieved with hypnotherapy. No, hypnotherapy won’t make the pandemic go away and it won’t restore rights and freedoms, but it can on a personal level restore the spring in your step and the confidence you once had so that you can live a better, more fulfilling life.
Causes of Low Self-Esteem & Confidence
Much of what we see and hear from the media, and especially social media, affects how we feel about ourselves. There are two big takeaways that can negatively affect one’s self-esteem:
- Not feeling like you’re ‘good enough’
- Feeling that you don’t measure up
It’s really shocking how infectious vanity and self-worth are derived from social media, for example, which feeds into one’s declining self-esteem as they consistently feel that their social status isn’t as good as that of others.
Much of what we consume perpetuates the above two feelings, and at the end of the day, these feelings are most often built on an illusion which we have created.
If you’ve been spending evenings during Melbourne’s ridiculously long lockdown watching the fear and propaganda from the evening news, chances are you may think that the sky will fall anytime now. It’s all negativity (and it’s been this way long before the pandemic started, as well) and negativity sells. It’s easy just to say “turn the television off” and boom, all of your problems have gone away; in reality, escaping the depressing circumstances can be a real struggle even if you’ve reduced your intake of fear coming from the media.
The corona blues can really chip away at one’s confidence and self-esteem, making us feel vulnerable or responsible in some way for what’s going on around the world. Again, these feelings are often an illusion made of manufactured fear and feeling a reduction of self-worth or importance.
How Hypnotherapy Can Resolve Issues with Confidence and Self-Esteem
There’s no pill, no vaccine, no antibiotic that can fight against the plagues of low self-esteem and low confidence. Since much of the causes of these problems stem from our perception of the world and ourselves, tapping into what triggers these feelings may be effective and get you back on your feet again.
Hypnotherapy attempts to do just that – to resolve these problems by tapping into the root triggers of these feelings to motivate and stimulate responses that improve our feeling of self-esteem and confidence. Not fake confidence, either. No overly peppy sales pitches nor motivational speeches devoid of substance but rather real confidence that give inner peace and tranquillity no matter how rough the storm gets.
