Our self-esteem is a very important part of us. Our parents and our teachers would tell us that we should have good self-esteem or a good appreciation of oneself. Why is that? It’s because our self-esteem will be instrumental, along with other factors, in our personality and individual endeavors later on in life.
Esteem is also important when it comes to building self-confidence. After all, how can you be confident if you yourself don’t see the good and the great in you? You may have a hidden talent and you don’t know it because you think that you’re not as good as the others around you. That’s not good! How can others love and appreciate you if you don’t love and appreciate yourself?
A low self-esteem can also be a cause for undesirable behavior from certain individuals. Some people with low self-esteem actually build up a mask of confidence by acting like a loose cannon, or by bullying other people. In some cases as well, those with low self-esteem are constantly being bullied or ridiculed because they don’t fight back. They even subscribe to the same kind of thinking that their bullies are forcing upon them, thinking that they are correct instead of rejecting them and building a totally different image of themselves.
So, you see, having a low self-esteem is indeed problematic . If you have a child (they are prone to bullying and thus low self-esteem at such a young age) having that problem, you should take the necessary steps in getting him or her to accept his weaknesses and build up on them. How? Take the child to a hypnotherapist!
Don’t get your eyebrows up. Hypnotherapy is not the mind control mechanism that society and movies have led you to believe it is. A hypnotherapist does not control your mind, or your child’s mind in general. The patient’s mind is his own; it’s free from any form of control. What a hypnotherapist does is to provide suggestions that can help in getting the patient overcome whatever obstacles they have in their subconscious minds.
Hypnotherapy has been around for some time now. A lot of people can attest to its effectiveness in treating conditions like depression, anger and aggressiveness, addictions and, in this case low self-esteem. The secret of hypnotherapy lies in its gentle approach to counseling and its focus on achieving a calm state of mind. Mental relaxation is important to everything, and that’s where you can help yourself. When you have a calm mind, you’ll be able to assess everything and work out your personal turmoils.
When the patient enters into a trance, the hypnotherapist will coax him or her into getting into the cause of their low self-esteem and, afterwards, guide them into coming to terms with their weaknesses and strengths. Therapy will involve one or more sessions. For children, it may even be shorter since their minds are more receptive and easy to work with.
Gradually, your child will build his or her confidence and will no longer have to suffer the effects of self-esteem on their personalities.
