Self-esteem can be thought of as how highly a person values themselves. Many people misunderstand the term. It doesn't refer to someone who criticises or looks down on others or who gloats about their own achievements. In fact, these people are probably suffering from low self-esteem themselves and could do with building and developing more self belief.
Overcoming low self-esteem is not always easy and by being critical of and belittling others, it is easy to forget about your relationship with yourself which may well need attention.
You might like to try this free self esteem and confidence course - it promotes a CD pack which is excellent too, but you don't have to buy it for the course to work.
Lots of things can affect the way a person sees and values themselves including stress at work or home, relationship problems, criticism and confrontation etc. Children often have low self-esteem if they have been bullied or have problems studying or concentrating at school. Building self confidence in children is important as our history of self esteem starts in childhood. In some cases, women can also develop self esteem issues after having children.
Having good feelings towards yourself and liking yourself can improve the way you communicate with others and this will become like a self-fulfilling prophesy. Hypnosis can help with building a healthy self-esteem and can be particularly empowering. Hypnotherapy will help you to internalise that change and make it more real and believable.
On this site you will find various resources to help with self-esteem and confidence. These include the "Little online book range" to which a self-confidence and esteem ebook will shortly be added. We also recommend our free and comprehensive guide to self-hypnosis. This is an effective tool used by many successful people.
