    Challenges to Self-Esteem

    There are too many situations or experiences that could be a determining factor in self-esteem issues. Low self-esteem can result from violence or neglect, disapproving authority figures, perception of failing to meet standards or expectations, bullying, prejudices from social groups, trauma, and not feeling as though one fits with the rest of society.

    Low self-esteem can negatively impact the various areas of a person’s life. Not only will someone with low self-esteem beat themselves up for every perceived or actual mistake they make, but they may allow others to do the same to them.

    Low self-esteem can affect our relationships with others. It can distort our perceptions of our family, partner and friends, leading to unhealthy and dysfunctional relationships. You may feel that you are constantly losing people in your life. Low self-esteem can fuel arguments and jealousy or can make a person feel rejected all the time.

    People with low self-esteem do not take any chances on new projects in case of an undesirable outcome. Opportunities go to waste, which could lead to a person feeling stuck all the time.

    Through my practice, I often work with clients with self-esteem issues. To an extent or nature, most people experience low self-esteem at some stage in their lives. It is not a reflection of someone’s lack of resilience or strength to confront challenges. It is a negative view of themselves that accumulates over a lifetime. Every experience builds a layer upon layer that can strengthen our negative experiences and perspective of ourselves and the world. This means if our experiences continue to tell us that we are not good enough or we surround ourselves with bullies, there is a possibility that we will develop low self-esteem.

    Unhelpful statements include “you’ll be fine, it’s just a stage you’re going through” or “just be positive, life isn’t that bad”, or “others have it worse off than you”.

    It is statements like these that frustrate me. It ignores the person’s real experiences that have led them to develop low self-esteem in the first place. People can not simply be positive overnight or pretend things. People can pretend things are OK, but this is not sustainable. There are clearly issues that need to be addressed on a deeper level. Even constant reassurance that life will be OK is not generally enough to override a long-term history of low self-esteem.

    While it is difficult to control what happens externally, we can control how we perceive the negative information and learn how to cope and respond better than we have in the past.

    What is helpful?

    PSYCH-K can help with gaining a stronger sense of self. People can learn all kinds of skills with PSYCH-K, such as being more assertive and confident. PSYCH-K can contribute to establishing self-belief, value and awareness. It can also assist by addressing the emotions that emerge from low self-esteem. By not internalising every piece of unhelpful information, you can learn to brush off negativity easier.

    Believe you deserve more out of life and stop devaluing yourself. Instead of hoping low self-esteem will go away by itself, you need to acknowledge that it is a problem and then take the first step to seek support.

    Stop being afraid of change. Sometimes people find comfort in staying how they are, even with low self-esteem. Fortunately, you can change your life. Once you are over the hump, it only gets easier. Putting in the effort at the beginning of any new process will have beneficial lifelong outcomes.

    Stop worrying and caring what others think of you and start living your own life. 

    Stop struggling. Start living. Experience change.

      Changing my life one step at a time

      I highly recommend Paul at Norwest Wellbeing. We did an initial consult over the phone so he could assess whether the program would be a good fit for my issue. After one full session I could already feel a shift in my subconscious and the way I was viewing things. Changing my life one step at a time. Definitely give Paul a call.

      Changed my eating habits in 2 sessions

      I went to Paul to see if anything can be done from my eating habits. This man changed my eating habits in 2 sessions. Now I don't munch chocolate and ice cream as much. Give this a go with an open mind. Got nothing to lose besides your habit you want to kick.

      Pregnancy Hypnosis

      I had my appointment with my Obstetrician on Tuesday. While I still had a bit of anxiety, I was able to use the tactics to calm myself down. It really helped. My blood pressure had an improvement and partner said I looked so much calmer. I’m listening to the recording before I go to bed. I’m really positive that I will only get better, and I will have resources to help me while I’m in hospital having my baby. Thank you so much.

      Hypnosis for Anxiety

      After speaking to Paul on the phone I was ready to meet for some hypnosis sessions. I really wasn’t sure if this type of program would help me as I have tried many other things over the years that felt like a waste of time. Paul is very intuitive and speaks with confidence about how the mind works. What we discussed and his insights made a lot of sense and so far after a few sessions I can definitely tell there is progress. Thanks so much.

      Feel Better

      If you want to feel better it’s as simple as this, book an appointment and see Paul after just one session he fixed a problem that has resurfaced a number of times through out my life. I’m so glad I found him.

      Important investment in my future health

      My experience with Paul was exactly what I had hoped for. It was about getting my mind right to deal with my issues. Paul did that from the first session and then reinforced that in subsequent sessions. I have made great progress and although I still have a way to go, I am encouraged and motivated by the fact that I am already, within a few months, halfway to my objective. The hard part is done, taking the first steps, & I'm confident that the work Paul has done sets me up for continued success. I regard this as an important investment in my future health
