How Hypnosis Can Increase Your Self Confidence

Updated: Jan 31

Self Confidence- A character trait that seems to come to some people effortlessly, while others don’t seem to be able to grasp it. What if I told you there’s a captivating connection between

hypnosis and confidence? 

Hypnosis, often shrouded in mystery and misconceptions, is a state of heightened focus, awareness and suggestibility. It allows you to bypass your conscious mind and to access the subconscious, where all of our programming lies. And it is in our programming that our ability, or inability, to be Self confident lies.

At its core, Self confidence is rooted in our beliefs and perceptions, and any insecurities or doubts are a part of this subconscious programming. This is why it can be so difficult to work on this characteristic, as we may not even be consciously aware of our negative or self sabotaging beliefs. 

This is where hypnosis comes in. 

While you’re in a hypnotic state and able to bypass your conscious mind and go straight into your subconscious, you are able to be given positive suggestions that align your desired outcome with your programming. Essentially, hypnosis allows you to rewrite the script of your subconscious beliefs. 

By accessing this realm, and with repetition, we’re able to replace self doubt with self affirmation and use empowering suggestions that make confidence come to you as easily as breathing. We are able to access and change your limiting beliefs; whether it’s overcoming imposter syndrome, addressing fears or negative self talk, hypnosis acts as a catalyst for change. 

While in hypnosis, we are able to access past experiences where you felt confident and really connect you with that feeling. We can also do visualizations where you are your most confident Self and you’ll experience it as if it’s real. (Fun fact- our subconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between fact or fiction, so doing visualization is a powerful tool in gaining the results you desire.)

It’s important to note that hypnosis isn’t a one size fits all solution. The number of sessions may vary person to person depending on how receptive your subconscious mind is. There may be deeper layers for some people than others that make their confidence harder to access. 

It’s also important to know that hypnotherapy is a ‘do with’ process, not a ‘do to’ process. It’s estimated that 88-90% of our mind power lies in the subconscious. So as the hypnotist, I’ll be working with that part, and you will have to work with the remaining 10-12% of your conscious thinking mind for the process to be successful. So in other words, you really have to want the change for it to happen. 

Imagine what your life would look like if Self confidence just came to you, easily and effortlessly. How would it be different? What would it make easier for you? How would it change your relationships? Your career?

If you’re ready to empower yourself and step fully into your confidence, book a Discovery Call at, and let’s work together to make that happen!

Love & Light,
