Build self confidence

Over the years I have met many wonderful, talented people - only they didn't see themselves that way.  Not feeling good enough or worthy, thinking themselves stupid and generally not believing in themselves.  This held them back and stopped them feeling happiness and satisfaction.  Such a huge waste of a life. 

Such a waste of energy too...constantly beating yourself up, self-sabotaging and missing out on wonderful opportunities.  You look around and everyone else seems to be so much better than you - more competent, cleverer, more in control.  Even when you succeed at something you tell yourself it is a fluke.

What is confidence?  It is about truly knowing yourself - your skills, abilities, personality traits and motivators.  We are each of us unique AND we ALL have wonderful talents.  Sometimes we know what these skills and talents are but we are scared of taking a risk - maybe it is a financial risk, giving up your day job to start your own business, maybe it is fear of failure or fear of what others may say...maybe it is feeling you don't deserve happiness or success.

To me, self confidence is about backing yourself and staying on course to what you want.  It is also about being OK to taking a risk, giving it a go and learning from it.  This is how we grow.

Believe in yourself.  You are worth it.

My mother was a great inspiration to me.  She left school with few qualifications but she went to college when I was young and got herself a job as a legal secretary and then as an accountant - not that she was a qualified accountant but she was a wiz at helping small businesses get their finances in order.

She often told me that she "found my mouth saying yes to a job that I have no idea how to do" - she always succeeded.  She was still saying yes a month before she died.  At her funeral none of her business clients had any idea she was in her 70s.

Basically if you think you can, you are much more likely to succeed - and you can't as such, fail.  Another way of thinking of it is 'fake it till you ARE it!' You might not always achieve as much as you wanted and it might not be perfect, but you tried - and you learnt.

My approach - Using a mixture of coaching, neuro-lingustic programming (NLP), hypnotherapy and personal experience I can help you to see yourself in a new way.  I can facilitate your journey to feeling more confident, to identify ways you may self sabotage and change these habits.  I can support you on your journey to becoming a confident person who knows they can achieve whatever they want to.  Dare to dream!
