Thanks all for your advice!http://cdnmn.com/emo/te/1.gif

There is lots of help out there.
Consider CBT and Mindfulness as well as Hypnotherapy.
One to one might suit or maybe a group might be best, I suggest try a few things and see what feels right for you.
The worst thing is just battling on and giving yourself a hard time in the process!

Not saying hypnosis wont work but "giving yourself a talking to " etc is not the way forward for low self esteem .

It's not in your control - you wouldn't choose to feel like this would you ?

And if you have bouts of uncontrollable crying ,maybe you're depressed ?

Would you consider talking to GP ,perhaps you could be referred for group or individual help to help you get some techniques so that you could start the process of feeling better ?

Do it. I had hypnosis to stop biting my nails (a lifelong problem that i just couldnt stop doing and hated) and also to deal with some depression issues that i couldnt quite 'snap out of'.

I paid £60 per session and had three sessions over 4 weeks. It is honestly the very best money i have ever spent. Changed my life instantly.

I was skeptical beforehand but wanted to give it a go, which is a big thing in that if you are open minded to trying it then it has better chance of success.

Hi! Wondered if any MN out there had ever tried hypnosis to improve low self-esteem and no self-confidence. Have tried reading books and giving myself a good "talking to" to snap out of it and repeating mantras etc but it just hits me like a ten-ton truck every so often and I can't stop crying. It is starting to interfere with my relationship and it is holding me back in what I want to do with my life. So searched for alternative cures and found hypnosis but wanted some thoughts and opinions on it?
