What is Self-Esteem?

According to Nathaniel Branden, Ph.D., a noted author and expert on the subject, "Self-esteem is the experience of being competent enough to cope with the basic challenges of life and being worthy of happiness".


Self-esteem is defined as a person's overall evaluation or appraisal of his or her own worth.  It encompasses a subjective belief system, such as "I am enough" or "I am deserving" and emotions such as triumph, despair, pride and shame.  This positive or negative evaluation of the self is how we feel or see ourselves and is often developed through environmental influences as well as messages from family, friends, teachers and other figures of authority.  Positive self-esteem can affect every aspect of your life from overall mood to success and goal setting.  On the other hand, negative self perception can be one of the most influential factors in proliferating addictions, bad habits, dysfunctional relationships, continued failures and other life altering stimuli.  

Hypnosis can help you to identify the negative thought patterns that have shaped how you see yourself and will help you to change your internal messaging in order to enhance your positive self-image.

Realize who are you are without the burdens that you carry from the past. Live the life that you want and feel worthy of all the best life has to offer.
