Confidence and Self Esteem – Hypnotherapy Sessions Wakefield

Are there things in life that you would really like to try or do but your mind tells you “no, I can’t possibly do that, I don’t have the confidence”.

The feelings of lack of confidence and low self-esteem are learned behaviours, you are not born with them. It could be something from your time at school, a teacher embarrassing you in front of your class mates or a boss angry with you at work for making a mistake. These feelings develop over time, reinforced by circumstances, events and sometimes other people.

If you suffer from low self-esteem or lack confidence  you may put yourself down and criticise yourself for anything you do, you may find you become stuck in negative ways of thinking and as a result this may prevent you taking or making a future opportunity by  keeping you in your comfort zone.

You may have trouble seeing things that you have done well, and may have a tendency to dwell on the things that have gone wrong, rather than looking at the situation in a more balanced perspective.

Client Testimonials

I had received hypnotherapy a number of years previously for treating agoraphobia and I found it very effective and changed my life. The problem of anxiety arose after my mum and dad passed away 3 years ago, and I felt sure it would help me again.
I was right. In contacting Lynne I found it really helpful. I felt more confident and less worried about the future. I found Lynne to be very professional but friendly and very approachable which I personally feel is why my treatment was successful.
It wasn’t just the hypnotherapy, it was working together with Lynne and putting things in place that I could use at home if I suffered a “blip”.
I would recommend anyone to be treated with hypnotherapy in this way as it is very successful, and has worked for me.


I sought the help of Lynne because I was struggling with alcohol. I am not addicted to alcohol but when I had to socialise I drank excessively to give me confidence. It did not matter if I knew them well or not at all. I would always drink before I went out would get really drunk become argumentative say and do things I would never do sober or a little tipsy. Lynn helped me through hypnosis what in my past could be one of the reasons I do this and gave me coping techniques. It has been approx. 10 months since I last had hypnotherapy and with the exception of a couple of lapses I have really controlled my alcohol intake at social events and people have commented I have done well and they are proud of me.


The results were almost instant, as you put my life in perspective. I could see things for what they were and the self-help i.e. breathing and techniques really worked for me.
I’ve not looked back.
I’ve not had an episode at all, I’ve cut down on my drinking. Losing weight slowly and feel generally more motivated. I’ve started to wean myself off the panic attack meds under guidance from docs, and I’m doing great.
I wouldn't think twice about returning to see you if I felt I needed it as you were very easy to talk to and put me at ease straight away. My life at the moment is great, and this is all because you taught me about my life and put it in order.
Can’t thank you enough
