"Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted."
Martin Luther King Jr
The dictionary definition of self-confidence is 'having belief in yourself and trusting in your abilities'. Therefore, self confidence is about the nature of our relationship with our self, how we feel about our self and how able we feel to do the things we would like to do.
Our level of self-confidence can have a significant impact on the quality of our life and the outcomes of the various challenges we face, such as: making friends, dealing with relationship issues, taking initiatives at work, talking to others, developing a skill like driving a car, etc.
It seems that self-confidence varies in each person depending on the situation. For example, you might feel very confident in the safety of your home but struggle in other places.
The good news is that contemporary research suggests self-confidence is not something you 'just have' but something you can build. People are not born with a high level of self-confidence, we tend to build it as we develop.
Counselling can help you gain more confidence to:
1. Overcome the obstacles in your life
2. Gain motivation to push yourself further toward your goals.
3. Help you become more appropriately assertive in different situations.
4. Accept your limitations.
5. Develop a deeper sense of self-worth.
6. Have a richer life and more authentic relationships.
You should consider seeking counselling or cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) when your low self-confidence problem is interfering with your normal functioning, relationships and daily activities and you would like help from an experienced and qualified therapist to build your confidence.
