Being confident is having a belief in your own ability to achieve something. Being confident also can let you have the ability to try things that are new, because confident people believe that making a mistake is OK. Having low confidence can affect how you perform in situations or limit your exposure to trying new things.
Is low confidence always a bad thing? No! Low confidence can drive you to work harder in preparation for an exam; it can make you take caution before doing something. Over confidence can lead to undue risks or lack of preparation for a competition or challenge.
Self-awareness of your confidence levels and how it impacts your behaviour and performance is where we can help. Recognising the signs of where your own levels of confidence are at, and then adjusting your behaviour and thought processes accordingly is a pretty powerful combination. We can help you to achieve this!
But what if you’re not confident? Don’t stress about it! Confidence can develop at different rates within different people. There are people who were confident children but then have a significant event that knocks their confidence in all areas. There are people that only develop confidence well into their 20’s and 30’s when they gain a different perspective on life.
Whatever your situation, our therapy tools and techniques can help you to manage your confidence levels in different situations, reduce the negative impacts and increase the positive outcomes.
