Natural Confidence Hypnosis
You can learn how to be confident
Show Natural Confidence in social situations
This Natural Confidence script reframes the client's perception. It changes the perception from fear of being judged and criticized, to having a task to perform in every social interaction. The task is to put other people at their ease, to make small talk and get them talking. By giving the client a task to do the client's focus changes from internal focus to external focus.
You don't have time to worry about what the other person will think, because you are busy assessing what aspects of the other person to comment on. Because you are forced to actually look at the other person, the act of looking is a trigger for a post hypnotic suggestion to kick in. The post hypnotic suggestion specifies what you will actually see are signals that confirm the other person's warm felings towards you.
Natural Confidence replaces old personal beliefs
The script also addresses your core belief issues. These are usually about feelings of inadequacy, a feeling of never being good enough. These are replaced indirectly by overhearing remarks that the you has actually arrived at where they are supposed to be. The message is that you can stop striving because you now have reached the right level of performance for you.
Then you are given an action metaphor for leaving behind all the things that were holding you back. Each of these metaphors can be used on their own for other types of problem. The final sections relate to common situations where confidence is needed: only one is given here.
The therapist can use none, one or several of these depending on the client, and other scenarios can be added to address specific problems.
