Being Well in Suffolk

Confidence

Not what you're looking for? Here is a list of everything we can help with.

Being confident enough to do the things we want or need to do can be hard. There are many things that can help, including understanding more of what is behind a lack of confidence.

Self-confidence is important in almost every aspect of our lives, yet so many people struggle to find it, and those who lack self-confidence can then find it hard to become successful. Most of us are reluctant to back a project pitched by someone who is nervous, fumbling, and overly apologetic. We are more likely to be persuaded by someone who speaks clearly, holds their head high, answers questions assuredly, and readily admits when they do not know something.

Confident people inspire confidence in others: their audience, their peers, their bosses, their customers, and their friends. And gaining the confidence of others is one of the key ways in which a self-confident person finds success.

The good news is that self-confidence can definitely be learned and built on. Working on your own confidence or building the confidence of people around you is well worth the effort.

We offer the following services that can help with confidence

Person-centred therapy

Person-centered therapy uses a non-authoritative approach that allows clients to take more of a lead in discussions so that, in the process, they will discover their own solutions. The therapist acts as a compassionate facilitator, listening without judgment and acknowledging the client’s experience without moving the conversation in another direction. The therapist is there to encourage and support the client and to guide the therapeutic process without interrupting or interfering with the client’s process of self-discovery.
