Confidence

Confidence is about feeling content with who you are and what you are conveying to others. A confident person will be comfortable talking to strangers, may find presentations and public speaking easier, regard their own ideas as worthwhile, and have higher aspirations than someone with low confidence.

Most people will occasionally feel a drop in confidence, possibly due to someone’s unkind words or criticism, or due to a more challenging task lying ahead of them. Regarding confidence in terms of public speaking and presentations, most people will feel nervous and feel that their confidence is waning. This is one element which may be overcome using therapy.

However, lack of confidence may be more severe than this. A lack of confidence may affect several areas of your life, from difficulties in the work place to finding the prospect of starting relationships or friendships too daunting to pursue. Low confidence levels can leave you withdrawn, finding it difficult to meet new people and start conversation with others, particularly those you are unfamiliar with. This can lead to a feeling of loneliness and isolation. Confidence may be linked to self-esteem, and strongly effect how others perceive you.
