We are all born with a biological need for acceptance, love and belonging - its like our life blood - its what gives us purpose and meaning in our lives.
As a result of this primary emotional need, we all struggle with a fear of rejection: we all struggle with a sense of shame or fear that there is something about us that should other people know or see, it’ll mean we’re not worthy of acceptance, love and belonging.
We all share a fear of rejection.
However a person with high self confidence and self esteem realises that rejection is simply part of life - in order to grow, we all have to take risks and step outside of our comfort zone and when we do, at some point or other we are going to be rejected.
These people don’t seem to take rejection personally - indeed, they often see it as a learning opportunity or even a flaw in another person's character!
But for some, where confidence and self esteem are in short supply, we can find that a fear of rejection keeps us hostage to feelings of anxiety, insecurity, depression and shame.
On a cognitive level, we may be afraid that rejection confirms our worst fear — that perhaps we’re unlovable, or that we’re destined to be alone, or even that we have little worth or value in this world.
And at an emotional level, relatively minor events that happen in our adult world can swiftly become very serious indeed as we are reminded of painful feelings we experienced as a child.
Ultimately, a fear of rejection is a very powerful force indeed and is often behind issues such as acute anxiety, clinical depression, jealousy, addiction, obesity, co-dependancy and anger.
But with our help, you too can learn to become more confident in your ability to cope with rejection and to feel free to live your life in a more courageous and meaningful way.
The reason why cognitive behavioural therapy, hypnotherapy and NLP are such valuable tools in helping clients to overcome a fear of rejection lies in that fact that this fear is usually tied into childhood learning and anything we learn as a child, we can unlearn!
Through Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), we work with a clients unconscious mind, or more specifically their belief system, memory and imagination.
Through the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy we also work at a rational and logical level and the combination of the two can be very powerful indeed.
Add a little wisdom and that most scarce of resources within the therapeutic environment - common sense - and we can help you ensure that all that old unwanted fear that has had so much control over you, comfortably becomes a thing of the past.
For most clients we would look to see them between two and four times - appointments last up to 2 hours with costs ranging from £185 - £300 per session depending on the therapist they are working with.
