To lose your self confidence is to lose your very fiber of trust in yourself. Instead of a
person able to freely make sound judgment calls and possesses excellent decision making
skills, individuals that lack self confidence are constantly second guessing themselves
and often unable to make even the simplest decision without gnawing worry and concern.
If you have found yourself to be slipping into the pit of low self confidence, do not
worry, there is hope! Instead of berating yourself over poor actions that occurred in the
past, change your future. Seek out counseling that will enable you to rebuild and
maintain your self confidence at unparalleled levels.

The first step to self confidence counseling is making the commitment to seek out and
attend these helpful sessions. Whether private or in a group setting, this counseling can
be the spark that changes your life. You may enter the sessions as a self doubting,
passive individual, but you will leave full of hope and optimism with the ability to totally
trust your own actions and judgments. Before you enter counseling, consider any
potential obstacles in your current life. Perhaps your spouse, family member, friend, or
co-worker has lowered your self confidence and may be detrimental to your counseling.
Perhaps you have experienced low self confidence since childhood and need to break the
cycle imposed upon you by your parents or guardians. Maybe you are in a difficult
situation at your job, with employees, bosses, or colleagues constantly tearing away at
your self confidence. Whatever the case, you should be prepared to make the
commitment to begin a new way of life in order to rebuild your self confidence. Even the
smallest changes will help you in this process. Being in the right frame of mind before
you begin will assist you to your goal in a quicker, more positive manner.

Once you have determined to seek counseling, begin researching viable options. The
World Wide Web is a great source of information on counseling spots in your city or
town. If you feel entering counseling will be too overwhelming for you or your schedule
does not allow it, the Internet is also a great tool that enables you to virtually meet and
discuss with individuals from all over the world. There are many websites, forums, and
chat rooms devoted to individuals working to rebuild their self confidence. You can join
these sites anonymously if you are worried about others finding out your private
information, but still have the capability to begin some type of counseling. Many
individuals have a strong, confidence façade, but lack the same components on the inside.
If you find yourself in this situation and do not want the world to know you have a
problem with your self confidence, this method of virtual counseling is perfect for you.

Traditional counseling tends to be the most effective method of rebuilding your
dwindling self confidence. Universities, hospitals, churches, civic groups, and even local
organizations offer counseling of one sort of another. You may be interested in joining a
support group in order to interact with others that share your feelings of doubt and
distrust. Many individuals find themselves too shy or ashamed for one reason or another
to join a support group, or any other type of group counseling, immediately. If you find
yourself in this boat, consider private counseling first, then graduating on to group
counseling. If money is a concern, it should be known that group counseling is usually a
great deal cheaper—if not free—than private, one-on-one counseling.

What ever form of counseling you decide upon, enter into it with seriousness and
determination. If you maintain a positive attitude and strive towards achieving your
goals, your self confidence is guaranteed to drastically improve.
