British hypnotherapist Paul McKenna helps many people achieve their goals including that of self esteem/confidence and I believe that so much of what he does helps people in a very positive way. In relation to a book review, here's just a little to share:

Quote:
Paul McKenna gives simple, clearly set out exercises to assist you in this process of training your mind and your senses so that you can enter the world of a more confident, more charismatic you.

McKenna's mission it seems is to encourage you to retrain:

your mind to think in a confident way,
your body to feel the sensations of confidence and
your behaviour to encapsulate the behaviour of a confident person.
He argues that in order to do this you need to imagine what the "authentic" you is like, i.e. what you would be like if you were fully at ease with yourself, rather than preoccupied with fear or anxiety.

He advocates simple use of a well known coaching technique for helping you to reframe in a positive way negative 'inner thoughts' (or using his words, your "internal voice"), asking you to think of negative comments you might make about yourself or about your abilities or your future and then come up with a positive statement which is the opposite of the negative one. He encourages you to repeat the new positive statement to yourself in a confident voice as part of this process of retraining your mind.
