The other side of this is coming out to well informed, educated, nonjudgmental, supportive family and friends. Many people find it a positive, uplifting, weight off their shoulder’s moment. This would be wonderful if it happens and there is a chance it will, especially considering it is the 21st century now.

Hypnotherapy can offer you and your subconscious mind a positive future projection of yourself. The more often you see yourself this way (happy with who you are and what you are capable of) the more of a belief it will become for you. An example of this is the positive affirmation “Every day I’m getting better and better in every way!”. Close your eyes and say it to yourself 10 times really believing it as you do so. You will be surprised what your self-esteem feels like afterwards.
