Shyness – A very large proportion of the Irish population suffers from shyness to varying different degrees. Many people who come to my clinic for help to successfully overcome shyness are people who you’d never guess have this problem. My clients include students, stay-at-home Mom’s, general operatives, managers, business owners, sports personalities and even media personalities. What I’m saying is that shyness is common to all strands of society. Shyness is all about fear of being judged by other people or being perceived as strange, odd, not good enough, etc, etc.

Shyness Symptoms

Symptoms of shyness can be broken down into two main categories – external (observable by others) and internal (what you think or feel on the inside which of course are easier to hide). Not everyone who is shy will experience all of these but perhaps you might find some of your regular symptoms here – External Symptoms

  • Facial blushing
  • Tightness of the muscles
  • Heart racing / palpitations
  • Nausea or “butterflies” feelings
  • Not speaking / trying to stay unnoticed / or speaking in a very low voice
  • Not making eye contact
  • Standing a distance away from the group
  • Hands shaking / body trembling
  • Stuttering

Internal Symptoms

  • Feeling embarrassed / self conscious
  • Mind racing / worrying (eg. “what if they think…..”)
  • Fear of being rejected or excluded
  • Fear of being judged / criticised / mocked by others
  • Negative thoughts (eg. “why did I do that?”, “I’m so stupid”, etc.)
  • Low self esteem
  • Sadness / depression

Effective Treatment With Hypnotherapy

Buried deep in your subconscious mind is a belief that underpins your shyness. I’m not sure where that began for you but for many people, they learned to believe that they should be very aware of other people judging them when they were children or teenagers. Perhaps that was as a result of what their parents told them or some embarrassing incident at school or maybe in a social situation someone made fun of them or pointed out how they were doing something wrong. Through hypnotherapy, we can go back to those events – the root cause – and gently change those limiting beliefs. We can also teach you a very powerful method of instantly becoming calm and in control. Imagine if you could trigger that off at the time that you most need it. You would naturally react differently (and much better) in future.

I offer a FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION where you come along and meet me in person for approx. one hour.

This allows me to understand the problem so I can assess how many sessions I think you’d need to achieve a successful outcome. We’ll also discuss hypnosis, what we’ll be doing in therapy, what you can expect, etc., and I will answer any questions you may have.
