So….. do you actually have a social anxiety problem? Well here’s a list of some of the most common experiences that people who suffer from social phobia problems.

  • Fear that others will spot that you’re nervous

Social Anxiety – Two Types

There are two types of anxiety that people with this problem experience

  • Anticipatory Anxiety – in other words, the situation that you fear hasn’t happened yet but you spend days or weeks worrying intensely about it.
  • Situational Anxiety – where you experience the anxiety in the actual situation itself.

Social phobia can be extremely limiting to your social life, restricting who you go out with and where you go, and it can hold you back from achieving your full potential in work situations, possibly costing you a promotion or preventing you from interviewing for a job that you would really like.

Effective Solution With Hypnotherapy

Social anxiety is characterised by errors in thinking – judging situations or people as potentially threatening or a potential source of embarrassment. These errors in thinking are in the subconscious mind — in other words, you don’t even have to think about them – they’re just automatic.

Hypnotherapy offers a solution to anxiety. Through the relaxed state of hypnosis, we can access your subconscious mind and gently and easily change those thinking errors. Using age regression, we’ll go back and revisit some of those situations that originally set up your anxiety in social situations.

I offer a FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION where you come along and meet with me for one hour and we discuss the problem in great detail – where it began, what you experience, what triggers you, etc. I’ll also fully explain how hypnotherapy can successfully help you and what you can expect throughout the process.
