Social phobia, also known as social anxiety disorder, is a complex condition characterised by an intense and persistent fear of interaction with others. This isn’t purely related to socialising and can also inhibit communication and progression within your professional life. Relief from social anxiety with hypnotherapy in Brighton at The Conway Practice can be achieved by examining a combination of factors.*
Therapeutic intervention with hypnosis explores the underlying issues responsible for an exaggerated ‘flight or fight’ response to stress, resulting in both physical and emotional discomfort.* This safe, holistic approach considers the origin of your anxiety and the subconscious triggers initiating an acute stress reaction.*
Psychological factors frequently play a crucial role in the development of a social phobia. Traumatic experiences in the past, such as bullying or public embarrassment, can leave lasting emotional scars, leading to a heightened fear of interacting whenever you feel a perceived threat to your well-being. Negative self-perception and distorted thinking patterns or beliefs can further exacerbate social anxiety, as you may consider yourself to be constantly judged or rejected by others.
Early influences, such as upbringing and cultural factors, can contribute to the development of social anxiety. For example, if you grew up in an overly critical or conversely, an overprotective family environment, you may be more prone to a low level of self-confidence and a distorted belief in your true abilities and value.
During solution-focused hypnotherapy sessions with Jonathan Conway, new coping mechanisms, positive affirmations and stress-reducing relaxation techniques can be introduced.* This anti-anxiety lifestyle has the potential to open up new opportunities for personal growth, enabling you enjoy good conservations and social engagements.*
