You may already be preparing excuses to turn down invitations for festive celebrations and office parties due to an overwhelming fear that you will feel out of your comfort zone. This stress response can frequently be traced back to childhood or adolescence with early influences or incidents of which you have no conscious awareness. Therapeutic intervention with hypnosis while the mind is more receptive to positive suggestion, the subconscious triggers relating to a cycle of intrusive thoughts can be identified and addressed.*  Hypnotherapy is a safe and effective method to achieve a healthy mind-set by replacing negative thought patterns with positive affirmations which will improve your sense of self-worth and confidence.*

Social anxiety is often generated by a fear of coming under scrutiny and criticism, or believing you will fall short of people’s expectations. Parents often place pressure on children to succeed and although well-intended, this may have the opposite result, with the belief that you will never achieve their aspirations. A fear of public speaking is commonly a form of social anxiety, where you feel that you will be ridiculed or the words will dry up. There is also the belief that a negative experience will always be repeated when you find yourself in similar circumstances, however irrational this may be.

A social disorder not only presents as emotional stress, there are generally unpleasant physical reactions to the fight-or-fight response. This can be experienced with symptoms such as nausea, trembling and an increased heart rate, with the belief that this will be visible to your companions. Jonathan Conway will introduce new coping mechanisms and calming methods during the hypnotherapy sessions, which can easily be practised whenever you feel stressed and under pressure in certain environments.*
