If you are someone who has experienced social anxiety in your daily life, or have recently become overly anxious at the thought of returning to socialising after a long period of limited face-to-face contact with others, help managing lock-down anxiety with hypnotherapy is available at The Conway Practice in Brighton.* For those who would prefer to participate in therapy sessions with Jonathan Conway from the comfort of their home environment, appointments can be arranged remotely by Zoom, Skype or telephone.
A social phobia can occur suddenly or develop over time and the origin of the anxiety may have started during childhood or adolescence. During therapeutic intervention with hypnosis, Jonathan will explore the negative association with socialising, helping you to recognise the subconscious triggers and self-beliefs which are stored in your subconscious mind.* You may be overwhelmed at the thought of returning to a normal routine and feel anxious about facing an outside environment. A fear of the unknown can often trigger anxiety when you find yourself focusing on the ‘what ifs’, which may never happen.
A fear of public speaking (glossophobia) is a form of social phobia which isn’t limited to socialising. This can frequently be triggered in situations where you are afraid of being judged or of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. You may have stored memories of incidents in the past when you have spoken in front of others, perhaps as a child in the classroom or professionally during a business meeting, where you felt exposed and embarrassed. This may then result in the negative assumption that the same response will always occur in similar situations, provoking anxious feelings simply at the thought of being the focus of attention.
Hypnotherapy can assist in re-framing self-limiting behaviour, by first identifying the non-conscious stressors responsible for the ‘flight or fight’ response and then introducing new coping strategies and calming methods.* Hypnosis in Brighton provides therapeutic support to prepare you for life outside of your isolation bubble with confident, relaxed and enjoyable face-to-face interaction.*
