After adapting to life under lock-down the prospect of interacting with friends and even family again may seem overwhelming, especially if you have experienced anxious feelings when meeting with others in the past. If the world outside seems challenging and you feel daunted about leaving your safe place where you have been in control during virtual socialising, help with managing social anxiety with hypnotherapy after lock-down is available at the Conway Practice in Brighton.*
Feeling nervous when talking on a personal or professional level can relate to various phobias, including a fear of public speaking and claustrophobia where you find yourself outside of your comfort zone. During hypnosis sessions with Jonathan Conway, the subconscious prompts which trigger feelings of anxiety will be identified and addressed.* An element of your fears may be the uncertainty of how you will deal with certain situations again, not only socially but also when working with colleagues, the daily commute or professional presentations. Stress is detrimental to both mental and physical health and can greatly limit your enjoyment of life and have a negative affect on relationships.
Our thoughts influence behaviour and by recognising and re-framing these with the therapeutic intervention of hypnotherapy, self-worth and confidence can replace old beliefs of inadequacy and a fear of failure.* Social anxiety often stems from being afraid of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time and that others will judge you. This may be due to previous experiences as far back as early childhood when facing criticism in the home or from teachers in the classroom, where you became afraid to speak up. Hypnosis in Brighton can help you to adjust these beliefs and to change them by introducing new coping mechanisms and relaxation techniques.*
You don’t need to face your fears alone and if you would prefer remote sessions with hypnotherapy or NLP coaching rather than face-to-face, these can be carried out remotely one-to-one with Jonathan by Zoom, Skype or telephone.*
