Social anxiety can be experienced in many different situations, including friendly get-togethers, presenting at business meetings, giving a speech, initiating conversations or anywhere that you may feel under scrutiny. There is generally an overwhelming fear of saying the wrong thing and be considered incompetent or boring. Excessive self-consciousness frequently results in the avoidance of any interaction which will take you out of your comfort zone. This however can cause social isolation not only on a personal level with friends and family, but also in your professional life. Hypnotherapy explores the negative thought processes which are behind any feelings of low self-esteem and lack of confidence.*
A social phobia goes beyond a natural shyness and may be linked to a particular incident in the past which you are convinced will re-occur in a similar situation. During sessions in hypnosis, calming methods can be applied by introducing breathing techniques which will reduce the physical symptoms and discomfort.* Jonathan will also help you to challenge any negative assumptions which have been stored in your subconscious and have no relevance to your true self-worth and potential.*
Hypnotherapy in Brighton & Hove can help with a social phobia by enabling you to release self-defeating and limiting beliefs.* Your current experiences and behaviour in social situations can be re-addressed, replacing any negativity with positive affirmations, providing the prospect of opening a pathway to increased opportunities and personal achievement.*
