Overcoming Social Worry
As human beings, we truly feel the need to be accepted by others, and this is why social phobia is quite common.
This can impact anyone at any time, and results in problems with everyday situations, from shopping to talking to people on the telephone.
Social anxiety can lead to countless problems within intimate relationships, work and a person’s general quality of life.
Social anxiety manifests itself in numerous ways including talking while in front of people, reading aloud or writing whilst being watched, queuing in banks and any occasion where they are the focus of attention.
A fear of criticism is typically quite notable in this disorder so sufferers often avoid circumstances where they might be criticised.
A person with social anxiety can sometimes have low self-worth and feel insecure, which may create problems within relationships.
Left unattended, the levels of anxiety and fear may generalise and heighten until the person begins to undergo panic and anxiety attacks.
Further repercussions of the disorder are feelings of depression and an incapacity to relax which can cause misuse of alcohol and drugs in order to escape their present reality.
At this point, they are likely to go through a breakdown in relationships or friendships and difficulties maintaining a career or socialising with others, but also participating in general day to day tasks like shopping or even posting a letter.
Plainly, it is a very devastating disorder if left to expand without check; the great news is that hypnotheraputic strategies are very effective at healing social anxiety at all stages of the condition.
The fear and worry in social anxiety is as a rule fueled by past ordeals of humiliation, or certain habitual thinking patterns. These underlying components are readily treatable with hypnotherapy specialist techniques.
A hypnotic approach will aim to help someone overcome these emotions and anxieties.
Hypnosis works by helping people to change their beliefs and feelings about past events along with boosting levels of self confidence and control.
Hypnotherapy helps the person to remove the associated problems and return to a normal life devoid of social anxiety.
The individual is likely to begin to see significant changes in numerous areas of their life; for instance, by being willing to communicate with others more readily and by regaining control over their emotions and their attitude towards life.
Intimate relationships, social occasions, and general day to day living would no longer pose a problem in their lives, and they are likely to really feel a sense of confidence and increased self-esteem.
