Confidence and Social Phobia

Hypnotherapy for Confidence

Imagine how different your life would be if you had the confidence to go for that job, ask out that person or just feel really good about yourself for once… Well, you can achieve it and hypnotherapy could help.

Problems with your confidence or self-esteem often occur because of the negative beliefs you have about yourself, which can result in social phobia. Social phobia can affect many people and in many ways… but is generally an overwhelming fear of any social situations. This may stem back to childhood insecurities that were never addressed that left you thinking ‘I’m just not good enough' or 'I simply can't do it'. Self doubt and insecurity can be destructive, but you haven't always been that way. If that were true, you wouldn’t have learned to walk, talk or learn to discover new things.

How could hypnotherapy help with confidence issues? By balancing out your negative thought patterns, limiting beliefs and helping you to rid yourself of nagging self doubt. I aim to assist you in developing a more positive sense of self and increased determination.

Confidence can be built up and boosted but it can just as easily be crushed too. Your confidence affects how you do things and how people perceive and interact with you. It can help you to get the very best out of a situation.... but a lack of it can make you shy away from your goals and dreams. Low self-esteem can prove very restrictive in your daily life; sometimes even the idea of a business meeting, an outing with your friends or simply leaving the house seems too much to stand.

Self confidence comes from within you, you need to learn to understand and accept your own worth. Don't think you have lost confidence but rather that you have covered it up ... and now you want to uncover it again! You are obviously motivated to find help and to break free from these destructive patterns that have been created. So perhaps hypnotherapy in Essex could help you to resolve your confidence problems.

Social Anxiety (Fear of social situations or social phobia)

Another common area people have a problem with is “social phobia”, this can include a fear of:

Speaking in public (giving talks, wedding speeches etc)
Speaking on the telephone
Meeting new people or visiting unknown places
Going into crowded public places (pubs, clubs, restaurants etc)
Eating or drinking in a public place
Being looked at (this could be walking down the street, in the supermarket or anywhere)
Using public toilets (Paruresis or bashful bladder syndrome)
Undressing in public (for example in changing rooms)

If you suffer from social anxiety, you may fear what others think of you or feel that people are watching what you are doing, judging you. You may often find yourself employing avoidance tactics to get out of the situation you are uncomfortable with. However, evading the issue will often only tend to make it worse and it certainly won’t make the underlying issue go away.

So why not deal with it? If you are motivated to take back control of your life then hypnotherapy could help you to deal with your social anxiety.
