Social anxiety is one of the most widespread problems. It affects 18% of the population in the US. Surveys shows that about 7% of the population in Europe suffers from social anxiety in their lifetime. In Australia, this number increases to 9% of the population. Hypnosis can help you get rid of social anxiety.
People with social anxiety disorder experience emotional unease in very ordinary situations. They are uncomfortable in most encounters, especially with strangers. They fear being watched, judged, teased or criticized. Their hands might get clammy and their bodies get tense. Other physiological reactions may include fear, a fast heartbeat, blushing, excessive sweating, trembling, and muscles twitching.
Instead of focusing on the content of their message, they tend to focus on the reaction of the opposite party. Their minds become cluttered with negative interpretations of facial expressions and behaviours.
Too often, people experiencing social anxiety would tend to light up a cigarette. Smoking or vaping becomes an escape. They can only momentarily mute these anxious feelings and hide behind a smokescreen.
Social anxiety can manifest at all ages. For example, post-divorce anxiety can appear even after a person has built a family. And a college student might feel the same symptoms even if they are starting in life.
What a difference it would make if you could get rid of these symptoms and socialize freely! What would you do with that extra energy if you were just free of those negative thoughts and fears? It is extremely difficult to deliver a confident elevator pitch or engage with colleagues and potential new friends.
Social anxiety does not only prevent you from broadcasting your personal brand in the workplace, it puts others in charge of developing that brand for you. Who would you rather have control that strategic asset? You or potential rival? You or a higher-up who has to choose among many candidates?
The stress of social anxiety might have led you to limit social contacts as much as practicable. That is a recipe for disaster in a competitive world. It can even lead to depression and low self-esteem. And when anxiety is accompanied with smoking, it can damage your lungs. Moreover, you do not get to develop useful social skills.
But you now have a handy tool in your well-being toolkit: hypnotherapy for stress and anxiety. Close your eyes and let yourself be guided by your hypnotherapist’s voice. Then, as you accept suggestions related to calmness, resilience and self-love, you are more likely to feel more at peace and comfortable with others and yourself.
Relieving social anxiety and gaining more confidence are the first steps toward emotional freedom. Hypnosis can help with social anxiety. But it has many more valuable applications. This therapeutic method is used in European hospitals to reduce anxiety before surgery. In addition, hypnotherapy can also help you get rid of bad habits such as smoking.
