How Hypnosis Can Help You Overcome Social Anxiety
Are you tired of feeling like everyone scrutinizes and judges you in everyday social scenarios? You're not alone! Social anxiety is a common condition affecting millions worldwide, approximately 7% of the US population.
Social anxiety can make you feel self-conscious, inadequate, and even depressed. When I think about social anxiety, I remember that scene in Can't Buy Me Love when Ronald Miller (played by actor Patrick Dempsey) stands outside the window of a house party, watching everyone celebrate while he feels miserable and lonely.
But don't despair! It doesn't have to be this way. You can break free from social anxiety and discover true confidence with the right help. I know this because I overcame my battle with social anxiety and have helped my clients do the same since 2019, utilizing the TTH Method™.
What is social anxiety?
Social anxiety is the fear of being judged and evaluated negatively by other people, leading to feelings of inadequacy, inferiority, self-consciousness, embarrassment, humiliation, and depression.
It's important to know that social anxiety may not be generalized. Instead, it may be very specific. For example, you may feel confident talking to people one-on-one but may feel tense and sick to your stomach when presenting in a group.
Many people shrug social anxiety off by claiming, "I'm introverted," but introversion simply implies the need for alone time or reduced external stimulation to refuel one's energy. While social anxiety is feeling highly anxious in social situations.
One of the tell-tale signs of social anxiety is the overuse of alcohol as a "social lubricant" in uncomfortable social situations. However, it's important to address the root cause as 20% of those with social anxiety also suffer from alcohol abuse.
Social anxiety symptoms
Do you experience intense fear, a racing heart, or excessive sweating when meeting new people or being the center of attention? Believe me when I tell you that you are not alone. Those who battle social anxiety feel significant emotional distress in a variety of situations, and it can result in symptoms like:
- Muscle tension
- Upset stomach
- Dry mouth
- Temporary inability to recall (mind goes blank)
- Stuttering and stumbling over words
These are just a few examples – social anxiety can manifest in various ways. But there's hope – the TTH Method™ can help you overcome these symptoms and take control.
How can hypnosis help with social anxiety?
Social anxiety can hold you back in more ways than one, but one tool has the power to change it all - hypnosis. The natural process allows you to access memories, events, and core beliefs contributing to your anxiety. During a session, you will be guided to transform the emotions and fears.
Over the past few years, I've enriched my approach to social anxiety with the TTH Method™, which incorporates somatic techniques, mindfulness, and behavior modifications. Not only do I utilize modern hypnosis to help you reprogram old beliefs and desensitize yourself to old triggers or situations, but I also teach you relaxation techniques and how to reframe your thoughts and beliefs about social situations. Then, we develop a customized action plan so that you feel yourself progressing.
Most clients notice a difference after just one session. However, with additional sessions, they find their lives are more fulfilling and enjoyable. They feel they can be more authentic, which is true freedom!
