OVERCOMING SOCIAL ANXIETY!
So you have social anxiety – what can you do about it…
What is social anxiety?
When we think of social anxiety, we often think about different social situations that make us feel shy, self-conscious or uncomfortable. The most common example of this is the feeling of being “out of place” or “awkward” at a party or family gathering. However, there is a big difference between feeling awkward at a party and having a deep rooted feeling of despair, anxiety or panic when in the company of other people.
Not many people enjoy receiving criticism, judgement or even a compliment from others, but for some, the fear of receiving such judgements can lead to paranoia, extreme discomfort and panic attacks. In some cases, individuals have had to leave their jobs, school or colleges in order to deal with their social anxiety and in extreme cases, even limit their time out in public for fear of an anxiety panic attack!

There are many symptoms of social anxiety and as with every other phobia, they vary in severity depending on the level of anxiety you are feeling.
When a sufferer of social anxiety finds themselves in a social situation that they are not comfortable in, they often experience the following:
Heavy sweating and/or blushing
Shaking of the limbs
Nervous stuttering or stammering during conversation
Drying of the mouth
Shortness of breath
Weakness of the body
Sufferers also try to avoid any form of eye contact and make it difficult for themselves to be noticed or approached. For social anxiety sufferers, speaking in public is an almost impossible task.
What can I do to overcome, managing my social anxiety?
For the most part, social anxiety normally has a root cause. This is often a deep lying sub-conscious condition such as a previous embarrassment or traumatic life event which may have shattered your confidence, broken your trust or completely cooled your interest in the people, or in the world around you. Anxiety Hypnosis has been proven to be extremely successful in the area of overcoming social fears and allows you to analyse and understand your sub-conscious thought patterns, leading you to fully overcome any issues you may have, not just cover them up.
Anxiety Hypnosis can also restore your self-confidence and boost your self-esteem to new levels, as well as preparing you for public speaking or appearances. You may not think this would apply to you, but I can assure you at sometime in the future you will have to do some public speaking. This could be thanking people at a wedding, christening, birthday, anniversary or any other social event you can think of. So think of receiving Anxiety Hypnosis as an investment in not only now but also your future as this is a very important step to take right now.

3 Sit in a chair, imagine playing out your worst social fears, but know you are still at home in the chair.
4 Tell others of your problem as most people are very supportive and want to help.
5 Unfortunately you will have to face your fears in order to conquer them.
6 If you’re going to a party, see if you can be the first to arrive, Then you don’t have the BIG problem of facing everyone right away.
7 Fire yourself up with high energy music or a drum beat as this will energise you and so help override the negative feelings and take this high energy music with you.
8 Last but not least, now take ACTION and if the panic feelings start, just calm down back away for a moment and regather your thoughts and go for it again. As the saying goes ‘Slowly, …slowly, …catch-a-monkey’.
