Social Anxiety Hypnosis

Do you dread meetings parties dates?


Social phobia is a constant fear that other people are looking at you and judging you. It is all about how other people might think of you. You fear you will be criticized for how you speak, dress, or act. Or you think people will find something else wrong about you, and secretly despise you. Social Anxiety hypnosis has a good record of clearing it.

Your underlying problem is that at some time in the past you actually did come to the attention of someone, or some group, and were criticised for something you did. That criticism caused a real emotion. It made you feel hurt, rejected, isolated, ashamed. And you never, never want to feel that way again. Whenever you think about a situation like the first one, you automatically remember the shame and embarrassment.

Your social phobia is the fear of having to experience that original pain again, and your mind will do anything to avoid it. Anything. However, strangely enought, no matter what form your social phobia takes, it is because your unconscious mind trying to protect you. It wants to stop you from ever being criticised again, so you don't have to go through that feeling again.

Over time, your initial fear experience gets magnified. It grows until the dread of it becomes the governing factor in your life. In almost every case the original incident is forgotten, and you have no idea why you have this irrational fear.

Physical symptoms of social phobia

The symptoms associated with Social Phobia are actually fear reactions:
feeling sick,
feeling weak,
heart racing,
dry mouth,
stammering and stuttering,
sweaty palms,
loose bowels,
urge to run away.


Public Speaking

Public Speaking social phobia. This happens when you are thrust into the limelight, when you becomethe focus of attention in a group. When that happens you feel that everyone will judge what you say, and how you say it.

If you are a manager, it can be a presentation at work. Or a speech at a wedding. It might even happen when you have to speak at a staff meeting, or justĀ  asking a question. Some people cannot even ask for directions in the street, or raise their hand at an auction.

Stage Fright

Stage Fright

Stage fright, or Performance Anxiety, is similar, where the person fears that they will be thrust into some sort of public performance and they will be judged negatively. Many actors go through agonies before every performance. It also is felt by sales reps, shop assistants, teachers and others who have to go out and deal with the public. It can stop people from enjoying dancing, demonstrating how to do something, collecting for charity, or even just wearing glasses. The person is sure that everyone will be looking at them, and just waiting for them to make some sort of mistake.


Personal Competence

Personal Competence

Some people are unable to do things they can normally do if another person is around. In a work situation they may be unable to type on a keyboard if someone is watching, or be unable to write down a telephone number, or to make a phone call. It doesn't matter if the other person is watching them or not, sometimes just another person being there is enough.

Social Anxiety


Some people would rather die than dare to askĀ  for a date. The overwhelming fear of rejection is just too high. Yet, the same person is quite happy to say 'Yes!' if asked on a date. Dating anxiety is very, very, common. And totally unnecessary. Hypnosis can usually clear it away easily and permanently.

Assert Yourself

Self Assertion

Some people are unable to confront another person, or argue their case, or stick up for themselves. They know they should, they know they are entitled to, but they just cannot bring themselves to do it. In the work situation this applies to asking for a raise, confronting customers, and refusing additional work. If you get walked over all the time, then hypnosis has the answer.

Can't use public toilets

Shy Bladder

Some people are totally unable to use public toilets in case someone else comes in before they are finished, and cannot relieve themselves at all if there are other people anywhere near. They sometimes have to drive for miles to get home to use private facilities. In forced group situations such as barracks and ships men have been know to hold everything in all day and then get up in the middle of the night to avoid the gaze of others. This is just a special case of Social Phobia.


Anxiety Behaviour

Substance abuse
