Suffer from Social Anxiety?

social anxiety phobiaSocial anxiety or social phobia is quite a common issue in the UK. Many people suffer from anxiety and so it can help to know that you are not alone. Social anxiety can sometimes seem overwhelming and prevent you from enjoying living your life to the fullest.

Anxiety can be caused by many situations, experiences and events. What makes one person anxious will not necessarily have the same effect on another person. It may be that your perception of your situation, based on your past life experiences is playing a part in your current feeling of anxiety.

Social Anxiety Disorder Symptoms

While we are all different, generally the following discriptions are applicable to social anxiety:-

  • Feelings that others are always judging you
  • Worried about other people’s thoughts about you
  • Fear of feeling uncomfortable, awkward or self conscious with other people
  • Anxiety about embarrassing yourself or being embarrassed by others
  • Excessive worry before and after an event (eg, wedding, party, etc)
  • Sweating, blushing, shaking, nausea

There are other symptoms too that you might be able to relate to.

Social Anxiety and Hypnotherapy

It is important that you should seek the advice of your doctor. Hypnotherapy haa been used to help reduce stress and bring a great sense of relaxation. For any form of anxiety self hypnosis is a great relaxation process that can be learnt in one session of hypnotherapy. I usually teach you self hypnosis in the first session. If you practice self hypnosis regularly it can play an effective role in feeling less stressed and tense in those social situations.
