Social Phobia is a fear of embarassing or humiliating ‘on the spot’ type situations in front of other people. This is also known as social anxiety, social anxiety disorder, fear of being judged. Almost everyone experiences some social anxiety in their life – and its certainly one of the most common symptoms I treat.

Social phobia is a pervasive fear of any situation where the sufferer is likely to feel ‘on the spot’, embarassed, humiliated or judged – for example; dinner parties, public speaking, interviews, appearing in court, singing and stuttering.

I was suffering increasing social anxiety and low self-esteem. I felt completely trapped and unable to change anything. My friends and family would probably not have realized that I suffered from these feelings… it is amazing. I feel as if a large wad of cotton wool has been lifted from my head – as if I’ve stepped out from the fog. I now feel really happy and I feel as if I could do anxiety social phobia hypnosis hypnotherapy uxbridge ruislip pinner london

Associated symptoms include sensitivity to criticism, negative self image, fear of rejection, difficulty in being assertive and feelings of inferiority. The social phobic worries continuously about how others ‘see’ them, and what others may think about them – it is not surprising then that the sufferer usually spends a lot of time creating the image they want others to see.
Usually the social phobic is quite adept at concealing their anxiety from others, although there is sometimes a difficulty in maintaining eye contact. It can be described as like having a guard dog, sitting on your shoulder, assessing and analysing everything that you say and do in the presence of other people.

I was not happy with myself I wanted to change and tried many forms of therapies namely, reflexology, acupuncture and hypnotherapy but none of them helped to get to the root of the problem.

I think I came to see cara at the right time and i am glad I did as I had no energy to do anything even everyday things like house work, shopping, picking kids up from school seemed a great effort until I came to see cara, she was warm and approachable and made me feel at ease, and after 4 sessions I began to notice the difference and felt great and had energy. I am no longer nervous and rigid around people, I dont fear social situations like i used to. I no longer feel overwhelmed with tasks, I just get on with things now.

This treatment is suitable for a quick fix for a confidence boost for easy-to-control, simpler problems. Perhaps you have a presentation coming up at work, a job interview, a forthcoming driving test or wedding speech in the near future? With suggestion therapy, you are relaxed into a very nice, calm, state, and then given suggestions entirely for your benefit, which will help you to feel calmer and more confident when you need to.

Please note that I always accompany suggestion therapy sessions with fundemental areas of the Thrive Programme to give you additional insight and control over your issues.
