Do you often feel awkward or nervous in a social situation? Such as in a group lecture, asking for further explanation in a classroom or group setting, or standing in front of the opposite sex, not knowing what to do next?
Do you feel worried about giving formal presentations or a speech in front of other people? We all suffer from social situations like these at one time or another, but some manage to adjust to them well while some can’t. People who are socially anxious are highly apprehensive by others who may or will criticize their social or public behavior.
How does social anxiety affect your life?
Social anxiety is not similar to being “shy.” It is a legitimate psychological disorder that’s recognized by the medical community. You will be so terrified of being ridiculed by others that you may avoid things like dating, dancing, or even speaking. You will also suffer from physical symptoms like nausea, sweating, trouble breathing, and a rapid heartbeat. In fact, your fears and symptoms may be so distressing that you simply start avoiding being in social situations.
If left untreated, you can develop extreme loneliness and even depression. That’s why it is so important that this social anxiety disorder should be addressed through therapy.
Rapid transformational therapy or hypnosis can help.
Your current fears and symptoms of anxiety are likely the results of something from your past. During rapid transformational therapy (RTT) or hypnosis, you will be guided into a trance-like state. In the trance state, a qualified hypnotherapist will access your subconscious mind, where all of your memories, both major and minor, are stored. That way, you can figure out what’s causing your current problems.
RTT social anxiety disorder therapy can help you uncover memories that you don’t even consciously remember, but they play a huge role in how you act and feel today. Something as simple as not being asked to dance at a middle school party or having an awful first date may have gotten blown out of proportion by your subconscious mind over the years. Instead of seeing the situation as what it was, your subconscious sees it as a major event that will be repeated if you go to another party.
RTT therapy or hypnotherapy may also be able to uncover a more chronic problem like a parent who always criticized, belittled, or judged you. If you spent your childhood constantly feeling like “you’re good for nothing,” it can affect how you feel today. You may think that, no matter what you do, you will always be the “wet blanket” of the party or someone who is not worth talking to on a date.
During hypnosis, a certified hypnotist will be able to re-program your subconscious mind so that it no longer uses those events as a basis for how you feel today. Instead of thinking that those negative events will repeat themselves if you go out for the evening, your subconscious mind can learn to view things like parties and dates as a positive thing – as something that you should look forward to and enjoy.
During a Social Anxiety hypnotherapy session, you may even visualize yourself at a party, confidently talking to a group of people, having a fantastic time. That way, when you walk into a social situation, your subconscious will reassure you instead of telling you that everyone will make fun of you. Therefore, most people consider RTT therapy in Bermuda, United Kingdom, for a long-term or permanent relief from their social anxiety and phobias.
Hypnosis is an excellent tool that you can learn from an experienced hypnotherapist offering RTT therapy in Bermuda, United Kingdom, or anywhere. Once you know how to relax your inner mind and your physical body, you can achieve the ultimate goal of self-improvement.
The therapist can help you win as little as 4 to 6 sessions when dealing with Social Anxiety Disorder unless the situation is more complex. In that case, hypnotherapy sessions will vary from person to person. Hypnosis has been shown to reduce anxiety, phobias, and unhealthy habit or behavioral patterns. If you really want to overcome your shyness, RTT therapy needs to be a big part of your treatment plan.
