How to Stop Being Shy
“I had always been shy, especially in my teenage years, but I didn’t expect to still feel the same in my mid twenties.

What is Shyness?
Shyness is a very common personality trait. It is a form of social anxiety that affects millions of people and can have a detrimental effect on their enjoyment of life. One of the major issues with shyness is the fact that it stops people from engaging in activities and causes them to avoid situations purely because of concerns about their shyness. They miss out on opportunities in life because of their fear and insecurity.
What Does Shyness Feel Like?
The typical feelings that shy people experience include being worried about what others think, feelings of isolation, wanting to be more outgoing but afraid to be, and other forms of limiting behaviour.
A shy person may:
- Practise or replay conversations in their head
- Fixate on comparatively small moments of social interaction
- Avoid social contact even when it’s detrimental to them
- Feel nervous or anxious in social situations or at the thought of them
The question that many ask themselves is quite simply “how to stop being shy?” My answer to that is hypnotherapy.
Hypnotherapy to Stop Being Shy
So why does hypnotherapy work so well when other treatment options fail? Basically it’s because, unlike many other therapies that aim to mask the symptoms, a skilled hypnotherapist works with the client to find out why they are suffering from shyness and then changes the person’s attitudes and behaviour using a variety of tried and tested techniques.
For many people shyness and social anxiety can be treated quickly and in as little as three sessions. Imagine how good it would feel if you no longer felt shy in social situations. Being able to speak your mind, enjoy activities that you were previously afraid to do. All of these can be a reality if you rid yourself of your fears and anxiety through effective hypnotherapy.
