Shyness, which is often termed social anxiety is a painful problem for many people. Being shy or anxious around others interferes with an individuals ability to enjoy social and work related interactions because a shy person lacks the confidence to join in with conversations, or feels they are unable to project themselves at work. Shyness is a psychological avoidance type trait in which an individual fails to engage with others and this stops them from reaching their full potential in life. Examples of shyness at work include avoiding talking in front a group, not speaking to colleges or failure to put themselves forward for potential promotions even though they may well be the best one for the job. From the social perspective, shy people tend to find it difficult to make friends as well as potential love interests or partners and therefore end up with the emotional consequence of loneliness, which can then lead to more serious issues such as depression, low self esteem and isolation.
The fact is that shyness can have a serious and detrimental impact on the individuals way of life. Shy people are often seen as uninteresting, keeping themselves to themselves and often are misjudged. The reasons behind the individual’s shyness problem can be complex, but maybe due to domineering parents during childhood or possibly bullying at school. For many shy people how to find out what the relevant reasons are and how to combat shyness, is where hypnotherapy holds the key.
Hypnotherapy can help discover the reasons behind the anxiety and shyness that is impairing the individual. By unlocking the root cause of social anxiety, the person can develop more confidence and self esteem which will significantly improve their social interactions.
Hypnotherapy provides the means to achieve greater confidence with the help of a qualified hypnotherapist who is experienced in helping people overcome shyness
