Social Anxiety - Session 2 of 12

Part A – Hypnotherapy session

This session number 2 in this 12 week course to overcome social anxiety disorder.

There are 2 aims with this session:

  1. To condition something called an anchor. This is a neurolinguistic programming NLP technique which links a sensory input (like touching your thumb and finger together) to an emotional state. In this hypnotherapy session, we are linking relaxation and calmness to touching your right thumb and index finger together. The more you practise this, the stronger the link becomes, and you will be able to just touch your right thumb and index finger together, at any time you like in your everyday life, to quickly feel relaxed and calm.
  2. The main hypnotherapy part of this session is designed to help you increase your confidence and self-esteem. Again, the more you practise listening to this session, the more effective it becomes for you.

Aim to use this hypnotherapy session daily for 1 week, or at least 3 times a week, before moving onto the next session.

Part B - Tapping

There is an acupuncture tapping routine (derived from Thought Field Therapy TFT and Emotional Freedom Technique EFT) to be used alongside this hypnotherapy session. It can be very effective at reducing or eliminating fear, anxiety, frustration and other negative emotions. To get the best results, it does need to be practised regularly. I recommend practising it 3 times a day. It only takes 1-2 minutes to do one cycle of tapping. So in a day, it only takes about 5-10 minutes in total to practise it 3 times.
