Hypnotherapy and hypnosis and neuro linguistic programming (nlp) tools and strategies can support the development of social confidence through the creation of new thought, feeling and behavior habits. It feels good to be able to manage social situations with relative ease.
Many people find social situations
to be challenging. In fact I would say that the majority of people have some
level of un-ease in some social situations. Like all things, it is a matter of
degree isn’t it?
Whether it is meeting new people, beginning a conversation, being asked to explain an idea in front of a group or simply finding words to express the thoughts running around the head, most people are not as comfortable as they would like to be.
Our comfort with social
situations can increase. Our lack of comfort is most often a learned response
that has become a second nature or “talent.” It become easy to move into the
position of fear/anxiety/self doubt around other people, often simply because
this stance has been so well programmed. In fact, many people have decided that
they have social anxiety when in fact we could instead say that these people
have done a fantastic job of getting really good at something they really do
not want. If it doesn’t serve us but has become habituated, we are very skilled
already in self hypnosis.
We need to use this power for
good. To do so requires a better and more disciplined understanding of how we
influence ourselves. Instructed self hypnosis and nlp tools can support the
movement in greater and increasing comfort within social situations.
People who have developed the
ability to connect with others are at an advantage in terms of forging new
personal and business relationships. These individuals are more likely to
describe their social lives as satisfying. This does not mean their social circle
is necessarily large, but the individuals within it have qualified to be there.
The ability to begin small, with
“small” talk is a skill that can be developed.
The ability to get a read on others is a natural skill that is muffled
by anxious signals. The ability to create realistic goals for different social
situation comes with an understanding of how we personally operate and how
others operate as well.
An understanding of useful hypnosis and nlp principles can put the “socially anxiety” person in a very powerful position. A mindset that allows for a natural unfolding of rapport with others can be built and strengthened.
