Course Description

This course will considerably help to reduce your Social anxiety in public!

Social anxiety is a mixture of parts all working at the same time in your awareness, which includes various mixed feelings, sensations, high levels of self-consciousness and fear – real or imagined of any form of close proximity contact with other people in public or in social settings and this includes anticipation, apprehension, hyper-vigilance, fear of criticism, mild to strong feelings of being critically or negatively judged and assessed, evaluated, judged or pigeonholed, not to mention an alteration or increase in breathing, a tightening of the chest, butterflies and stomach turning sensations which can include experiences of electricity or impulses running up and down the stomach and chest along with a pounding heart, excessive swallowing, wide-eyed glares and a strong urge to withdraw or avoid that situation at all costs which can accompany feelings and fears that things can and will escalate and get worse any minute now if one doesn’t leave or move to safe ground.

Social anxiety is a mixture of many things all taking place, in an ebbing way and leads to a sense that people are in some way a threat therefore apprehension and anticipation is very high amongst people in social settings.

Social anxiety is a disorder that affects 10 to 12 percent of the population to some extent. Social anxiety is considered one of the top three most common anxiety disorders.

Anyone suffering from this condition will engage for the most part in aversion and avoidance of places, people and situations which can result in a sense that they are being observed, read, critically judged and assessed and any minute now they are going to become aware that someone knows their innermost feelings and thoughts or fears which includes shyness, feelings of inadequacy, shame, embarrassment or even blushing about people knowing things about you that are private and personal.

For most sufferers this is a very real condition whilst in most cases it is completely irrational and unjustified in other words nothing is going to actually happen, just that the sufferer thinks it will based on certain unconscious beliefs.

These symptoms or reactions that surface and arise when the sufferer comes into contact with social situations is the unconscious minds away of presenting you with uncomfortable experiences which will ultimately lead you to move away from a perceived danger even though there may be no danger whatsoever.

Once the unconscious mind has stored or learnt information or beliefs that going amongst people is in some way dangerous or a threat then it will try to protect you by producing the unwanted and intrusive reactions. The unconscious mind is not able to decipher or analyse it is not wanted or real as it just reacts like a computer program. These intrusions are connected to the fight or flight process which has evolved over time through human life.

To try and fight the feelings and experiences that enter into your conscious awareness at times is futile because if the unconscious mind believes you need those reactions or symptoms then there is not much you can do about it except avoid the situation or move away from it at that time.

For those that suffer from social anxiety disorder will find this course is beneficial and easy to follow. An effective self-help programme which has been clinically proven to relieve the social anxiety being experienced.
