Managing Social Anxiety

Many times, with social anxiety, our minds tell us how bad and uncomfortable we are, and how everyone is judging us. But are they? We don't even see people's faces. Watch the video for more explanation.

This is a good video. Have you ever tried EFT (emotional Freedom Technique) to get over these anxieties? I have had agoraphobia for 30 years and many types of therapies. I found EFT and it changed my life. I now have the tools for panic, anxiety and all kinds of feelings I used to push down. I finally love myself. It has been a miracle. Thanks for listening. Jean

Thank you Jean Maurie, I have tried it! With great success. It is so interesting how things work for some people and others things work for others. Perhaps it is a readiness to embrace being healed and getting better. A belief that it is possible and a trust in the provider and yourself. I should sometime list all the possible therapist next week!

Yes Jodi, It is interesting how some therapies work for some and others not so much. I've been through a lot of them and each helped to a degree. I'm learning that I am very sensitive and because of what I do, it is a gift.
I know some hypnotherapists who have given up their hypnotherapy practice and moved into EFT because it is so much faster.
