Using Core Transformation and Wholeness Work we can resolve the anxiety or fear on a a deep emotional level. I will be interested in what you are actually experiencing, rather than a previous diagnosis. "Social Anxiety," for instance, can mean any of a number of things: feeling "judged," being overly concerned about what others think, "mind reading" (believing you know others' thoughts, even though you don't), a difficulty communicating or engaging with others. Once we tease out the particularities, I will use Core Transformation and Wholeness (and standard hypnosis sometimes) to resolve them. Self-talk, self-perception, self-esteem may also come into play; I have special ways of working with these.

Our approach is collaborative, interdisciplinary, and integrative. We work on mind, body, spirit. We often work in communities or groups. We do not focus on diagnosis but the person.

We will also work on practices that support change and focus. Community is essential for fear of any kind. Healthy communication requires a commitment to telling the truth to ourselves and others. Being in a group helps so many things. Relationships are never easy. We will make learn ways of making good decisions and learn new skills.

I’m dubious about the term “social anxiety.” I don’t doubt for a second how paralyzing or distressing it is to be anxious in social situations, but diagnosing someone with social anxiety sometimes feels like an excuse for a quick fix: “Here’s a prescription!” That’s not my approach (although I get it if that’s where you are now). Whether you’ve been diagnosed or not doesn’t matter to me. What matters is that you want to be more confident and comfortable around people. Because I can help you with that. The tools I use – energy psychology, hypnosis and NLP (neurolinguistic programming), nutritional guidance, and voice dialogue (or “parts work”) – all have a part. As can figuring out if “social anxiety” is part of a bigger problem, such as chronic anxiety or perfectionism or a general distrust of people, or a seemingly unrelated bad experience that subconsciously affects you in social situations. Human beings are social animals. Social connection is so important that a lack of it is a reliable predictor of early death. And technology now gives us so many ways to “connect” that it’s easy to stop connecting in meaningful ways. If you’re tired of not being able to be yourself (or the person you want to be) in social situations, there’s a good chance I can help. Please get in touch.
