How I help my clients resolve their social anxiety –

 
The Problem
Logically you know you’re safe. You know that person isn’t going to hurt you — it’s not the end of the world if the interaction doesn’t go perfectly. Consciously… rationally…intellectually… you’re safe. You should feel fine. But you don’t. There’s a part of your mind that sends a very powerful signal of anxiety. Your thoughts race. Your stomach clenches. Your heart pounds.

The Solution
To use hypnosis to work directly with the part of your mind that’s sending that anxiety signal. So you have the chance to bring help directly to that subconscious/emotional part of your mind — the part that doesn’t care about all those reasons why you should feel fine. So you have the chance to genuinely SOLVE the problem where it’s happening rather than just talking about it or learning techniques to manage it.

Oftentimes, but not always. There are many different ways people experience fear of social anxiety, and you may need a combination of approaches to get things solved completely. All the work is tailored to you as an individual, so that no matter how you’re “doing” the fear, we can use the right combination of approaches to get your problem solved successfully.
I can’t say how long it would take to get things resolved. You may work slowly and carefully, or you may work quickly. Some problems are straightforward, some are complicated.  My goal is for my clients to find a lasting solution as quickly as possible without using ‘band-aid’ approaches or cutting corners.
The vast majority of clients I’ve actually worked with for social anxiety have solved their problem. It’s been more work for some than for for others, and many have resolved other issues in the process. There are people who don’t get good results, though. Fortunately, I’m usually able to identify them before they start, so they can find someone who’s a better fit for them.
I structure my fees so that clients get great results. 

I charge a flat fee because I find –

Clients get better results when they commit up front to spend the money/time it takes to solve their problem (results aren’t as good when people dabble and  “try hypnosis”).

Clients get better results when they’re not worried about how much time they’re taking.

Clients get better results when they’re mid-process and they’re not worried about how much more it might cost them to get to the point where they’re successful.

So here, clients pay one flat fee to resolve their fear of public speaking.  It’s one price, regardless of how many sessions it takes to solve the problem completely.   ‘Solved’ as both defined by and judged by the client.  Fees vary depending on the situation and the severity of the problem.  Ideally the value the client places on the solution matches or exceeds the fee.

I guarantee all social anxiety work with a half-back refund.  If a client reaches the ten session mark and they’re making good progress, no problem.  We continue until the work is finished.  If they’ve done that much work and they don’t feel like they’ve made progress, I guarantee the work by refunding half the fee.

It’s also guaranteed if a client has a problem down the road. “Relapses” are rare, but if they ever happen – whether it’s three weeks, three months or three years later – they’re 100% covered.  The client is back here in the office and we resolve whatever we may have missed.
