Why Hypnotherapy for Approach Anxiety?

Having the confidence to approach a stranger, a potential date, or your boss is key to progressing both your relationships and career. Approach anxiety not only causes you to miss out on potential friends and opportunities, but it also takes away your power to choose, leaving you vulnerable to the choices of others. Our unique combination of Hypnotherapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Thought Field Therapy (TFT) can help you to take charge of your life and the people you choose to have in it.

We use a combination of techniques to explore what’s really going on in your subconscious mind to trigger the negative thoughts that lead to your anxious response. We then remove these, giving you a different, positive response when approaching others in just one 3 – 4 hour session.

Adam has worked extensively with Hypnotherapist Paul McKenna and helped hundreds of people overcome approach anxiety through his treatments.

Doctor’s Recommendation:

Thank you Adam for the half day session. What a transformation. I feel stronger than ever. I feel a huge weight has been lifted. So many people deserve your treatment. You are quite the professional
