I was wondering whether a person can be completely treated of their SA if they undergo hypnotherapy?

evidence of that?
when you experience an event in life you experience it through the 5 senses. millions of bits of info come in every second and your concious mind can only handle 7 bits of info therefore the rest is dealt with by the uncconious.

the uncconious filters the info through your beleifs and memoires by deleting distorting and genralizing the ifno. your concious mind is left with the result of the filtering process.

the beleifs you have and the memories you have will determine what is left int he concious mind. for example a social phobic will have thoughts like ''they dont like me'' '' i dont belong here'' etc... they will have images of worst case scenario's , there focus will be inward and also they will notice people's disaproving looks etc.... (all of these things are what is left conciously.

the type of things left int he concious mind depends on what beleifs you have. its safe to say that a normal person wont have the same things as a social phobic

whatever is int he cocnious mind creates a physiology which creates a state (anxiety) which then creates the social phobic behaviour

any therapist,, cbt practionaire etc.... will tell you what ive just told you. look at gillian butlers book. look at the clark and wells diagramme for how social anxiety works int he brain. look at any book written by the legend that is aron t beck and thy will all tell thats how SA works and that beleifs are the ROOT CAUSE

if you didnt have socially anxious beleifs you wouldnt filter the event the way you do , therefore you would nt be in an anxious state hence you would not behave in a socially anxious way

it is widely accepted that hypnosis deals with the unconcious mind

sorry but I dont believe in the unconsious, SA is mostly due to not having learned appropriate relaxation and socialising skills when a child

I think we are the wrong type to be hypnotised but try it if you like, as long as its not too expensive
