People phobia can make you miss out on activities in life, making new friends and developing important relationships.

Life is Relationships

What is this negative feeling?

More technically, social phobia is a fear of being judged and evaluated by other people. Those who have a fear of people want to be included.  They want to make friends and be invited to social gatherings but they are perceived to be shy, quiet, aloof or disinterested.

Having this people phobia can often be perceived as being unfriendly but in fact, those who suffer from social phobia are the complete opposite. It is their people phobia that holds them back.

Usually, those who suffer from social phobia or people phobia experience extreme distress in situations such as social gatherings, being the centre of attention and talking in groups. It can even cause nervousness in simple tasks such as speaking on the phone, paying for shopping or sometimes any form of communication with others.

People phobia can also cause you to get embarrassed easily and feel insecure in social situations with a feeling of not knowing what to say. Your mind can go completely blank even though you want to join in with conversations. The bottom line is, having people phobia and social phobia can make you very unhappy and in some cases lead to depression if not resolved.

Symptoms can include:

  • Sweating
  • Blushing
  • Stammering
  • Nausea
  • Shaking
  • Racing heart
  • Dry mouth
  • Feeling weak
  • Trouble breathing
  • Mind going blank

In severe cases, social phobia and fear of people can lead to a full-blown panic attacks, which might require immediate medical attention. Having a fear of people might encourage you to self-medicate in order to “loosen up” prior to a situation that you know will make you nervous.  This is only a quick fix and self-medicating can cause all sorts of long-term health problems and become a real issue in itself.

“I’ve suffered from people phobia my whole life. I found it hard just to leave the house without the thought that everyone was looking at me. Adam helped me overcome my fears.

He understood completely just how shy I was and straight away in the first session my negative thoughts disappeared. I’m now so much more confident and I can’t see this confidence going away.

I no longer have a fear of people and I leave the house with my head held high.” 

“I was sceptical at first because I’ve had to deal with social phobia my whole life. I’ve missed out on parties, weddings, holidays and I’ve just been wasting my life. I knew I had to get help. 

Adam straight away put me at ease.  It was good to talk to someone who had experienced a fear of people themselves. After my first session it was like everything suddenly became clear.

I felt happy. I felt confident about myself and no longer wanted to hide away. I haven’t missed a party since because my people phobia is just no longer there. I can’t recommend Adam enough.”

“I’m the youngest of a large family so my older siblings usually dominated every conversation growing up. I was blamed for everything and bullied at school so these things really knocked my confidence.

I became jealous of other people because they all seemed so outgoing and I was stuck being painfully shy. I got in contact with Adam because enough was enough. My people phobia stopped me from joining in – even with my own family.

Adam really helped me overcome my social phobia. I’ve honestly never felt better and I now feel like I fit in. I feel like a confident, outgoing person and I’m no longer the quiet one of the family.”

“Some people might think hypnosis is just a fad or that it won’t work but don’t believe any of that. It really does work and I know because I’ve tried it.

I had one long session with Adam for my social phobia. I had a fear of people, simple as that, but now, I just don’t. My self-esteem is high, my confidence is high and I just feel so good about myself. I used to be so shy that my heart would race every time I approached the counter in a shop or if I had to phone someone up.

Now I do those things without even thinking and it’s all thanks to Adam. I couldn’t have done it without him. Fear of people – I don’t know what that is anymore.”
