The Conway Practice Can Help With Your Fear Of Blushing
You may have arrived at the point in your life when you have decided you really need to find someone in Highgate who can help with your fear of blushing. We all blush, but for some this can affect their quality of life. You may feel that people will make fun of you if you blush, so you find yourself avoiding social functions where you believe you will be watched. In fact generally speaking, people aren’t likely to take pleasure in your embarrassment and would be supportive if you allowed them.
The fear of blushing (Elythrophobia) is far more common than you may think and you’re certainly not alone with the problem. It’s a complex phobia and may be combined with social anxiety and a general anxiety phobia (GAD). It can be self-perpetuating; the more concerned you are about blushing the more you increase the occasions when it happens. If your brain is focused on the stress of blushing the frequency will increase considerably, leaving you trapped in a vicious circle.
How does this happen? Our flight or fight response, which we all experience at times, is triggered by our nervous system. Adrenaline floods through the body, resulting in a physical reaction. This can increase the heart rate and adrenaline, which is also known as epinephrine, widens certain blood vessels. When the facial veins become temporarily wider, blushing is the side effect. If your fear of blushing is linked to a social anxiety disorder, this may be caused through irrational fears that are buried within past experiences, perhaps from when you were a child, relating to how you were conditioned to cope with fear. The trigger for blushing is likely to vary greatly for each person and identifying it is the key.
Through hypnotherapy and NLP sessions in Highgate you can learn how to let go of the belief that everyone is thinking less of you or making a negative judgement. You can be helped to increase your level of self-confidence and learn to relax. Even something as simple as releasing tension, especially in your neck and shoulders is likely to make a significant difference, allowing the redness to fade. It’s also important to understand that most people won’t even notice when you blush unless you draw attention to it.
Jonathan Conway, a qualified hypnotherapist, NLP Master Practitioner & NLP Coach with over 18 years’ experience, will show you how to control your anxiety and help you to understand why you blush, enabling you to retrain your subconscious mind to accept that it’s quite normal and that no one will judge you for it.

How Hypnotherapy in Highgate Can Help With Your Fear of Public Speaking
Do you need help to overcome your fear of public speaking When you’re faced with standing up and speaking in front of an audience, even a small one, your mind may go completely blank and a feeling of panic may set in.
That fear may be so powerful that your heart rate quickens, your breathing becomes shallow and you feel that you are close to collapse. This is actually a common phobia and can often be traced back to a conditioned belief or an upsetting incident that occurred earlier in your life.
Hypnotherapy sessions in Highgate help you to identify and recognise the root cause of your fear. The actual problem may not be the concern of whether you’ll remember what you have to say, it’s more likely to be a deep fear of receiving a negative reaction from your audience. In the past you may have felt that you were always being ‘put down’ or criticised by siblings, parents or teachers in the classroom in front of others.
This fear of public speaking may be limiting your professional life if you are expected to present to your superiors or talk at seminars. It may also inhibit your performance in interviews and restrict your chances of promotion if you have to present to a panel.
Students may avoid classes where they are afraid that they will perform badly if they have to explain their ideas or read out loud. This self-consciousness may also affect other situations when communication is necessary, such as asking a stranger for directions. This is especially the case when there is a combination of phobias; a fear of public speaking (glossophobia) and a social anxiety phobia.
What you are afraid of most, a negative reaction, is unlikely to happen. These unfounded fears can be helped through hypnotherapy and NLP, enabling you to overcome them and move forward. This will ultimately reduce your self-consciousness and increase your self-confidence. Hypnotherapy and NLP sessions with Jonathan at the Conway Practice in Highgate are completely safe, leaving you in a relaxed state of mind and in control throughout.
Using the power of your own imagination, visualisation techniques will allow you to approach public speaking in a confident and calm state of mind. If you would like to know more about how you can be helped to overcome your fear of public speaking, please contact Jonathan at the Conway Practice in Highgate, or leave a comment below.
Do You Need Help To Lose Weight In Highgate?
If your inability to maintain a balanced diet is affecting your self-confidence and self-esteem, now may well be the time to seek help to lose weight in Highgate at the Conway Practice. Are you tired of going around in circles, following trendy diets and then returning to old eating habits, putting the weight back on again?
Losing weight and maintaining that loss isn’t actually as difficult as you may believe. Everything you need to succeed is within you. Hypnotherapy and NLP can help you to build healthy habits, easily and naturally. During the sessions, Jonathan will show you how to develop a positive self-image, re-educating your subconscious mind. Your eating habits may be out of control, damaging your health and affecting your lifestyle.
Your problem may not be simply overeating and conditions such as anorexia or bulimia may be involved. It’s common for food to become a form of emotional comfort during periods of stress and anxiety, resulting in a struggle to find the willpower to lose weight or get your eating habits under control. You may not realise that food isn’t the problem, the root cause can be your emotional attachment to eating and this is what needs to change.
Depression and high stress levels often trigger a need for what we call ‘comfort eating’. Perhaps you were rewarded as a child with food or special treats such as cakes or sweets when you had behaved well for your parents or carers, or to make you feel better if you were upset.
Food can be one of the most powerful forms of control, even from birth. Hypnotherapy and NLP can help you to strengthen your willpower and increase your motivation to succeed in losing weight or improve your eating pattern and maintain this in the long term. A diet won’t change your attitude to food or a negative state of mind about how you feed your body. Under hypnosis the hidden cause of your bad eating habits can be identified.
Jonathan Conway at The Conway Practice can help you to focus on a much healthier and happier lifestyle, creating a positive and lasting change. If you would like to know more about how hypnotherapy and NLP can help you to get your eating habits under control or lose weight in Highgate, contact Jonathan at the Conway Practice or please leave a comment below.
The Conway Practice Can Help With A Fear Of Flying in Highgate
Have you missed out on a holiday this year due to being too nervous to travel? The Conway Practice provides help to overcome a fear of flying in Highgate, along with other travel fears. One of the most common phobias, a fear of flying or aerophobia, affects around one in ten of the population. It is often combined with other phobias, including a fear of heights (acrophobia), a fear of enclosed spaces (claustrophobia) and a fear of being away from a safe place, usually the home (agoraphobia).
It’s not surprising therefore, if someone finds themselves ‘trapped’ in an aeroplane for even a short flight with no means of escape or being able to retreat to a place of safety, panic can set in. The anxiety may even start with the anticipation of the journey, worrying about checking in at the terminal and what may happen during the flight. Often there is a fear of losing control and of being embarrassed in front of other passengers.
The media has a lot to answer for in being a catalyst to the fear of the aircraft crashing. You may have watched a film where the plane and the passengers were high-jacked or have seen graphic coverage of an air disaster in the news. No matter that statistics show air accidents are rare, the intense publicity may well remain vividly on your mind.
Your fear of flying could also have been linked to a stressful time in your life that coincided with a journey and you continue to subconsciously relate to those feelings or anxiety when you are travelling. The phobia often affects other forms of travel in situations where you have no personal control.
The same feeling of being unable to escape can occur on a train journey or even in a car when you are stuck in a traffic jam. You may be afraid of travelling alone or of losing your way, so you become extremely limited as to where you can go. Even daily commuting to work may become stressful.
Do you feel that your fear of flying or travel in general is severely restricting your life and separating you from visiting family and friends, or limiting your business opportunities? During hypnotherapy or NLP sessions in Highgate with Jonathan, the root of your anxiety can be identified, enabling you to fully understand and deal with your fears, allowing you to experience stress-free travel in a relaxed state of mind.

How Hypnosis Can Help You To Lose Weight In Brighton & Hove
The Conway Practice offers hypnotherapy sessions to help you lose weight in Brighton and Hove. You may have tried every diet you’ve come across in an attempt to reduce your weight, but have failed each time, or this may be your first endeavour and you are determined to succeed.
Being slimmer isn’t simply an aesthetic need, it also improves well-being and general health, with less strain on the heart and a greater ease of mobility. Trendy weight-loss plans and crash dieting aren’t the solution to maintaining an ideal size as when a diet fails you are likely to become depressed with the situation and may well put even more weight on, trapping you into a never ending circle of yo-yo dieting.
The key to weight loss is to change basics habits which may have been established as far back as childhood. Obesity has many contributing factors and under hypnosis, sub-conscious motivations and feelings can be identified, getting to the root of the problem. The way in which your parents or carers approached how they provided you with food can play a major part in how you now view your eating habits. They may have used food as a form of control or even as a punishment, with sweets or snacks being given as a treat if you had behaved to their rules and standards.
Now, when you’re feeling low or lacking in self-esteem and not achieving what you want in life, food may become something you turn to for comfort; a way of rewarding yourself.
No diet will help you to change a negative state of mind or your attitude to food. Through hypnotherapy sessions in Brighton & Hove with Jonathan, your motivation can be maximised enabling you to change any bad eating habits, allowing you to focus on a happy and much healthier lifestyle. If you would like to know more about how hypnotherapy can help you to lose weight in Brighton and Hove and to maintain that weight-loss, contact Jonathan at the Conway Practice or please leave a comment below.
How Hypnotherapy Can Help Reduce Anxiety For People In Brighton & Hove
Do you need help dealing with anxiety in Brighton & Hove? It would be unnatural not to feel anxious at times, but for some these feelings spiral out of control and have a crippling affect on every day life. Jonathan Conway offers hypnotherapy and NLP sessions, during which he will take time to understand your exact problem, identifying the underlying cause. He will show you how to overcome your fears and manage them in a positive way.
There are many reasons for anxiety conditions and they can be psychological, psychosomatic or emotional and may have been triggered by an experience during childhood, or by parental conditioning. The actual event or influence may not have seemed that significant at the time and could have remained dormant in the subconscious since then, only to surface now as a fear or anxious feeling that is difficult to control.
Trying to cope with the resulting stress can develop into a dependence for alcohol, medication or nicotine in an attempt to calm your nervous state. This dependence is likely to become a problem in itself, only adding to your anxiety when it becomes even more stressful when to try to give up the particular habit. Help is at hand for people in and around Brighton & Hove.
Phobic anxiety may restrict you from making the most of opportunities in your life such as career moves and promotions, due to a lack of self-confidence. You may find that even activities that would be considered as ‘normal’ are avoided due to your fears and affect how you approach public speaking, travelling, or social events. These deep-rooted anxieties or phobias need to be addressed and understood to enable you to release your fears and change the pattern of your behaviour and negative thinking that is preventing you from enjoying your life to the full.
Hypnosis services available in Brighton & Hove are completely safe and medication-free. Hypnotherapy is extremely effective in opening the subconscious, the source of your past experiences and stored emotions. You will remain in control and relaxed throughout the sessions, similar to a dream-like state of mind. Jonathan Conway, a qualified hypnotherapist, NLP Master Practitioner & NLP Coach with over 18 years’ experience, will monitor your progress closely and will show you how you can continue to release your anxiety in all situations wherever you are, allowing you to make a lasting positive difference in your life.

Help With A Fear of Blushing in Brighton & Hove
If you are seeking help to stop blushing in Brighton and Hove, The Conway Practice offers hypnotherapy sessions to allow you to be free of the problem. The fear of blushing (Elythrophobia) is a common but complex phobia and a blush is a physical response caused by anxiety. Unfortunately it is self-perpetuating; the more anxious you are about blushing the more likely you are increase the occasions when it occurs. When the brain focuses on the anxiety of blushing, the frequency increases considerably, creating a vicious circle.
It may help you to understand a little more about how this happens. When the ‘flight or fight’ response is triggered by your nervous system, adrenaline will flood through your body, resulting in physical symptoms. As well as increasing the heart rate, adrenaline (also know as epinephrine) may widen certain blood vessels. Blushing can then be a side affect when the facial veins become temporarily wider.
It is generally a symptom of a social anxiety disorder and may be a result of irrational fears buried in your subconscious for many years, perhaps even as far back as childhood. Much depends on how you view a situation and how you have been conditioned to react to fear. Each person’s trigger for blushing is likely to vary greatly.
Blushing in itself isn’t an automatic negative thought (ANT), but it becomes one if you hold on to the belief that everyone is judging you and thinking less of you because of it. You are likely to be self-conscious in unfamiliar social situations or of being put under the spotlight if you have to present to your superiors at work.
This can result in feelings of low confidence and self-esteem. As with any phobia it’s essential to understand where the problem stems from. It’s also important to accept that most people aren’t even aware that you are blushing until you draw attention to it and take it out of proportion by becoming upset.
Blushing and other symptoms of social anxiety, such as excessive sweating and panic attacks can be addressed with positive results through hypnotherapy and NLP sessions with Jonathan at the Conway Practice. You will learn how to control your fear and anxiety, changing the way you view the reasons why you blush and understanding how to retrain your subconscious to accept that it’s perfectly normal and that no one will think badly of you. By worrying about it less you will find that you will blush more infrequently, especially if you stop fighting to prevent yourself from blushing.

How The Conway Clinic Can Help To Stop Smoking in Brighton
As we approach the start of Stoptober, you may have decided that you need help to stop smoking in Brighton. Perhaps you’ve made several attempts to stop in the past without success, or this could be your first attempt at having a healthier nicotine-free life. Hypnotherapy sessions with Jonathan at the Conway Practice will help you to re-focus your conscious and subconscious mind, enabling you to change your attitude to smoking.
As nicotine is a powerful drug it is easy to become addicted but extremely difficult to quit. You feel good when the drug is in your system but feel wretched when it’s missing. Many people smoke because they are stressed and as giving up smoking is in itself stressful, they feel trapped in a vicious circle.
Often even those who have managed to stop smoking in Brighton start again during a period of anxiety. There are however, many reasons why people smoke. They may have started during their teenage years due to peer pressure, not wanting to appear the odd one out. Smoking has been something to share socially, although less so now that it’s no longer permitted to light a cigarette in pubs, restaurants and other public places.
Smokers are driven to outside areas in all weathers, which can add to the feeling of guilt about something that is now generally considered an antisocial habit.
It’s crucial not to consider a cigarette as a treat or a reward. The conscious mind knows that smoking is harmful and a damage to your health, but your self-belief is limited on a sub-conscious level, inhibiting your confidence in your ability to stop. Most smokers would agree if asked that they either want to give up for health reasons or because they are literally burning money.
Smoking is a habit and as with all habits there will be an underlying cause. Hypnotherapy has an extremely high level of success in dealing with the addiction as long as you are ready and willing to stop. Hypnosis in Brighton can’t force you to do anything that you don’t want to do. During hypnotherapy sessions, Jonathan will take the time to fully understand your lifestyle and identify the root cause of your habit. He will discuss how you can give up your dependence once and for all. Hypnosis is relaxing, safe and drug-free and will help you to change the way you view your addiction and increase your motivation, enabling you to stop smoking permanently.
If you would like to know more about how you can have help to stop smoking in Brighton and remain a non-smoker, please contact Jonathan at the Conway Practice or leave a comment below.
Help with Your Fear of Public Speaking in Harley Street
The Conway Practice can help with your fear of pubic speaking in Harley Street. You may be so nervous about speaking in public that it triggers a panic attack with an intense physical reaction. The mind is likely to go completely blank with what you have to say being forgotten. This feeling of panic will often be felt as shallow breathing and shaking with an increased heart beat, making the sufferer believe they are close to collapse.
Fears and phobias can often be traced back to an incident or a conditioned belief earlier in life. It’s therefore important now to identify the source of your fear. The root of the problem isn’t about whether you know the words of your speech or your part in a performance, it’s likely to be more about what you fear will happen when you start to speak and how your audience will react. You may feel that you were constantly ‘put down’ or judged by parents or siblings or by teachers in a classroom in front of your peers.
Your fear of public speaking may have a crippling affect on your professional life if you are required to talk at seminars or present to a board. It’s also likely to inhibit opportunities for promotion if you avoid interviews where you have to speak in front of a panel. Students often perform badly if they avoid classes where they are expected to read out loud or to stand up and present ideas. Self-consciousness when speaking with others can also make all forms of communication difficult, even asking for directions from a stranger. This may actually be a combination of phobias; a fear of public speaking (glossophobia) and a social anxiety phobia.
Almost certainly your fears are unfounded and whatever you’re frightened of won’t actually happen. Hypnosis can affectively help you to overcome your fears, increasing your confidence and reducing your self-consciousness. Hypnotherapy sessions with Jonathan at the Conway Practice in Harley Street are relaxing and completely safe, leaving you in control throughout. Visualisation techniques will use the power of your own imagination, enabling you to approach public speaking in a calm and confident state of mind.

Help with your Fear of Flying in Harley Street
If you need help with a fear of flying in Harley Street, The Conway Practice offers hypnotherapy services to effectively deal with the problem. This is one of the most common phobias and can affect people of all ages at any time in their life and is believed that as many as one in ten of the population may suffer from the condition.
Fear of flying (aerophobia), may in fact be a combination of phobias, including a fear of heights (acrophobia), a fear of enclosed spaces (claustrophobia) or a fear of being away from a place of safety (agoraphobia). These are typically classified as anxiety disorders and often cause severe panic attacks with distressing physical reactions. Even the anticipation of a journey can trigger the anxiety, with negative mental images of what may occur in the terminal or while travelling. Often a fear of losing control in front of other people with no means of escape is central to the problem.
A fear of being trapped (cleithrophobia) and claustrophobia are frequently linked and are not solely attributed to a fear of flying but can be present in various forms of travel when someone is not in control of the situation, such as a journey by train or even a car when another person is in the driving seat.
With air travel we are subjected to media coverage of high-jacking or terrorist attacks and while air crashes are rare, any incident is given intense publicity. This adds fuel to the existing fears despite safety statistics reporting that the chances of air disasters are minimal. A fear of flying or of travel in general can often be traced as far back as childhood. An upsetting incident, however trivial at the time, may have remained locked in your subconscious.
Perhaps you were particularly stressed at some point in the past which coincided with a journey so that when travelling you now recall that feeling of anxiety. If you feel that your phobia is limiting your life and restricting your chance to perhaps enjoy a foreign holiday or pursue a business opportunity, through NLP and hypnotherapy sessions with Jonathan at the Conway Practice in Harley Street, the source of your problem can be identified and eliminated, setting you free to travel with a relaxed state of mind and without stress.
If you would like to know more about how hypnotherapy can help you to manage your fear or flying and other travel phobias, please contact Jonathan at the Conway Practice or leave a comment below.
