Overcome The Fear of Having Your Picture Taken

Some people hate having their picture taken. Many would prefer to stay on the other side of the camera, being the one taking the pictures of everyone else. On the rare occasion someone else does get hold of a camera and snap a picture, the finished result usually ends up with a turned away face. The fear of having your picture taken is really quite common. There are millions of people that simply are not comfortable or have high levels of anxiety when someone tries to take their picture.

It might be just as hard to explain this fear of being photographed to yourself as it is explaining it to other people. After all, everyone’s doing it! It’s fun! It’s a great way to be remembered with your family and friends. What’s wrong with getting your picture taken at a family reunion? Don’t you want to be remembered as part of the family? But yet when that camera is staring right at you panic sets in! All you know is you don’t want any part of it and you want out of your situation immediately. Away from that camera. Also, what happens when you need that professional headshot? Standing there in front of a camera all by yourself, can be an even more daunting experience.

Maybe you’ve tried to come to terms with yourself and rationalize your feelings. Perhaps it’s because you always hate being photographed because you think you never look good in a picture. Maybe you feel that people will judge you on how your photograph turns out. Or even you just can’t stand the idea that you will have no control who will see your picture. Perhaps you have absolutely no idea why you don’t like your picture taken.

Does Hypnotherapy Help?

Yes! You can really be more comfortable and relaxed. You can break free from emotional barriers that have been holding you back from being photographed. Also, you can learn highly effective and enjoyable techniques that can enable you to be more at ease. Therefore, social occasions become more enjoyable and professional photos become less daunting.

If you have had enough of being uncomfortable having your picture taken and would like to be more relaxed, then why not consider hypnotherapy?

What Happens In A Hypnotherapy Session With Me?

Initially, I will be collating lots of information from you about the way you experience having your picture taken. By getting to know you helps me, to help you in the best way depending on your personality and challenges. I use a range of therapies within a typical session including Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Thought Field Therapy (TFT). These are both excellent at managing anxiety and increasing confidence. Also, off course, hypnosis is used. These therapies complement each other, when used together and can offer a very effective, positive outcome. I am very much guided by you and your needs during a session. I have no power over you nor can I magically make you different. However, by working together with you, I am confident in helping you achieve a positive outcome. I am passionate at empowering people to be the very best that they can be and to feel great about being You.

Dedicated to your wellbeing,
