How can therapeutic hypnosis help overcome ereutophobia?

What is Ereutophobia?

Ereutophobia is a specific phobia characterized by an intense and persistent fear of blushing in public.

This fear can be triggered by a number of situations, such as :

  • Public speaking
  • Being introduced to a stranger, especially if there is a professional or emotional issue at stake
  • Competitive situations, such as exams or job interviews
  • Eating out
  • Going on a date…

The fear of blushing can be so intense that it leads to social avoidance, anxiety and even depression.
If this is your case, a mental health professional will be able to help you medically and psychologically.

Ereutophobia, a complex fear and a real vicious circle:

People who suffer from ereutophobia have a fear of blushing on 2 levels:

  • Fear of blushing as such, when in fact this is sometimes not the case.
    The person imagines in advance that he or she will blush, sometimes with the fear of losing self-control or having a panic attack.
  • And if they do blush, the fear arises that their blush will be noticed by others and that they will be judged negatively: as over-emotional, over-sensitive, shy or lacking in self-confidence.

This often creates a vicious circle of negative thoughts about certain situations, about ourselves, about the way we look and the supposed judgment of others, the fear of being ridiculed…

And the fear of blushing becomes an obsession that often leads to social withdrawal, constant self-control, a loss of self-confidence or even a feeling of shame.

Ironically, the person suffering from ereutophobia is often the only one to feel all this, while those around him or her are not even aware of what seems obvious.

Fear of blushing and shyness:

We often make the connection between shyness and the fear of blushing.
And indeed, people who are shy or self-conscious in certain social situations (job interviews, romantic encounters…) are more likely to give undue importance to other people’s gaze, to put themselves under stress, to blush and to fear a negative perception of them by others.

But this is not necessarily the case.
Sometimes the fear of blushing is combined with other fears, such as the fear of sweating or smelling bad, or the fear of having bad breath. In a way, it’s a broader fear of losing control of one’s body and being perceived in a negative social light.

Therapeutic Hypnosis for Ereutophobia:

Hypnosis is a technique designed to induce an altered state of consciousness in which the mind is more receptive to positive suggestions and beneficial changes.

In general, Therapeutic Hypnosis can help reduce anxiety and stress levels, promoting a state of calm and mental relaxation.

In addition, positive suggestions under hypnosis will boost self-confidence and self-esteem by replacing negative thoughts with positive affirmations and reinforcing beliefs in one’s own abilities.

Hypnosis can be used to treat ereutophobia, in particular for :

  • Reduce anxiety about certain situations that trigger the fear of blushing.
  • Modify negative thoughts about these situations and about oneself.
  • Develop coping and stress management strategies
  • Reinforce self-confidence and self-esteem

So you can reduce the importance of other people’s gaze, feel more at ease in public, develop a lighter, more pleasant social life…
And so create a virtuous circle in which blushing loses its importance for the person concerned, and becomes less frequent.

How does a Hypnosis session for the fear of blushing work?

A hypnosis session to manage ereutophobia begins with a discussion in which the hypnotherapist gathers information about the specific situations, triggers and symptoms of the person’s fear of blushing.
This is followed by a clarification of the person’s objectives.

Then, during the induction phase, the practitioner guides the person into a state of deep relaxation and altered consciousness, known as the hypnotic state.
During this state, positive suggestions and affirmations are used to reinforce positive beliefs and reduce negative thoughts linked to anxiety-provoking situations. Visualization and relaxation techniques are also used to help the person feel calmer and more confident.

Finally, the person returns to their normal state of consciousness and observes the changes in their daily life to refine any further work.
