Blushing is the reddening of the face, ears, neck and often the upper part of the chest, followed by a feeling of heat and tingling.  It is an unconscious, physical reaction that is caused by certain situations, and is a perfectly normal bodily reaction. For many people blushing can cause discomfort and distress as they worry about when and where they may blush. The embarrassment of blushing can become so severe for those who are extremely anxious in social situations that the sufferer avoids social contact.  This is known as social anxiety.

Hypnotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapy can help control blushing by accessing your unconscious mind to discover the root cause of the problem and help you to learn how to deal with it in a calmer, more relaxed way. By reframing the negative thought processes, you can feel more comfortable in situations that would usually cause you blush.  Therapy can also help to increase self-confidence and self-esteem and reduce sensitivity to situations that trigger blushing.
