How to Overcome Fear of Asking for Help

Hypnosis can help you overcome your resistance to asking for help when you need it.

Asking for Help

Is asking for help difficult even though you need it?

Do you always try to manage every single thing in your life by yourself, even when others are happy to help?

Self-sufficiency and personal competence are very highly regarded in our competitive society. We all (apparently, at least) subscribe to the myth that ‘success' is something you make for yourself, and that you should be beholden to no one.

Many of us feel obliged to keep up a front, that shows the world that we're doing just fine, thank you, we don't need anyone's help - even when our life or health is falling apart.

Why not asking for help is actually bad for you

This assistance resistance does you no favors. In fact, it actually damages you in a number of ways. It creates a hidden barrier between you and people who would willingly help you out.

That means that they don't get to feel good about doing good. And that you don't get the benefit of whatever aid it was that they would have given you. That might not be the end of the world, of course, but it's an opportunity lost.

And when this happens over and over, it can gradually sour relationships. If people never get to help you, to do you a favor, the very basis of relationship - reciprocity - gets undermined.

The trouble is, not asking others for their help can, like any frequently repeated behavior (and repeatedly not doing something is just as much of a behavior as repeatedly doing something), become an ingrained habit.

Even when you wake up to the fact that it might be a good idea, at least sometimes, to turn to others for assistance, it feels so unnatural that it begins to seem like you can't do it.

How hypnosis can help you get better at asking for help

Fortunately, even deeply ingrained habits, and even those which have grown out of our (usually unreliable) ideas of how other people see us, can be modified with the help of hypnosis.

Asking for Help is an audio hypnosis session developed by psychologists with wide experience in helping people establish more beneficial behavior patterns. As you repeatedly relax and listen to this powerful download, you will notice that

  • you no longer feel stressed or anxious at the thought of asking for help
  • you become more open to the idea that it's okay for others to help you out sometimes
  • you gradually engage different kinds of help from different people without feeling that your capabilities are in doubt
  • relationships and friendships flourish
  • you feel equally happy managing by yourself and requesting assistance when appropriate
