Am Ende des letzten Jahres suchte ich in Zürich nach Hypnose, die mir gegen meine Flugangst helfen könnte. So bin ich auf Jan Mion gestoßen. Seine herzliche und humorvolle Art machte jede Sitzung angenehm. Vielen Dank, Jan! Die Sitzungen sind tiefer gegangen, als ich es zuvor angenommen hatte, aber es war jede Minute wert, denn was wir gemacht haben, hat nicht nur die Flugangst weggemacht, sondern auch sonst in meinem Leben geholfen.

Ich entschied mich Hypnose zu nutzen um bessere Präsentationen halten zu können. Hypnotherapie war für mich Neuland und ich war zunächst unsicher, aber Jan machte es mir leicht mich zu entspannen und wohlzufühlen. Dank Jan konnte ich die tieferliegenden Ursachen meines Lampenfiebers entdecken und daran arbeiten. Bereits nach wenigen Sitzungen bemerkte ich eine deutliche Verbesserung meiner Auftrittsangst und gewann mehr Selbstvertrauen. Auch für andere Ziele kann ich Jan als Hypnose Coach wärmstens empfehlen.

I met Jan earlier this year in Vietnam at a conference. I found him to be a very intelligent and articulate person so when he mentioned he practiced hypnosis and was open to online sessions I thought I'd give it a go. I had no previous interest or desire to do hypnosis - when he asked what I wanted to work on I said I'm just here to have fun. In the past I've experimented with cognitive behavioural therapy, vipassana medication, the 12 step program and a bunch of self help books. One quote that stands out from meeting him is "it's never too late for a good childhood", not his original but a profound insight. Jan was able to build the trust you need for any inner work quite quickly. He asked if there was anything that may come up that is undesired and reminded me at any time we could stop the process. After not being able to meditate or quieten my mind for many years I was able to experience a trance like state within only 30 minutes of therapy. His narration and guidance were very effective in building up an understanding of the process especially using his unique personas of animals. He presented himself always as caring but fair. I reflect on the process as guided self alignment - it isn't an exercise in feeling sorry for yourself or having another person feel sorry for you but a celebration of the hardships you've endured through life and an opportunity to provide yourself the support you need to continue moving on with life. After 2 sessions I feel more empowered to take on the inevitable challenges in life and if needed I now have an advisor to realign me. Thanks for your guidance Jan!

After every session with Jan I had a smile on my face and this very special kind of energy. He helped me level up my business and many other things in my life that I thought hypnosis could not help with. I recommend Jan wholeheartedly offline and online.

When I read that Jan Mion only works online I was not sure what to expect but I can let you know: It works really well. Online Hypnosis has helped me overcome my fear of flying and now I have flown twice while being almost completely calm.

Meinen Höhenschwindel mit Hypnose zu behandeln, fand ich eine gute Idee, als ich von dieser Methode hörte. So habe ich im Internet nach Hypnosetherapeuten:innen gesucht und Jan Mion gefunden. Seine Seite sprach mich an und so buchte ich einen Termin. Er bot «nur» Onlinetermine an und ich dachte für ein erstes Kennenlernen ist das ganz praktisch. Die Hypnose funktionierte mit Audio und Video sehr gut. In der ersten Sitzung wurde mir klar, dass es hier nicht nur um Höhenschwindel ging, sondern um viel grundlegendere Themen. Nach drei Sitzungen war meine Höhenangst schon bedeutend besser. Ich kann diese Therapieform zu unterschiedlichen Anliegen und Jan Mion allen wärmstens empfehlen.

I contacted Jan because I had some issues initially with pain. Together we discovered that this pain was somehow linked to hidden fear, anxiety and some anger. We worked effectively for few sessions with amazing results that I was never able to achieve before. I went to other therapies in the past that waisted my money and time, and resiliency. However, the sessions with Jan were really effective. From the first session Jan works with the purpose of healing people. Once again, thank you Jan for all your help.

Online Hypnosetherapie bei Jan Mion. Die Online Sitzungen haben mir die Zeit gegeben, diese überhaupt wahrzunehmen. Ich konnte mich in meiner Umgebung auf die Hypnose vorbereiten, ohne weiteren Stress oder Aufwand. Er war immer sehr einfühlend und hat mir bei meiner Höhenangst sehr geholfen. Ein herzliches Dankeschön nochmals für die Professionellen Sitzungen. Danke

The transition from shyness to social phobia can be smooth. It can occur when speaking in public, eating, or simply being around a certain number of people. Often the fear is also related to the belief of knowing what others think about you.

You don't have to be the most extroverted people pleaser. However, if the avoidance behavior becomes stronger and stronger or the restrictions too great, it goes rather in the direction of sociophobia or social anxiety disorder. The earlier one takes influence on the problem, the faster it can often be solved.

Treatment of social anxiety with hypnosis can bring very big changes. The nature of the problem makes hypnotherapy a great help for social phobia. The unconscious causes can be directly addressed in the hypnotic trance.

Social phobia from a hypnotic point of view

In the history of mankind, people were always dependent on other people. So if others have determined to a certain extent about the own extinction, it was meaningful to be interested in what others think of you and whether the opinion of "the others" about you is positive or negative. The human unconsciousness has also developed in this way.

However, when these "others" become a multi-headed monster to be afraid of, something has gone wrong.

Inside and outside

A large part of hypnosis is the relationship between inside and outside. How we react internally to something external can hardly be changed without hypnosis, because this lies in the sphere of influence of the unconscious. The conscious mind can try as hard as it likes, if the unconscious mind does not play along, usually only a short-term change is possible, if at all.

Conversely, our behavior towards the outside is determined by our inside. A person who feels anxious or insecure is more likely to avoid upsetting situations than a person who feels comfortable and strong. If we evaluate ourselves as good on the inside, we expect the same from others and vice versa.

The focus and allocation of importance to the inside and the outside also has an influence. If we want to get rid of a social phobia, we must inevitably give less attention or importance to the outside.

The unconscious assessment of the self is of course very important in self-worth and self-confidence and also makes dealing with anxiety easier.

Causes of social anxiety

There can be many triggers for social anxiety disorder. In life, we automatically and unconsciously learn something about ourselves. Be it from parents in childhood or social situations: somewhere affected people have learned that social situations are threatening for them. The unconscious then reacts to this threat with fear, trembling, sweating, freezing, blushing and much more.

In order for us to overcome social phobia, we often have to forget what we have learned about ourselves.

Hypnotherapy against social phobia

Social phobia therapy with hypnosis can include many different aspects. For example, symptom management issues, such as alcohol or medication use, often need to be included in treatment. Many people with social anxiety disorder also experience themselves as unable to relate in some way or do not know how to relate to others. Part of hypnotherapy is often also building instinctual unconscious social skills. So, so to speak, the practical part to all the theoretical advice you can read everywhere.

Can social phobia be cured with hypnotherapy?

The answer to this question I can say from social phobia therapy experience: Yes, it's quite possible. I have often experienced almost miraculous transformations when we were able to hypnotically release and forget the old.

Social anxiety is absolutely curable, but it often takes longer than certain sufferers hope for in hypnotherapy. Due to the interconnectedness with sometimes very many experiences of even traumatic nature, it usually takes several sessions.

If the seclusion has also caused depression, for example, we must of course treat that as well.

Hypnosis for social anxiety

Hypnosis brings many tools for change. For example, we can weaken or even dissolve and replace the old negative experiences and memories. Directing the focus is also an important part of hypnosis.

By working in the unconscious mind, we can address the blockages and fears more directly than with many other methods. We do not so much want to fight the social anxiety as to bring the unconscious, positive intentions behind it into a more effective form. In this way, we can use the energy that was previously wasted on negative thoughts for positive development.


Hypnosis can also help with speech anxiety or fear of commitment with the effect in the unconscious. Furthermore, hypnosis can help to reduce the negative self-image that has led to the fears in social situations.

So with hypnosis it can become possible to overcome even a strong social anxiety and to build up and use the resources it takes to stay free of anxiety and calm in social situations.
