Psychological Therapy for Blushing Problems – Erythrophobia

Blushing which is also known as Erythrophobia, is the involuntary reddening of the face, usually (but not always) triggered by an emotional experience such as embarrassment or stress and invariably occurs when you ‘need it least’!

blushing problems, also know as erythrophobia - woman blushing and covering mouth

More often than not, other areas of the body – such as the neck, ears and upper chest – can also be affected.

As well as causing redness, it can also make the affected area actually feel hot – often described as feeling “flush.”

Although this is a normal reaction to certain situations, most people feel very self-conscious when they Blush and would like to be able to stop those “inappropriate” blushes.

What Causes Blushing?

“Normal” you blush when a strong emotional trigger stimulates the nervous system to widen the blood vessels in the face, technically known as “vaso-dilation.”

This increases the flow of blood into the blood vessels just underneath the skin, causing your face to turn red.

It can be triggered by both Psychological as well as Physical causes, such as:

  • Social Anxiety Disorder (social phobia) – the fear of social situations and being around people (psychological)
  • Rosacea – a skin condition that mainly affects the face (physiological)
  • Female Menopause (physiological)
  • Some medications – for example Tamoxifen used in breast cancer treatment (physiological)
  • It can also be triggered by alcohol consumption, hot drinks, eating hot or spicy food and strenuous exercise.

We recommend that you always consult your GP prior to contacting us in order to rule out any of the physiological causes listed above.

Do I Need Therapy for Blushing?

Most people will blush from time to time, and it’s not usually a cause for concern.

However, if you blush frequently it can have a significant negative impact and can lead to the person avoiding certain situations and interacting with other people.

If it has become a problem then consider making an appointment to come along for one of our FREE initial Assessments where we can discuss the types of therapy available.

If you’re committed to overcoming your blushing problem then we highly recommend following either our Advanced Cognitive Behavioural Therapy course with Paul, or the Changing Limiting Beliefs (CLB) Programme with Joan.

Both the CBT course and Changing Limiting Beliefs approach are highly successful & pragmatic psychological training programmes, run over 10 sessions, that will teach you everything you need to know to understand your problem, identify how unhelpful thinking and limiting beliefs might be reinforcing the issue, and then show you how to make any changes to your unhelpful thinking styles or maladaptive safety behaviours that you may have developed as part of your coping strategies.

Our CBT programme is an evidence-based, research supported approach used by mental healt practitioners around the World.

We offer all prospective clients a FREE initial assessment to chat about your blushing problems or your personal development. During this 50 minute consultation we will discuss the various options that are available to you and make a considered recommendation based on your individual personal circumstances.

Our policy is to help people make a fully balanced & considered decision about undertaking therapy with us, including both the financial and personal implications.
