Overcome Your Social Anxiety with Online Therapy

Category: Social anxiety | Last updated: October 18th, 2018 | Reviewed and approved by:

Feeling shy or nervous about holding a speech or a presentation, are feelings that most of us have experienced in life. But if you constantly fear other people's attention, always feel watched or judged and feel afraid that you will embarrass yourself, then you might be suffering from social anxiety.

People with social anxiety often do everything they can to avoid the situations that make them anxious. Just the thought of a fearful social event can give physical symptoms like tightness in the chest, pounding of the heart, blushing and dizziness.

Social anxiety can have tremendously negative effects on your life, making you miss out on work opportunities and even relationships with friends and partners.

Our therapy for social anxiety is based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). With the help of CBT, you will learn to identify and challenge the automatic negative thoughts that underlie your fear of certain social situations. This might sound intimidating at first, but the key to your well-being is to stop avoiding the social situations that you find fearful. With the guidance of your therapist, you will gradually be exposed to these social situations. By doing so, you will learn how to deal with your fear and eventually you will be able to handle previously fearful situations without anxiety, allowing you to participate in your life, as you are supposed to do!

"I've learned so much about myself and how I have been seeing the work in a way that had been quite harmful to my own self-esteem. Being able to see the other side now has allowed me the chance to work towards the person I have always felt I was meant to be. I'm grateful for everything that I've learned from Maggie and for all of the help!"

"I've only been using this service for a few weeks, but I really like the format! I'm a busy university student, and having something that really works with my time and my energy levels is awesome. I also like being able to refer back to what I've written and what my therapist has said, as I find that sometimes the high emotional intensity of in-person therapy wipes my memory of what we talked about!"
