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!

"Online-Therapy was simple to sign up with and I was matched with a therapist quickly. Unfortunately that therapist and I, did not work well together. Thankfully customer support was able to match me with another therapist quickly and efficiently. Since then I have been working threw the lessons and unpacking a lot of boxed up emotions. Online-Therapy has help me regain control of my life."

"Bernadette has been absolutely a joy to work with on the live sessions. She keeps it real, which is exactly what I need. Her kindness and empathy shines through my screen, even at 8000 miles away. Plus, there is the added bonus that our time zone difference works out really well for my schedule. Thank you Bernadette, and thank you to all of the folks at online-therapy for making this possible."
