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!

"Well, online-therapy.com was able to help me identify the fact that I have been dealing with thought traps sixty-seven percent into the program. The two main thought traps are catastrophic thinking and extreme thinking. The sad thing is that the thinking is relevant to reality. This is why I documented everything. This is why I dialogue everything. This is why I do so via online GPS coordinates attached to smart devices, audio recordings, video surveillance, and research on those who have been wrapped up with derogatory records online.

I am not the same anymore because life is not the same anymore. This world we live in is not like the way I remember during my childhood innocence. It's changed drastically and I have experienced corruption. I experienced trauma and severe degrees of stress in the midst of the corruption. In matter of fact, I was scoring myself out with the Holmes and RaHe Social Readjustment Scale. I was scoring over 700 consistently for a prolonged period of time. Now isn't that alarming?!

Maybe this will all change by moving into the country. Maybe than I can focus on thinking about the birds and the bees in the pine trees. The many seas that this land divides and a garden to provide. Maybe than I will not have to worry about the mafia attempting to conquer and divide. Maybe I'll be able to focus on skinning a deer hide.

"I really like the format of this program, because I can do my therapy at home in the evenings. I was skeptical at first, but I was in a really bad place in life, and was desperate to try something. I have been in "talk-therapy" in the past with a psychologist or social worker, but this is really different.

The worksheets have been helpful in sorting out my thoughts, and figuring out how to actually make changes in my life, instead of just talking about it. My therapist, Maggie, has been very helpful by helping me realize that if I don't have a plan and take active steps to feel better, then things will just stay the same. Then, ultimately I will just continue down the same path and remain unhappy.

She challenges me by asking tough questions, which helps me see things from a different perspective. I feel encouraged that if I stick with the program, I can break my negative patterns, and live a more balanced life. I have hope that I can use my new skills to repair the damaged relationships in my life. I can learn to reach out to people.
