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!

Rating: [4 out of 5 stars!]

"Certainly useful - helps you rephrase things in your mind to obtain a better perspective. I have appreciated the role of the therapist in 'challenging' your problematic thinking and getting you to see where you have gone wrong in your cognition."

"These stars are based on how I'm feeling its affecting my life in a positive way, with these methods. Technically, you would have 5 stars because.. well... you're providing what you say you offer. I'm just wondering if online therapy will work or if I should look for in person. We shall see!"

"I have been using Online Therapy for just over a week and so far am very happy with the service and my therapist. She has been providing regular feedback and adjusting her recommendations based on my progress (or lack of). While I have been a bit slow to discover other aspects of the site (journal, yoga, meditation), this is something that I plan to start this week. I'm looking forward to my first chat tomorrow."
