SOCIAL ANXIETY & SOCIAL PHOBIA


  • Do you feel nervous if you are asked to give a presentation, go around in a circle and introduce yourself or speak up in front of a group?
  • Does being around an authority figure affect your confidence?
  • Do you become clumsy and overwhelmed if you have to perform a task in front of someone?
  • Do you sense that others are judging your every thought, comment and opinion when you speak, or watching your every move when you sit, stand or walk.

  Social Anxiety or Social Phobia is a source of huge anxiety to many people.  Many sufferers tell me that It is not understood as well as it might be by medical professionals and that treatment can be experienced as ineffective and often lengthy and expensive.

I offer specialist, effective therapy for Social Anxiety face to face, over the telephone or via Skype.  You can expect results from the very first session.

CHOOSING A SOCIAL PHOBIA COUNSELLOR

 
For those who are too far away from me to see me personally I do work with people over the telephone and online, and you will benefit greatly from this.  If you prefer to see someone face to face though, then I will shortly be providing information on specialists in your area.  Please feel free to e-mail me if you work in this area or if you want some advice on choosing a counsellor or therapist. 
 
Ensure firstly that you select someone with extensive experience of working with sufferers of Social Phobia or Anxiety.  Choose someone who has professional qualifications that require them to work with a code of ethics, and who has an understanding of a solution focussed therapy such as CBT, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or NLP, Neuro Linguistic Programming.  Ask the Counsellor if you can speak to any former clients of theirs, if they have been successful in changing the life of a person with social phobia, that person will be more than happy to talk about this and provide you with a reference.  Expect some positive results within the first few sessions.
