Do I have Social Anxiety?

Social Anxiety is fear of social and/or performance situations where you are in contact with unfamiliar people, and it evokes anxiety symptoms. This is more than being shy; it can be debilitating and all consuming.

Together with symptoms of anxiety

  • dry mouth
  • mind going 'blank'
  • shaking and trembling
  • panic
  • palpitations
  • feeling sick
  • desperation to escape

people with social anxiety also have overwhelming thought processes

  • thoughts that people are talking about and laughing at you
  • thinking that people are criticising you
  • thoughts that you're not good enough
  • thinking that people will reject you
  • overthinking the situation afterwards
  • self criticism

If you can relate to these thoughts and symptoms in the context of social situations and you know that they're irrational - you may be experiencing social anxiety.

To good news is, you're not alone and there is something that you can do about; in fact, there are a few things you can do about it and one thing you may want to consider is my Social Anxiety Process Group; you can read more below and in the link.

On March 7th 2018, you can join me and 6 other group members in the Social Anxiety Process Group which runs every Wednesday night, 7 pm - 9 pm, for 6 weeks.

We will

  • explore your triggers
  • develop what you want to achieve
  • set achievable goals
  • hold eachother accountable
  • process your barriers/stuck places each week
  • validate your experiences

 I will

  • create a safe place and group for you to explore your anxiety
  • share my knowledge and experience
  • develop your understanding of your triggers and anxiety
  • teach you grounding techniques that can be used in the moment and in practice when alone
  • help you develop a toolkit using theory, activity sheets and group processes
  • provide options for you to sustain your achievements after the group ends

You can read more about the Social Anxiety Process Group here and you also learn what to expect in this video.
