Counselling for Social Anxiety

Social anxiety is an intense nervousness and self-consciousness that comes from a fear of being closely watched, judged, and criticized by others.  Very often the sufferer avoids social interactions to avoid the huge personal discomfort they bring.

I fully understand the traumatic depth of this disorder - the fear of conversation; the fear of having nothing to talk about; the fear that you'll say or have said something wrong; the fear of disapproval; the fear of rejection; the fear of judgement; the fear of letting your real self be known.  I'm also aware of the continuous hiding deep inside you of all of this fear because of your inherent shame. This is a particular area of interest for me as it is something I have struggled with in the past – but from which I am now, thankfully, in recovery.

My focus is to help clients understand the origins of their negative self-belief and to become aware of the negative self-talk that is crippling them.  By working with me to change their inner dialogue, and how they see themselves, clients become able to present their ‘true self’ to the world.  

I work with clients to help them experience the empowerment, freedom and joy of this self-acceptance. 
You can experience this too!
