What is Social Anxiety?

Social anxiety, or social phobia as it is sometimes known, is the most common sort of phobia clients consult with at Positively Hypnotherapy Leigh on Sea. In fact, many clients consult for other problems, from weight loss through to sexual problems and other phobias, but are also suffering from social anxiety without even realising it.

Sufferer's of social anxiety are often very adept at portraying an image of self confidence, or putting on a front, so that even their closest friends of family may not be aware of their condition. The effects can be widespread, from causing relationship problems, through to creating difficulties at work. Getting through the day as a social phobic is without doubt exhausting. Sufferer's go to great lengths to avoid certain situations, such as meetings, presentations, meeting new people etc.

Sufferers' of social anxiety and social phobia often also have a feeling of being held back in life; but are unable to put their finger on what it is within themselves that is creating these feelings.

Social anxiety is really just a fear of being put on the spot, or judged. The range of symptoms a person can experience who is suffering from social phobia and social anxiety is extensive, and can include the following:

  1. Shyness, lack of self confidence

  2. Fear of being judged
