I am not in this world to live up to other people’s expectations,nor do I feel that the world must live up to mine. – Fritz Perls

Social Anxiety Disorder

Social Anxiety Disorder, Social Phobia, Performance Anxiety

While it is normal to have some anxiety before giving a speech in public or having an important business meeting, most people manage to get through the situation without being incapacitated by panic or fear.

People who have Social Anxiety Disorder and Performance Anxiety experience a persistent fear of being exposed to the possible scrutiny and negative judgment of others, a fear of doing something or acting in a way that is embarrassing to them. This anxiety is so strong that they avoid such situations, become frozen with fear or experience physical symptoms.

If you find yourself experience such anxiety in social or performance situations, and this is having a negative impact on you and your life, please contact me for a consultation.
