What is Social Anxiety?

Social Anxiety

Social Anxiety is the overwhelming fear of social activities, such as meeting or interacting with people.

For some people, it starts in their teenage years, and may get better as they get older.

Other people may find that they need professional support to help deal with those thoughts and feelings.

That feeling of anxiety is created by the limbic system - a deep, primal part of the brain, which evolved millions of years ago to protect you.

The risks have changed a lot over that time, and sometimes the limbic system just needs some help to reconfigure those responses.

You can assess your level of anxiety with our online anxiety assessment tool.

If your anxiety was originally triggered by specific traumatic events, you may benefit from help with traumatic memories.

  3. Increase your levels of resilience, so you can deal with anxiety more easily.
  4. Reprogramme your subconscious response to anxiety triggers, so that the deeper parts of your brain can just decide to be calm.
