Social Anxiety, also known as Social Phobia, is a disorder characterised by an overwhelming fear of social situations, where feelings of intense anxiety dominate during and at the thought of, social interactions.

When you suffer from Social Anxiety, your biggest underlying concern revolves around the fear of being negatively judged by others in social situations, and the potential humiliation that may be caused by others in front of them.

Social phobia can be experienced by people of all ages, with it commonly starting to present during the teenage years. For some people it does get better with age, but for many others it doesn’t get better without the intervention of treatment.

If you experience these you may have Social Anxiety

Do you become extremely self-conscious, even when you’re doing some of the most ordinary things? Does the
thought of an upcoming social event leave you feeling sick and worried? Have you thought about or overanalysed
a simple daily interaction after it has occurred? Maybe you avoid certain situations out of worry that you will be judged.
If you answered yes to any of these, then you may be suffering from social anxiety disorder.

While it can sometimes feel overwhelming and uncontrollable, social anxiety is a chronic mental health condition
that can be improved upon.
