Social Phobia

Social Phobia is an anxiety disorder. It is a fear of being around other people and what they may be thinking about you. Sadly, people who suffer from Social Phobia often become very isolated and find it difficult to carry on with their everyday lives, sometimes including going to work, if this is in an environment where there are many people.

Symptoms can include heart palpitations, dizziness, and nausea, amongst others, specifically when thinking about or being in a situation where there are other people. Unfortunately, Social Phobia can sometimes continue for many years before it is treated.

Twenty20 Psychology provides many therapies which are helpful in treating Social Phobia. Often it can be highly anxiety-provoking to meet with a Clinical Psychologist for the first time if you suffer from Social Phobia. If this is the case for you, feel free to bring a relative or close friend with you for the initial appointment. The Clinical Psychologist will do his or her utmost to ensure that you feel as comfortable as possible in your sessions.
