Shy or Social Anxiety?

There's a difference between being shy and having social anxiety. Social anxiety involves worry about any social situation such as school, parties, work, and large family gatherings or performance situations like a speaking engagement. There's a worry of judgment from others in all of these situations.

Thoughts like those below are common:

"Did I make a weird face?"

"Did I stutter?"

"What if I trip?"

"What do they think of me?"

Avoidance of any of anxiety inducing situations is also common. There may be a belief about yourself that you're not enough.

We can help you reframe your thinking, improve your sense of self, and feel more confident in social situations.
