Social Anxiety

Social Anxiety

How would your life be different if you accomplish these goals?

  • Overcome fears about being judged
  • Let go of worries about blushing, trembling, or a shaky voice
  • Stop avoiding people or events due to negative expectations
  • Get over worrying about feeling embarrassed or humiliated
  • Give up anxiety about talking to strangers
  • Address low self-esteem and communication difficulties

Does This Sound Familiar?

Social anxiety or social phobia involves being afraid of social interactions. Such fear can interfere with your social goals, work objectives, or routine activities. Worrying about what others think of you can also lead to physiological effects including blushing, sweating, stuttering, or having a shaky voice. Social anxiety can also cause you to avoid situations with strangers or groups and prompt social isolation. Negative cognitions about others’ perceptions of you can undermine your self-esteem and ability to enjoy daily life.

Here Is How Coaching Can Help

Regardless of the cause of social anxiety, coaching can help you learn to feel more comfortable with other people. Many people feel shy at times around people they do not know well, but they often have strategies that help them cope. Coaching can help you become proficient with interpersonal communication so that you may feel more at ease with strangers, in groups, and when speaking in public.

I provide a combination of mindfulness coaching and communication skills practices to help you overcome social anxiety. My approach offers techniques that are easy to learn and can be applied right away.

Mindfulness coaching can help you learn how to relax prior to, during, and after social interactions, so you will experience more enjoyment in interpersonal situations. Mindfulness practices will also help you replace critical self-talk with more supportive thinking.

In addition, I can show you new communication skills to help you feel grounded, assertive, and socially competent. These communication techniques are designed to help you engage in social activities in a comfortable way.

Anxiety coaching will teach you how to challenge your negative thoughts and replace them with more supportive thinking. With practice, your thoughts start to turn themselves around. Finally, I will show you how replace stressful feelings and physical tension to become emotionally centered and physically calm in social interactions.

Background

As an anxiety specialist, I coach clients to help them overcome anxiety by online videoconferencing. I have been providing support for people with anxiety, panic attacks, and social anxiety since 2006. Before becoming a life coach, I provided individual counseling as a licensed therapist using the evidence based practices of mindfulness and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) both in person and through telehealth. I have found both in-person and online formats to be equally effective for helping individuals address anxiety and achieve their goals, and research verifies my personal experience. My preference for anxiety coaching stems from personal and professional experiences that overcoming anxiety can be most efficiently achieved without fixating on the past or adopting stigmatizing labels; instead, it can be more effective to embrace a presence-oriented approach that emphasizes practices to feel grounded in the here and now.
