Social Anxiety

Effective help for Social-Anxiety/Social-phobia/Social-Anxiety-Disorder

Social-anxiety /social-phobia/ social-anxiety-disorder is a fear of being judged by others. People with social anxiety-worry about what others think of them, whether they will be put on the spot, humiliated, embarrassed or rejected in public. It can start in teenage years, sometimes earlier, or after a stressful or difficult social event.


"I’m much more confident generally. By completing the programme with Michelle and simply learning to complete a few small written exercises every day,
I have and will continue to smash my social anxiety to smithereens. Thanks to Michelle and the Thrive Programme, I am feeling really confident in my ability to enjoy life, by feeling confident in the knowledge,
that if I do start to feel any of my symptoms, then I can easily deal with them quickly and effectively and
get on with my day."

JC from Edinburgh


Symptoms of Social Anxiety:

  • A fear of speaking with others.
  • Avoiding social situations.
  • Blushing
  • Stuttering and stammering.
  • Sexual problems and a fear of intimacy.
  • Difficulty using the toilet in public.
  • Difficulty in maintaining eye contact.
  • Feeling self-conscious, and that everyone is watching you closely.
  • Panic attacks.
  • Excessive sweating.
  • Fear of public speaking.
  • A fear of talking on the telephone.
  • A fear of eating in-front of others.
  • A preoccupation with your appearance. Not in a vain context, but in order to blend in.

Social anxiety is linked to self-esteem and the beliefs YOU hold about yourself in social situations. You believe that YOU will be unable to cope emotionally in certain social situations, make a fool of yourself and then be judged harshly for your actions. This can leave you feeling powerless.


"Going through the Thrive programme with Michelle changed my life and I believe it can change anyone’s.
It is money very well spent!
Thanks again Michelle.
