What is social anxiety / social phobia?

Social anxiety / social phobia is the fear of embarrassing, or humiliating ‘on the spot’ type situations (in public) otherwise known as social anxiety, social anxiety disorder, a fear of being judged.

Social anxiety / social phobia is the 4th most common phobia there is and the most common I am asked for help with. It’s the pervasive fear of any situation where the person is likely to feel ‘on the spot’, embarrassed, humiliated or judged. For example, dinner parties, public speaking, interviews, appearing in court, singing, stuttering etc. Associated symptoms are; over-sensitivity to criticism, negative self-image, fear of rejection, fear of failure, difficulty in being assertive, and general feelings of inferiority.

On a more general level, the social phobic will worry continuously about how others ‘see’ them and what others might be thinking about them. It’s not surprising then that the sufferer will often spend a lot of time creating the image they want others to see. They can become quite adept at concealing their anxiety from others, but often difficulty in maintaining normal eye contact is a give away.

Some symptoms that may appear alongside (or be caused by) social phobia or social anxiety are…..

A fear of public speaking

A fear of talking on the telephone

A fear of writing in front of someone (even signing a cheque!)

Blushing or a fear of blushing

Stuttering or stammering

A lack of confidence

Working too hard (to please others)

Setting un-achievable high standards and feeling bad when they are not met (perfectionist thinking)

A preoccupation with how you look: ‘perfecting’ an image you want others to see (this is NOT vanity – this is about trying to ‘blend in’)

Certain twitches or ‘tics’

Shy bladder (men especially) not being able to pee, when on the spot or in public toilets

Certain sexual inhibitions – due to ‘performance anxiety’

Repeated failure of driving test etc – due to ‘performance anxiety’

A persistent fear of failure or ‘not making the grade’

Basically, any situation in life where you might feel embarrassed, on the spot, judged, silly, out of control etc.
