Psychiatrist For Social Anxiety
We offer mental health services to help you relieve symptoms of social anxiety as well as cope with it long-term. Here’s a little bit of information on some of the most effective treatments we offer for social anxiety:
CBT – Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a common kind of therapy for social anxiety. CBT is used to challenge your negative thinking patterns in order to improve emotions and actions. We will essentially discuss in detail what you find distressing about a social situation and unpack ways of thinking differently about it. The realisation of seeing there are alternative thought processes can sometimes spark a more positive outlook.
Hypnotherapy – We also work with clients on hypnotherapy a lot which is another brilliant way to somewhat overcome your social anxiety. Hypnotherapy involves being guided into a calm and relaxing state of mind where you can become more open to suggestions and a therapist can help you explore the thinking behind your social anxiety.
ACT – Acceptance and commitment therapy, otherwise known as ACT encourages what is known as ‘psychological flexibility’, which means accepting your negative feelings towards a trigger as being valid. Your therapist can then support you in establishing specific goals to improve your approach to social situations and increase your self-confidence.
Exposure Therapy – This is where you’re taught how to deal with a certain situation to which you’re then actually exposed in real life. As you repeat this process, your outlook changes over time and you begin to understand that you can deal with social circumstances and they become less intimidating. This could be considered quite a forceful way of therapy however it can be highly effective in reaching your end goal.
