Therapy for Social Anxiety and Shyness

Social anxiety stems from the belief that people are going to judge or reject you. If you experienced judgement, criticism, blame, or felt dismissed as a kid, it makes sense that you expect to be judged or rejected now. You might have a harsh inner critic who points out every flaw before anyone else gets a chance. This inner critic thinks it's preparing you, but really it's undermining your confidence.

I teach clients to give themselves the security they needed in childhood. When you feel secure from within and accept yourself unconditionally, other people tend to follow suit.
