Social Anxiety Group for Young Adults in Chesterfield, VA

What is social anxiety disorder?

Also called “social phobia”, social anxiety disorder is characterized by extreme fear or anxiety in social situations, or situations where a person is going to be observed by others. Some common examples include meeting new people, speaking in front of a group, eating or drinking in front of others, or having to “mingle” at parties. People with social anxiety often avoid these types of situations, even if they really want to participate, because they’re afraid their anxiety will show. Social anxiety goes beyond shyness or stage fright, and can get in the way of reaching goals and feeling satisfied with your life.

How can Thriveworks Chesterfield help?

A new group for young adults battling social anxiety led by Jessica Soule, LCSW . Group sessions involve interactive cognitive behavioral techniques designed to help your or a loved one learn to manage the worry felt in social situations.

Is social anxiety preventing you from getting the job, date, or life you want? Deeper than just introversion, social anxiety can be crippling and can leave you feeling “stuck” and unable to pursue your goals. You know you want to break out of your comfort zone, but haven’t had any luck doing it on your own….that’s not because you haven’t tried enough or because you can’t, it’s because you don’t have the right tools and support!

Do you try to avoid…

  • Eating in front of others?
  • Getting in people’s way?
  • Situations where people might look at you?
  • Meeting new people?
  • Standing up for yourself?

Do you worry about…

  • People judging or not liking you?
  • People thinking negative things about you?
  • Looking silly or foolish?
  • People noticing how anxious you feel?
