Starting Social anxiety counseling

What is Social anxiety counseling?

Social anxiety counseling helps people better understand and manage the anxiety they experience in or because of social interactions. If you are struggling with regular anxious thoughts and feelings as a result of social interactions or settings and they’re affecting your day-to-day life, you should seek social anxiety counseling with one of our trained Thriveworks Conway therapists. The social anxiety therapists at Thriveworks can develop a treatment plan that will help you better manage your day-to-day social anxiety or your social anxiety disorder.

How does Social anxiety counseling work?

Social anxiety counseling involves talking to a therapist about your social anxiety symptoms, potential causes, and more. Your therapist will then work with you to determine where your social anxiety might stem from and teach you effective coping mechanisms.

Is Social anxiety counseling conducted in person or online?

Thriveworks social anxiety counseling in Conway, AR is conducted both in person and through online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Social anxiety counseling last?

Social anxiety counseling can last for a few weeks, months, or longer, depending on the severity of one’s social anxiety as well as their needs and preferences.

Need more help deciding?

It was a single and simple question that burst into a thousand more: “Want to hang out tonight?!”

Categorized as an anxiety disorder, social anxiety (also known as social phobia) affects millions of Americans each year. Socially anxious people question themselves much more than someone with the disorder.

A simple question such as “Want to hang out?” can lead to a slippery slope in your mind that has an unlimited supply of questions and excuses not to be interactive with others:

  • Do you really think this is a good idea?
  • It’s always good to get out of your comfort zone, right?
  • What if someone you don’t know expects a conversation, but you don’t know how to react?
  • Even worse, what if it’s someone you do know?
  • I have a feeling, they don’t really like me.

Some symptoms of social phobia can be very mild such as avoidance of social situations to severe physical symptoms of anxiety including confusion, sweating and shaking in social situations.

The invitation may be a great thing in order to get out of the house and away from the TV or computer, but the fear and worry of looking out of place or being judged in a social setting can hold you back.

You are now facing a major daily fear. In the midst of the frustration of trying to derive yet another excuse for not attending, productive work seems to be put aside by personal matters that require more time now due to the nature of your anxiety.

With the help of Thriveworks Conway, you will receive the tools, motivation, and education to succeed in facing this phobia head-on and eliminate the fear and worry associated with social anxiety disorder.

Thriveworks’ certified counselors guide you through the stages necessary to regain and take control of your freedom to enjoy the rest of your life meeting new people, experiencing deeper connection with others and enjoying the presence of friends and family.

Each session is tailor-made to fit the individual needs and concerns which makes success a reality so don’t hesitate and keep slipping; let’s climb out of the slippery slope together.

Call Thriveworks Conway social anxiety counseling today at 501-404-9737.

My depression and anxiety were taken over my life and I knew I had to make a change. Just like everyone else I thought I didn't need counseling. After my first session with Kristen G., I knew God had placed me with a compassionate, and caring therapist. Without a doubt I would recommend Thriveworks and their team of professionals
