Counselling for Social Anxiety


First comes the feelings of chaotic and uncontrollable worry.

Then you find yourself struggling with nervousness, shaking and trouble speaking.

With the build up of anxiety over time you start to find yourself suffering with debilitating phobias.

As a result your anxiety begins to present itself as fear and a feeling of hopelessness.

While all the time your physiology is being affecting as you find yourself holding stress and tension in your body..

If this is you, I can help because I’ve been there myself and now I am free of my social anxieties.  If they present now, they present only as occasional small waves rather than overwhelming tsunamis.

Catherine Taylor (Accredited Counsellor)


Anxiety, Stress, Depression and Anger

Have you ever stopped to consider the link between these negative emotions?  Do you realise they are all connected?

When we feel anxious about a situation this increases our stress levels.  The constant battle with stress and anxiety can leave us feeling depressed as we continually feel like we are not leading our life to the standard we would like.  This depression can then lead us to act out with bouts of anger as a response to our frustration.

Working on our social anxiety can therefore have so many positive outcomes, as we begin to heal so we find all our emotions improve.   

As an a accredited qualified counsellor, I can help you to understand the underlying issues for your anxieties, change unhelpful thinking patterns and achieve your goals to free yourself from this debilitating condition.

Here is a quote from the National Counselling Society which explains what counselling is:

Counselling is a type of talking therapy that allows a person to talk about their feelings, needs and problems in a safe, structured, confidential setting. The foundation of effective counselling is providing clients with a professional therapeutic relationship based on non-judgmental respect and offering empathic understanding. Counsellors may employ a number of additional ways of working to further support their clients’ healing and development.
