Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) also known as social phobia is one of the most common anxiety disorders. While approximately 12% of the population have social anxiety disorder, a whopping 7 out of 10 of us have some degree of social anxiety. It is recognised by an intense fear of one or more social situations causing considerable distress and impacting on daily life.

Although many people worry about social situations and approval by others, individuals with social anxiety disorder will spend considerable time worrying prior to, during and following a social situation. Some common fears of social anxiety are the fear of appearing incompetent, embarrassed, blushing, shaking and sweating. There are several physical anxiety symptoms that can appear, and some people go on to experience panic attacks. Positive Mind Works offers social anxiety counselling using CBT and a range of other online counselling services.
