Rediscover Confidence: Transformative Social Anxiety Treatments in Melbourne

Struggling with Social Anxiety? Discover the Path to Self Confidence

Social anxiety is a common condition that affects people’s ability to interact comfortably in social settings and can become debilitating and incredibly isolating at times. At Fortitude Wellbeing, we understand this and provide comprehensive support and counselling for individuals who suffer from social anxiety at our Melbourne clinic.
If social anxiety is impacting you or a loved one, contact our friendly team, and we’ll help support you on your path to overcoming social anxiety.

What is Social Anxiety?

Social anxiety is characterised by an intense fear or anxiety in social situations. It involves a persistent worry about being judged, criticised, or embarrassed by others. This fear of social situations often prompts individuals to avoid social situations or become closed off and anxious when participating in settings where the people or space are unknown.

It’s important to note that experiencing occasional shyness or nervousness in social situations is normal. However, when these feelings become excessive and interfere significantly with daily life, it may be an indication of social anxiety. Excessive avoidance of social situations as a result of social anxiety can become debilitating and isolating and should not go without meaningful treatment.

At Fortitude Wellbeing, we provide comprehensive social anxiety therapy in our Melbourne clinic, in an environment that is open and welcoming so our clients feel comfortable to share their experiences. In doing so, we aim to help individuals overcome their social anxiety and regain control over their lives.

What Social Anxiety Looks Like

Social anxiety often goes unrecognised by many individuals, leading to surprising diagnoses. It is not uncommon for individuals to attribute their challenges to introversion or shyness when in fact, they may be experiencing symptoms of social anxiety disorder.

Here are a few signs that should point you toward a social anxiety psychologist in Melbourne.

  • You behave differently in social situations
  • You find you can't relax around other people
  • You have difficulty speaking in a group setting
  • You experience anxiety or panic during social situations
  • You have difficulty carrying or initiating conversations
  • You make excuses to leave early in social settings
  • You avoid conversations with unfamiliar people
  • You avoid one on one conversations
  • You don’t like being the centre of attention
  • You pre-plan social events to avoid anxiety in unknown situations
Whilst, experiencing a few of the above may not be wholly indicative of social anxiety, if you or someone you love is experiencing these symptoms and it is seriously impacting their daily life, it is essential to seek help in order to gain a proper diagnosis and treatment from experienced professionals.
