Social Anxiety

Transforming Emotions

Do you fear others are judging you? Do you walk through the world trying to manage your body, your expressions, your actions, your breathing for fear of being noticed, humiliated, or rejected by others? Do you simply feel 'not good enough' in the eyes of yourself and others? Are you tired of working so hard to cope with your anxiety without ever truly feeling better? If so, you may be suffering from social anxiety and likely from the loneliness that comes from living behind the mask that others are allowed to see. At Transforming Emotions, we use integrative therapy techniques from a foundation of emotion focused therapy to help you get to the root of your social anxiety. We aim to identify and heal the underlying experiences of fear and shame that tend to underpin the experience of social anxiety and negative self-judgment.

Registered Psychotherapist, Joshua Dvorkin, MPsy, Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying),
As a psychotherapist I can employ various techniques and approaches to help someone with social anxiety disorder. Here are some common methods: 1. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT): This approach focuses on identifying and challenging negative thoughts and beliefs related to social situations. By examining and restructuring these thoughts, individuals can develop more realistic and positive thinking patterns. 2. Exposure Therapy: This technique involves gradually exposing individuals to social situations that provoke anxiety. The therapist helps create a supportive and safe environment for the person to face their fears and develop coping strategies. Over time, repeated exposure can help desensitize the person to anxiety-provoking situations. 3. Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR): Mindfulness techniques, such as meditation and breathing exercises, can help individuals become more aware of their thoughts and bodily sensations. By practicing mindfulness, individuals can learn to manage their anxiety symptoms and increase their tolerance for discomfort in social situations. 4. Social Skills Training: This involves teaching individuals specific social skills, such as effective communication, assertiveness, and conflict resolution. By practicing these skills in therapy sessions and real-life situations, individuals can improve their confidence and ability to interact with others. 5. Supportive Therapy: Providing a safe and non-judgmental space for individuals to express their feelings and fears can be essential. The therapist can offer emotional support, validation, and guidance throughout the therapeutic process. 6. Medication: In some cases, medication may be prescribed alongside therapy to help manage the symptoms of social anxiety disorder. Psychotherapists may work collaboratively with psychiatrists or other medical professionals to determine the need for medication. It's important to note that the specific approach used may vary depending on the therapist's training, the severity of the individual's symptoms, and their preferences. A psychotherapist will typically tailor the treatment plan to the unique needs and goals of each person with social anxiety disorder.
