Online Treatment for Social Anxiety Disorder

Online Treatment for Social Anxiety Disorder


Welcome. My name is Peter Strong. I’m a professional online therapist specializing
in mindfulness therapy and I offer online treatment for social anxiety disorder. So during the online therapy sessions, what
I’ll be teaching you is how to work with those anxiety reactions that you experience in the
presence of other people or situations where you feel that people are looking at you or
that you’re on the spot. We need to find a way of breaking free from
the process of what is called Emotional Contraction that happens when these habitual anxiety reactions
are triggered in the mind, and best way to do that is to actually meditate on the situation
that triggered that social anxiety. So during this very focused meditation we
try to identify the triggers and we identify the emotional reactions. We then develop mindfulness around the emotional
reactions. So in effect isolating them and preventing
them igniting further reactivity that intensifies the social anxiety. We learn to change our relationship to these
emotions and help to resolve the emotions by developing our conscious relationship with
them and developing compassion towards them. So this is quite easy to do. It takes a bit of learning and a bit of guidance,
but basically the rule is that the more you can identify those emotional reactions the
better, and the more that you can develop friendliness towards those emotions the better,
and the more that you’re able to stay conscious with those emotions without reacting further
the better it will be. This is what creates the right internal conditions
that will lead to the healing and resolution of that social anxiety. It’s similar in many ways to exposure therapy,
which is highly recommended for social anxiety, but we’re doing this in our minds. We’re running through the situation in our
minds, finding the emotional reaction and then changing our relationship to it so that
we don’t get caught up blindly in that emotional reaction. We learn instead to develop a friendly and
compassionate relationship to that part of us that is scared, and this is what is essential
for the part of us to heal and to change. So this is what I’ll be teaching you during
our online therapy sessions. I will teach you how to work with your social
anxiety and how to overcome those patterns of automatic, blind emotional reactivity that
feeds the anxiety. If you’d like to learn more about the mindfulness
