Join me on a journey of exploration into social anxiety. 
Your social anxiety is unique to you. 
Your reactions, thoughts and feelings 
all stem from your individual experience of the world and the relationships you have in it. To gain a better understanding of your self, your place within a group and your connection to others, we will be holding a 12 week therapy group to investigate and explore themes that are pertinent to people experiencing social anxiety. Content will include discussions and experiential exercises: What is social anxiety? How do we experience our anxiety in our thoughts, feelings and body? Who are we in a group? 
What impact do we have on others? 
Together we will explore areas such as; assertiveness, personal boundaries, creative expression, movement, shame, self judgement, 
self Love & mindfulness.

Testimonials from participants in our last therapy group

"I met other people who had the same problem I had. I had the opportunity to make some connections I would not normally have made. I listened to other peoples backgrounds and stories that let me know I was not alone in my suffering."

"It allowed time to reflect, be guided as well as challenged and consider with others in doing so. Just thinking on this, that’s kind of a rare thing..."
