What is Social Anxiety Disorder (Social Phobia)?

Social anxiety is more than just shyness. It's an intense fear of judgment, embarrassment, or scrutiny in social situations. This anxiety can impact everyday interactions in professional and personal settings and impact the quality of life.

Social phobia symptoms

Someone who experiences social anxiety might find even casual interactions turn into an obstacle course. Imagine this: you're at a party, and a knot of anxiety tightens in your stomach as you consider joining a conversation. The fear of being judged or humiliated washes over you. Your face might flush red, palms grow clammy, and nausea creeps in. All because your mind is convinced you'll say something silly or make a fool of yourself. This constant worry about messing up fuels a negative self-consciousness. To escape the potential discomfort, you might find yourself retreating from social situations altogether. This avoidance, while understandable, can create a barrier to building connections with others and can make it difficult to navigate everyday life.

What is Public Speaking Anxiety?

Public speaking anxiety, also known as stage fright, is the fear of speaking or performing in front of an audience. This anxiety can range from mild nervousness to severe distress, impacting an individual's ability to convey their thoughts effectively.

Common Signs of Public Speaking Anxiety

Many people get sweaty palms and jittery knees at the thought of giving a speech. This fear of public speaking is quite common, and it can show itself in different ways. Your body might go into overdrive with a racing heart and shortness of breath. You might also worry a lot about being judged or messing up. This anxiety can even make you want to skip presentations altogether, or leave you feeling stuck speaking in a flat tone while pacing nervously.
