What is Social Phobia?

The most common social phobia is fear of public speakingSocial Phobia or Social Anxiety is one of the most common phobias where the sufferer feels anxious in social situations which may put them “on the spot” or in a position where they could be judged. For example you may feel anxious when going to a dinner party, speaking at a conference or meeting a large group of people. You may be worried you will embarrass or humiliate yourself and you generally worry what other people think of you. You may lack confidence, you may blush, you may have a negative self image or have difficulty in being assertive.
