What is social anxiety and why is it so debilitating?

Social anxiety is an acute anxiety reaction to any social situations – parties, small gatherings, workshops or other casual or formal events where people get together to enjoy themselves or share a common bond.  When someone suffers from social anxiety, they start to sweat just thinking about one of these gatherings.  Basically, they have an anxiety attack (that can mimic feelings of a heart attack) in response to being in a social setting.  Social anxiety is incredibly limiting to one’s life.  If you can’t go to parties, feel safe working in an office with many employees, gather for your book group, or even go see a movie, then your life gets smaller and smaller.

HOW TO COLLAPSE SOCIAL ANXIETY WITH EFT 

When collapsing social anxiety with EFT, you need to address the present, the past and the future.

THE PRESENT

There are two ways to address social anxiety in the present.  First, just use EFT on what feels like “generalized anxiety” in yourself or client.  People with intense social anxiety don’t tend to be terribly relaxed in general, even if they are not in a social setting.  So use the basics of EFT on the physical and emotional feelings of anxiety in the present tense.

Secondly, imagine being in a situation (right now) where there are more than 20 people gathering to talk, socialize, and have a good time together.  Pretend you are there in the moment … Measure how high the anxiety is in your body right now, even though you aren’t in that situation yet.
