A particular type of psychological therapy cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), has been shown to help treat social anxiety disorder. Often your doctor will recommend therapy first and then add medicine if needed. But your treatment plan will depend on what you and your doctor decide is best for you. Exposure Therapy You will be guided by a professional Clinical Psychologist to imagine you are facing the feared situation until you no longer fear it, such as talking in a small group and then addressing large group. Social skills training. This therapy helps you develop the skills you need in social situations through rehearsing and role-playing. Your anxiety is reduced as you become more comfortable with and prepared for the feared social situations. Cognitive restructuring This therapy helps you learn to identify and improve fearful thinking to help you better handle social situations. Symptom management skills This therapy teaches you how to reduce stress by controlling your breathing and other physical responses to anxiety. Along with the medicines therapy is must as it is a behavioural problem.

Dear Mr. lybrate-user, Psychotherapy is treatment of choice for social anxiety. You symptoms what you have mentioned appears more related to performance anxiety. Various type of anti-anxiety medicines are available today so it would be better if you could consult a psychiatrist to decide which medicine would suit you best.
Hello Mr. lybrate-user. Anxiety while interacting or performing in public is commonly seen nowadays and there is nothing to worry about it. Confidence may become low during that time but it can be controlled through homoeopathy. Homoeopathic medicines are quite effective in anxiety with positive results. You should consult a homoeopathic physician near you so that your complete case history is taken. It is essential to interact personally with the doctor. You can also consult us through audio or video call for further analysis of your case. Tc.
