Becoming Skilled at Helping those with Anxiety

“Oh just get over it”!  Sound familiar?  Here are some useful tips to help someone you care about who is dealing with social anxiety.  As simple as they might sound, these tips are difficult to implement.  We often lack patience, empathy and the ability to hear what people are truly saying when they are experiencing anxiety. It doesn’t help that so many of us feel clumsy, ashamed or guilty about sharing that pain with others.  A therapist can help you find the strength, courage and skill to help you learn to share more effectively and ask for what you need.
