anxiety + social skills

Teens 

Is your teen feeling anxious, nervous, fearful or overwhelmed? Anxiety can be present for your teen in one or multiple settings. Your teen may experience a sudden feeling of terror, shortness of breath, heart racing and excess sweating. Maybe they are experiencing inappropriate fear in certain daily routines or all situations? All these are signs your teen may have excess worry or anxiety.

Anxiety can be portrayed in not leaving the house, avoiding school, avoiding others, avoiding closed spaces, avoiding speaking in public or fear of talking to new people. Your teen may seem to be avoiding situations they once enjoyed and you may be unsure why. They may be irritable and not know why they truly are avoiding others. 

Teaching your teen to face their fears is a process that therapy can help with. Fear is an appropriate emotion but when it is combined with negative thoughts, it can be disastrous and cause anxiety. Too much fear can hinder your child from making friends, performing in school, being confident and succeeding. Through therapy your teen will learn to grow, understand and logically process their overwhelming fear. 

Social skills training may also be needed for teens who may worry about saying inappropriate things, have difficulty fitting in or making friends. Teens with social fears can learn to comprehend, process and change their negative thoughts related to socialization. 


Young Adults

You may experience anxiety in specific or all areas of your life. You may fear being around certain people, animals, places or even leaving your home. The anxiety can lead to feel panic attacks or a racing heart beat combined with sweating and feeling out of breath.  Worries can also occur when speaking in public, trying to meet new people at school or at work.

Living with some fear is appropriate but anxiety is much more than just some fear. Anxiety is overwhelming, inappropriate and can lead to physical symptoms. The physical symptoms can include twitches, stuttering, headaches or unexplained pain. 

Therapy can help you regain control of your anxiety. You can learn to feel better by gaining insight about your fears. This can empower you in a situation that would normally trigger anxious thoughts. By committing and working together during therapy you will regain the life you once had or have been seeking.
