Treatment for social anxiety - mapping specific mechanisms
When you seek psychological help for social anxiety with us we begin by mapping the specific mechanisms that are the driving force behind your specific difficulties.
We separate between basic foundational factors, triggering factors and sustaining factors.
Once we have mapped these factors, we will know more about what is needed to give the best treatment for social anxiety in your exact case and how your treatment will be structured.
Simply becoming conscious of the inner dynamics that are driving your anxiety is often therapeutic in itself.
Therapy for social anxiety - various approaches
There are various, recommended approaches for the treatment of social anxiety. For example, intensive depth-therapy (ISTDP ), metacognitive therapy, cognitive therapy and psychodynamic therapy.
You can read more about these here. There is no one method that is right for everyone all the time. The determining factor for a successful treatment for social anxiety is that we collaborate in a way that is meaningful for you.
Our professional assessments will form a starting point, and then together we will evaluate the ongoing progress as well as any need for potential adjustments.
Social anxiety with a psychologist in Oslo - safety and challenge
We place great value on creating a foundation of trust and safety and of being open and forthright about what we are thinking and doing at any given moment.
Within such a framework you can best practice new ways to handle anxiety, as well as tolerate the conflicts of need and emotion that on some level are often at the root of a social anxiety disorder.
Does treatment for social anxiety work?
The prognosis for treatment of social anxiety is good. We work with a combination treatment that offers the potential for freedom from symptoms as well as personal development.
Many treatment methods and information on the internet focus only on the sustaining factors that occur with social anxiety. At Psykologvirke in Oslo, we always attempt to also work with the underlying causal factors.
This means that the treatment has a broader potentiality.
By resolving underlying anxiety creating internal conflicts, self-esteem is improved, and you can freely grow and enter into relationships with others on your own terms.
Everyone deserves freedom, joy, love and good health. We are a dedicated team who bring the best of psychological expertise in our work with our clients.
