Shyness Home Page

Shyness and social phobia do not have to interfere with achieving professional and interpersonal goals. The pain of shyness can be relieved by challenging automatic thoughts and beliefs, and learning new behaviors.

This page is a gathering of network resources for people seeking information and services for shyness. It is sponsored by The Shyness Institute, Berkeley, California (an institute for research and public education in shyness and social fitness, developing Social Fitness Training, including mindfulness exercises).

Dr. Lynne Henderson also has her own Private Practice, which not only focuses on shyness, but also on anxiety disorders more generally, on depression and interpersonal problems, using CBT, CFT and ACT as well as emotion-focused therapy. She also works with couples.

(Note: This site is to encourage networking. The Shyness Institute and Dr. Lynne Henderson cannot, and does not, necessarily evaluate or certify the quality of the services mentioned here.)
