What Is Expected of You as a Patient?

Many people feel anxious at the beginning of therapy and wonder whether they can be helped. All you have to do is to be willing to give therapy a try. Your therapist will teach you things you can do to help yourself and ask you to practice them between sessions. Early exercises will be quite easy, but they will become more challenging as you feel more comfortable. The more you work on these exercises, the more likely it is that your social phobia will get better.
