SA-UK is a volunteer-led organisation so don"t expect a miracle cure!

However, most of us have found that just finding out more about the issues and talking to other people who know what it is like to experience the same problems has been truly beneficial.

It might feel like it sometimes, but you are not alone....

Much useful information is contained both on this website and in the forums, and support is available from the Forum and Chatrooms, please take your time to explore everything that the SAUK organisation can offer you.

'Regular' social anxiety is known to all of us as an uncomfortable feeling of nervousness.

Many people have particular worries about social situations like public speaking or talking to authority figures, or experience more general feelings of shyness or a lack of confidence.

For some, however, these social anxieties and fears can become much more troubling and difficult to cope with.

Everyday tasks which most people take for granted - such as working, socialising, shopping, speaking on the telephone, even just going out of the house - might be a wearing ordeal marked by persistent feelings of anxiety and self-consciousness.
