Overcome social phobia and shyness using mindfulness meditation.

Study time
2 hours

Level 1

Start date
2 April 2023


Do you dread social events? Feel uncomfortable in awkward silence? Do you want to feel more confident and comfortable in yourself?

If so, Mindfulness for Social Anxiety is the course for you. We will use mindfulness: the practice of deliberately paying attention to the present in a non-judgemental way to reduce the power these negative thoughts have over us. It builds on our free 5-Day Mindfulness for Anxiety course to give you specific skills for dealing with social anxiety and draws on techniques from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT).

We'll start with a set of core mindfulness skills, before moving on to giving you exposure exercises to challenge your anxiety, and a set of warm-up and cool-down meditations for high-pressure social events like work Christmas parties, friend's dos and crowded events.

Each meditation takes around ten minutes and uses guided audio for you to listen along.
