The Shyness & Self-Esteem Series 

A 3-moduled, self-study series created by two psychotherapists to help you to understand your shyness through the lens of self-esteem. 

Hi! We're Laura and Carley, two qualified psychotherapists. We have both personally experienced feelings of shyness and have supported many clients who identify as shy within our therapy spaces. 

We will be sharing our knowledge, experiences and giving you an insight into the discussions we have in our therapy rooms. 

Anchor 1

This series is for you if:

  • You identify as someone who is shy and often wonders why that is.

You may be someone who compares themselves to others and wonder how they’re able to comfortably receive attention (both praise and criticism). You may feel self-critical and annoyed at yourself for caring about what other people think.

  • You want to start feeling more comfortable being seen and receiving attention.

There may be situations where you are having internal battles with yourself about whether or not to speak up and/or get involved. This could be in social settings or professional meetings. A part of you really wants to go for it, while the other part (usually the one that wins) is desperate to go unnoticed.
