What we're about
Meet others with social anxiety, and/or public speaking anxiety.
My website: https://www.sociallyspeakingplus.com/local-groups/ has more info about the Meetups plus my whole life story with SAD. Sign up for my newsletter (bottom of each page) and instantly receive CBT documents and worksheets.
This Meetup is an excellent opportunity to meet new people that you can openly share your anxiety challenges with. Offer support and understanding and share your story with others! This is a judgement free and low-pressure environment.
If you prefer not to speak at all, no problem, just come and observe. Please do not let the fear that you will have to speak hold you back from attending. You can learn valuable information just from listening to others and realize that you are not alone.
Please join our PRIVATE Facebook group for extra support and socializing with others with SAD! https://www.facebook.com/groups/162274414366280/
I enjoy meeting people that also have SAD. I have made so much progress by maintaining by voluntarily facilitating SAD support groups since 2006 and Getting Over Stage Fright (fear of public speaking and performing) workshops since 2017 in CT, 3-4 times a year.
I also am a Certified Life Mastery Coach specializing in the areas above as well as overall personal growth. Please contact me for more details!

We meet in libraries in Bristol and Plainville, CT on weeknights Usually, meetings run about an hour and a half. On average, there are 2 meetings per month, alternating between Regular Discussion Meetings (highly recommended to attend this one first) and Advanced Activities Meetings in which we do exposures.
There is no commitment involved; attend as you are able.
On occasion, we do post events to go out and socialize.
I look forward to meeting you soon!
