Low confidence
Hi! I am a final year MBBS student and I have a very low confidence. I cannot open up to people and have social anxiety. I am normally a very shy and introvert one. Because of my low confidence, I fear a lot to answer any questions, or communicating with teachers in class. So this is badly hampering my study and I feel very insecure. Can a psychiatrist help me in overcoming this confidence issue? I really need a immediate help to live a life as a healthy person..!

Yes psychotherapy helps a lot with confidence building, communication skills, and social anxiety. As we grow up, we get conditioned to communicate a certain way. It could be due to the family/ culture we come from, or the experiences that we have had. That style however may not be the healthiest for our inter personal relationships and professional life. In therapy, a lot of my clients have benefited by inculcating a healthy communication style, and they have also experienced an increased sense of self esteem within a few sessions.
