Social anxiety

I have social anxiety from my childhood. I don't get words to speak if any stranger is around me even if I have idea about the subject they are talking. I am very desperate with my behavior, i want to overcome from this. Please advice to whom i have to consult, a psychiatrist or psychologist.
