composition-human Case Study

Andrew is a 31 year old man who says he was a shy as a child but transiently became more confident and more extroverted at 15 years when a girl took an interest in him. Andrew got braces on his teeth at age 16 and dates problems with social anxiety from that time.

Soon after he left school Andrew became a plumber. He is currently self-employed and says he has few friends. He currently has a partner and is engaged, but says he is not sure about her level of commitment.

Andrew avoids social contact and says he has had episodes of depression in the past, the last being only 12 months ago when he was treated for 3 weeks with sertraline but stopped the medication as he was feeling better. Andrew describes long term anxiety about making eye contact with people. He is acutely aware that he is unable to manage this and avoids social situations e.g. Has twice postponed having an engagement party with “numerous feeble excuses”.

Given Andrew is ‘shy’ and suffers social anxiety he might find eMental Health tools a good option to manage his anxiety as an adjunct face-to-face psychological therapy. Consider the following for Andrew:
