I tense up when people are watching me

I get tensed up with every small thing when people are watching me. If I’m myself I can perform well. This thing is eating me up and I will be glad if you can help me deal with it.

Thank you. Paul

Hi Paul

Thanks for sharing your experience.

Physical and emotional responses are a result of cognitive processes and thinking patterns that take place and it important to challenge ourselves with any negative self talk or personal blame that we may be carrying.

Cognitive behavioral therapy is proven to be quite effective at addressing any issues which are manifesting in unwanted behavior and I would encourage you to seek further support so that you may increase your own self awareness. Further resources are listed below which may be of help:
https://www.bacp.co.uk and my own website which features further information on a variety of topics which may be useful https://www.livingwithfinesse.com/publications/
