Hi,

For 6 years I have social phobia together with depression. I followed the advice and treatment of a psychologist before but it is still here in my mind. I can see no change.

What do you think about this?

Have you tried CBT - cognitive behavioural therapy?

As far as I know, depression and social anxiety are related to emotional neglect in childhood. And dealing with both at the same time will only worsen your case. Hence I advise you to start with the depression and then you deal with the social phobia. The rest, a good doctor or a good psychologist may help you out.
