Social phobia, specific phobia, post traumatic stress disorder, general anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, or similar, all fall under the category of anxiety disorder, and calls for clinical and therapeutic treatment.
Often the first step in treatment is deciding whether the anxiety is viewed as the focus or as a symptom of a more general problem. Either way significant therapeutic gains often can be had as long as there is a desire for change. (Actually, even a resistance to change can prove an asset.)
