Drama lessons for anxiety sufferers with poor social skills.

I'm really struggling to build friendships with other mums at the moment. I just can't do small talk due to social anxiety and problems with eye contact. Is there such a thing as drama lessons for people with these difficulties? Basically to help with learning social skills. I suspect that I might have aspergers but don't have a diagnosis so can't access anything through my GP or the NAS. Thanks smile

Google confidence classes. There will be a fair few so read carefully. I fish small step might be getting a book called the anxiety workbook. It is very practical.
Otherwise a therapist with some background in social anxiety could help.

You can ask your GP to refer you for a diagnosis.

Contact the Girl with the curly hair project, it's specifically for women/girls with diagnosed & undiagnosed Autism/aspergers. They run lots of workshops, webinars etc on autism.
