About this work
Hand-drawn illustration depicting a lady sitting on a chair talking to a therapist during a counselling session. Positive (yellow) and negative (blue) thoughts are depicted on the faces of the people in her thoughts. One individual suffering from social anxiety disorder said: "I have had therapy in the form of counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), but as it was government funded it was time limited. The counselling helped me realise that what happened to me was not my fault and the reasons why my social anxiety is so severe, but it hasn't helped with getting past it." This image is part of a communication design project on social anxiety disorder which aims to show anxiety as it is experienced in everyday life: where the anxiety comes from, what it feels like and what people have tried to do to overcome it.
