I am new to this site and any advice would be much appreciated. My 15 year old son is suffering from very low self esteem and has sever social anxiety. I have taken him to his gp and he prescribed him propranolol 10mg and refered him to see a councillor. To cut a long story short he attended 5 sessions with the councillor and I had to sit through each one as his anxiety was so bad. He then refused to go back because he said it was making him even worse. This has resulted in my health deterioration having to watch him go through this and feeling so helpless that I can't seem to help him feel any better. He says he thinks there is something mentally wrong with him because he can't mix socially with others and cannot start or hold a conversation with anyone. I have tried to reassure him that it has a lot to do with his age and this will come in time. Any advice would be appreciated. Sorry for the rambling on .
