In brief: CBT therapy

Social anxiety responds well to professional mental health treatment.
An effective treatment is cognitive behavioral therapy with an individual therapist. Also it's really important to confront your social anxiety and group therapy may provide you the support and push you need to overcome your fears.

In brief: Therapy?

Have you yet tried any form of psychotherapy? Typically, the optimal combination of things to treat emotional issues such as social anxiety is medication which psychiatrists can prescribe (which, on your best day, is supposed to take the edge off symptoms) but the real gruntwork takes place in psychotherapist's consulting room.
