I found the workshop very helpful, many thanks to the workshop leaders for all the work they put in, and the other attendees for creating such a positive atmosphere. As we were all in the same boat, people quickly relaxed and shared their experiences of paruresis. I would certainly recommend any sufferer sign up for one of the workshops. I have had paruresis pretty much lifelong, in my 40s now. I've had some success at desensitising myself in the past, but could never get past a certain point. The workshop really helped me to make progress, and has given me renewed vigour to try and overcome this problem.
