Sometimes when people have difficulty getting words out, it is a form of social phobia. The person doesn't speak because he or she is afraid of being evaluated by others or making a mistake. It can be hard to get treatment if you are experiencing this type of problem. Fortunately, thanks to the Internet, there are many ways to get help without saying a word. There are online therapists that can help you using online chat or by email. Or if you prefer to see a conventional therapist, you can start by writing things down.
