sean cooper and a friend


Hi, it’s Sean Cooper here.

My mission is to help 25,000 people in the world overcome their shyness or social anxiety… and get the friends, confidence and romantic partner you want.

That’s me in the photo above. I’m sitting with a pretty Russian friend I met while traveling in Colombia.

Today, I live a life beyond my wildest dreams — filled with purpose, confidence, friends, freedom, travel — and so much more. But it didn’t start out that way.

This page will tell you more about me and my mission to help people overcome shyness and social anxiety.

Growing up I was always a shy boy. I remember hiding behind my Mom’s leg during the first day of kindergarten.

It was only around the ages of 5-7 that my shyness turned into severe social anxiety. After a couple of “traumas,” I became extremely nervous, awkward and quiet around people.

By the time I started my studies at the University of Ottawa, I was a total lone wolf and a virgin. On top of that I felt myself slipping into depression, maybe because I had no friends and no chance of getting a girlfriend.

One night I said to myself “I am going to figure this out for myself, no matter what it takes”.

I decided to study many different areas of psychology, therapy, self improvement, dating advice, etc. I combined all the best pieces of advice from all these areas and cured my own social anxiety. Soon after I created “The Shyness and Social Anxiety System,” a program that’s received stunning reviews from psychologists and people like you.

But it wasn’t exactly easy to “figure it out”! I quickly found out that most of the information on overcoming shyness and social anxiety out there was not only bad … it’s worse than useless!

Warning: Most Of The Advice Out There Is Ineffective Or Just Plain Wrong

1. First there’s the website articles out there written by people who have never actually been shy or socially anxious.

These writers give you motivational phrases like “you just have to believe in yourself and not care about what anyone thinks of you.” Yeah, right. If they had ever experienced how bad shyness or social anxiety actually feels like, then they wouldn’t be giving such useless advice.

I expose a lot of this bad advice in this article.

2. Then there’s the “hypnosis” tapes on those shady internet websites.

Here’s all I have to say about them: If you actually believe they work, then go ahead and buy them. I’m not going to stop you wasting your money.

Personally I’m very suspicious of people who claim to cure every problem in the world with just one tool.

3. Then there’s all the “psychologists” out there doing scientific studies.

You would probably assume that someone with a PhD can give you good advice.

The truth is that although they know a lot about the CAUSES of shyness and social anxiety… they know very little about how to actually cure them!

4. Then we go to the “psychotherapists.”

These are the people who are supposed to take all that theory from the psychologists and use it to fix people’s mental issues.

Actually, I found that psychotherapists weren’t all bad. Generally speaking, they will tell you to journal your thoughts and see which thoughts are irrational so you can stop them in the future. Then they will help you to schedule times when you will face your fears, like going to the grocery store twice a week.

This approach works for some people, but there are many downsides. Basically all psychotherapists have never had shyness or social anxiety, so all they can really do is read you instructions from their training book. They can only repeat to you what they read and HOPE it will work for you.

And if you have any specific issues, they will just give you the same basic advice anyone else would: “Believe in yourself and don’t care about people’s opinion.”


Oh, and there’s also the fact that you’re paying someone over a hundred dollars an hour to solve an issue they have never had to face. You get to sit there spilling out your worst insecurities and most humiliating thoughts while they collect the checks and then go home to spend anxiety-free time with their family and many close friends.

So Who Can Teach You How To Overcome Shyness or Social Anxiety?

How about someone who’s actually done it himself?

Not only have I read all of the books and listened to all of the courses out there… I have also tried all of the techniques out FOR MYSELF to figure out which ones work and which ones don’t for people struggling with shyness or social anxiety.

This means I know the difference between advice that “sounds good on paper” and advice that actually creates a change in your personality.

Here’s a short list of who I’ve studied from:

  • The titans of psychology like Albert Ellis and Carl Jung.
  • Anxiety specialists like David D. Burns and Thomas A. Richards.
  • Experts on meditation like Osho, Eckhart Tolle and Thich Nhat Hanh.
  • Cutting edge new therapies like Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, MBCT and more.
  • World-class dating coaches and pick up artists who know the secrets to developing charisma. (Yes, way too many hours here.)
  • Most of the confidence, self-esteem and conversation books and courses ever published (Hint: 95% of them were too oversimplified to be helpful, like just telling you to listen and make eye contact.)
  • And many more…

I’ve absorbed and integrated all their best wisdom into my own teachings. This means I teach you insights into shyness or social anxiety that you won’t see anywhere else, so you’ll overcome it much quicker.

Why Should You Believe That I Can Help You?

As you already know quite well, there are a lot of people running around trying to convince you that they have all the answers.

Well, unfortunately for you, I don’t have ALL the answers.

This is what I look covered in mud in a hot spring. That was a hot day in the desert!

But I do believe that I have SOME of the answers (and I think the answers I have are pretty important).

The question you’re probably asking is “Why should I believe what Sean Cooper says?”.

And my answer to you is that you SHOULDN’T just blindly believe me.

In fact, I would recommend that you approach my materials with a healthy skepticism, and a “scientific” perspective.

I want you to TRY what you learn from me. Read some of the articles on this blog for free and see if they help you decrease your shyness or social anxiety.

If you decide to invest in one of my products, then your purchase will be risk free because I put an UNCONDITIONAL MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE on everything I sell.

If you don’t get results IMMEDIATELY, then just contact me through this website… and I’ll refund all of your money within 2-3 days. I’m serious.

I think you’ll find that I’m not interested in things that don’t work. I like stuff that gets results. And BIG results, at that.

Only after you’ve seen that this stuff is REAL… do I want you to “believe” me.

I’m a person, and as a person I have my flaws. But I also think my programs are the best in the world, and I stand behind them. I honestly hope you get a TON of value from them.
