CBT Cognitive-Behaviour Therap[y works best for this, possibly aided by some medication. So assessment by a good local shrink is the best way to get started on this. Aklso, check out what's available through Exclusive Books and Kalahari.net, as there are some really useful self-help books on shyness / social anxiety, especially those using a CBT approach by which you can start to help yourself
