Yes, relaxation training can often help anxiety. Often several relaxation training sessions are needed to learn the procedures, but then the relaxation can be triggered by yourself in response to anxious feelings. Keith Nuechterlein, Ph.D. READ MORE
The most common usage of the term cognitive therapy is to mean cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Used in this way, both terms refer to a form of psychotherapy in which one focuses on certain thoughts or interpretations of events that lead to troublesome emotions or behaviors. By changing certain patterns of thinking about events and oneself, this therapy aims to change the resulting emotional reactions and behaviors. Sometimes the term cognitive therapy has been used to refer to rational-emotive therapy or to cognitive remediation. Rational-emotive therapy is similar to cognitive behavior therapy in its emphasis on directly changing thought patterns, but it focuses on improving rational thinking rather than on certain automatic thought patterns. Cognitive remediation is quite different. It uses training of cognitive skills, often through computerized exercises, to strengthen abilities in areas such as attention, memory, problem solving, and management of emotions.

Social anxiety can be treated with medication, psychological therapies, or a combination. The psychological therapies that are effective include cognitive behavioral therapy, which helps to revise the thoughts that occur when social situations are imagined or directly experienced, and behavioral therapy, which gradually exposes a person to the anxiety-producing situation in a way that extinguishes the anxiety response. I do not specialize in treatment of social anxiety, but a number of psychologists and psychiatrists do. You should consult a mental health professional in your area, as they could be helpful.
