Emma Warnock-Parkes, Clinical Psychologist at Oxford University, gives her four tips on dealing with social anxiety as lockdown restrictions ease
Restrictions on the number of people we can socialise with are being gradually lifted as part of England's roadmap out of lockdown. On 29 March, outdoor gatherings of six people - or two households - will be allowed for the first time in months.
If all goes to plan, all limits on social contact will be removed on 21 June - meaning the return of big parties, weddings and other celebrations with friends and family.

So, what's the best way to ease back into social life?
We got some advice from Emma Warnock-Parkes, Clinical Psychologist at Oxford University.
