    Counseling can be effective. Immersing yourself in progressively more challenging situations is how you'll really improve (counseling assists in this). Anti-anxiety drugs will allow you to face situations that would be too hard without them (e.g. I went on some dates a while back using them to prevent panic attacks and now I can go on dates without their help!.. well, I could if I could find girls to go on dates with D:])

    Unfortunately, the benzo class of drugs (the one that helps here) is ripe for abuse and hard to get if you request it. I have been kicked out of doctor's offices for asking for it before... Tread cautiously.
