How do you stop or control Social Anxiety?

I cant face public speaking..... whenever im put in a situation like this, my heart starts pounding, my hands sweat, i shake uncontrollably and my voice trembles. I cant help any of this. Ive been to a doctor, but they just referred me for counselling. I feel like this will hold me back from doing well in my examinations.

I am exactly the same i suffer from panic attacks and the doctors were least from helpful :/ Its a struggle you just have to try not to focus on it otherwise it will get worse ... Personally i asked my teachers if i could speak in a smaller group they were more than coherent :) Also try to have positive thoughts and ask yourself questions like "Whats the worse than can happen?" :) i hope this helps :) <3 x
