Firstly, I think the better way to describe what you are wanting less of, is being less of an introvert. Shyness is to the point that social/physical contact is unbearable, and may be misdiagnosed as "Antisocialism" or "Autism".
A good way to start, is to point out what makes you an introvert compared to others. Are you scared by how you might be judged? Are you simply a thinker, rather than a brash "voice"?
Try saying things such as "I express my thoughts freely" "I am powerful" and other statements that can boost your esteem when it comes to social outlook.
Then again, there is nothing wrong with being introverted. Sadly, American society does not see it that way. They prefer extroverts; people who speak freely and can act in a crowd.
What does your shyness come from? If you tell me this I can advise you better. Is it social shyness from a lack of confidence? Do you have a disability of some description? Has something happened to you recently to cause this, or has it been lifelong.
There are several ways to fix this problem magically.
You could either banish the shyness during the waning moon, or do a spell to empower your confidence at the full moon. I'd probably go with the second. Use a small red candle, and carve it with runes for your intention. As the candle burns visualize your confidence growing.
Also find a crystal to wear to help your confidence like black onyx, blue lace agate, or green adventurine.
