A fear of public speaking is one of the most common problems people face, and one of the most widely spread fears people have. Even the very idea or thought of getting up in front of an audience can send shivers up your spine.
In some cases, this fear is enough to stop people taking a promotion or a job which involves giving presentations at work. That’s how bad this fear can be!
Typical symptoms include feeling tense, panicky, sweating, stumbling over your words, tunnel vision, over-worrying about what others are thinking, catastrophic thoughts, feeling hot in the face, worrying people can see you panicking and so on.
Whether you’re looking to calm your nerves, boost your confidence or simply want to overcome an overwhelming fear and anxiety at the very thought of speaking in front of a group of people, hypnotherapy can help.
The problem is that for some reason, your subconscious mind as determined this particular situation is a threat to your survival. You know consciously that you’ll survive a presentation, but your subconscious has decided otherwise.
The good news is that you can overcome a fear of public speaking pretty quickly by using hypnosis to help reprogram your subconscious to re-interpret the situation and help you feel more calm, relaxed and confident which in turn will help improve your delivery, speak more confidently and optimise your performance and break free from this highly irritating fear.
I’ve been meaning to email you to let you know that the presentation went well. I felt much more relaxed and confident about it, and wasn’t worried about what people were thinking. I had lots of nice comments afterwards which was also reassuring.
I had to do another presentation last week to a smaller audience, and although it’s not something I enjoy I certainly don’t feel as anxious about it. I found the techniques you taught me very useful. I’m amazed at the difference!
