You Can Overcome Your Fear Of Public Speaking With The Power Of Hypnosis
Does the thought of speaking in public leave you with butterflies in your stomach and your legs feeling like jelly?
Giving presentations, a talk or making a speech can be a terrifying experience. Whether you are giving a presentation to a customers, talking in a meeting or seminar – or giving a best man speech – nerves can get the better of you.
Many people feel deeply anxious about giving a formal talk or presentation and have a real phobia of speaking in public. In a survey in the USA, where 3,000 adults were asked to list their ten worst fears, public speaking emerged as the number one fear – above even fears of death and financial ruin! (Christine Stuart, “Effective Speaking”)
Here are some possible reasons for “stage fright”:
- Being unprepared
- Lack of confidence – a feeling that other colleagues are better speakers than you, or that they know more about the topic in question
- Feeling alone and vulnerable
- Feeling self-conscious
- Low self-esteem
- Something “bad” happened in a meeting or presentation years ago, and you are worried it will happen again
- You are frightened of being embarrassed or looking foolish – you may worry that you will forget what you want to say, stumble over your words, or say the “wrong” thing
Hypnotherapy can help you to get over public speaking anxiety by using the power of your own subconscious mind.
Hypnosis can help with building up your confidence, helping you to remain calm and relaxed. You can learn how to recognise your body’s unique reaction to stress and anxiety and to develop new healthy and positive ways of thinking and feeling. Deep relaxation techniques used in hypnosis help you to focus inwards and start to build your feeling of confidence, calm and self-belief.
In hypnotherapy you may use visualisation techniques, using the power of your imagination to rehearse or practice a speech or presentation in your mind. By doing so you will have already experienced the feeling of delivering a great performance, and your mind has been pre-programmed for success. With your feelings of confidence and control restored, public speaking can be approached with a new level of calmness and assurance.
Imagine if, instead of turning to jelly, you could learn to enjoy speaking in public and even look forward to it, writing your own speeches and presentations and most importantly, getting your thoughts across in a calm, assertive and impressive manner.
Here’s what my satisfied clients are saying:-
“I feel comfortable and content now in who I am for the first time. I have no fear of performing my songs in front of audiences or auditions any more. I feel free. I went from being uptight and nervous to total accepting the process, due to calmness and comfort of the session with Richard.”
– Jamie P, Caerphilly
I am happier and more confident. I have less fear of meetings and presentations. I haven’t felt so relaxed for a long time. I am now looking forward to the presentation I was dreading!
Good morning Richard. I recently had my last session with yourself last week with regards to anxiety, I thought I’d let you know that I had my meeting last night and I got through it with no problems and even went to a curry after (I even tried some). All through the meeting I kept grinning and smirking because all I kept thinking was Del and Rodney in the van jumping for joy of selling the watch. Thank you very much for all your help it feels like someone has taken a huge weight off my shoulders. Thank you again”
– Paul Dowdall
Richard, Once again, I found I could relax easily and clear my mind. The physical symptoms of stress I used to have [tight throat, stomach pains, heart racing, and irregular breathing] have nearly vanished. I was impressed at the degree of relaxation I was able to achieve. I was very pleased with how my [live St David’s Hall performance] piece went. Thank you!”
– Stewart Roberts
I feel relaxed, calmer and more positive. I am so much more relaxed about the thought of talking in front of groups than I can ever remember. Phew!
