Fear of speaking in public

Public speaking

Hypnotherapy for public speaking is an antidote to the stress, anxiety and pressure that many people feel when they find themselves in a situation that requires them to speak in front of other people.

Fear of public speaking is one of the top three phobias of modern life with a recent survey putting it at number 2 on the list – just behind a fear of heights and just above a fear of snakes.

The fact is, public speaking is now part and parcel of life. Once upon a time public speaking meant standing up and giving a formal address to a gathered audience. But now it applies to just about everything we do in life, both at home, at work and at play.

And just because there are more opportunities for us to speak in public – and a greater expectation for us to perform well when we do – doesn’t mean many of us don’t still get a knot in the pit of our stomach when we have to face it.

My hypnotherapy for public speaking is designed to offer you therapy and coaching to give you the confidence in your own ability. That growth in confidence removes the anxiety and phobic fear that often accompany a public speaking commitment.

The situations in which you might be expected to speak publicly are varied. Some are quite low-key; others come with more pressure or are seen as more important. All of them are capable of giving us sleepless nights and anxious hours or preparation.

Here are some common situations where hypnosis for public speaking can really help you: job interviews, presentations, team meetings, weddings, after-dinner speaches and much more.

We understand that a fear of public speaking can be a crippling barrier to getting the most out of your life professionally and personally.

I know that the reasons for your phobia are rooted deep in your subconscious and are linked to past events in your life that you may not even be aware of or know about. The causes of issues around confidence and self-esteem are often to be found in an unresolved traumatic experience from childhood or your early life that you may not even remember but which your subconscious has retained and locked away.

I will work with you to identify the trigger for your fear of public speaking and then give you the tools to resolve it, building your confidence, self-esteem and self-respect to help you become a confident public speaker.
