Hypnosis can have a profound effect on reducing or eliminating the fear of public speaking as well as other public performance phobias. Clients that are afraid of public speaking may be students that need to present their work in front of the class, business executives needing to sell their product, or just average people who may have difficulty talking to co-workers or supervisors. Some find it even difficult to talk at dinner parties, weddings or at family gatherings.
Very often hypnosis is seen as the last effort because they have already completed some expensive public speaking courses, they know they can deliver the contents, they are experts in their fields and their presentations are perfectly prepared, but as soon as they became the center of attention, they are scared and they go into the panic mode.
Why Does “Public Speaking” Create Such Anxiety?
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 recognize 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.
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.
If you are tired of feeling fear each time you must talk to groups, speak in front of colleagues or strangers, or are tasked with giving the best man’s speech don’t panic. Hypnosis can help you reduce your anxiety and stress resulting in a dynamic performance.
