Public Speaking Hypnotherapy
Fear of Public Speaking is considered the number one fear. It ranks higher than death, flying or spiders. Mainly because we are all told that it’s an extremely stressful situation to be put in. But it isn’t inherently stressful. Many people who are afraid of speaking in public are under the assumption that you have to be brilliant at it to be a success.
It is understandable to feel a certain degree of stress at the prospect of delivering important information in an informative and interesting way. The problem with this is that anxieties can manifest themselves in a physical way and these physical conditions further fuel the mental perceptions of stress, resulting in the sense that you have lost control and that the task is too overwhelming.
The truth is, you don’t have to be a born entertainer, a polished wit or a charismatic raconteur to speak in public. Understanding and appreciating that you have something to offer your audience and believing that you do not have to be a Hollywood actor to accomplish can be enough to get you through the speech.
How Hypnotherapy Can Help
Hypnotherapy can be used to get rid of those feelings of dread and make the idea of speaking in public an enjoyable prospect. We identify just what your current physical, emotional and mental responses are in the situation and we set specific goals for the changes you want to bring about. You learn how to centre yourself and relax on cue so that you can master the physical symptoms of anxiety.
It may be that you worry at the thought of being the centre of attention or that you might say something incorrect or dislike the thought of how you may sound. Hypnotherapy can help you to analyse these concerns, process them and let them go so that you can operate in a calm and relaxed way.
During hypnosis you imagine being in the situation, all the time remaining completely calm and relaxed, until your anxiety level is reduced to zero; and through guided visualisation of behaving, feeling and thinking exactly as you want to in the situation, your confidence is increased until you feel sure that you can do this in reality.
By changing thought patterns and learning ways to relax, you will soon retain the calmness and focus required to perform with confidence and reach your full and most effective performance potential.
At the end of treatment, you know you can stay calm and relaxed and focused on getting your message across – that you are now a natural communicator, whatever the event.
