Hypnotherapy, NLP, Coaching and Public Speaking, for making presentations, speeches and for speaking up for yourself and becoming both competent and assured

Public speaking can be daunting whether its giving a talk, delivering a presentation, making a best mans speech, addressing new people or giving the ‘elevator’ pitch at courses. Hypnotherapy can help with all of these and for most people they only really want to be a stage where they can do it without the old fear, almost being indifferent to speaking in public with it being just something you can do.

Not being able to speak in public can hold people back from careers moves and promotion and dealing with can help you to achieve your potential. There are many reasons why people feel that the fear manifests however there is very likely to be an underlying reason and hypnotherapy is excellent for finding this.

Some of the more common reason of why public speaking affects people are:

A lack of confidence in that they see or feel that other people are much better at public speaking than them and/or other people know more about a topic than them

A sense of isolation, that you are alone and vulnerable

Feelings of self consciousness regarding voice, accent, grammar, forgetting words and self image

Fear of looking foolish such as saying the wrong things, becoming lost, stumbling, running off stage and more

Also trying to get this under control using your conscious mind just makes it feel worse and can intensify the negatively of the feelings. As hypnotherapy works on the unconscious mind we will together bypass the logical, conscious mind and get you to the point where you don’t even think about the old fear.

Public speaking is a very common form of social phobia and is very high up on the fears of the vast majority of people. There are many ways of helping with this and finding the root cause often has massive affect in and of itself, others include visualisation, disassociation, working with the bodies urges and senses (submodalities in NLP), relaxation and simple breathing techniques. Everyone is different so there will be a unique and differing solution for you.
