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.

Heart Breathing is great for getting control of which is typically the easiest thing to get control over – the breathing itself 

The Drop Through Technique from NLP helps to control and soften and fears, anxiety or outright terror to a feeling or emotion which be much more managible.

A speaking phobia can cause many mental and physical problems such as sweating, stuttering, shaking and anxiety. These symptoms can sometimes start weeks in advance and can be very unpleasant to experience. They happen because your mind has developed a fight or flight response any time it starts to recognise similar signs and circumstances to that of the first time you experienced the fear of public speaking.

On the other hand, for some people, a speaking phobia can develop after years of being able to speak in public successfully without fear. This is often because you have suddenly become stressed and the anxious feelings associated with stress have peaked during a time when you had to speak in public. The mind has taken this as a warning and so from that moment onwards, any time you have to speak in public, your mind makes you fear it so that you will avoid it and therefore avoid stress.
