What is a Fear of Public Speaking?

Anyone who has performed publicly will know that overcoming a fear of public speaking is extremely debilitating, and controlling the nerves that come before a performance is no easy feat.

The anxiety felt isn’t just uncomfortable, it’s also involuntary, making reactions hard to anticipate and deal with. Simply telling yourself not to be nervous about an upcoming presentation or performance is a bit like telling yourself not to breathe.

Even if your intention is to be confident, the fear is triggered by the subconscious mind perceives the upcoming situation as a potentially life-threatening situation and immediately activates the fight, flight or freeze response within you.

Overcoming Your Fear of Public Speaking

Feeling nervous in situations where we fear we’re going to be judged is absolutely natural. But if it restricts your ability to function effectively then it’s time to do something about it.

Therapy sessions with Danielle include cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and Hypnotherapy. And this integrative approach helps important messages hit home within the subconscious mind which allows for positive shifts to take place.

Hypnotherapy is a highly effective solution for people suffering from a fear of public speaking. Hypnotherapy works by relaxing the body deeply and training the brain to feel relaxed but clear when performing.

Danielle’s therapy sessions clear away unwanted and unhelpful beliefs about yourself and your ability to perform well. You will access new empowering beliefs that support you when you need it most. How you see yourself is a significant factor in how you perform.

An important part of the therapy for overcoming your fear of public speaking is the custom recorded mp3’s. These are recorded live in your therapy session and help create positive improvements in your mind through repetition of positive suggestions.
