Hypnotherapy for public speaking is an antidote to the stress, anxiety and pressure that many people feel when they find themselves in a situation that requires them to speak in front of other people.
Fear of public speaking is one of the top three phobias of modern life with a recent survey putting it at number 2 on the list – just behind a fear of heights and just above a fear of snakes.
The fact is, public speaking is now part and parcel of life. Once upon a time public speaking meant standing up and giving a formal address to a gathered audience. But now it applies to just about everything we do in life, both at home, at work and at play.
And just because there are more opportunities for us to speak in public – and a greater expectation for us to perform well when we do – doesn’t mean many of us don’t still get a knot in the pit of our stomach when we have to face it.
Our hypnotherapy for public speaking in London is designed to offer you therapy and coaching to give you the confidence in your own ability. That growth in confidence removes the anxiety and phobic fear that often accompany a public speaking commitment.
The situations in which you might be expected to speak publicly are varied. Some are quite low-key; others come with more pressure or are seen as more important. All of them are capable of giving us sleepless nights and anxious hours or preparation.
HYPNOTHERAPY FOR PUBLIC SPEAKING AT WORK
Wherever you are in the professional food chain, you’re going to be called upon to perform some sort of public speaking duty at some point in your career.
Here are some common situations where hypnosis for public speaking can really help you.
If there’s a situation guaranteed to give you anxiety over speaking in public, it’s the dreaded job interview. It’s an hour or more when you will be expected to perform articulately, often in front of complete strangers who are there for one reason, and one reason only: to judge you.
From time to time, we’re called upon to present work to colleagues or managers. For many people, this is a key and frequent part of their day-to-day job – and if it’s a regular part of your role and you also struggle with a public speaking phobia, your life at work can quickly become a nightmare.
If you work at a senior level in an organisation you may have to present business-critical information and strategy at an executive or board level and the pressure to deliver your presentation with authority and confidence can be intense.
Senior managers are often required to lead team or company briefings and having the public speaking skills to convey important messaging and maintain employee confidence and engagement is a wonderful skill to have in your professional toolkit.
Hypnotherapy for public speaking at work is designed to reset your subconscious and turn down your inner critic. Our experienced and expert coaches and therapists use their years of training and practise to work on your self-esteem, enabling you to recognise your own abilities and have confidence and trust in them and in yourself.
HYPNOTHERAPY FOR PUBLIC SPEAKING AT HOME
While it’s unlikely you’ll need to draw on your public speaking skills frequently away from work, there are still occasions when you’ll be expected to stand up and ‘say a few words’. For someone with a fear of public speaking, those occasions can be more terrifying than having to perform publicly at work.
Whether you’re a bride, maid of honour, father of the bride, groom or best man, wedding speeches are possibly the ultimate test of anyone’s fear and anxiety around public speaking. There’s enormous pressure to be funny or touching, loving or reverent.
We also put enormous pressure on ourselves to do well, because if everything goes to plan there’s a good chance we’ll only get one shot at it.
Our hypnotherapy for public speaking in London will help you to say goodbye to the nervous wreck you expected to be and become a confident speaker who’ll have the wedding guests eating out of the palm of your hand.
Like wedding speeches, the prospect of having to give an after-dinner speech or talk can be a riot of anxiety and stress because the focus of an entire room is on you alone.
Having a great script only goes so far in calming your inner fears – but with our hypnotherapy for public speaking, we can work with you to remove the self-doubt that prevents you from delivering it with flair and confidence.
Birthdays, retirements, leaving speeches and funerals
All ‘event’ public speaking commitments come with their own pressures. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a few words off-the-cuff at a significant birthday party or a more prepared and solemn eulogy at the funeral of someone close to you, if you have a fear of public speaking, you’ll feel exactly the same sense of dread.
We’ll work with you to conquer the subconscious fears that drive your phobia around public speaking so that whatever event or occasion you’re asked to stand up and speak in front of other people, you’ll have the confidence and self-assurance to deliver it just as you would want to.
HOW HYPNOTHERAPY FOR PUBLIC SPEAKING IN LONDON CAN HELP
We understand that a fear of public speaking can be a crippling barrier to getting the most out of your life professionally and personally.
We also know that the reasons for your phobia are rooted deep in your subconscious and are linked to past events in your life that you may not even be aware of or know about.
The causes of issues around confidence and self-esteem are often to be found in an unresolved traumatic experience from childhood or your early life that you may not even remember but which your subconscious has retained and locked away.
We’ll work with you to identify the trigger for your fear of public speaking and then give you the tools to resolve it, building your confidence, self-esteem and self-respect to help you become a confident public speaker.
