Speaking in public is one of the most common fears that we come across in our clinics. Standing up in front of a group of people can be daunting and makes people feel fearful, anxious and self conscious. For some people they may only feel this fear when they are standing in front of a group of strangers. This may be especially problematic when they are doing a presentation or speech that takes them out of their comfort zone. Other individuals may even feel this fear when they are in a group of friends because they are worried that they will say something stupid or be judged by their peers when they speak. Our Hypnotherapy for Public Speaking Nottingham helps in both situations to make you feel more relaxed and calm so that those fears start to disappear away.*
At our clinics in Nottinghamshire we work with you on any areas where you may be experiencing a problem. This may be the need for help for a one off event such as a speech for a wedding where you need assistance so that you feel calm and confident in front of your guests. We also work with individuals who are experiencing day to day problems which may impact their work or social lives. Hypnotherapy for Public Speaking addresses the reasons for your fear and then teaches you relaxation techniques so that your feel calmer and more relaxed.*

Reasons for Public Speaking Fears
Just some of the reasons for public speaking fears include.
Comfort Zone – When you are pushed out of your comfort zone it can naturally lead to nerves and a lack of confidence.
Feeling Self Conscious – When you are addressing a group of people it feels as if there is nowhere to hide. Therefore any insecurities you have about your weight, looks, image or accent will appear to be magnified in front of a crowd.
Lack of Confidence – Even though you may be an expert in your field many people still feel worried about how others are judging them. They may think that they are being laughed at or ridiculed for their opinions.
Vulnerability – When you are stood up in front of a large group of people it is not unusual to feel alone and vulnerable as there is nowhere to hide.
Fear of Making a Mistake – Making a mistake is not the end of the world in fact public speakers make them all the time. The problem is worrying about making a mistake before you have even started as this immediately makes you feel nervous even before you have begun.
How to Overcome Public Speaking Anxiety
At our anxiety clinics we work with you so that you can build your confidence and belief in yourself so that you can accomplish your goals. Our aim is to teach you to feel relaxed, confident and in control.
During a hypnosis session you generally feel incredibly calm and relaxed. Whilst you are in this comfortable state of mind we work with you to discover what may be creating these negative feelings. Usually Glossphobia or public speaking fears begin after an incident where you felt put on the spot or embarrassed. These incidents may have happened many years ago. Once the negative thoughts or experience are identified we then help you to change the pattern of negative thinking by using hypnosis, NLP, positive visualisation, mental rehearsal and mindfulness. We know that all our clients have plenty of confidence and we just need to tap into your existing resources to help you feel more positive when you are speaking in front of others.*
