Do you have to give presentations at work or speak in public?
Are you having panic attacks at the very thought of speaking in front of everyone else?
Is it time for you to do something to overcome your fear of public speaking?
Would you like fast help from an experienced professional hypnotherapist who is also a seasoned public speaker?
It’s said that fear of public speaking is right up there with fear of death.
People get so overwhelmed and afraid about speaking in public but it is really a matter of attaining the right set of skills. Where you can get into trouble is when you do not know what those skills are, so you panic and see public speaking as an insurmountable object.
As a professional speaker who gives public addresses, lectures and holds workshops I am very aware of the need to be confident, calm and collected when addressing an audience. This is something I greatly enjoy doing and have many years of experience since I was at college 50 years ago.
When I was a teenager I spoke about my passion which was Tchaikovsky. Being a dancer, I was obsessed by his ballets. Since that time, I have spoken on subjects around my professions of health, mental health, sexology, social justice and being successful in business, both academically and in the corporate spaces. All these subjects I have studied extensively. In fact one of the core lessons I teach speakers is speak about what you know and know what you are speaking about.

So, for these reasons and the fact that in my younger years I was a performer on the stage as a singer and dancer, I am well equipped to help people not only overcome their fear of public speaking but to actually enjoy it.
With an ever-increasing need for people in business, academia and public life having to give speeches, presentations or seminars, I am always busy helping people overcoming their fear of public speaking.
Sometimes you simply need to be trained. We are all, at times, afraid of being judged by our performances, but by using the techniques that I teach in one-to-one sessions, it is possible for you to be a comfortable, confident public speaker.
You may have had a time when you got hot under the collar, short of breath, dizzy, panicked and thought absolutely no one appreciated what you were saying when you presented.
Or you may have never got up to speak before, for fear of making fool of yourself.
Maybe you believe that everyone else can do the speaking but it is just something you have not been blessed with. That is not true. With practice you are just as able to speak in public or in meetings as anyone else.
Results may vary according to the individual.
I want you to consider that, in fact, being you is indeed your greatest asset because you are like no one else so that makes you unique which can engage an audience.
The very things that you thought you would be judged for, being you, when developed, will be the very things that can command other people’s attention.
Fifty years after I first started public speaking I still enjoy giving talks to rooms full of people and to speak during meetings. The skills I will teach you are enduring and transportable to different situations.
It’s fascinating and rewarding that I sometimes meet people meet people who heard a talk I gave decades ago and they tell me how it has affected their thinking or life in a positive way.
When you are known as a good public speaker, people also constantly ask you to speak at events and it is important to know how to be adaptable because anything could happen during your talk and often does.
With hypnosis I will train you to speak in your own confident voice fast
Of course hypnotherapy is powerful in helping establish a positive, confident mindset that a good public speaker needs.
Hypnosis reaches deep down into your unconscious mind and reduces that fear response and enables you to experience skills to help you feel calm and confident when you come to speak.
Just as important, however, is knowing the right skills to use or add to your basket of skills, which I also teach in the sessions.
Just as with any other skill, you need to know the elements that make up the competency of speaking as it is a learned skill and craft.
I have coached a large number of public speakers and performers over the years from politicians, television presenters, singers, actors, company directors, and sales people, and I can help you dispel your public speaking fear and give you the confidence you need.
It’s really the hypnotherapy that helps us speed up the process of you becoming a confident public speaker because hypnotic suggestions reach right down into your unconscious mind so you use the skills you need to feel confident in your presentations.
