Overcoming Stage Fright


To be off base is one thing, but to not get back on is another.

Karsten Noack


Sweaty palms, racing heart, beetroot face, a trembling voice … do you suffer from stage fright?

A few hundred thousand years of evolution and our human brain still cannot distinguish between a snarling saber-toothed tiger and the audience in front of us. It starts with the same chemical processes in our brains and bodies. It’s that flight or fight reaction to ensure our survival.

But please don’t run! You would miss this great opportunity to finally confront your fear, to step out of your shadow and take center stage. To be proud of your performance and conquer it! I know I know, I hear you saying “it is much easier said than done Mr. Noack” but let me show you how!

The stage is set!


To really shine on the stage, I support you with practical recommendations, proven techniques, and Hypnobalancing™, this will help you…

  • to reduce your stage fright to a controllable level
  • to dissolve a mental block,
  • to maintain your internal balance,
  • to discover and activate hidden resources and strengths
  • to be confident.

If you would like more information on this training session, please call me ﹣ ideally before the hyperventilation starts!

What clients say


I had stage fright. The training with trainer and coach Karsten Noack was accessible, filled with humour, excellent new perspective on communication methods, tricks and techniques to getting control of nerves. This helped me to overcome my fear of presenting in front of a crowd.

A friend recommended stage fright coach Karsten Noack to me and it was great. He helped me one-to-one, confidential private coaching sessions with presenting in English. Very very good, learned some really useful stuff.

Alex Frank


When I spoke English in front of an audience, I felt like a different person. When I speak English I have a German accent and as a result I felt not powerfull. I got a lot out of the training and coaching and and now I feel more confident in my skills. This increased confidence was due to the honest, open approach. I don’t suffer from stage fright any more. Not even when I present in English.

Eliminating Your Fear Of Public Speaking

What’s the big deal about public speaking? Old books will tell you that there’s no reason why you should be afraid to give a public speech.

And preparation meant the technical part of presenting. Do it again and again and everything will be fine. Therefore many trainers developed programs, which are really heavy on preparation and practice. But, that isn’t enough for most people with intense stage fright.
