Fear of public speaking


Eliminating your fear of public speaking is possible! With techniques like NLP and Hypnobalancing™, you can retrain both your conscious and your subconscious mind.






Public speaking?


If you want to be successful, then you need to present for impact, persuade, and get buy in for your ideas. Maybe someone asks you in a meeting to present your project or you’re in front of a packed conference room delivering a presentation that could make-or-break your career. This may put some kind of pressure on you. Therefore, some people don’t feel inspired in front of an audience but close to panic. Not everyone knows how to cope with that kind of anxiety.

In relation to public speaking, this type of fear is known as glossophobia or speech anxiety which is the fear of speaking before an audience. Stage fright can occur in people of all experiences and backgrounds, from those who are completely new to being in front of an audience to those who have done so for years.


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.

For a long time, the understanding was that people were afraid because they weren’t prepared. So, the whole focus was spent on being as well-prepared as possible. 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. They assured the people that they would cure their fear, and it could take anywhere from weeks to months, and the thing that was necessary was that they had an advanced desire to conquer the fear.

The great American modern dancer and choreographer Martha Graham meant:

I believe that we learn by practice. Whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or to learn to live by practicing living, the principles are the same. In each, it is the performance of a dedicated precise set of acts, physical or intellectual, from which comes shape of achievement, a sense of one’s being, a satisfaction of spirit. One becomes, in some area, an athlete of God. Practice means to perform, over and over again in the face of all obstacles, some act of vision, of faith, of desire. Practice is a means of inviting the perfection desired.


Yes, training where you practice and practice and practice, and you show up in front of people who care about you and you practice your speech, and you do really well – that’s wonderful. You do need to practice, and I want to support everybody who’s giving a presentation with training, I want you to be really brilliant in your subject. But it’s not enough to overcome a physiological, automatic reaction that gets triggered just by the thought – the thought – of looking at a podium, the thought the night before of going up on stage, being alone in front of an audience.

Consciously you may be heard that this isn’t as dangerous as it feels, but it still feels horrible! Your mental and physical reactions deny all logical explanations. Therefore, you have to deal with it where it is located; in your subconscious. Eliminating your fear of public speaking is possible!

Fortunately there are various treatment possibilities to reduce and even let go of limiting performance anxiety like hypnotherapy and Hypnobalancing. And there are definitely things you can do to help yourself. Number one is trust. Trusting yourself is really important. Therefore, we identify the negative self-talk that is always running in our heads and replace them with positive thoughts. And for your autonomy I teach you some practical skills. As the result you develop strategies to prevent and diminish discomfort, to put uncomfortable situations in perspective, and to continue organizing themselves to enable peak performance.
