Overcome Stage Fright/Performance Anxiety

Stage fright, also known as performance anxiety can be crippling to actors, musicians and others going on to the stage or set and whether they perform on stage or in front of the camera it can be extremely debilitating. Stage fright is the anxious feeling, phobic reaction or downright fear that comes over some people caused by the prospect of having to perform in front of others.

For some, it can be paralyzing while in others, it takes the form of “butterflies in the stomach” as the colloquialism goes. Just as with helping the actor stay calm for auditions, hypnosis can help with stage fright in the same way: by engendering positive associations tied to performing on stage or before the camera. Hypnotherapy, NLP and I can help you to train your mind to experience a new reality in which you are calm and in control.

With using cognitive hypnotherapy, NLP, positive psychology and using hypnosis can give you the ability to control your mind so that you can turn your talent on like a switch (the on/off part or rather the off part isn’t important) indeed the ability to switch things is a great ability and one of which will help you massively.

Being in the Zone, in the Part, being Confident and in Control

Actors, musicians and models need to be absolutely 100% confident in themselves and in their abilities. This is obviously essential and although you can be as sure as possible before any performance or audition; sometimes nerves, anxiety or fears can and do kick in. Hypnotherapy is an excellent way of discovering any root cause for this and then for un-doing or changing that former belief around that situation. It can be surprisingly simple and quick to uncover the problem and even quicker to resolve it.

From then onwards its more simple when we move on to the process of building up belief, confidence and the identity of who you know you can be – basically being the best person you can become!


Unfortunately, many actors act but don’t really see themselves as actors, much less a person who could command top roles and pay. Hypnosis can help you to see yourself as what you want to be, making getting there easier.

Get In And Out Of Character

A good actor becomes the character he or she seeks to portray and truly memorable performances are partially a result of this ability. When you are your character every subtle body movement or flow, facial gesture and controlled movement flows with ease; including your vocal inflections, characters, cadence, style and intonations.

Your character’s affect and your demeanour takes front stage centre, in focus and in demand; because you’ve already left yourself at the door. This requires a level of immersion that is not unlike the hypnotic state of hypnosis itself! – You will find so … do enquire

Many people have issues around interviews and the nerves which go along with them, this fear can hold people back from promotion, new opportunities and that dream job. These nerves can be so extreme that they may make a last minute excuse and bail out of the experience.

For others it can be that they will physically shake, their heart may pound, they may perspire, blush and go red, feel embarrassed, mumble or stammer out their words or not be able to remember what to say, go blank mentally and maybe a combination of these things.

It doesn’t have to be that way and things can change. I have worked with many people who have had issues around interviews and it has in many occasions held them back professionally, however I can offer help with this and to help diminish interview stress and nerves, generally takes 2 – 3 session.

Stay Calm in Your Auditions

Stop seeing your auditions as stressful and vulnerable moments. Feeling nervous, anxious and/or self-conscious can only lead to a performance that comes across as stiff and stilted, rather than the natural flow that epitomizes an exceptional, charismatic and natural performance. So basically doing exactly what you don’t want to!

Hypnosis can help you keep your mind calm and focused during your auditions. This is done by training and re-conditioning your mind to reframe the audition experience, making it into an empowering experience where you come into your own. This is done through a combination of remembering positive experiences more, guided imagery and positive suggestions while in the hypnotic state.

With the use of hypnotherapy, NLP and positive psychology we can together help you can train your mind to ACT, act, re-train, think and feel differently regardless of distractions such as who might be in the room. So essentially give you your mind, brain and reality an ability to be in the moment so that you can give a stellar and near as if not perfect performance.
