NLP and Life Coaching and Public Speaking, for making presentations, speeches and for speaking up for yourself and becoming both competent and assured 

Public speaking can be daunting whether its giving a talk, delivering a presentation, making a best mans speech, addressing new people or giving the ‘elevator’ pitch at courses. Hypnotherapy can help with all of these and for most people they only really want to be a stage where they can do it without the old fear, almost being indifferent to speaking in public with it being just something you can do.

Not being able to speak in public can hold people back from careers moves and promotion and dealing with can help you to achieve your potential. There are many reasons why people feel that the fear manifests however there is very likely to be an underlying reason and hypnotherapy is excellent for finding this.

Some of the more common reason of why public speaking affects people are:

  • A lack of confidence in that they see or feel that other people are much better at public speaking than them and/or other people know more about a topic than them
  • A sense of isolation, that you are alone and vulnerable
  • Feelings of self consciousness regarding voice, accent, grammar, forgetting words and self image
  • Fear of looking foolish such as saying the wrong things, becoming lost, stumbling, running off stage and more
  • Also trying to get this under control using your conscious mind just makes it feel worse and can intensify the negatively of the feelings. As hypnotherapy works on the unconscious mind we will together bypass the logical, conscious mind and get you to the point where you don’t even think about the old fear.

Public speaking is a very common form of social phobia and is very high up on the fears of the vast majority of people. There are many ways of helping with this and finding the root cause often has massive affect in and of itself, others include visualisation, disassociation, working with the bodies urges and senses (submodalities in NLP), relaxation and simple breathing techniques. Everyone is different so there will be a unique and differing solution for you.

If the idea of delivering a speech to an audience makes your palms sweat, hopefully you can find some reassurance in the fact that you’re not the only one who has this reaction. Research indicates that one in five people experience public speaking anxiety, or PSA, making it one of the most common types of anxiety today.

Here’s the good news: other studies have found that, with the right strategies in place for fighting your fears, you can still perform well when you have a public speaking engagement or presentation of any sort. What are a few of these strategies?

#1: Breathe

When you’re nervous, your heart rate speeds up, you begin to sweat, and—if you’re not careful—you can easily work yourself into an anxiety attack. To help control all of these responses, take a few minutes before delivering your speech to close your eyes and take a couple of deep breaths. Calm your body so you can enter the stage (or speaking area) with a certain level of peace and not feeling all frenzied.

#2: Admit Your Nervousness

Even the most seasoned public speaker can feel nervous on stage. The harder you try to conceal this nervousness, the easier it will likely show through. Yet, admitting that speaking makes you anxious can actually help put both you and your audience at ease. You feel a sense of relief because now the information is out there, giving you the ability to address your anxiety and move on.

#3: Use (Minimal) Notes

If public speaking makes you anxious, there can be a tendency to write your speech out word for word so you can look at it if you forget your next statement. However, if you’ve ever watched a speaker read from their notes the entire time they are on stage, you know that this isn’t effective. You will lose your audience. Instead, keep your notes to a minimum, using only one- or two-word prompts for each point you want to make. This will help you keep your place without detracting from your audience.
