Hypnosis for giving a Presentation and Public Speaking
Fear of Public Speaking
So you’ve discovered that you must do a demo for your upcoming staff meeting. Though you find speeches a little bit nerve-wracking, you tell yourself it will be just fine. But as the meeting comes nearer, you know that it won’t be okay and you regret saying that you’d participate. Just thinking about standing in front of your colleagues with a presentation is enough to start your heart thumping and your skin sweating.
Is this a familiar picture?
It’s actually not as rare as perhaps you might think. As many as 1 in 10 British adults have trouble with social angst; this means; about 6.3 million people know just how you feel.
Presentation anxieties and how they influence us.
Rather than being just a minor hindrance, presentation nerves can cause profound negative effects in a person’s life; causing youngsters to give up college, job-seekers to be unsuccessful at career interviews, even leading individuals to avoid job promotions for concern about formal presentations.
Some commonplace symptoms include:
- Accelerated heart rate
- Sweating or rise in temperature
- Becoming red in the face
- Gut cramps or nausea
- Struggles to think clearly
- Stuttering when conversing
- Insomnia in the lead up to a presentation event
Testimonial from Karen D in Stamford in Lincolnshire
“I contacted Michael after getting a new job which involved presenting to groups. I needed help as previous presentations had involved my breathing being affected and my mind going blank, which meant I was constantly anxious about speaking in front of people.
When talking to Michael on the phone and explaining my problem, he took the time to discuss how EFT and hypnosis works and how it will help conquer my issues. He was a knowledgeable, professional person who is very experienced in his field.
The house where Michael works is beautiful and calming – it is also on a quiet private road just a short walk from Grantham`s Town Centre. Our first session was EFT. I found it an excellent tool for controlling negative thoughts and emotions and replacing them with positive ones – it also works instantly.
I then had 3 hypnosis sessions which involved the use of head phones, with frequencies mixed in with beautiful background music. These additions complement Michael’s natural technique during hypnosis.
After these 4 sessions, I am now presenting confidently to senior managers regularly – with great success. Michael’s help has enabled me to take a problem that was holding me back for 25 years and reverse it completely – speaking in front of people is no longer a problem – thanks to the expertise of Michael”
How hypnotherapy for presentation nerves may help
Presentation nerves in many cases is prompted by early experiences of stress or distress in a social setting. We may not always remember these kinds of early incidents, but because things are stored away in the subconscious mind, it still influences us while we become adults, maybe causing us to feel a deep aversion to presenting and public speaking in case we say something foolish or humiliating again.
By leading the client into a state of deep relaxation, the hypnotherapist can access the client’s subconscious mind and create new, constructive suggestions about the person’s ability to handle social circumstances.
