Public Speaking Hypnotherapy
Glossophobia or speech anxiety is the fear of public speaking. Did you know that the number one global phobia is the fear of public speaking? Just giving a presentation to a handful of people can be enough to bring a lot of people out into a cold sweat – enduring several sleepless nights running up to the day of the presentation – with 75% of people feeling something between mild resistance and full-blown terror.
Most fear of public speaking comes from a negative childhood experience when you had to speak in front of people, it didn’t go well and your fight-or-flight adrenaline instincts kicked in, causing a wide variety of symptoms like shaking, increased heart rate and blood pressure, dilated pupils, increased perspiration and oxygen intake, stiffening of neck/upper back muscles, and dry mouth.
Reasons you have a fear of public speaking may vary;
> Worry about blushing
> Worry about being judged by colleagues
> Feeling under pressure to perform well, especially in front of people in senior roles
> Panic about being the focus of attention
> Fear that you won’t be able to get your words our properly
> Dreading being asked a question you are unable to answer
> Being anxious that you will forget what you have to say
> Worrying what others will think of you
