The term public speaking is defined as the procedure or an act of speaking to a set of individuals in an organized, planned, and measured manner or thoughtful way or style that is intended to inspire, encourage, influence, notify or entertain the crowd.

Basically, public speaking is a face-to-face speaking amid the audience or individuals for the sole purpose of communication. Presentation is closely associated with public speaking however; it is more of a commercial, knowledge sharing or profitable activity.  

The fear of being laughed at makes cowards of us all.” – Mignon McLaughlin

When some people hear the words, “public speaking” they feel an instant fear or terror. Glossophobia or the fear of taking in public affects hundreds of thousands of individuals around the world. This is also called the speech anxiety and according to astudy; a lot of people in UK are affected with this fear. No matter what kind of speech people are delivering, their body will tremble; they will feel physically sick, sweating, rapid breathing and mental blocks. Some people experience a “freeze” and will blush and suffer mild dissociation.

What is often misunderstood is that the therapist does not need to know why the fear developed to effectively treat the condition.  Whilst it is useful to understand what the initial sensitising event was, effectively therapy can be undertaken without this knowledge.  To change someone’s behaviour is to change someone’s belief and habits - and this can be all about how we forecast future events. The past does not equal the future!.

Being afraid to talk to a group can cause missed chances such as jobs interviews or promotions. Perhaps as a student, you need to deliver a presentation or stand up in the class and if you have fear or speech anxiety in speaking in public, it can affect your studies or worst, your grade. Having this anxiety can give you emotional and psychological distress which may affect your regular routine.

Since the anxiety or the fear of speaking in public keeps on making your life hard, you don’t need to continue with this fear! Hypnotherapy will help to lessen or remove the fear you are feeling when you are talking in front of a big crowd. Sometimes, people who are suffering from this fear have low self-esteem and don’t have the confidence to face and talk to an audience. If you don’t want to look foolish or be humiliated and be judged as an incompetent individual, then hypnotherapy will be the ideal solution for you.  

Hypnotherapy has been proven effective in helping people who are suffering from speech anxiety. This also helps to develop new and positive outlooks in life and create positive thoughts and emotions. Hypnotherapy can find the main cause of the fear or the anxiety through evaluating or accessing the area of the individual’s mind which triggers the anxiety or the fear and at the same time help people alter how those parts of your brain responds.
