Beat Your Fear of Public Speaking

At Therapy Lounge, we use a unique combination of Advanced Hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to help you to rapidly overcome your fear of public speaking.

Through our individual 121 sessions (and if appropriate, followed up by our informal weekly group practice sessions, details of which can be found at the bottom of this page), you can feel altogether calmer, more relaxed and all importantly more confident when you chose to speak in public.

The reason we're so confident in our ability to help with your public speaking anxiety is because your fear or phobia is simply something that you have learned to do. You were not born with it and it most certainly is not part of your physiological or psychological make up.

Public Speaking - With Video

For some, this learning takes place during their formative years, typically as a result of an uncomfortable rush of adrenalin when asked to read in front of a class at school or the like.

As a result of the fear experienced in that moment, the unconscious mind creates an early warning system to protect us. This early warning system is constantly looking for similar circumstances and when recognised, the unconscious tries to warn and protect us through the use of our autonomic nervous system, i.e. our fight and flight mechanism.

But for many this is a new and frightening experience. Many clients describe years of confident public speaking and then the fear and anxiety develops very rapidly.

Typically this relates to a situation where an individual is extremely stressed and that stress peaks during a meeting or presentation. Again, at that moment the unconscious creates an early warning system to warn and protect us, not from getting too stressed generally which was the real cause, but from public speaking specifically.

Unfortunately, consciously trying to control this kind of fear or phobia can be extremely difficult and often ends up simply making matters worse. The reason is because what we focus on we tend to amplify, so trying to think our way out of fear typically leads to us increasing the symptoms.

And because the unconscious is so concerned, it starts to widen the criteria for raising the alarm; thus what starts as a fear of presentations can often morph into a fear of smaller, less formal meetings and one to ones.
