“According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two. Does that sound right? This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.” – Jerry Seinfeld
Public Speaking Is Very Common
The above is a very funny quote, but unfortunately the fear of speaking in public is more common that you may think. It is estimated that around 75% of people experience some form of anxiety when they speak in public. Often the real trouble starts hours, days and even weeks before the actual event. This leads to a feeling of fear that can become so strong, that one may even withdraw from doing the actual speech.
How Hypnosis Can Help
Fear of public speaking can be a very big problem if your job is dependent on your presenting and speaking in front of clients or staff. But what if you were so scared to talk in front of a crowd at a family function, that you were nervous to show up for the party?
I had one such instance with a client who came to me because her mother’s 70th birthday was approaching in a few weeks, and she knew that she was going to have to say something in front of the estimated 75 guests. She was so upset and terrified, and wasn’t sure how she was going to pull it off. Results of course do vary with individuals, but in her case, through her work with hypnosis, she was able to deliver the speech without a problem. She told me afterwards that she felt so good that she just wanted to keep speaking. She was overjoyed that her mother received a “heartwarming, clear sweet speech”.
Many have various amounts of stress, anxiety, and fear and also a lack of self-confidence when it comes to public speaking. Hypnosis can be a very effective way to help overcome the fear of public speaking, and get you on the road to rebuilding your confidence. Instead of being afraid, you can learn to take those negative thoughts and reframe them into positive ones. The hypnosis works by helping to remove your undesirable subconscious messages that cause your fears, so you feel more relaxed and in the moment.
