Public Speaking, Presentation and Performance Anxiety, treated with Hypnotherapy and CBT
Many people suffer anxiety, blushing, flushing, nervousness or general fear responses when attempting to provide a public speech, at work presentation, university presentation or other performance.
Hypnotherapy combined with CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) and fact finding analysis can provide an effective response to this fear.
Hypnotherapy visualisation for performance, presentation and speaking
Visualisation in hypnotherapy enables the repeated practicing of the event, without error, and with increased desensitization to any stress. This is a form of SIT or stress inoculation therapy. it is gentle and pleasant and is designed in stages so as not to freak out the subject!
Hypnotherapy suggestion and psychotherapy for presentation and speaking
Suggestion is the use of psychotherapy and positive psychology to change the experience of the subject. Critical in presentations are:
1. Change the emotional state during the performance to a combination of positive emotions
2. Change the focus of the subject onto the topic and or audience making them mindful, and taking away self hyper vigilance.
Mindfulness in presentations
Much of the anxiety experienced in presentations comes from the subject becoming hyper vigilant and turning that on themselves, scanning themselves in a self critical way. Mindfulness enables the subject to relax in the present of the occasion, focusing on the topic, audience and overall positives.
Allies or enemies in presentations, the perception
Once fearful the subject often subconsciously perceives the audience as a group waiting to judge them. This is actually projection of inner self criticism onto the audience. Once it happens however the overall perception of the occasion is distorted. Using hypnotherapy the subject can come to accept the audience as a friendly or neutral group of people waiting to share information and interact, not enemies!
