Public Speaking? No Fear!
Dry mouth, pounding heart, sweaty palms, sensations of unreality and a feeling of panic? You’re not alone in having this experience when standing up in front of an audience, no matter how large or small. You may have already read self-help books, done a course, or bought an app, all designed to help you overcome your fear and mount a podium or stride onto a stage and speak confidently.
Now think back to when you were younger, maybe when you were at school. Did you stumble over your words in class or forget your lines in the school play? And if you did, how did your teacher react? Were you teased by your classmates, even bullied? And now think back even further, imagining yourself as a very small child. Did someone, a parent perhaps, criticise or laugh at you when you were trying to sing or dance or just express yourself to them? What did that make you think, and how did that make you feel? More importantly, what belief did you form as a result? Perhaps that you’d never do that again or that it was better and safer to keep quiet?
Your powerful subconscious mind – that part of the mind that continually stores data and has no delete function – would have stored that crucial piece of information, and taken great pleasure in replaying it to you over and over again, whenever you were in what it perceived as a similar situation. And because the subconscious has no concept of linear time, it continues to replay the information throughout your life, whether you are 4 or 40 or 80, with the sole intention of keeping you safe.
In the state of hypnosis, best described as a focused state of awareness, we can work with all levels of the mind simultaneously. Using the concept of ‘Wouldn’t it be nice if I’d known then what I know now’, we can help the subconscious to replace the old outdated information with something much better and certainly more healthy – the truthful version of events. When that happens, and the changes are reinforced by the hypnotherapist through the use of positive suggestion, you will start to feel much more confident in every area of your life, and not only ready but actually excited about speaking or performing in public. Butterflies? Yes they’ll still be there, and for good reason, as they remind us to stay on our toes and give 100% effort. Fear? Definitely no fear!
