Performance Anxiety Hypnotherapy

Performance Anxiety -
Fear of Public Speaking

Performance anxiety can arise in relation to public speaking, acting, singing, giving a speech at a wedding, attending a job interview, performing in a sport, taking an exam or driving test - in fact any situation where you are called upon to perform in some way.

This anxiety arises as the result of fear, and we react just as our ancestors did, with the classic "flight or fight" response - racing heart, tensing muscles etc. This may have aided our survival in past millennia, but it does not exactly help in giving a presentation.

The key is to lower the fear and prevent this automatic response, allowing you to relax and keep your concentration and composure. Easier said than done I hear you say, and I would agree with you were it not for hypnotherapy, which gets to the source of the fear - your subconscious mind.

The way we solve problems in our normal life is to think about them. With performance anxiety this does not work - thinking about the performance makes it worse. We get stuck in a kind of feedback loop, which convinces us we just cannot handle the situation. The reason is that the subconscious mind is generating negative thoughts and 'what if's' that pump up the anxiety. Hypnotherapy can break this loop by changing the input from your subconscious mind, enabling you to react much more calmly.

As with so many things in life that are worth doing, the early hurdles that you have to cross may seem high. I can help you lower the height of those hurdles, but you will still get a tremendous sense of achievement once you are over them.

“ I saw Keith on short notice 10 days before my driving test. I had previously failed my test and had been overcome with severe anxiety during it. A year later I was much more prepared with my driving so thought the test would be a breeze, but during my mock test the same debilitating anxiety returned and I failed within the first minute. I was frozen with fear and unable to drive like I normally could. This left me dreading my test and feeling full of fear and anxiety over it.

I saw Keith 3 times before my test. He was easy to talk to and made me feel very comfortable. I found the sessions themselves relaxing and very healing and I went into my test feeling confident and safe. I had an amazing test, felt calm and focused - and I passed!

Thank you Keith!”
