When people speak with me about their public speaking fear, we will discuss the many techniques for ridding themselves of the nervousness they feel before stepping up on stage. For people whose nervousness feels so profound that they can’t even get near the stage, the question of hypnosis often comes up as a potential “magic pill” cure for their public speaking fear.
At the same time that people will broach this topic with me to see if I support it, they may have an image of the stereotypical stage hypnotist who makes people do silly things on stage while they are hypnotized. This stereotype of hypnosis is not the type of hypnosis that will help rid you of your fear of public speaking.
Public speaking and presentations are really all about effective communication. The real goal we all have is to improve our speaking skills to the point where we are able to easily and effectively get our message across to an audience. If you have a fear of public speaking, this is a real hurdle to your being able to stand up in front of people and get your message across. Your nervousness causes other reactions like shaking hands, inability to find the right words, perspiration, mumbling, etc. which all get in the way of you feeling relaxed and your audience receiving your information. So, the real key is to find a way to diminish the nervousness or find a way to relax.
This is where hypnosis can fit in. You can consider hypnosis as a relaxation method. If your brain tends to go down the path of nervousness when you consider an upcoming presentation, hypnosis simply provides another path. Hypnosis is really just deep relaxation. When you are really relaxed it is easier for you brain to create new paths or new options for you to use in various situations. You can create the option to be comfortable and confident when you step in front of an audience instead of feeling scared.
Hypnosis is not a magic pill that you can take which will rid you of all of your problems. But, it is a tool you can use to increase the choices you have available to you when you are in a public speaking situation. You can choose to be calm, confident and relaxed.
There is no need to feel trapped by your fear of public speaking. With a short hypnosis session, you can learn to let go of the fear and move into confidence.
