Many people suffer from public speaking nerves. Some say the fear of public speaking is the most common phobia in the western world. Whether it’s a business presentation, a best man speech or a television interview; in surveys, facing a group of silent listeners is frequently rated higher than the fear of death!
Specialist coaching with NLP and hypnosis can help you deliver a great speech or presentation.
We all have an inbuilt survival instinct called the ‘fight or flight’ response. When the mind senses danger, certain physiological changes occur; adrenaline is produced, heart rate increases and we sweat in order to cool down. This is a primitive response appropriate for being chased by a tiger for example. It is not however appropriate or indeed helpful when standing in front of people who are interested in what you have to say.
So, how do some people manage to stand up and speak seemingly effortlessly? Well, they employ tools and strategies. NLP modeled those people, and those tools and strategies are taught at NLP seminars around the world. If the fear of public speaking is holding back your career or causing you discomfort, then NLP coaching can provide you with a range of powerful techniques to put you in absolutely the best frame of mind to give that fantastic presentation you know you’re capable of.
