Hypnotherapy for Fear of Public Speaking
All about Hypnotherapy for Fear of Public Speaking, how it works and how many sessions you might need.
The fear of public speaking (Glossophobia) is just about the most common phobia that people suffer from.
It can turn even the most robust individual into a nervous wreck!
Many people cannot imagine anything worse than having to get up and give a speech, or make a presentation at work!
For some, the fear of public speaking might create so much Anxiety that they would rather turn down a better paid job because it requires making presentations.
It is not uncommon for men to opt out of being their friends “best man” as they will be expected to make a speech at the wedding.
Typically just the thought of having to get up and speak publicly can result in:
- Palms sweating
- Hands and legs developing the shakes
- Thoughts start to race through the mind
- The heart starts to “pound”
- The memory goes completely blank
- Feeling like you’re blushing terribly
If you have suffered these “symptoms” when having to speak publicly, or develop these feelings at the prospect of having to do so, then you would appear to have this problem.

The fear of public speaking is really Social Anxiety Disorder!
In all of the cases that we have helped people to resolve their fear of public speaking it has been by recognising that this problem is really Social Anxiety Disorder.
Common underlying thoughts may be that:
- “I will make a fool of myself and people will think I’m an idiot”
- “I’ll forget or stumble over my words and people will think I’m stupid”
- “I’m not as clever as the other people and people will think I’m a fraud”
The common thread in these thoughts is that “other people” will come to some conclusion about them and almost always this is believed to be some sort of negative conclusion.
People hardly ever think to themselves; “I bet they’ll all think I’m brilliant at public speaking”.. even though they might be!

The process of hypnotherapy we use in the clinic involves you sitting comfortably in one of our therapy chairs whilst you listen to Joan’s voice. She will discuss with you the specific situations or the triggers that lead to your Fear of Public Speaking problems. This will allow her to develop the most appropriate metaphors and suggestions to help you to deal with any negative feelings and to help you cope with the symptoms more effectively.
Over the course of the hypnotherapy sessions you will explore previous experiences that may have led to negative feelings and you will learn to develop a range of coping mechanisms.
At Wolverhampton Hypnotherapy we make use of an audio system called the “Hypno-Com”. Joan uses this to talk to you through a headphone and microphone system whilst blending relaxing music into the background. The Hypno-Com systems create a highly effective therapeutic environment that assists the treatment.
