Fear of Public Speaking Hypnotherapy for Glossophobia

Public speaking is probably the most common of all the phobias that we treat in our Birmingham hypnotherapy practice.

If this is something you struggle with, then you're in very good company. Absolutely anyone can be affected by public speaking anxiety, from celebrities and accomplished presenters to the otherwise confident best man called upon to make a short speech at a wedding.

It can happen to experienced lecturers who feel increasingly anxious when talking to groups, or to business people who can no longer avoid giving talks or presentations in front of colleagues, clients and others as part of their expanding professional responsibilities.

I was worried that I might not like the person I would find in therapy, but quite the reverse has happened. I now have self-respect and confidence just seems to be part of who I am...
- Richard Kennedy, Leicester

In extreme cases, the thought of standing before a group of people and talking or presenting can fill the person with such foreboding, anxiety and fear that they feel nauseous. In fact, some may even become physically sick at the thought. (The celebrated American film director and actor Woody Allen is known to experience such severe speaking anxiety that he regularly vomits before appearing in front of audiences.)

fear of public speaking
When we experience anxiety and panic at the thought of having to speak in public, it is because we are worried that we will get it wrong, loose our train of thought, bore, appear moronic or fail in some other way—and that there will be a room full of witnesses to our failure. In a nutshell, public speaking fear is the fear of being embarrassed or humiliated in front of other people.

Fear of speaking or presenting in front of others means that we are being uncontrollably self-conscious.

Fear of Speaking in Public Where Does it Come From?

The fear of public speaking or of talking in front of others is, in fact, a form of anxiety disorder, with all the signs and symptoms associated with this.

fear of public speaking
Usually, public speaking anxiety is the result of an experience (or experiences) buried in the person's past which may or may not be consciously remembered. In psychological terms it's what is called a 'conditioned response', or a 'conditioned reflex'.

Often a phobia of public speaking becomes embedded because the younger self has experienced acute embarassment or a sense of humilation when called upon to speak or to perform in front of others.

Usually this will have occured in the early, developmental years, in school or on an occassion when others were perceived to be closely watching. This specific experience – and the feelings of embarrassment and emotional discomfort it generated – has then become generalised to all occasions when the person may be asked to talk or to present in front of others, thereby causing ongoing anxiety.
