Help with upcoming presentations is something that clients regularly ask for help with. So how can hypnosis help with presenting to a packed hall or a group of coworkers?
This area comes within the realms of public speaking which often appears as a number one phobia. Fear of giving a presentation is ranked amongst social phobias which makes a lot of sense, bearing in mind that one of the top presenting issues of a social phobia is feeling excessively self conscious in public.
Now anyone can give the advice “pull yourself together, take a deep breath and just give it your best!” But we all know that it is a very different story when you are standing up there wondering what you are going to say.
The big problem is that these panic feelings are not coming from the part of your brain that is your logical thinking frontal cortex. These feelings are coming from the primal part of your brain which is there to protect you from danger and the primal brain’s answer to danger is to RUN.
That part of the brain is four times stronger than the thinking part of the brain so we need to bring in other resources that will help quieten the primal brain and allow the logical brain to operate at it’s best.
For this hypnosis is an excellent way of helping overcome phobias. It helps quieten and control the adrenaline rush so that you can get your well worked out speech or lecture confidently and presented in a logical and concise manner.
As a therapist I know that using Hypnosis alongside Emotional Freedom Technique and NLP plus other empowering techniques will help clients regain and vastly improve their confidence and self belief in these situations.
This turns what at first appears to be a threatening situation into a life and confidence
