Fears of public speaking
A fear of public speaking is common. For some, simple steps allow them to overcome this barrier and achieve their full potential but for others professional, tailored therapy is needed. When you’re struggling with a fear of public speaking, our therapists can offer you tailored treatment that matches your needs.
We understand that a fear of public speaking can have implications on other areas of your life. From limiting your potential within your professional work to affecting how comfortable you are in social situations, a fear of public speaking can leave you feeling restricted. It can also have knock on effects, such as harming your self-confidence and belief in yourself, leaving you feeling more vulnerable and at a loss of how to address the issues.
It can be difficult to seek professional support and we recognise that. But working with a highly trained therapist can help you to recognise why you’re affected by a fear of public speaking and place the tools to overcoming the fear in your hands, putting you back in control. It’s important to remember that there’s no shame in seeking the support of a therapist and many people use a therapist at some point in their lives.
What treatment is available for fear of public speaking?
Our highly trained and experienced professionals will work with you from the outset. Starting with an assessment, we’ll identify the key areas where you could benefit from additional support, providing a tailored treatment plan for you. With a wide range of methods at their disposal, including cognitive behavioural therapy, hypnotherapy, and mindfulness, our team is well placed to not only analyse your issues but to provide effective treatment options that consider your personal goals, ambitions, and demands too.
On some occasions, a fear of public speaking is linked to other issues. Where this is the case, we are able to provide a holistic treatment plan that considers both your fear of public speaking and the underlying reasons behind it. Together with your therapist, you can create techniques, thought processes, and more that suit you and your situation. We take an adaptable approach, reviewing how you’re progressing and allowing adjustments to be made where necessary, resulting in a process that works.
Our treatment with you will focus on reducing the stress and nervousness you may experience when speaking publicly, allowing you to perform better. Another options, that can be used alone or alongside our other methods, is medication to help you feel calmer.
