Fear of public speaking is not only common; it is often feared more than death itself! Sometimes there is social anxiety and at times people just feel terror when speaking publicly, or even thinking about it.
Your fear is there to protect you from harm, but in excess it gets in the way of speaking calmly and confidently.
Some public speaking fear symptoms can include:
- Increased heart rate
- Tight chest
- Trying to distract yourself
- Digestive problems
- Excess Sweating
- Sense of fainting
- Avoiding work, meetings or giving speeches
The good news is that Mindfulness therapy and hypnotherapy can greatly assist you to anticipate public speaking calmly and relieve these symptoms.
