Business performance
  • Public speaking
  • Presentations
  • Interview performance
  • Self Confidence

Making a speech is enough to make most of us feel nervous, having a fear of public speaking is very common, for some people this anxiety of public speaking can develop into a phobia known as Glossophobia.

Glossophobia comes from a certain type of social anxiety and social phobia. When we’re speaking publicly, the audience will be paying attention to you and listening to what you have to say. Glossophobia comes from an uninvited belief of being judged, which can be triggered when lots of people are paying attention to you. This, combined with doubts over your ability to deliver the task in hand can feel overwhelming.

Fear of public speaking can be reinforced when we make mistakes. Even if we only make one small mistake when speaking, our minds tend to focus in on ourselves justifying our anxiety.If your anxiety overwhelms you and is holding you back from what you want to do in business, you should consider seeking help with public speaking hypnotherapy sessions

It’s important to note that a fear of public speaking isn’t limited to making speeches in front of a crowd.Glossophobia sufferers may also dread other situations, speaking with seniority staff, business associates, attending job interviews , conference calling or running webinars.

How can hypnotherapy help ?

Hypnotherapy will help you by change the past reference points in your subconscious mind and help you to create a new reality one that the mind believes you have already achieved . You are free to then focus on the tasks in hand and not yourself , releasing fears worries and anxieties. Hypnotherapy helps you to create that professional best version of yourself regardless of what you believe to be true now, you will quiet the uninvited thoughts that have been fixating on the negative for to long.

I recommend 3-4 Hypnotherapy and NLP sessions to help overcome your fears, usually two weeks apart to give you time to see some evidence of the changes taking place within you.



Sports performance

Hypnotherapy and NLP for improvement of sports performance

Research suggests that sports performance has more to do with mental abilities than physical abilities. To many people this may sound like a strange, however thousands of sports people have recognised the power of their mental state having a positive effect on their sports performance. Hypnosis has been used for many years to help professional athletes enhance their natural ability to achieve great outcomes.

Successful athletes often control their state of mind so they have a psychological advantage which prevents them from underperforming.Hypnotherapy engages an athletes mind in a powerful way to help them focus on their goals and achieve them. Being able to control negative thoughts and emotions is the basis of sports psychology and can often be achieved through hypnosis.

Sports people often talk about being in the ‘zone’. This means that they get totally absorbed in what they are doing and barely notice outside distractions when performing at their best. Hypnosis can often help individuals access the ‘zone’ so that they can use this to enhance their performance.

How can hypnotherapy help with sports performance?

Hypnotherapy can help with golf, running, football, cricket, boxing, darts, swimming, and most other sports. Every athlete, whether currently successful or not, has internal resources. Accessing these inner resources and putting them to work is often the advantage successful athletes have.

Hypnotherapy can improve and enhance an individual’s mental attitude by helping them to relax, removing anxieties and boosting confidence. Each individual is different, so results will vary from athlete to athlete, however in general, individuals can use hypnosis to maintain composure, overcome distractions and fears and gain confidence in their ability.

The brain can’t distinguish between doing something or imagining doing something so visualising winning a competition can help tune your mind for success. If the human mind is capable of imagining something, it’s capable of making it happen. Hypnosis can help athletes:

  • improve their confidence and self-belief
  • remove negative thoughts or beliefs
  • increase motivation and dedication
  • use deep relaxation and concentration to imagine success
  • maintain composure and overcome distractions.

I recommend 2-6 sessions of Hypnotherapy and NLP depending on your goals and time scale to achieve them



Performing Arts
  • Auditioning
  • Rehearsal
  • Performance

All performers will admit struggling with stage fright as a one off or regular experience , anxiety before an audition, rehearsal or performance, this can be a combination of fears and anxieties and believe it or not excitement. However, all these states can trigger the autonomic nervous system into over drive with feelings of fight or flight that create :

  • Brain fog
  • Lack of focus
  • Heart palpitations
  • Dizziness
  • Lack of self belief and confidence
  • Self doubt
  • Fear of being judged


Hypnotherapy can help to relax and focus your mind, whilst training the subconscious mind into believing you have already succeeded at the event. Over a very short space of time this creates greatly renewed performance ability , self confidence and self worth ,the best outcomes you would hope to achieve.
