Therapy For Help With Public Speaking
Confidence, Motivation, Low Self-Esteem
Feeling nervous is a natural emotion and for lots of people when kept in perspective, these feelings actually help to motivate us and focus our minds. However, if these feelings become intense and overwhelming, they can threaten our performance and even cause us to achieve below our true potential.
Interview, Exam or Public Speaking nerves can affect anyone, no matter how clever they are or how much they have prepared. There is a great emphasis in today’s society to succeed and this is often used to measure an individual’s ability (e.g. for certain jobs, to drive a car, performance in the work place etc.) and the pressure of this can be overwhelming. Nerves can become out of control and can affect our ability to focus, create anxiety, stress or panic attacks, creating a vicious circle leading to more intense nerves. This can have a negative impact on our unconscious mind and lead to more general, longer term performance-based anxiety. These feeling of anxiety can cause negative perceptions of ourselves and become barriers to our success because our thoughts influence our behaviour, and if we think we are likely to fail then we probably will. Of course, the reverse also holds true.
Feeling calm, relaxed, focused and confident when studying and sitting the exam or preparing for an interview or speaking in public means you will be much more likely to achieve your full potential. Accessing this state of mind is a skill and can often be learned by implementing new ways of thinking using different techniques.
I use a range of therapies tailored to meet your individual needs which can help you to change and redefine your perceptions of your own abilities and resources, increase your confidence and change the negative perceptions you might have of yourself. This can have a tremendous effect on the way you think and therefore the way you behave, helping you to change your behaviour and achieve your goals allowing you to be able to do the things you want to do.
Anticipate success and success can be yours!
