Some anxiety is actually normal, particularly if we’re doing something that we’re not familiar with or perhaps doing something for the first time. When we become anxious, our bodies respond by releasing chemicals such as adrenaline which give us extra energy to respond to the situation. In the right quantities, a little anxiety actually helps us to stay focused, but if this brief period of anxiety persists or develops any further, it can begin to affect our confidence and our performance.

If you have a presentation to give in the near future, then you may have already started to do some preparation to make sure that you’re ready for the big day. When we have an event to prepare for, we often put pressure on ourselves to get things right first time and the same is often true of public speaking. Hypnotherapy can help you to stay calm and focused so that you can be confident, think more clearly and be more relaxed on the day of your presentation.
