Hypnosis for Public Speaking Fears and Stage Fright
By Hypnotherapist Bill Engle, winner of the National Collegiate Public Speaking Championships
Jerry Seinfeld said, “According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two. Does that sound right? This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.”
Mark Twain, “There are two types of speakers: Those who get nervous and those who are liars.”
So, to begin with understand You are not alone in this quandary. Look around your world and count the number of confident public speakers and you’ll find you can do it on one hand. Many who are hesitant to contribute to group meetings until the 3rd time, or later, also suffer from social anxieties. Of course, those who include social anxieties in the mix have a difficult time inter-acting with even one new person. This can all be helped with hypnosis.
Where Do Public Speaking Fears Come From?
That’s where hypnosis/hypnotherapy help for public speaking comes to the rescue. Removing the anxieties and replacing them with an energized, but calm confidence. Giving you the pleasure of speaking in front of others, with one or a large group. Sharing information with self-confidence. All behaviors are learned behaviors and so is your fear. So, if you’ve had a previous bad experience when making a presentation, your subconscious mind will try to protect you from another bad experience. How does it accomplish this? Your anxieties increase, your palms begin sweating, you can feel your heart pounding, for some reason you forget what you had to say, and you just know before you say your first word you’re being judged by the audience of one or many. Your inner-voice urges you to run like hell. It needs to save you.
Mary Jo Eliminates Her Fear of Public Speaking
Interviewer: Okay, I'm sitting here talking with Mary Jo. Mary Jo is coming into me for another reason today but we had a short conversation about what she had been in to see me before that was good for. So could you tell me a little bit about that Mary Jo?
Mary Jo: Yes, I had to do a large presentation to a large group of people, probably over 100 people were in the room. So I had to be up on stage and I had a fear of public speaking and was very nervous. And worked with you and through the hypnosis when I got up on stage I felt totally comfortable and confident, spoke very clearly, felt right at home actually.
Interviewer: Well that's great, do you continue with those good feelings now?
Mary Jo: I still get the burst of energy before getting up there but once I'm up there and get going I'm doing okay.
Interviewer: Yeah, well that part is good for us, we need that little burst of energy to get going. Okay, thank you.
How Edgar Got Rid of His Fear of Public Speaking
Interviewer: Well Edgar has been gracious enough to sit in with us today and talk to us about his experience with hypnotherapy as related to public speaking. So perhaps you can tell us a little bit about it Edgar.
Edgar: Sure, what's happened is I was very afraid of public speaking. I was terrified. I skirted out 00:19 to stand up within a group of people and I couldn't talk. I had this knot in my stomach and it didn't allow me to speak. I started sweating, and when I looked around the group and I saw everyone looking at me. I just feel like I was being judged and I feel like I was being criticized. I made words because I was so nervous I couldn't speak clearly, and I forgot what I wanted to say. So it was to the extent where I was even afraid of coming to Bill and telling him about my fear.
Interviewer: That's great, well how do you react now?
Edgar: It's I just made a 180 degree turn. After a few sessions I was able to use what I felt inside tours towards me speaking. I was using more of us a positive energy rather than being scare or afraid of speaking in front of public.
Interviewer: Oh that's great, and so I guess it helped you in your presentation skills with your business?
Edgar: It has, it has helped me not only for myself but it has… I managed a group of salespeople and so it's helped me also coach them, mentor them and has helped me be very positive as far as my attitude goes when I'm speaking about the goals and the objectives for the month and for the year.
Interviewer: Oh, that's absolutely wonderful. So let me ask you a question Edgar, would you recommend anyone using hypnotherapy for any behavior modification they might have?
Edgar: I wouldn't think about it, I wouldn't even think about it. I would give it a try, even if you're skeptical. I would just come and try it out and see for yourself what I've experienced.
Interviewer: Okay, well thank you very much Edgar, really appreciate you coming by.
Edgar: Thank you.

How Can Hypnosis Help Me With My Anxieties
- Using a modality called Energy Therapy, I would find and remove past negative memories related to public speaking. This process has been 100% successful in this and it is the quickest way possible to erase the negative imprints in your subconscious mind. This is done while you are completely awake.
- I teach my clients how to use this method if suddenly speaking at a new venue or if something is suddenly out of the ordinary, to maintain calm and focus. It’s easy to learn, but profound in its effect.
- After that area is completed, I place the client in a light trance. This is done either at my office or over Skype or other platforms. My success rates online duplicate my success rates in office.
- While in trance, the client is deeply relaxed and I bypass the critical area of the mind (that part that always says, “No you can’t”), and give suggestions directly into the subconscious mind.
- In this deep state of relaxation, you use your own inner-mind heal yourself, easily and effortlessly, while you relax.
- Most fear of public speaking issues take no more than two to three sessions.
- You will increase your value as a communicator, both professionally and personally.
Can I be Hypnotized To Overcome Speaking Fears?
First of all, we all go into hypnosis several times a day. Have you ever been driving on the freeway and suddenly you realized you’ve passed your off-ramp? You were on “auto-pilot” and your subconscious mind was doing the driving for you based on the training you have stored. Auto-pilot is hypnosis by definition. Anytime you leave the “in-time” state and go into another state, like daydreaming, or reading a great book, or watching a sports program… you are in hypnosis.
I’ve had people ask me, “Is it true that only weak-willed people are hypnotized?” No, actually the opposite is true. The stronger your will, the stronger your mind, the faster, the easier you go into hypnosis. If you have a good imagination, hypnosis is perfect for you. I will be there to guide you through the entire process. You will delight in releasing these burdens. Maybe the one fear that has held you back in business, or in personal life.
