Hypnotherapy in Adelaide
Why hypnotherapy? Does a rapid, non-addictive and safe alternative to medication sound worthwhile to you and your loved ones? If you saw yourself in the mirror after some hypnotherapy sessions and loved the new you, would that be valuable?
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnosis, otherwise known as Hypnotherapy, is an excellent treatment for anxiety, stress, motivation, depression and pain… to just name a few. Hypnotherapy experiences gently encourage the mind to relax. This is essential for allowing the hypnotherapist to speak directly to your unconscious, creating longer term positive changes in thinking patterns. Clients will leave the sessions already changed.
Hypnotherapy is a collaboration between client and therapist and requires a commitment to make positive change.
Remember that Liza offers a free 20 minute consultation session before your first Adelaide hypnotherapy session.
Hypnotherapy to Reduce Public Speaking Anxiety
How would it look if you were in front of a group of adults looking confident, relaxed and calm?
Would you feel on top of the world if you knew that public speaking is easy for you?
How would it sound if you could hear people congratulating you on your speech?
Have you heard this statement before? : “There are more adults around the world who fear public speaking than they fear death”.
That is a shocking statement.
A 1973 study was conducted which led to this well known statement, and it found that 41 percent of surveyed adults were afraid of public speaking, compared to just 19 percent who said they were fearful of death.
A more recent Gallup poll conducted in 2000 found 40 per cent of people said they feared public speaking as their number 1 fear before snakes, heights, being enclosed in small spaces, flying, getting injections and mice, to name a few.
Let’s do some role playing together. Imagine someone asks you to give a ten minute presentation to a room full of adults.”
How does this sentence make you feel?
Did it make you anxious?
Do feelings of anxiety wash over you?
There is something about public speaking that makes so many of us want to run for the hills, but why?
We know speaking in front of large groups won’t hurt us. We understand that talking out loud won’t have any bad consequences on our life, and yet we panic.
If we take a look back to early man in the Neolithic Era we can see where our fear of public speaking may have come from.
As there were so many predators around, man lived in large groups. Living together was safe, provided protection and ensured survival. If you were singled out from the group or left to fend for yourself then survival could seem bleak.
When standing in front of a large group your primitive instinct tells you that exactly this has happened. You are no longer part of the group and so the feelings of fear and anxiety are your bodies ways of preparing for survival.
How does Hypnotherapy work to treat and reduce anxiety around public speaking?
Let’s explain, in a state of hypnosis, our minds become much more receptive to new information. We listen to suggestions and we file those suggestions away into the subconscious where they’re much more likely to stick.
As such, hypnosis and hypnotherapy are popular tools for helping people overcome their fear of public speaking, because it empowers them to remove those automatic thoughts.
