What a Hypnotherapist Can Teach You About Stage Confidence
As a hypnotherapist I have helped thousands of clients to increase confidence for the delivery of presentations, stage confidence and for anytime you are the center of attention.
I am always surprised about the amount of people who fear public speaking. In many poles, public speaking is often voted more fearful than spiders, heights and even death.
Why do people fear public speaking? Often your first introduction to orating creates your frame of reference. For many this frame of reference is created when you are asked in school to read in front of the class. This new experience creates fear which is only increased when your classmates start to titter and laugh.
When you are asked to speak in front of a class as an adult, you remember this negative experience. Because anxiety is the frame of reference to public speaking, to increase confidence all you need to change is the emotional association.
This article will teach you three simple ways to evolve fear into focused confidence

Changing Your History
Memories are manipulated
It is well known that many of our memories have been distorted. For many stage phobics they remember a time when they were highly embarrassed on stage.
To delete this fear you need to manipulate the associated memory. First change the emotion attached to this memory. Imagine yourself in the same situation but feeling relaxed, see yourself stood in a relaxed stance and notice everything, all those little quirks, that you have when you are relaxed and confidence.
Next turn your attention to the audience. Imagine the audience being in s state of intrigue. See each audience member listening, nodding along with you, even laughing at your well timed jokes.
This new memory is you at your best, you feeling relaxed, you at your most confidence.
Replay this memory over and over again in your mind’s eye, until when you think of public speaking your new frame of reference is this new confident memory.
When you feel anxious where does this feeling originate from inside of you? Do you feel it in your stomach, chest or head?
Does your feeling of anxiety travel up or down? Does it spin forwards or backwards? What colour is your anxiety feeling?
Once you are aware of the submodalities of your anxiety feeling, you can then take control and make a real change.
Next imagine pushing this spinning feeling of anxiety outside of you, so you can see it spinning in front of you. Now, flip this feeling back on itself, so it spins in the opposite direction.
Spin it faster and faster until the feeling changes colour. At this stage push it back inside yourself replacing the old feeling, and allow it to continue to spin this way inside of you.
Think about this feeling and notice how different you feel.
Kill the Never in Your Head
Most nervous public speakers have a devil in their head, whispering negative affirmations that increase fear.
You need to destroy the negative self talk. Confident orators only speak positively to themselves, stating their strengths, skills and abilities.
Focus on the negative self talk. Hear the words you say to yourself. Turn the words from auditory to visual; see the words in front of you. Become aware of the font, size and colour of the negative self talk.
Imagine the words visually coming out of your mouth. As they release from your mouth imagine them becoming weak, floppy, see them drop to the floor and smash into millions of pieces.
By manipulating the words you say to yourself you will manipulate the associated emotional response.
