If you have a fear of public speaking, know that you are not alone. In fact, speaking in front of a large group is an extremely widespread fear, and one that can be so intense that some people are more afraid of public speaking than of death!
Most people feel stress at the thought of public speaking, though people who are afraid of speaking in front of a group may experience many physical symptoms that include –
•Sweating and Shaking
•Unsteady Voice and dry mouth
Hypnosis can help reprogram your mind and facilitate behavioral change.

When it comes to public speaking, hypnosis can be a very powerful tool in overcoming fear. Hypnosis is designed to change the way you perceive things by putting you into a very relaxed state. During this state, you are fully in control, highly focused, and receptive to positive suggestions. If you can change the way you react to the experience of speaking in front of large groups of people, you will no longer fear it.
Fears tend to result from three main life events or experiences. They include trauma, parental impact on childhood, or observing something terrifying. These factors can cover a very wide range of experiences. The root cause of the fear likely stems from a childhood experience. This experience must be reframed so that the subconscious mind understands that the flight response or fear is no longer necessary.
Various triggers can set off your fear, but your reaction in some instances can be delayed so that you react to something else entirely. Often times, clients are surprised to discover what the initial fear inducing event is, because at face value it does not seem to have a direct connection to the fear. However, there is always a connection although it may not be obvious initially.
Hypnosis is a natural state, that when achieved, allows your hypnotist to access your subconscious mind. When you watch a movie, read a book, or focus on a project at work and lose track of time, you are experiencing hypnosis. Once a client is guided into hypnosis, we at the NY Hypnosis Institute can then give positive suggestions directly to the subconscious mind.
However, this anxiety isn’t just physical. With a fear, your subconscious mind takes over. Your subconscious is like the hard drive on your computer; it records every memory and every experience you’ve ever had – even if you don’t actually remember them all!
Chances are something in your past is to blame. However, it’s not uncommon for the subconscious mind to blow things out of proportion, so you may not even remember the past event that has led to your current fear! Your public speaking fear could be a result of having to give an oral report in school that you weren’t prepared for, or even something as minor as watching someone else struggle through a speech.
Instead of seeing those types of things as isolated incidents, your subconscious is convinced that the same embarrassment and awkwardness will happen again if you have to speak in public – so it responds with those strong physical and emotional symptoms.
So how will public speaking hypnosis counteract all of that?
During a New York Hypnosis Institute public speaking hypnosis session, you can identify the event from your past that has been blown out of proportion. Your hypnotist can then reframe the way your subconscious mind perceives that event, allowing the fear and anxiety to be released. Essentially your hypnotist will teach your subconscious that those negative experiences from your past have nothing to do with your speech or presentation today.
In addition, during a New York Hypnosis Institute public speaking session, your subconscious can be trained to associate speaking in public with positive emotions – instead of the negative ones it is currently falling back on. By teaching your subconscious to react to public speaking with happiness and excitement, you can take the stage with confidence, a strong voice, and a sincere smile!
A New York Hypnosis Public Speaking session can retrain your mind to:
Eliminate your old public speaking fear
Provide you with the right level of adrenalin and excitement
Allow you to actually enjoy giving presentations
Utilizing hypnosis, public speaking can actually become something you enjoy!
