For those looking to advance personally and professionally, the fear of public speaking, or glossophobia, can be a formidable barrier. Public speaking anxiety can make people feel anxious and self-conscious. Even paralysing you when giving speeches in front of an audience, whether at work or at social gatherings. Fortunately, hypnotherapy can be a potent tool for overcoming public speaking anxiety and boosting social confidence.

In this article, we'll look at how hypnotherapy can help people gain confidence, overcome their fear of public speaking, and improve their communication abilities.

Hypnosis for confidence

Hypnotherapy induces heightened awareness using directed relaxation, intense concentration and focused attention. This enables people to access their subconscious mind. This is where deeply ingrained beliefs and emotions are kept. People can identify and reframe unhelpful beliefs that are preventing them from reaching their goals.

A hypnotherapist will help people change their negative self-talk during hypnotherapy sessions. For instance, advice like "I am confident and capable," or "I am worthy of success" may be given to someone who lacks confidence. With the aid of these positive affirmations, the subconscious mind can be reprogrammed to establish fresh patterns of thought, feeling, and behaviour.

Most people have a recurring looping thought about confidence. The aim of the hypnotherapy session is to disrupt this thought and stop the chain of events.

For example, you might think, " I am not good enough to talk in front of all these people". You then feel that you are not worthy of talking to them. Which leads you to panic and question yourself. Filled with fear, you walk away in a cold sweat. Now you are right back at the thought of " I am not good enough".

Fear of public speaking

One of the most prevalent fears among adults is glossophobia. Anxiety about public speaking can manifest physically as shaking, sweating, and nausea. It can even range from mild apprehension to severe panic. Fear of rejection, failure, or judgement is often linked to public speaking phobia.

One way to combat this is to speak in front of smaller groups first, perhaps even a small group of family or friends. You can build yourself up to face larger groups. This approach might take too long. This is where hypnotherapy can be beneficial as it can boost your confidence in 1 to 3 sessions.

You were born loaded with confidence. By addressing the underlying causes of anxiety, hypnotherapy can be useful for overcoming a fear of public speaking by discovering the root cause. A hypnotherapist can assist people in recognising and reframing unfavourable beliefs about public speaking. Hypnotherapy can assist people in developing new behavioural, cognitive, and emotional patterns. This will boost self-assurance and lessen anxiety by gaining access to the subconscious mind's deeper levels.

Overcoming Social Anxiety

We're wired to find connection and to avoid rejection. When we are expecting rejection in a social setting, intense fear or discomfort in social situations are symptoms of social anxiety, also referred to as a social phobia. People who struggle with social anxiety may act avoidantly and isolate themselves because they feel uncomfortable, awkward, or judged in social settings.

 By assisting people to reframe their thoughts and beliefs about social situations, hypnotherapy can be a useful tool for overcoming social anxiety. A hypnotherapist can assist patients in recognising negative thought patterns and changing them with uplifting affirmations during hypnotherapy sessions. Deep breathing, encouraging self-talk, and relaxation methods are just a few of the coping mechanisms that hypnotherapy can assist people in learning to manage their anxiety in social situations.

Giving Speeches with Impact

Hypnotherapy is a useful tool for people who need to give persuasive speeches or presentations. The fear of failure or rejection is frequently a factor in public speaking anxiety, which can contribute to trepidation, self-doubt, and lack of confidence. You can stop avoiding situations. Start living a fuller life by altering the associations you make between pain and pleasure and by realising that no one can reject you.

Speech delivery will be easier and more effective for those who receive hypnotherapy's assistance in cultivating a more upbeat, self-assured mindset. In a hypnotherapy session, a hypnotherapist can lead clients through visualisation exercises, which can boost self-assurance and lessen anxiety. These visualisations can include, visualising a polished presentation or getting encouraging feedback.

You can boost your confidence and lessen your fear of public speaking by repeatedly visualizing success.

positive affirmations

Positive affirmations

Positive affirmations can be used during hypnotherapy sessions to reinforce optimistic thoughts and beliefs about oneself and one's capacity for public speaking. To help reinforce a positive outlook, these affirmations can be repeated both during the session and between sessions.

Cognitive restructuring

Negative thought patterns and self-defeating beliefs are frequently linked to public speaking anxiety. By identifying and swapping out these unfavourable thoughts for positive ones during hypnotherapy, one can approach public speaking with greater assurance and optimism.

sense of control


Teaching a client self-hypnosis skills so they can use them outside of sessions is a common component of hypnotherapy for public speaking and confidence. This can include relaxation and visualisation techniques to ease anxiety and boost confidence before speaking in front of an audience.

All things considered, hypnotherapy can be a potent tool for boosting self-esteem and overcoming social anxiety. People can learn to feel more at ease and confident when speaking in front of others by addressing their unhelpful thought patterns and beliefs. They can achieve this by employing strategies like relaxation, visualisation, and positive affirmations. Hypnotherapy can assist people in reframing negative thoughts by reaching deeper levels of the subconscious mind.
