Hypnosis For Performance
Hypnosis can help you perform.
Whether you’re giving a business presentation, taking an exam, performing on stage, competing in a professional sport, meeting with a boss, or giving a toast at a wedding, we all have to perform sometimes. And we can all experience a little “performance anxiety.”
When the moment comes, it’s common to experience symptoms of stress or worry. These include a dry mouth, sweating, an an increased heart rate. When we should be performing at our best, we might appear nervous. We might feel that we have to apologize for our performance in advance. Or we might forgetting what we need to say or what we had practiced. All of this is quite normal, though it’s very unhelpful.
Worse, not knowing how to cope with stage fright, some people try to boost their courage in inappropriate ways. (Think of the young man who needs to drink alcohol to ask someone out on a date, or the person giving a toast who’s had an extra glass of wine before standing up to speak — this never makes anyone appear more confident, of course; quite the opposite.)
Overcome Stage Fright
Hypnosis can help you prepare for your performance. Hypnosis will help you to relax, cope with stress before and during your your time to perform, counter defeatist thoughts, focus your attention, and be at the top of your game.
In our session, we will use hypnosis as well as a range of other techniques to help you prepare for, and conquer, your performance. These include:
- Calming breathing techniques.
- Confident posture.
- Planning, visualization, and mental rehearsal.
- Positive self-talk.
Results may vary from person to person.
