It is said that in the Western World the most common anxiety is the fear of standing up in front of people.

Performance Anxiety comes right under this banner of fears.


Whether it is a work presentation or as an actor or singer on a stage, you are not alone.  If you find yourself sweating and with shaking hands, knocking knees and a dry throat that makes you want to clear it and cough before presenting at work or standing on a stage to sing, dance, act or even accepting an award, you are in great company

Celebrities have often spoken out about their nerves when appearing in front of people.

Stars such as Cheryl Cole, Adele, Michael Ball, Jess Glynn and Katy Perry have had hypnotherapy session to help them deal with the anxiety of getting on stage.


My background was as a performer so through this I have worked with some famous names, although everyone I work with is confidential. It doesn’t matter if you are worried about performing at Wembley Arena or talking in a work presentation. When you work with me no one needs to know, unless you want to tell them of course.


Anxiety disorders can seriously impact your day to day life from school to work presentations, and even your personal relationships.  When you feel overwhelmed it is time to find a way to deal with it.
