Conquer Public Speaking Phobias!

Fear of public speaking is one of the most common anxiety producing issues in the world. The National Institute of Mental Health reports that 74% of Americans suffer from some level of speech anxiety. In a world where our careers and sometimes our social lives are based on our ability to communicate effectively to others in front of groups, fear of public speaking is an increasingly troublesome issue for those who suffer from it. Like all phobias, the actual fear response is by definition completely disproportionate to the actual event.

Regardless of how bad a person feels a speech may go, it never justifies the level of panic and anxiety that those who suffer from a phobia of public speaking feel. The intense anxiety and feeling of panic that many experience before having to speak in front of others is the type of fear response that’s normally indicative of a true life-threatening event.

Whether you have a fear of giving speeches, work presentations, or even just speaking casually in front of a group of friends, everyone's public speaking phobia is unique.

Asher has helped many clients from a variety of backgrounds, each with their own individual reasons for fearing what they believe will be the ridicule they receive if they are forced to speak while being the center of attention. His process for overcoming their fear of speaking in front of others focuses on uncovering and treating the root cause, not just addressing the symptom.

Like most phobias, the fear of public speaking usually originates in childhood. However, while it sometimes begins with a negative experience of having to speak in front of others during school or in youth, quite frequently, the origin of public speaking fears does not stem from a specific traumatic instance of public speaking in childhood. Instead, it often arises from multiple other instances that impacted general self-esteem in ways that, at a subconscious level, became connected with public speaking. As an adult, this then translates into an intense fear that ranges from panicking about giving formal presentations at work to experiencing intense anxiety at the thought of even just speaking a few casual words in front of a group of close friends.

Phobias Are Rooted in the Deep Inner Mind and Healing them Requires a Subconscious Focused Solution

Because these childhood events and the beliefs that came from them are subconscious, working with a clinically qualified subconscious behaviorist and clinical hypnotherapist like Asher Fox is the best and fastest way of eliminating a fear of public speaking. Because the fear of public speaking is often based on deeper subconscious self-esteem issues, when these issues are resolved being able to speak in public is often only one of the many benefits. Quite frequently a generalized increase in self-esteem results that allows you to perform better in all areas of life.

    I had no idea what to expect. Was this going to work? Was I going to feel funny? Was I going to do things under hypnosis I didn't want to, or would I be vulnerable and uncomfortable? After working with Asher Fox - all I can say is it FAR exceeded my worrisome expectations. I don't know that I could explain how amazing this experience was in just one review. Regarding the experience: First and foremost - IT WORKED. I saw him for what used to be a very negative feeling about flying, that DOESN'T EXIST anymore. Asher was great at quickly getting to the root of my issue, helping me understand how the mind works and why it was an issue for me, we went through the hypnotherapy part and he even ended with anti-anxiety tips to help me ease any tension or emotions that could potentially be left over. The attention to my issue, ability to connect to the root cause, provide a swift solution, and personal attention throughout was incredible. I thought it would be some kooky thing that I would be afraid to tell my friends about - but I ended up bringing it up in almost every conversation after. If you are worried about being hypnotized - it is not what you think it is! Trust me. More than that - trust Asher. Regarding Asher: I love how clinical he approaches problems, solutions, and hypnotherapy. There wasn't incense, candles, and ohm-ing. There was straight talk about the brain, the process, the way forward. He was also very good at holding me accountable for my part in the issues, which I wouldn't have done on my own. He was more than just a hypnotherapist, he analyzed the issue as it related to life, my experience, and my hopes for the future. He was very easy going, made me comfortable immediately, routinely checked in to see how I was doing, and his follow up was outstanding. He is also very accommodating with appointment times. In sum - if you have an issue, ANY issue, bring it to Asher Fox. It will be solved. Not covered up, not brushed under the rug, not strewn aside. It will be rooted up from the core, addressed, and completely put behind you. Whatever your subconscious is doing to your conscious mind - he will bridge the two and HELP YOU MOVE ON.
