If speaking is something that you can do in front of the mirror or with one other person then you could speak to two or three or more people. The process of talking is identical, regardless of how many people there are.

The only difference is what you think about speaking to one person compared to twenty people. Most people aren't helped or trained in how to talk to groups of people. It is assumed that the more you do it, the easier it gets.

That is true... for some people but not all people.

How bad could a fear of speaking in public really be?

The people who have never had problems speaking publicly really don't get it when people struggle. They just don't understand how that situation could lead to the mental and physical anguish that public speaking leads to for some people.

There are all sorts of times and places when this fear can raise it's ugly head.

  • Education - if you are studying you may be asked to present something. This could be impossible for some. If part of your grade is dependent on it though, it could be the difference between passing and failing.
  •  Job interviews - Sometimes a job interview could have a speaking section. If you are going to have to talk to groups of people as a part of your job they may want proof that you can do the work required. Without this skill you could miss out on the job.
  • Weddings - Have you been asked to be the best man? Are you the father of the bride? Are you a bride-to-be and you want to thank everyone for coming but can't face the thought of it? Don't let your day be spoiled. Get help.

Hypnotherapy could be the way for you to take back control

I got in contact with Richard because I was struggling with confidence and anxiety around my placement as a student paramedic. I had previously been having CBT sessions, which were okay but not impactful enough for me. Whilst having an occupational health check, I was encouraged to try hypnosis, and a Google search later, I came across Richard. I was a little dubious at first, because I thought that I would not be able to go into trance and that it wouldn't work for me. But Richard had no doubt about the former. He talked me through all my questions and concerns and reassured me that if it wasn't for me, I would get my money back. He also highlighted to me that hypnosis is not a magic wand, it doesn't solve the problem for you; it gives you the tools to help you help yourself.Listening to Richard is like being immersed in honey; his words and the way he speaks makes you feel safe and calm. Being in a trance is like that period before you fall asleep. And it was so easy to get there. I was aware of everything at the time, but now I look back on it, I wouldn't remember the things that Richard was saying to me. If I wanted to move, I could have done, but I was so relaxed that I didn't even want to move my hand to scratch my nose. After every trance, I awoke feeling absolutely amazing and so good about myself.I don't feel like hypnosis particularly helped me when I think about it. However, it must have done, because I have since become a qualified paramedic. My mentor said that the change in my behaviour and confidence was profound. Maybe my conscious mind is unaware of the changes in my subconscious and that's why I don't feel different? I don't know how this stuff works, but I suppose it did! So, thank you Richard, you've helped me open the door to my brand new career.The only reason why Richard doesn't get 5 stars is because he forgot about one of our appointments and turned up 15minutes late, and I wasn't emailed a copy of our second recording session and was therefore unable to listen to it in my free more

I recently went to Richard for hypnotherapy because I was suffering crippling nerves and anxiety when attending job interviews. It was really affecting my ability to secure jobs at the interview stage because, although I was getting the interviews following what must have been good applications, I was not managing to get the jobs.I had three sessions and found them fantastic. In addition, Richard forwards his recording of the sessions afterwards in case anything has been missed whilst under hypnosis, and also giving time to reflect again and reaffirming what he said during the hypnosis.The interview I attended after the last session went well and I secured the job. I can’t say that I wasn’t still very nervous because I was, but I managed to calm myself using the techniques Richard recommended.I would not hesitate to recommend Richard and his hypnotherapy to anyone. If you are experiencing confidence or anxiety issues, I would say just go for it as you have nothing to lose and everything to more

The hypnosis completely turned around my mindset in just one hour - I couldn’t believe how effective it was! I had got very panicky about my driving test and when I broke down in a lesson a couple of weeks before my test, decided to get some help. Richard instilled me with confidence and I left feeling amazing, drove great and went to the test calm and prepared 🙂 He put so much energy into his voice and used how I already think to tailor the session to me. Thanks Richard for helping me pass my test!read more

I found Richard online and was eager to find a professionally qualified hypnotherapist. His website gave me all the information regarding his services and MOST importantly his professional qualifications and affiliations. After my free phone conversation with Richard I attended for an initial consultation where we discussed my needs and problems. I wanted additional confidence in the work place and for my hobby of singing and performing at the Lyceum. I have now finished my last session (of 3) and feel a great improvement. After the 1st session I had an audition and instead of being petrified I sailed through and got the part I wanted. At work I have been able to perform a disciplinary procedure without doubting my ability or authority and I perform better under stressful conditions. I even found the deep relaxation helped a very painful back spasm!! All in all a winner.Richard is thoroughly professional and adapts his technique and mannerisms to match the needs of his patients.If you're a skeptic Hypnotherapy may seem a bit "far out" when compared to traditional science and healthcare but it definitely works and proves that it really is mind over more

I was extremely impressed when I first met Richard, he was kind, informative and genuinely interested in my profession, we chatted for ages and there was no rush. I was in need of a therapy space to work privately and was definitely not dissapointed once shown round the rooms. They are spacious, well equiped and a competitive rate per hour. Richard even went the extra mile (after listening to how I work) by buying and placing something in one the rooms which I can use with my clients. He did not need to do this, but shows how much he cares about the professionals and clients who come to the Wellness Centre.I am thrilled to be using the rooms at the Wellness Centre and look forward to what they hold for my clients.Thank you Richard!!read more
