You are not alone
Fear of public speaking is so common:
Public speaking is the number one issue that clients come to see me for. Even highly trained presenters and actors can get hit by public performance issues. Have you got a big work presentation pending or are you preparing for a job interview? Perhaps you’ve been asked to give a best man speech or your wedding day is blighted by panic around groom speech? Maybe you can’t answer the phone ( especially when the number isn’t known?). Or perhaps you want to date and lack the confidence to converse with a potential partner.
Glossophobia is said to affect women more than men, although interestingly it’s mostly men who come to me for help. The word “glosso” comes from the Greek meaning tongue because we literally become tongue-tied. Did you know that your tongue moves when you think? If you have an inner critical voice playing at the same time as you’re trying to speak in public, you metaphorically can trip over your tongue ( as it’s moving in different directions).
All the great speakers were bad speakers at first.
Can you recall an embarrassing event which pops into your head each time you think about having to speak in front of a group of people in the future? Are you gripped with panic and sheer fright at the prospect of a repeat performance? What steps are you taking to avoid the situation?
I know what this phobia feels like. Nowadays as a trainer, I stand in front of groups of people regularly. Because I’ve worked on this issue throughout my training, I relax into my presentations and actually enjoy them.
What's worse for you?
Is your speech worse in personal or professional situations? ( Or both?)
What's the history of the problem?
When did this issue become an issue?
