Feeling nervous is natural and a few nerves can actually enhance a performance, however if performance fear is affecting you to such a high degree that you are avoiding certain situations or are unable to succeed at work then it is time to tackle the fear.
Often the fears we have are born during childhood or early life and they simply embed themselves in our minds only to resurface as an irrational fear later on in life. Perhaps a parent or a friend subjected you to ridicule after a performance and now you have severe low self esteem as a result. An emotional experience such as that could easily produce an unreasonable fear of a similar situation.
So the question is how does a person resolve this issue?
Hypnotherapy works by helping a person to retrain their unconscious mind. This is the part of your mind which houses all those negative past emotions and memories which are preventing you from performing and can be accessed and adapted when a state of relaxation and focus is achieved.
A hypnotherapist will help individuals to identify the event that has been causing their fear and will then help them to erase this using methods such as positive suggestion and visualisation.
