Public Speaking can be one
of the most frightening experiences for anyone – even those who are normally confident. This is one
"I am writing in response to
my recent visit to see Julie inLeeds. I had a very distressful
experience at work when asked to do a very simple task of introducing myself in a
Very strange as I am a very
confident person but for some reason just got up and walked out of the meeting. For a number of years
I have dodged various situations due to my negative experience. But like most things it eventually
catches up and I had to face my public speaking fear in probably one of the most intense situations
- Crown Court. I would just like to add I was not the criminal but a key witness.
Like anyone with a fear I had
tried every method - mainly avoidance - and went to see Julie as an act of desperation as my
anxiety coming closer to my court appearance was ridiculous.
Due to my circumstances Julie
agreed to see me at very short notice. I found Julie to be very calm and relaxing and explained
everything in its simplest term.
Now to the best bits! I
went into the hypnosis session and was conscious of everything Julie asked me to do and was always
aware of my surroundings this lasted for about 45mins. After the session I felt bright and confident and
left feeling more positive. However coming closer to my court appearance I did get the same anxiety
feelings but a lot more manageable and when the big day arrived I just got up and did what was
AMAZING there is no way I
would have ever gone into court never mind stand up. I can’t describe how you feel as it’s not a feeling
but any old ways just disappeared.
I would not write this if I
felt Julie’s techniques did not work but it’s this simple - they do. So if you’re reading this
at home deciding what to do then please, please, please go and see her because whatever anxiety that
you have it really does not have to control what you do anymore."
