“Fear of Public Speaking”
“Since a young age, I have had a fear of public speaking.
I would do anything possible to avoid the pain of having to stand up and speak in front of others.
In times where it couldn’t be avoided, I would experience extreme anxiety for days before!
I had no control over the indescribable feeling of sickness in the pit of my stomach, or the pounding of my heart, nor the sweaty palms I would have for the entire time before and during my presentation. During my presentation I would lose concentration because of these symptoms and never felt I was presenting to my full capability.
I recently started a new career path, and much to my despair, presentations were going to be a part of it in order to be successful.
I felt I needed to do something about this fear in order to be successful in this new role.
I recently had a presentation approaching and of course was feeling very anxious and couldn’t handle the sick feeling anymore. So, I called Jim Ribau the day before my presentation. He invited me over to do some NLP Coaching with me. I didn’t even know what it was, however, trusted that Jim did.
Through my NLP coaching session, Jim was able help provide me with the tools and processes to help overcome and work through my fear.
As I left the session, I knew something had shifted immediately in my head because I felt different about the presentation I had to do the next day. Jim was able to help me control the effects of my fear and help me to find the confidence, trust, and belief in myself.
The next day, before and during my presentation, I wasn’t concentrating on the previous symptoms as they weren’t as overwhelming. I could now control them.
My presentation went amazing and I received many compliments!
All thanks to Jim’s work!!
Working with Jim Ribau has been one of the best decisions I have ever made!”
