Hypnotherapy for performance anxiety Kent .
There are many types of performance anxiety and it usually strikes when a person is required to perform to a certain standard in front of another person, or in front of a group of people.

How can Hypnotherapy for performance anxiety Kent help me with my problem?
Hypnotherapy for performance anxiety Kent is a hypnotherapy treatment plan designed to help shift your internal focus to an external focus, thus helping to eradicate your fear of performing.*
We will start with guiding you into a deep state of relaxation, in order to reduce your stress levels.*
Once we have achieved this wonderful state of calm and relaxation, under hypnosis we will guide you to a place where you will see yourself before, during and after your performance.*
Whatever the performance is, we will address the pre-performance nerves as well as performance nerves during the performance.*
We will rehearse the performance until you have done it perfectly.
We will then take you to a place where you are celebrating your success after the performance.
This simply means that we will re-condition your negative responses and negative self-talk under hypnosis so that you respond more positively to your situation and fears. When your subconscious believes that you can perform perfectly, the physiological responses do not occur which in turn reduces stress before and during the performance.*
Please note results may vary from person to person. There are never guarantees when undergoing any form of therapy and for this reason we do not offer any guarantees for any of our hypnotherapy services. *
