Fear of Public Speaking

Public speaking is a common source of stress for most people. Many of us would like to avoid this problem entirely, but find that this is hard to do.

Whether we work alone or with large numbers of people, eventually we will need to speak in public to get certain tasks accomplished. And if we want to be leaders or achieve anything meaningful in our lives, we will often need to speak to groups, large and small, to be successful.

The Fear of Public Speaking can manifest in many forms, (panic attack, performance anxiety, stage fright, blushing, fear of presenting etc) and is now recognised as the Greatest fear in America and the UK. Even more so than the fear of flying.
