Do these thoughts sound familiar?


  • What is wrong with me, why do I get so nervous before a meeting/presentation?
  • How can I get out of going to that meeting/giving that presentation?
  • Why can’t I handle meetings/speaking confidently like everyone else seems to?
  • Why do I waste so much time dreading the event, tossing & turning, not sleeping and then it often goes better than I thought it would… ?
  • Why does my voice shake/my hands tremble/my face go red? It’s so obvious I am nervous!
  • What happens if I just freeze and no words come out?
  • I am so embarrassed, everyone must be able to see what a mess I am..
  • Will I ever be able to get over this?
  • If I don’t get a handle on this I may have to leave my job…


If so you are not ALONE!


In my work as a Clinical Hypnotherapist I hear intelligent, capable, highly successful people who excel in their work think these very same thoughts. Many outwardly, seemingly confident people are struggling on the inside and exhausted before, during and after they speak in public.

In the workplace and social gatherings many people hide their nerves and as a result you may think you are the only one who dreads speaking in public. In fact the fear of public speaking is one of our greatest fears ever…. I will help you to understand WHY YOU feel the way you do and HOW you can change it.

On public speaking Fiona says: 

“I really understand the anxiety many people suffer from when it comes to speaking in public.  The fear can be crippling and really affect the person’s ability to progress not just in their career but also the impact it has on their personal lives.  Before I became a Clinical Hypnotherapist (almost ten years ago) I worked as a professional actress. It was on the stage and in front of the camera where I first learnt the art of managing fear and speaking confidently.  However, it is in my later work as a corporate speaker, regular media contributor,  key note and TEDx speaker that I elevated this skill and learnt the true power of communicating with purpose. 

Today I love all forms of presenting and want to share both my personal experience and also my deep understanding from a therapeutic perspective to help you shine online or off, to one person or thousands.”
