Performance Anxiety

When you think about presenting, do you start to sweat and feel sick? Have you made excuses and missed out on promotions so that you don't have to stand up in front of people? If so, you are not alone.  For many of my clients it has been a guilty secret for years.

Most of us get anxious at the thought of making a presentation to a large group of people but some even feel uncomfortable introducing themselves on one of those training courses where you sit round and wait your turn!

CBT for Performance Anxiety

CBT looks at and aims to change the unhelpful thinking patterns which maintain the anxiety.  This often includes "worse case scenario" thinking which activates the fight/flight response.  CBT teaches you to think in a more constructive way and also teaches you strategies to manage your physical responses.

QUIT DRINKING: "I decided to quit drinking for 'sober October'. So went to see Nicola. We had an in depth consultation and not only did I get through October without drinking. I now find I don't want to drink at all. I have been so pleased with the result and my life is getting better and better without Alcohol in it. I have recommended quite a few people now for different things. Thank you Nicola. " Clare
