Long before you and I started working together last year, two things were certain:
1.) I had a VERY severe fear of public speaking and
2.) This fear was a restraining factor for me – both professionally and personally. For years, I did everything conceivable to avoid speaking while standing. I then tried several commonly-touted remedies, including immersion and controlled breathing. None of these worked and, the entire time, my confidence continued to plummet.
Fortunately for me, I found your No Sweat Speaking website. Your individualized approach to coaching and your out of the box techniques for reducing fear and anxiety have been real life savers for me! I was amazed to see—after just a few short, personalized coaching sessions—such a drastic reduction in my speaking fear. Today, I’m pleased to report that I’m fear free. In fact, I’ve given four formal presentations all while standing. They all went well!
I’m so pleased with my progress that I’ve decided to extend our relationship beyond the terms of our original agreement. In so doing, I’m very much looking forward to continuing to become a better, more confident speaker/presenter with each and every session.
