Confetti time & the dreaded speech!

With the wedding season now in full swing for the next couple of months, many grooms, best men and brides may be feeling anxious, even terrified, about giving a speech to a room full of family, friends and colleagues. Indeed some may even have nightmares about it – that’s how terrifying some people view the idea of public speaking.

If that sounds like you – you are not alone! Public speaking is one of the most common fears and it can even put some people off the idea of getting married if they know their partner is set on a traditional wedding reception. As a cognitive hypnotherapist I have worked with a number of people over the last couple of years that have come to me for help with this particular issue.

Whether you are just feeling a bit apprehensive or whether you are quaking at the thought of giving a speech, why not do yourself a favour and get some help. As well as helping you learn some relaxation techniques, I can help you focus on what you want rather than what you don’t want so that you can feel really positive about your wedding speech and look forward to what is one of most special days of your life.

If you are getting married in the near future then throughout July and August I am offering my hypnotherapy and NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) sessions at the discounted rate of £50 per session for any member of a wedding party who is planning on giving a speech but needs some extra help. Most people will only need two or three sessions and I will also prepare a bespoke CD for you so that you can continue to reinforce positive suggestions to your brain right up until your big day!

If you would like to book a session or would like to find out more about hypnotherapy and NLP then call me on 07703 211449 or send an email to You can also visit my website for more information. One more thing, some people think that having hypnotherapy means they will not be in control. Quite the reverse – hypnotherapy is all about empowering you, giving you control so that you can think and feel the way you want.
