With news reports in the last few days revealing that Adele is suffering from Stage Fright at the thought of the forthcoming Oscars ceremony, it just proves that even the most talented performer can suffer from this very frustrating and debilitating condition.
For any artiste, whether a global superstar or an actor with a local amateur dramatics group, stage fright can prevent them from reaching their full creative potential. As the event draws near and the classic symptoms start to kick in, from a racing pulse and shaky hands through to amnesia when it comes to lyrics and lines, performers can be left feeling frustrated and highly critical of themselves as they recognise that something which feels out of their control is holding them back from reaching their true creative potential.
This can be particularly debilitating but with Cognitive Hypnotherapy it can be surprisingly easy and quick to change, leaving only the right level of nervous excitement or adrenaline that a performer needs to be able to deliver the optimum performance. Cognitive Hypnotherapy uses a range of proven techniques to quickly identify and respond to the actual psychological root causes rather than just generically treating the physiological symptoms. After just a couple of sessions, many performers report that they start to feel in control of their Stage Fright and more able to relax and enjoy their performances, confident that they are beginning to deliver to their potential.
