Public Speaking without The Anxiety

Overcoming Public Speaking Anxiety,
Geelong Weekend Workshop

If the thought of public speaking fills your mind with dread, or thoughts of having a full-blown panic attack; you are not alone. If you experience symptoms such as: blushing, sweating, shaking, or feel your mind go blank before speaking publicly – help is just an event away.

If you’d like to stop missing out on career opportunities and cease being debilitatingly anxious whether it is at school, university, or work, then it’s time to consider what more can be done to help you get rid of all that anxiety.

If you’ve previously tried other public speaking courses but found them to be too anxiety provoking, or unsuited for your needs, consider attending a workshop that’s run by a clinical psychologist.

As a Clinical Psychologist, Catherine Madigan has helped countless patients overcome their fear of public speaking for more than 20 years. Using current research, Catherine Madigan takes an evidence-based approach to helping people overcome public speaking anxiety.

Whether you need to function better in a corporate environment, give a speech at a wedding, or do a presentation for university – this course will provide the information and feedback you need to decrease your anxiety.

Women are more likely to have an anxiety disorder than men, 18% vs 11%. ABS National Survey of Mental Health & Wellbeing, Summary of Results 2007.

Anxiety or fear is a normal response to a present or imagined threat. Mild fear can be helpful as it enables us to respond quickly when faced with a dangerous situation and to be alert in difficult situations (e.g. exams). However, excessive fear may lead to people being paralysed e.g. soldiers under attack may be so afraid they can’t move to take cover, public speakers may find they go blank, forget their lines and are rendered speechless.

Anxiety is a normal emotion as it affects most people and is widespread. You would be abnormal if you didn’t experience fear sometimes. However, if your anxiety is out of proportion to the situation you are experiencing and/or persists in the absence of threat, e.g you worry about events months ahead or are experiencing anxiety long after the danger has passed, you may need professional help.

Some people are more prone to experiencing anxiety than others and it is not caused by just one thing but by a combination of factors including: genetics, family environment and traumatic life experiences. Sufferers may have unhelpful thinking patterns such as perfectionist standards. Nevertheless, you can learn to manage your anxiety more effectively.
