..when I was young that I decided to write a book and create online courses that would help others who felt the same... other people who wanted help with speaking anxiety.
THIS is quite a long page please read it to the end......
I guess you'd like something that gives you confidence.
None of that 'imagine your audience in their underwear', personally I don't see that ever working!
When I was younger I was so terrified of speaking that I didn't speak to my teacher for a whole academic year.
I needed help with speaking anxiety
I wanted someone to tell me how to get the confidence to get the words out of my mouth.
I didn't want people to point at me and laugh when I spoke which is what I was convinced they would do.
My courses and book do just that - they explain how the sounds get out of your mouth and show you how to look and sound confident.
You might not be as frightened as I was, perhaps you can talk to your workmates but need to give a wedding speech or similar that is really worrying you.
Perhaps you want to have a head start in your speech class.
Do you know that what you wear affects the way you speak?...
and should you say sorry if you go wrong?
How good are you at
I used to answer questions in such a way that the conversation was over before it began and yet it's so easy to answer so that the conversation continues. Find out how in chapter 5.
I have to give a speech tomorrow - is it too late to do entol on the course or read this?
Now's the best part. The courses are only about an hour long and can be accessed immediately. The information in this book will make a difference immediately. Obviously, the more you practise the better you get but there are some things that don't need practise.
Having a conversation should always be fun. Think back to a time when you've been busy chatting to a friend and then suddenly realised you've been talking for 2 hours!
This course will show you how to feel confident when you are speaking and will give you some ideas for questions to ask or comments to make to get a conversation going or to keep a conversation going.
Now includes a section on speaking on the phone. Are you like I was? Terrified of the phone ringing incase you have to answer it or just praying and hoping that the person you need to contact has an email address or a contact page or live chat so that you don't need to use the phone?
This course is based on my knowledge as a highly qualified elocution teacher and on my own personal experiences of having what I can only call a phone phobia.
Using the phone is still not my first choice when it comes to but I do use the phone now with hardly any stress or anxiety and this course will talk you through the processes I use to achieve this.
