    I’m really anxious about public speaking. Really feel like I could do with some help. Confidence an issue. You heard the one about what lies at the bottom of the sea and shakes – a nervous wreck. Well that’s me when it comes to public speaking. No obvious reason for it I think – I’m reasonably presentable. fairly articulate and I write fairly well. So what the hell is wrong,….
    I will duck and dive to avoid these situations but really have to conquer the fear.
    I do have a mild form of dystonia which probably does not help as all my muscles get really tight when under a lot of pressure/stress.
    Anyway, your views re courses, etc, would be welcome.
    Regards,
    Francis

    • Hi Francis. Thanks for taking the time to respond and for the openness in the comments made. Three ‘potential’ cures (this is ‘fixable’). 1. Sign up for a commercially available programme. 2. Join Toastmasters (virtually free). 3. Get individual coaching on this topic (it’s one of the spaces where I work). I am in Portugal as we speak – back at end of the month – 087 2439019 – if you want more detail. I have seen people who were very nervous, morph into excellent presenters. There are a few simple ‘tricks’ of the trade which are easy to learn. Best wishes. Paul
