Performance SOS coaching


Do you want to be your best when it matters most?

You’ve become an expert. An expert at avoiding or dodging opportunities to stand up in front of people and share what you know. And there’s a good reason why you’ve avoided this situation for so long: the prospect of standing up at the front of the room fills you with dread.

Maybe you’re dreading:

  • The anxious thoughts and feelings that always dominate your life in the lead up to the event.
  • The prospect of nerves taking over physically whether it’s shaking, sweating, blushing, feeling sick or faint.
  • Forgetting your thread or ‘choking’.
  • Your audience disengaging and switching off.
  • The awareness of all eyes being on you.
  • Fear of judgement.
  • Beating yourself up afterwards when you don’t perform as well as you know you could.

I know how frustrating it is when you know deep down that you’re intelligent, knowledgeable and articulate and yet that all seems to go by the wayside when you’re required to perform under pressure. Whether the tipping point is 3 or 300 people: there comes a point when ‘something’ takes over and you feel hi-jacked by nerves and anxiety.

I’m here to let you know your fears around public speaking are completely natural. Most human beings have a degree of worry about standing up to perform; after all fear of public speaking is the second most common phobia in the UK.

Human beings are not rational. As much as 90% of what we think and feel is driven by our unconscious beliefs, memories and experiences. That’s why rationalising your way out of a fear is often ineffective. After all, if you could ‘decide’ not to be scared anymore, wouldn’t you just go ahead and do it? 

The great news is that you presenting nerves are not a fixed part of your personality. I can help you let go of the deeper beliefs and unconscious patterns that are driving your fear so you can feel comfortable and relaxed at the front of your room. With all that energy freed up, you can focus on what’s really important: serving you audience as powerfully as possible 

Your path to performance success

I offer performance programmes which vary in length and intensity (from a 2-hour ‘break-through’ session to a 4 month programme) depending on the level of change you want to experience and how much time you have before your event.

In all cases we work together on the areas you want to prioritise so that you feel as calm and confident as possible when you perform. You will let go of negative beliefs or fears that could be sabotaging your performance. You’ll also learn how to tap into positive emotions, such as calm and confidence and convey your ‘best version of yourself’ to whoever you are speaking to.

Because you’re able to communicate naturally and authentically, your optimum performance will follow so much more easily.

Prices start at £150 for a two hour ‘break-through’ session either in Manchester or online (Zoom or Skype). If you’re interested in how you could benefit, contact me today and we can arrange a completely free, no-obligation conversation.
