BIG NECK, NY, December 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The fear of being visibly nervous during public speaking renders many professionals, including top performers, impotent. Noticeably nervous includes panicking, sweating, blushing, stuttering, voice blocking, and dissociation. These symptoms are often driven by obsessive worry and perfectionism.
Jonathan Berent, explains LCSW “while there are endless options for public speaking support, there is very little actual clinical methodology available for public speaking anxiety disorder.” Berent has worked with literally thousands of people, including CEOs, entrepreneurs and professionals.
Berent adds “while many of my patients have reached the pinnacle of commercial success, many of those who have done well in treatment have said it was the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. they’re referring to is the process of introspection. It’s cross-training. Most people who suffer from it will do anything to avoid that dynamic that the response is all about technique. While technique is certainly important, groundwork , which is the process of identifying core emotions and channeling that energy, is the key to success.
In most cases, public speaking anxiety disorder increases over time. Berent explains that anxiety becomes a deeply rooted body-mind, or psychophysiological reflex. In many cases, patients enter treatment after becoming overly dependent on medication without any sense of a proactive therapeutic action plan.
