Conquer Public Speaking Phobias!

Fear of public speaking is one of the most common anxiety producing issues in the world. The National Institute of Mental Health reports that 74% of Americans suffer from some level of speech anxiety. In a world where our careers and sometimes our social lives are based on our ability to communicate effectively to others in front of groups, fear of public speaking is an increasingly troublesome issue for those who suffer from it. Like all phobias, the actual fear response is by definition completely disproportionate to the actual event.

Regardless of how bad a person feels a speech may go, it never justifies the level of panic and anxiety that those who suffer from a phobia of public speaking feel. The intense anxiety and feeling of panic that many experience before having to speak in front of others is the type of fear response that’s normally indicative of a true life-threatening event.

Whether you have a fear of giving speeches, work presentations, or even just speaking casually in front of a group of friends, everyone's public speaking phobia is unique.

Asher has helped many clients from a variety of backgrounds, each with their own individual reasons for fearing what they believe will be the ridicule they receive if they are forced to speak while being the center of attention. His process for overcoming their fear of speaking in front of others focuses on uncovering and treating the root cause, not just addressing the symptom.

Like most phobias, the fear of public speaking usually originates in childhood. However, while it sometimes begins with a negative experience of having to speak in front of others during school or in youth, quite frequently, the origin of public speaking fears does not stem from a specific traumatic instance of public speaking in childhood. Instead, it often arises from multiple other instances that impacted general self-esteem in ways that, at a subconscious level, became connected with public speaking. As an adult, this then translates into an intense fear that ranges from panicking about giving formal presentations at work to experiencing intense anxiety at the thought of even just speaking a few casual words in front of a group of close friends.

Phobias Are Rooted in the Deep Inner Mind and Healing them Requires a Subconscious Focused Solution

Because these childhood events and the beliefs that came from them are subconscious, working with a clinically qualified subconscious behaviorist and clinical hypnotherapist like Asher Farris is the best and fastest way of eliminating a fear of public speaking. Because the fear of public speaking is often based on deeper subconscious self-esteem issues, when these issues are resolved being able to speak in public is often only one of the many benefits. Quite frequently a generalized increase in self-esteem results that allows you to perform better in all areas of life.

    When I came to Asher, I was in desperate need of relationship help. I was going through the worst time in my life. I didn't know what to expect or how it was going to work, but Asher is just amazing. He not only has been helping me through my separation, but he has also found other underlining issues that I never even thought was there. He is nothing but amazing and knowledgeable. I am still working through my issues but I am by far a lot better having Asher by my side. His expertise and mastery in his field has taught me to find strength and self-worth. Thank you Asher, you have definitely helped begin to shape my life to what it should be. I continue to look forward to treating with you. I highly recommend Asher to anyone looking to better themselves and their life.

    Working with Asher has been a wonderful experience. I haven't had more productive progress with anyone else in the field of therapy. Not only has he helped me, but he has also helped me and my wife in our relationship.

    My experience has also been very comfortable as Asher makes the process very simple and moves at a pace that is perfect for me. Very happy and grateful with everything about my work with Asher.


    I came to Asher one year ago because I wanted to lose 15-20 lbs. I had tried for around 20 years, off and on, to lose the 15-20 lbs without any significant progress. My sessions were mainly focused on me being in control of my eating and exercise habits. I immediately noticed results. Within the first week I was eating less and not feeling very hungry or feeling deprived of food. This alone was pretty amazing because have always put eating good food at a pretty high priority. Within a few months, I lost all of my goal weight and then some, and have kept if off for about a year now. In summary, I am very glad I have meet Asher and I would highly recommend Asher to anyone thinking about going to see him. I believe that Asher has chosen his profession because he truly wants to help and cares about people.
