Overcome Your Speech Anxiety with Online Therapy

Category: Speech anxiety | Last updated: October 18th, 2018 | Reviewed and approved by:

Picture this: you're standing in front of a crowd on the stage. All of a sudden the palms of your hands start to sweat. You feel anxious, nervous and like the whole world is staring at you and waiting for you to make a mistake. You fear that people will judge you. You fear that people will see you as a weak person who is a failure. Sounds familiar?

Feeling anxious about speaking in public is very common. In fact, most of us experience, at some point in our life, discomfort when speaking in front of a group of people. But if you feel that this fear is limiting you and causing you to miss out on opportunities in social, academic or job sectors, then you might be suffering from speech anxiety.

No matter how long you have experienced this, or what you may have done in the past to overcome it, there is hope! Our therapy for speech anxiety is based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). You see, it is your automatic negative thoughts and perceptions about yourself and others that cause your fear of speaking in front of other people. Our speech anxiety online therapy program will provide you with insightful knowledge about glossophobia (speech anxiety) as well as how to control your anxiety. Your therapist will teach you techniques like cognitive restructuring (changing what you brain says to you), meditation, positive mental visualization and other valuable skills to help you combat your negative thinking. Each time you practice these techniques, you will find it easier to take control of your life and your speech anxiety. You will get useful tips on how to work in a group of people, with the aim of getting you comfortable with making your voice heard in front of others.

"I have been using Online Therapy for just over a week and so far am very happy with the service and my therapist. She has been providing regular feedback and adjusting her recommendations based on my progress (or lack of). While I have been a bit slow to discover other aspects of the site (journal, yoga, meditation), this is something that I plan to start this week. I'm looking forward to my first chat tomorrow."

"I have completed the eight sessions of online cognitive behavior therapy with Maggie Sweet as my therapist. This was my first time with an online therapy. I have given the experience five stars because the program and its format met and exceeded my expectations.
One thing I did not expect was the reciprocal nature of the client/therapist interaction, as far as receiving messages on worksheets that I completed on my own time. In my previous (in person) therapy experiences, I would do my work on my own and meet with my therapist once a week or less. We didn’t have much more contact than that. That frequency of service worked for me, so having quick responses to my online work was something I had to adjust to. At first it felt pushy but I used the novelty of the experience to challenge my commitment to my goals in seeking therapy. So, in that way, my experience with Maggie exceeded my expectations.
The online format has so many advantages that the inherent problems seem minimal. One thing I would change is to have a way to easily download worksheets in a .pdf format, or possibly upload them to a cloud storage, if copyright is an issue. Also regarding the internet format, I had one live chat experience that was interrupted by what appeared to be a connectivity issue. I was allowed to make up that session.
I would recommend this service for persons who have the therapeutic needs described in the organization’s information.
