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 seeking help, I needed more help than the regular medical doctors were giving me. So far this site has helped me to look deep into myself and try figure out the root of my issues. It is not going to be an easy road, dealing with my emotions and such, but the therapist assigned to me has been gracious and very helpful."

"This program has been beneficial to me.
The videos and worksheets have been especially helpful.

I chose not to have live chats with my therapist, but I feel her written notes and encouragement to me were beneficial. I moved along a lot faster in the program over the course of a full month than the feedback I’ve gotten. To be fair, I did sessions 6-8 all this weekend, so she hasn’t had time to review. I was through session 5 by last weekend and devoted a lot of time to one part of the session and would love to have had comments through as far as I’d completed. My latest feedback at the end of this final week of my month-long subscription is still just through session 2. At least that’s all I can find. I have implemented and practiced all the suggestions and and completed all of the exercises except for one that I skipped on purpose. My current subscription expires in two days.

I wish there were a search feature for therapist feedback and maybe there is, but I don’t see one. It can be a little tedious going back to each worksheet to find something I want to comment on if I didn’t do it initially. I don’t care for the Action Plan calendar. It’s not user-friendly. I’d like to copy one day’s actions to another day without having to start over. It’s too time consuming. Some days I do the same things. The Notes app on my phone is a lot easier to use and I can record what I need to do with with audio.

I’m on the list to work with a local CBT specialist in my area. So, I signed up for this program to do in the interim while I was waiting for my first appointment with her. I’m not going to continue with the online program, but I’m grateful for it and for what I’ve learned and for the fact that it helped me learn about new ways to challenge my thinking and re-channel it to more positive thoughts that bring about better behavior. I will continue to use what I’ve learned, particularly journaling and re-directing my thinking. I already do yoga and meditate. I recommend giving this program a try if you’re not sure. I’d do it again.
