You might be surprised but the fear of public speaking is one of the greatest causes of panic
attacks. It's almost ridiculous to think that basically some people would rather be in a coffin than
reading a eulogy. For people who suffer fear of public speaking, the anticipation of the event can
lead to panic attacks weeks or months before.

Such fear of public speaking may be as basic as a meeting with the office- not necessarily on a
podium giving a speech. The fear of public speaking and panic attacks in this case is based on
having an attack in the middle of the talk. The person imagines being stuck for words, and being
forced to flee the office, much to the amazement of fellow workers.

There is a difference between having a fear of public speaking because of suffering panic attacks,
and just a general shyness of speaking in public.
The question is how does someone tackle fear of public speaking?

Firstly you need to accept your fear of public speaking and panic attacks will not disappear over
night. Essentially what you need to do is build your confidence back up. You may be surprised to
know that the best public speaker's have great anxiety, but use it in a positive fashion to drive
them through their public speaking.

You need to understand that you can experience a panic attack and anxiety during public
speaking and the audience will never know. You will be able to finish your talk and everything will
be fine. No matter how uncomfortable you may feel, you will be able to finish.

The real breakthrough in terms of fear of public speaking and panic attacks is the knowledge that
you will not be in danger, and will be able to finish your talk without issue.

It is all based on fear. Once you no longer fear the fear of public speaking and panic attacks, you
will no longer have a problem.

Self doubt is another major issue. The minute you think - I will not be able to cope of finish, is the
minute you allow the panic attack to take over. Your self doubt triggers adrenaline which allows
the panic attack to take over like a giant wave over your body. The minute you feel this wave of
adrenaline, you need to condition your mind and oppose this sensation to give into the panic
attack.

Your natural response to the feeling of the panic attack coming on might be:

"I am about to have a panic attack, and I really can't afford that to happen in the middle of this
speech".
Normally the person suffering from fear of public speaking and panic attacks would confirm the
question and give in and let the panic attack take control. What you should do however, is say
something like the following to yourself:

"There you are- I have been waiting for you to arrive, I am prepared and you do not pose any
danger for me anymore".

The key factor in controlling your fear of public speaking and panic attacks is that instead of
suppressing the emotional energy down into your stomach, you are moving out through it. Your
body will be in a naturally excited sate- and you can now use that to your advantage. Push out this
nervous energy rather than internalizing it. Your presentation will become more lively and
energetic. You should want more from the anxiety as it is feeding your presentation now rather
than holding it back.

This might seem like a lot to think about while you are concentrating on your presentation,
however you would be surprised how much your mind can deal with simultaneously. By
conditioning yourself you will be amazed by the positive effect it will have on your fear of public
speaking and panic attacks.

If your fear of public speaking is related to being trapped, then seeking feedback from your
audience will provide a great release, and will take you out of the moment. Before your speech
plan intervals where you can ask questions of your audience to alleviate those feelings of being
trapped and threatened by the potential of an anxiety attack.

Conclusion

Fear of public speaking and panic attacks is extremely common. You have the potential to be
great at public speaking - believe in your self. It will take time and practice but you will be amazed
how you can use the nervous energy and anxiety to fully overcome your fear of public speaking
and anxiety attacks.
