“Despite having to speak publically on a fairly regular basis, it is a part of my job that I don’t always relish or enjoy. Cognitive hypnotherapy gave me the tools to overcome my anxiety about addressing a large group of people and to do it in a confident and relaxed manner; the beauty is that the techniques learned can be used in a number of scenarios. My approach to giving speeches or addressing people at any level has certainly changed for the better, and I enjoy the process much more.”- HS, Managing Director, Oxford
