The online workshop gives you the opportunity to work with a sensitive coach who can help you practice in a very controlled and gradual way in front of other workshop participants (others who share your fear). Right now your body is conditioned to automatically respond with fear in public speaking situations. Gradual practice and exposure in a safe "lab" environment will re-train your nervous system to react in a different way. The workshop is based on proven techniques that will help you practice effectively and overcome your fear. It takes place online so you can participate from the comfort of your own home.
