• About The Public Speaking Fear and Phobia Program

    Dr. Cheryl Mathews, Director

This program is very different. It explains exactly what's happening in your nervous system, how fear works, and how you can take control.

    The program content is based on the latest research in psychology and neuroscience. The cognitive-behavioral approach used in this program is recommended by top researchers, and has worked for thousands of people.

    The program includes:

    It's all available online - so you can participate from the comfort of your own home or from anywhere.


    Does learning online really work for this type of program?

    There have been three reputable studies conducted on online anxiety and phobia programs. All three studies concluded that online programs are just as effective as in-person programs.
