The two videos below are separated by three years. In 2009 I joined Toastmasters to work on my stuttering and fear of speaking. At the same time I started having NLP and hypnosis sessions. The first video was made three month after I started the sessions. I could already see significant improvement. I could stand in front of people and speak. The second video was made in 2012, when I became the District 2 Humorous Speech Champion. This is one of those things that can make a person a firm believer in the power of the mind.
As I progressed in my training as a hypnotherapist and NLP practitioner, I continued gaining confidence, increasing my ability to enjoy myself and have fun. This eventually resulted in expanding my comfort zone beyond a safe environment of Toastmasters. In the video below I am speaking at the comedy club.
