Despite many years as a performing musician, I struggled severely with stage fright, occasionally blacking out and relying almost entirely on muscle memory in order to make it through performances.
I recently had an opportunity to lead a two hour TEDx workshop for a large audience, and after a few years of explicit practice and training in public speaking, I was still struggling with nerves and a lot of negative self-talk. I reached out to Ryan for a virtual hypnosis session hoping that he might be able to help me feel more confident on stage.
We had one session. One. Singular. As a transformational teacher and coach, I’m generally skeptical of “easy buttons” and “revivals” of any nature. I honestly did not expect to have such instantaneous results. But what I got out of that one session was an unwavering belief in my capability as a speaker, the potency of my authenticity and vulnerability, and the power of my impact. By the time I walked on stage, I didn’t even tremble. It was an extraordinary experience.
Ryan has a true gift in achieving almost instantaneous attunement to the root cause of any issue and shifting the fundamental landscape of beliefs around it in an extraordinarily short period of time. Combined with my own preparations, my experience of our session is that it released the obstacles that were preventing me from seeing my own gifts for myself, so that I could more deliberately share them with others.
