Even famous singing stars can feel terrified when invited to perform live at major events. Panic and insomnia set in. A pounding heart, clammy palms, sweating and the terror can affect voice quality. Why would that be when they have performed live so many times? Maybe it is the thought of performing in front of thousands or even millions if a global televised event.
Stage fright can even be so bad that it causes a performer to vomit in the lavatories before appearing on stage.
However, visiting a hypnotherapist is a good solution to calm nerves and overcome the stage fright.
Under hypnosis, events and situations do not seem so scary so you can face whatever it is that you are afraid of whether that be fear of heights, flying, spiders, public speaking or in this case - singing live in front of millions. The hypnotherapist uses a process of detaching you from reality so that you become desensitized to whatever is making your heart beat too fast. The result is that your mind is reprogrammed to see the object of your fear in a non-scary way and maybe even enjoy the experience.
Once the mind is re-programmed at the deep unconscious level where all permanent change must take place, life will never be the same.
I know because I overcame my life-long phobia of spiders through self-hypnosis.
An opera singer once approached me for help with her stage fright. Her contemporaries were coping with beta-blockers which are prescribed to cope with the physiological symptoms of the "fight or flight" response (pounding heart, cold/clammy hands, increased respiration, sweating, etc.) The symptoms are significantly reduced, thus enabling anxious individuals to concentrate on the task at hand.
However, Wikipedia (1) quotes the following adverse drug reactions (ADRs) associated with the use of beta blockers include: nausea, diarrhoea, bronchospasm, dyspnea, cold extremities, exacerbation of Raynaud's Syndrome, bradycardia, hypotension, heart failure, heart block, fatigue, dizziness, alopecia (hair loss), abnormal vision, hallucinations, insomnia,nightmares, sexual or erectile dysfunction and/or alteration of glucose and lipid metabolism. They must also not be prescribed if the patient suffers from asthma or takes cocaine.
So this very sensible opera singer preferred to learn how to overcome her stage fright with natural, relaxing hypnosis.
