Do you dread speaking out in public?

Do you worry for days before you have to give a presentation?

Would you give anything to get out of it?

You are certainly not alone. A fear of speaking out in public is one of the most common phobias that people have. It comes under the category of 'social anxiety', which means that you worry about how others perceive you in certain situations.

A fear of speaking in public is not just about making a presentation to a group of people. It's also about having the confidence to speak up in front of others – in a class or a group. Many people struggle with this, so you are not alone.
