Social and Business Confidence

“I worked my way up from the shop floor age 18, to become Managing Director of the group 4 years ago. During this time I noticed that as I moved higher in my career, my confidence got lower, and in my 30’s I actually had a few panic attacks in business meetings and started to dread board meetings and customer visits and meals out with clients. This also affected my private life as I dreaded social gatherings and weddings and would basically just not go to these events. At work as MD I got around the problem by sending managers to the meetings, but this year I decided to do something about it and booked in to see Kevin. Since then I have attended meetings with no problem whatsoever, I’ve also been out to a few lunches and have enjoyed the experience, and socially I am doing things I would never have done before – and I’m doing them easily. I’d previously tried a course of hypnotherapy and other treatments, and none of them had made any difference. I would recommend anyone in a similar situation to do what I’ve done. I let it run my life for years and wish I’d done something sooner. I’m now looking forward to pushing my business hard and enjoying it instead of dreading it.”
