Hypnotherapy and the Best Man
I have been thinking that I have had quite a few people present for therapy in the past few months to help them to do their best man speech. Weddings are very intricate, special events. Many would think that the bride and groom are the centre of attention, and of course they are. However, there are other supporting players in a wedding. One of which is th3 Best Man who needs to deliver a speech and toast at the reception.
Now as I have said before public speaking is the number one fear in the western world. So you can imagine how challenging it is for a best man to not only be skilled at the speech, but funny and entertaining as well.
Hypnotherapy is particularly useful with doing Mental rehearsals with these clients. When a person imagines that they have given a successful toast, the unconscious mind treats it as reality. This is due to the fact that the unconscious mind does not know the difference between fact and fantasy.
With enough mental rehersal using hypnosis and looking at some practical skills to assist the speech, the best man is in a strong position to play his part well in the pageantry of the wedding.
