Fear of doing badly can prevent us from achieving our goals, doing well in our careers, and enjoying some of the most important times of our lives. Performance anxiety affects many people in many different ways: doing exams, going for job interviews, giving presentations, speaking in public. Many famous musicians suffer from performance anxiety including Pavarotti, Carly Simon and Barbara Streisand. This book provides a method for overcoming this anxiety that is accessible to all. Based on cognitive behaviour therapy, the authors take the reader through a series of processes and exercises to help change thought and behaviour patterns that will allow them to perform with a sense of confidence and pleasure, no matter what the situation. This book is essential for all those who suffer from performance anxiety and is also of great value for those who feel nervous in public situations.
