The fear of public speaking is one that is shared by countless people everywhere; that sinking, “deer-in-headlights” feeling is familiar to most individuals who have ever had to face a large audience. But with the right kind of approach, just about any fear can be overcome. Embodied Minds: Public Speaking Consultants in NYC is a company that’s dedicated to helping people transcend their crowd-related apprehensions. Their revolutionary public speaking workshops, speech coaching, and communication classes have already helped numerous clients—even severely phobic ones—feel at ease at the podium.
Though the majority of public speaking courses endorse traditional methods that don't work for everybody, Embodied Minds focuses on techniques that allow you to really get to the bottom of your fears. You’ll learn to visualize success, and to practice breathing and relaxation techniques. You'll also learn to come to terms with "worst case scenarios," and mentally visit your speaking space ahead of time, to familiarize yourself with it.
Plus, you'll learn to get the most of the right side of your brain—which controls creativity and creative visualization—and the left side of your brain, which controls logic. As a result, you’ll be utilizing the best of both kinds of coping mechanisms, and before you know it, your fear of public speaking will be greatly reduced.

Embodied Minds co-founders Shira Lahav and Leticia Warner graduated from the NYU Drama Therapy Masters program in 2010. After working as drama therapists in hospitals, agencies, and privately, we realized our backgrounds in theater and psychology could combine to create a unique, exciting approach to public speaking consulting.
Most public speaking companies focus on surface solutions rather than delving deeper and addressing underlying sources of anxiety. Embodied Minds is different!

We are dedicated to helping you work through your fear of public speaking and helping you become a better presenter. We use creative methods and will not ask you to simply stand up and present. Our goal is to ensure that you feel comfortable and safe enough to put your best presenter forward.
