Dallas Counseling for Performance Anxiety
Nearly everyone experiences “stage fright” from time to time. While occasional feelings of performance anxiety are quite common, more frequent or intense episodes can become debilitating, often interfering with job productivity, self-esteem and self-confidence.
The simplest definition of performance anxiety is
stress and anxiety caused by performing (or even thinking about performing) in front of others. But there are other factors that can weigh in: genetic conditions, generalized feelings of anxiety, stressful or traumatic events and lifestyle choices. For the person struggling with performance anxiety, making positive changes such as healthful eating, restful sleep, regular exercise, deep breathing techniques and simply talking about feelings can make a world of difference.
