A free-thinking Australian doctor has made a bold suggestion to help people cope with fear of speaking their mind.
Dr Helen Wintour says it’s time for us to stop feeling so afraid of speaking our minds, or even to have to be afraid of it.
Key points:Dr Helen was talking to a man about his fear of talking to his mother, and the man said “I don’t know what it is”.
The doctor advised him to seek help from speech therapists.
Now, Dr Wintours, from the University of Sydney, says she wants us to start talking to our fears instead of running away from them.
“What I want to say is to start thinking about your fears and think about how you could avoid or control them,” she said.
“I’ve got a book called The Fearless Woman, which talks about this.
It’s about the fear of speech, the fear you might not be able to express your emotions.”
So you have this fear of that emotion, and it’s very important to be aware of it and it is important to stop thinking that way.
“You have to think about what you’re going to say, what your fears are, what you don’t want to be saying and then think about the best way to express it.”
The Fearless Women, which is available in paperback, is the first book written specifically for people who struggle with speech.
It’s written by Dr Wamply, who has also published a number of other books, including The Fearful Mind and The Fear of Speech.
Dr Wampyl said while she was talking with the man, she felt a “kind of anxiety” in her voice.
“He’s quite a quiet, quiet guy, and he’s very shy,” she told news.com.au.
“It’s a bit uncomfortable for me to talk to him.”
But he seemed to have a sense of panic about speaking to me, and I thought, well, you know, I think this is something I might be able control, because I know you can speak to your mum, and your dad.
“I’m speaking with a guy about his anxiety about talking to me.
He’s a quiet guy.
He doesn’t have a lot of words to say.
He said ‘I don ‘t know what this is’.
I said ‘What?’ and he said ‘Oh, I don’t think it’s fear of my mother’.”
It just seemed to me to be this sort of panic, which was something I could get away with a little bit more because I had a bit of control over my speech.
“Dr Wintorys book The Fearlessness Woman outlines the symptoms of speech disorder, and how to manage them.
It focuses on the relationship between speech and speech-related thoughts and behaviour, including how to communicate, act, and think.
Dr Catheryn O’Toole, from Sydney’s Women’s and Gender Institute, said Dr Wamps work had been groundbreaking.”
Her work really showed how much we need to stop talking to ourselves in order to talk about something else,” she says.”
In a sense, she’s saying we have to start saying to ourselves ‘what are we going to talk at, and what are we not going to?’
“She added Dr Wumpyl was an inspiration for women who wanted to get better at speaking.”
She showed us how to listen to ourselves and then go and find someone else who can do that for you,” she explained.”
And I think that’s what is so important when it comes to speech disorders, is to actually find someone who can actually talk to you, listen to you and listen to your issues.
“Dr Cawley agrees.”
There is a lot that needs to be done to ensure that we do not get a lot more people talking to themselves in order for them to actually have the support and the understanding that we need, because a lot, if not most, of the problems that we’re facing in this country are caused by our own speech,” she adds.”
If we are really going to be able, if we are to address these things, then we need a lot less talk.
We need to be more like people who are having their voices heard.
