The fear of speaking to groups is consistently rated in the top three human fears in the United States. My team of communication coaches based in Boston works with individuals whose careers and well being are affected by anxiety (social phobia, performance anxiety) in meetings, social interaction and classrooms.

Coaching to reduce the fear of speaking is aimed at developing skills, reframing thoughts, and reducing physiological stress symptoms.
Intervention regarding troubling physiological symptoms includes breath control, imagery and virtual reality.

We are encouraged by the potential value of emotion sensing wearable technology for our clients and others affected by communication anxiety.

Clients would benefit from receiving emotion sensing physiologicial feedback, starting with heart rate, in stressful situations to :
1. Track the range , degree and context of stress symptoms
2. Observe progress over time
3. Gain control, mastery and objectivity
