My name is Olivia James and I work with people who are tired of getting triggered by performance anxiety. I specialise in treating public speaking anxiety and trauma.

Aspiring and established public speakers and entrepreneurs:

Do you want to be on top of your game?

Nail every presentation and pitch?

Accept and pursue new opportunities fearlessly?

If you’re ambitious and want to succeed without nerves having a negative impact when it’s your turn to speak, I can help.

I have a reliable track record and have helped a range of clients improve their performance in meetings, on stage and in front of the camera, helping them grow their business and advance their careers.

So how exactly do I help clients?

One tool I use with success is my knowledge of the human nervous system.

My clients tell me I have the edge on regular performance or “mindset” coaches because I work very quickly and effectively.

Your mind and body both need to be ‘on board’ for optimal performance.


Typical client results:

  • Increased Performance 
  • Optimal Confidence in all situations
  • More Sales
  • More Resilience
  • Increased Productivity and Focus

Some Public Speaking Confidence Testimonials:

Both these clients were recovering from bad public speaking experiences and were extremely anxious about a reoccurrence:

“The one session helped me by reducing the intensity of the emotional reaction provoked by the thought of presenting; it was as if the memory of the traumatic experience had faded in the vague distance. I presented to a group of people a few days after the session and I felt no anxiety prior to or during the presentation and this, in turn, gave me a huge confidence boost.”

Lianne Jongepier, Head of Clinical Quality Transformation, NHS

“Olivia helped me to deliver my best performance as a motivational speaker, no matter how challenging the scenario.

As an experienced and confident professional speaker, there were a couple of triggers that could really hinder my performance and were holding me back. And more importantly, the fears of those reappearing were also a major challenge and ongoing stress for me.

Right before my biggest gig (a keynote to 700 people), our consultations lifted a huge weight and I’ve gone from strength to strength since then and am keynoting at even bigger events with confidence and without concern.”

Sacha Dench, UN Ambassador and Conservationist

I also work with a small number of VIP and high profile Trauma Survivors helping them recover and rebuild their confidence and resilience.


My guarantee to you:

Absolute discretion and client confidentiality. My style is warm, direct, friendly and fun. I aim to deliver maximum benefit in the shortest possible time. I teach all clients relaxation and stress management techniques they can use independently.

You no longer need to suffer from anxiety or trauma.
