Celebrities have been turning to hypnotherapy in a bid to help them cure stage fright, according to nme.com. Some of the biggest names in music are using the treatment to beat their demons.
Award-winning singer Adele is rumoured to have seen a hypnotherapist in Los Angeles to help her prepare for big events. She sang the James Bond theme 'Skyfall' at this year's Oscars in what could be classed as one of the biggest performances of her career.
The star was said to have been suffering from sleepless nights and panic attacks due to her nerves over performing at the Academy Awards. She has spoken out about her stage fright in the past, claiming to have been sick before big performances.
41-year-old Dido is another singer who has admitted using the therapy before to combat her fears, according to tourdates.co.uk. She said: "I went to hypnotherapy for stage fright years ago and it completely worked. I always get nervous, but it was getting to the point where it would mess with my singing."
She went on to say that there was a difference between getting nervous and having a meltdown. The therapy appears to have allowed her to distinguish between the two and ensures she can give the best performance possible.
