- Insomnia in the lead up to a presentation event

Presentation nerves will often be triggered by early experiences of shame or distress in a social setting. Even when we don’t recall them, these experiences are held in the subconscious and make up the conscious ideas we have about ourselves, like ‘I can’t speak in front of a group because I’ll end up saying something stupid’.
