The 3-Month Online Group Coaching Program

taught by Doreen Downing, Ph.D.

Course description

The Essential Speaking Online Group Coaching Program is a 12-week live, online interactive experience led by Doreen Hamilton, Ph.D. 

The program includes weekly calls, the Signature 7-Step Essential Speaking Course, Instructional videos, exercises, assignments, practice, and ongoing email support.

The group meets together live for hour-long weekly calls on a Zoom video. With no more than 6 participants, each person will have time to share. Everyone is expected to commit to showing up for the weekly calls. A computer or phone/tablet that has a microphone and camera is required.

The goal is to build deep self-confidence so that you can speak from the calm, clear, powerful Essence of who you are.

Next program starts September, 2019.

Based on my experience dissolving my own stage fright, my expertise as a psychologist and mindfulness teacher, and my years as Training Director of Speaking Circles® International, I have discovered that being present and connected to your "Essential Self" is the key to relaxed and confident speaking. 

Now I offer workshops, private sessions, E-Courses, leadership training seminars, and consultations for business groups. My innovative approach is based on connecting to and speaking from your authentic self rather than focusing on performance techniques.

The Online Group Coaching Program helped me explore the root of my public speaking anxiety, gave me tools on how to navigate through these challenges and opportunities to practice them weekly. I appreciated the online group format as it was accessible for someone with a busy schedule, and I learned and benefited so much from the experiences of the other participants. Doreen structured the class to provide just the right balance of instruction, attendee participation, and feedback. Doreen was not only an incredible coach but truly cared about the growth and success of each member of the group. I still get anxious when I’m about to speak in a group setting but I now have the tools to successfully manage through the experience, thanks to Doreen and my online classmates!

More than a class!

I've learned a lot about myself, where my fear of speaking comes from, and now have some tools to manage myself. Now I can acknowledge my anxiety, know it's there, then quickly get back to my place of inner stillness/peace and speak well like I know I can. I use the tools nearly every day in conversations, presentations and meetings that often gave me anxiety in the past (they still do at times, but I can now harness this).
