About Goddess Of Public Speaking

Specialised Coaching & Training

Hello, I’m Geraldine Barkworth.

Thank you for visiting my website and for considering whether my real, raw and authentic approach is right for you. Feel free to send me a message to find out more.

I specialise in working with nervous speakers because I get to witness transformation and beauty as new doors open for my clients. The ability to express yourself freely, to stand your ground and face your fears, comes from within. Communication is an inside job.


Fear and anxiety are close personal friends of mine, shadowing me since my teens. I do understand how public speaking fears can be debilitating, career wrecking and embarrassing. Being seen and, not being seen, truly are two of our deepest fears.

From privileged observation and painful personal experience, I’ve created unique, gentle and safe processes to help you relax into being seen, heard and lead, in a public space. Who knows, you may even enjoy it and go on to be a speaking superstar. Or not!

It is easy to paste on a veneer and look good on the outside. That’s what many standard public speaking courses provide. However, it’s the “inner life that makes the outer life, one worth living.” And that’s what Goddess of Public Speaking offers.

Please contact me with any questions about what you need and how I might be able to help you find your words, voice, message and purpose.
