Singer Adele, who is set to perform at the forthcoming Academy Awards Feb 24, has been visiting a hypnotherapist to cure her stage fright.
The star has been having the treatment here in a bid to conquer her anxiety over her upcoming Oscars performance, reports thesun.co.uk.
Adele is booked to perform her Bond theme "Skyfall" at the ceremony. The song is also nominated in the Best Song category.
The singer is suffering from panic attacks and sleepless nights over the performance, say her friends.
"A friend in Los Angeles recommended the hypnotherapist because Adele was getting so nervous about the gig. She has been rehearsing for the show with an orchestra, but all the preparation in the world isn't enough to keep her calm.
"She was so nervous before last year's Grammys that she was sick before going on stage. She doesn't want a repeat of that," said a source.

"Last Vegas" is a funny, heartwarming and a touching buddy film about ageing and male bonding whose premise is so very much like the 2009 released film "The Hangover". But unlike in "The Hangover", these four buddies are geriatrics who jam up after 58 years of separation.
