Glossophobia, derived from the Greek word “glosso’(meaning tongue) is a common fear of public speaking found among students. In this paper, we apply graph labelling techniques to address the issue of glossophobia. The complicative cognitive mapping which is commonly used in psychotherapy is now replaced by bi-star graph. A survey was undertaken among school students of age group 10 years to 18 years. Shrub graph is used to represent the collected data for symptoms found among students while speaking in a competition. The link for the summary of results of the google survey done is also given in this paper.
