The 'Someone Like You' singer is reportedly seeking professional advice ahead of her Academy Awards performance.

Adele is apparently seeking the advice of a professional hypnotherapist in an attempt to cure her of her stage fright.

The 'Rolling In The Deep' star is notoriously nervous before live shows and admitted she could never perform in arenas due to her fear.

The singer is currently preparing to make her first live performance of 2013 when she performs at the Oscars 2013 this year.

Adele will sing her 'Skyfall' James Bond theme, which is also nominated for an Academy Award on the night, during a special segment of the show honouring the 007 franchise.

"A friend in LA recommended the hypnotherapist because Adele was getting so nervous about the gig," a source told The Sun. "She has been rehearsing for the show with an orchestra, but all the preparation in the world isn't enough to keep her calm."

The insider continued: "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." 

The 'Chasing Pavements' star made her first live public appearance since the birth of her baby boy earlier this year at the Golden Globes – where she also won Best Original Song.

She dedicated the win to her first child – who is believed to be called Angelo after Adele was spotted sporting a necklace with the name during a trip in Hollywood recently.

The Oscars 2013 will take place live from Hollywood on 24th February.
