X Factor finalist Katie Waissel said to have booked phone consultation

X Factor star Katie Waissel is reportedly planning to try hypnotherapy in a bid to beat her nerves.

The singer – who is being mentored by Cheryl Cole – is said to have been having panic attacks.

Katie is thought to have already booked a preliminary 40-minute phone consultation with a specialist.

‘She fluffed her lines on last week’s show and is terrified the same thing will happen again,’ a source tells the Daily Mirror. 

‘She’s really worried about stage fright.’

Katie, 24, avoided being sent packing at the weekend after the judges opted to save her following a sing-off with Treyc Cohen, 27.
