Adele has visited a hypnotherapist to cure herself of stage fright, according to a tabloid report.

The singer is confirmed to perform her James Bond theme 'Skyfall' at this year's Oscar ceremony and, according to The Sun, she's getting intensive hypnotherapy treatment so that she can overcome her fears to play.

A source told the newspaper: "A friend in LA 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."

Adele will be performing the title track from the twenty third Bond movie at this year's Oscar ceremony, which takes place in LA on February 26. Barbara Streisand is also scheduled to perform at the annual Hollywood event.

Last month, Adele picked up a Golden Globe for 'Skyfall'. Taking to the stage to collect her award for best original song, she said: "Oh my God. Oh my God. Honestly, I've come out for a night out with my friend. We're new Mums. We've literally come for a night out, I was not expecting this."

The 2013 Academy Awards take place on Sunday, February 24 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.
