Relieving Exam Nerves with Hypnotherapy

Got an exam coming up and feeling stressed?

Hardly anyone enjoys taking exams. Most people feel stressed by the thought of failing an exam, even if they have been studying really hard. 

The fear and anxiety associated with exams does not just occur while at school, college or university it can last well into adulthood. If you suffer from exam stress it may prevent you from fulfilling your potential. You may be so nervous you either panic and go blank in the exam, or refuse to take any further exams as soon as you are able.

There are a number of reasons for exam nerves. Pressure from parents or a need to pass an exam to progress in your career or go to university are among the most common. A certain amount of anxiety before an exam is usual. Some people find it helps motivate them into studying and working hard to pass their exams. But if these feeling become too intense and overwhelming then they can hinder a student’s performance.

Hypnotherapy can help you overcome the feelings of dread and fear of failure that accompany exams*.

How Hypnotherapy can help

I can help you deal with exam nerves by teaching you self-hypnosis and how to relax so you do not get so stressed if you have to take any exams. That way, you can make sure you are calm when you enter the exam room and sit your exams. So instead of panicking and going blank, you will find it easier to access the information learned during studying*.

Other ways hypnotherapy can help is by:

  • Giving you positive mind-set and reassurance of your abilities.
  • Channelling your exam stress into something more useful.
  • Increased memory and concentration levels as you start to feel more confident and motivated.
