How Hypnotherapy Helps Ease Exam Nerves

For some people, sitting an exam can be overwhelming and stressful regardless of the hours spent trying to retain the required information.

Exam nerves can affect anyone at any age and are considered a natural response to a high-pressure situation. However, whilst some people find stress motivating, which can also help us to focus on completing the task at hand, there are people who will find the pressure too overbearing. Not paying attention to these feelings can potentially lead to anxiety attacks and prolonged stress, thus jeopardising performance.

Conditioning yourself to be calm, confident, relaxed and focused can help to boost your capabilities and help you achieve your full potential. Whilst it is not always easy naturally to reach a calm state of mind, it can be achieved using Hypnotherapy, which is a combination of talking therapy and hypnosis.

Hypnosis is known to be effective for people dealing with anxiety and fear as well as those who struggle with very stressful situations.  By accessing this relaxed state, visualisation and empowerment techniques are used to calm the mind and the body.  Mental rehearsal in hypnosis is used to develop positive expectations and belief which will help increase skills, stay focused, emotionally balance and improve performance.

Sessions can help create new, positive study habits and help you to assess your lifestyle – such as having sufficient rest and staying physically and mentally healthy which can also give you a better chance of obtaining the results you desire.
