Hypnotherapy for exam nerves in Whitstable, Kent
Just about anybody that is writing an exam is going to suffer from a certain amount of stress and /or nervousness. This is because our society places an enormous amount of importance on passing exams and indeed the grade that you get for that exam.
It doesn’t matter if you have worked hard all year , turned up to all your lessons or lectures, done all your homework and studied hard prior to the exam. If you walk into the exam room and forget everything you have learnt and studied for you cannot progress to the next level.
Hypnotherapy for exam nerves can help you address all of these issues and get you on the road to exam success and a bright future.*
It’s no surprise that for many people the thought of their future hinging on one exam can put so much pressure on them it can lead to impaired memory, lack of sleep prior to the exam resulting in poor performance, anxiety and panic attacks .
How can hypnotherapy for exam nerves help me?
I will conduct an initial consultation with you where we will establish where your problem lies.
This will help establish your anxiety triggers.
For example :
Exams and paper tests
- Nerves, stress and anxiety leading up to the exam which stops you retaining information as you study
- Anxiety while you are studying causing lack of sleep meaning you are unable to retain information as you are constantly tired
- Exam nerves on the day – freezing up as you walk into the exam room meaning you are unable to write the exam (panic attacks )
- Blank or impaired memory as you open the exam paper due to high levels of anxiety
- Negative thoughts of failure due to low self-esteem or low self confidence
- Managing expectations of others , e.g. family members putting pressure on you to attain a certain pass or grade
I will address your specific triggers using a variety of Cognitive behavioural techniques. We install calm anchors under hypnosis which means when you touch your calm anchor (this can be placed anywhere such as your wrist, your finger etc.) your subconscious remembers the relaxed and calm feeling we have installed under hypnosis and you instantly access this calm state.
I will teach you self-hypnosis to manage your own nerves even when you are not with us, and we will teach you breathing and calming exercises to help you overcome your driving test nerves and help pass your test.*
Driving test nerves
Many people end up re-doing their driving test several times, purely because on the day of the test they end up making mistakes due to extreme nerves .You may be the best driver and may do all your manoeuvres perfectly with your driving instructor. But you get into the car for your test with your assessor and your nerves get the better of you and you end up doing everything wrong!
Hypnotherapy for exam nerves can help you take your mind off your assessor and the fact you are being tested and help you focus on the task at hand as if you were driving on any normal day.* Once I have established your triggers I will focus on calming techniques to help you cope in your trigger situation. I use various techniques to do this but I always start with techniques aimed to calm and reduce anxiety. This includes breathing techniques, direct suggestion of calm, taught self-hypnosis and confidence building.*
I also offer hypnotherapy for professionals entering sporting competitions. Please see my Hypnotherapy for sports performance page for more information.
You could overcome your exam or test nerves in as little as two hypnosis sessions.*
So if you are suffering with exam nerves or test nerves a course of hypnotherapy for exam nerves may be just what you need to get through this stressful time.*
Hypnotherapy for exam nerves in Kent is offered as a minimum of two sessions but may take up to six sessions depending on how bad your anxieties are. In the initial consultation I will be able to advise you how many sessions you are likely to need.
Block sessions are cheaper than paying for one off sessions, but I am happy to do one off sessions, after the initial two sessions have been completed , if this is preferred.
Please note results may vary from person to person. There are never guarantees when undergoing any form of therapy and for this reason we do not offer any guarantees for any of our hypnotherapy services. *
