There is a lot of emphasis on measuring people’s abilities through exams and tests. This creates huge pressure on students taking them.
Whether it is your GCSEs or University’s final exams, you might feel this pang of overwhelming stress and anxiety.
Even though you have prepared well for the exam, all of the learnt material seems to disappear in thin air.
Feeling nervous and stressful at the time of exam is quite normal. In fact, for some people, it can prove to be a great motivator.
You know there is a problem when these feelings of stress and anxiety become so intense that they start interfering with performance.
How Hypnosis can Help
In recent times, hypnosis has been backed by science and has emerged as one of the most effective complementary medicine approaches.
Through its relaxing techniques, it can help calm nerves down and reduce feelings of anxiety. A person can learn these techniques and can use them at the time of exam. It can help them cope with all kinds of difficult situations.
Hypnosis can also lead to enhanced performance. It includes a wide variety of suggestive and visualization techniques that can clear an individual’s head and help them focus on the exam. What’s more, hypnosis also enhances memory. Through effective hypnosis techniques, students can recall exam material quickly.
What You Can Expect
Here’s how a hypnosis session proceeds:
It starts with an initial consultation session. This involves a brief telephone conversation or a short meeting with the hypnotherapist.
The real deal begins with the next session. The hypnotherapist helps the individual enter a relaxed state of mind.
She then lets the individual imagine the sensations of sitting at an exam. Feelings of stress and anxiety are brought to the fore. Once the individual recognizes these feelings, the hypnotherapist begins to teach calming exercises.
The therapist will help you take control of the situation. From breathing techniques to visualization, she will equip you with the techniques to take full advantage of your mind.
The hypnotherapist also aims to uncover deeper emotional issues, such as fear of failure. She helps boost motivation and provide that all-important push towards success.
Typically, it takes around 3 to 4 sessions. However, it might take longer depending on your situation. Finally, the hypnotherapist might offer some self-hypnosis technique.
