Hypnosis for Exams in Nottinghamshire
April, May and June are the traditional exam time for not only pupils at school but also for university students and people pursuing adult education. Now whilst exams are never going to be pleasant, for some people the ordeal of revision and turning up at the exam hall strikes them with feelings of severe anxiety, panic and fear. This is way beyond the normal feelings of worry that an average person may experience and is troublesome enough that it may impact their performance. Yet with some help it is possible to calm down this anxiety and stress response. This is why we have created our Hypnotherapy for Exams Nottingham program.
Symptoms of Exam Anxiety
We know that just like any other form of anxiety there are some typical symptoms that appear time and time again. Here are just a few of the problems that our clients encounter.
- Feeling sick
- Shaking or trembling
- Anxiety in the stomach
- Brain freeze or blank mind
- Worrying and negative thinking
- Worries about failing
- Feeling overwhelmed
- Feelings of increased stress or pressure.
These anxiety symptoms can occur both before the exam takes place such as feeling overwhelmed by the sheer amount of revision that needs to be done or during the exam itself. Whilst a little bit of stress has help with performance too much creates problems as it impacts your ability to perform at your best whether that is in a written, oral or practical exam or test.
Hypnotherapy for Exam Nerves
The work that we do in our clinics is designed to help our clients learn how to take control over their fears or phobias. For the majority of our clients this work revolves around anxiety and stress reduction, positive visualisation, mindfulness and suggestion. Sometimes however there is a deeper problem that needs to be investigated such as a fear of failure or not being good enough. These patterns are often created in childhood and need to be addressed before the problem can be managed.
Our Hypnotherapy for Exams in Nottingham is used with a wide range of clients including:
School Pupils – Generally exams start at around the age of 10 when SAT’s tests are used to stream pupils into secondary schools. The pressure to perform can place significant stress on a young child and impact their confidence. We use gentle stress management and confidence boosting techniques to help.
Older Children – GCSE and A Levels can create further problems as these start to impact a person’s future and whether they will get into university or alternatively the right course at university. We help to remove limiting beliefs and help structure stress management programs then enable the right amount of revision to be done without creating a problem.
University Students – We have worked with students at the University of Nottingham, Nottingham Trent University, The University of Lincoln, De Montfort and The University of Leicester.
Sports Performance – Test anxiety doesn’t only occur with students and school children. Many sports people experience worry or nerves either before big events or when they feel as if they are being watched or judged by others. We work on boosting confidence, increasing focus and reducing stress.
Driving Tests – Finally driving lessons and tests create problems for some people because you are out of your comfort zone. Driving on unfamiliar roads and being placed under pressure to make the right decisions can make you feel nervous and out of control. We work with our clients in our clinics, online as well as with our self-hypnosis audio to help you feed relaxed and calm.
Self-Hypnosis for Exam Stress & Driving
Self-hypnosis can be a wonderful way of helping with all forms of anxiety.
