Hypnotherapy is a powerful way to help you overcome exam stress or exam nerves
Feeling nervous before an exam is expected and a natural emotion. Lots of people will find these a feelings a motivator to do that little bit more revision and a way to focus on the task, but some of us will find the pressure overwhelming. When these feelings become intense, they can threaten our performance. When we are stressed our concentration is adversely affected. Blood is taken away from the thinking part of our brain, slowing us down and making us panic or freeze. You may feel your mind has gone blank and you can’t recall the information you know you have revised or that you know well.
It sometimes feels like everyone else is managing, but you’re not, causing more stress, worry and panic. It’s no wonder in these situations that people achieve below their potential.
How can hypnotherapy help managing exam stress and exam nerves?
Hypnotherapy is a common method used to help control exam nerves rather than letting them control you. The power of visualisation encourages you to approach the exam in a calm state of mind and with a cool, focused head. It helps to boost confidence and reduce anxiety, helping you to recall the information you need easily and correctly.
