Just the thought of taking a test can be nerve-wracking for many individuals. Do you find yourself relating to this feeling? I want you to know that you are not alone, and there is a solution to help you conquer test anxiety. Hypnosis sessions can help.
Why Hypnosis Works
The science behind hypnosis for test taking calmly and confidently, lies in the concept of “state-dependent memory.”
This means that how you feel while doing one activity (like studying or practicing an instrument) impacts how well you will do when it’s time to perform (like taking an exam or a recital) based on how you are feeling at that time.
For example, if you’re relaxed, comfortable and confident while studying but freaked out while taking an exam, you won’t be able to remember what you studied because your emotional “states” would be mismatched.
So, the goal of hypnosis is to help you remain calm and relaxed when it’s time for you to take your exam.
How hypnosis works for test taking
The proven approach I use has three steps to it.
Identifying and working with limiting beliefs: Together, we will identify any limiting beliefs or limiting thoughts that may arise before and during exams, which could hinder your success. By working with these limiting beliefs, you’ll notice a gradual increase in your confidence and ability to excel in exams.
Understanding and experiencing subconscious learning: We will talk about how your subconscious mind learns and stores information. While in hypnosis we will be enabling you to have more effective retrieval when needed at test time.
Learning and experiencing self-hypnosis skills in the sessions: You will learn some very simple self-hypnosis techniques that simply work in reducing physical and emotional tension before and during test-taking. During your sessions, you will literally experience the benefits firsthand.
You will leave each session having experienced the necessary tools and mindset to approach tests calmly and confidently. To further strengthen the work we do together, I will provide you with at home reinforcement.
You don’t have to go it alone…
