How hypnotherapy can help you cope with exam nerves, anxiety and stress
Hypnotherapy is a common method used for helping control exam nerves as it can help boost confidence, promote relaxation, and reduce feelings of anxiety and stress. It can also help you develop the ability to access the calm state of mind needed to sit an exam or cope with a potentially overwhelming situation.
Hypnotherapist Melanie Peak explains more about how hypnosis can help children and teens cope with stress, anxiety and worry. “Hypnotherapy can be a great option for children. It teaches them that it is ok to talk openly if you have worries or concerns. This develops a behavior that allows them to reach out and ask for help if they are struggling. It also provides them with coping mechanisms and builds resilience to support them as they face new issues as they grow.
“For children, hypnotherapy is a powerful tool. Children are a lot quicker at accepting change. They are still shaping their opinions and views. Hypnotherapists that work with children will have developed tools and techniques to help your child deal with the issues they are experiencing in a supportive way.”
The power of suggestion and visualization techniques can encourage an individual to clear their racing mind and approach the exam with a cool, focused head. Your mind knows the information you need to pass the exam, but when experiencing exam stress or anxiety, your ability to focus and concentrate will suffer. Hypnotherapy will help you recall the information easily and correctly, as well as help restore your self-belief.
