Exam Stress

Exam Stress

Many people will suffer moments of stress and often feel overwhelmed when having to sit in an exam. We can experience the sensation of butterflies in our stomach, sweaty palms, our hearts race and we may fear our memory will let us down. Feeling stressed and anxious before an exam is expected, being nervous is a natural emotion, offering us focused attention, helping enhance our memory and performance. If these feelings become too intense, we may feel overwhelmed and not achieve our true potential.

Hypnotherapy can help control exam nerves, boosting confidence and reduce feelings of anxiety. The power of suggestion and visualisation techniques can encourage an individual to clear their racing mind and approach the exam with a cool, focused head, enabling you to recall the information easily and correctly, as well as help restore your self-belief.
