Feeling anxious right before exam is a common phenomenon. Sitting in the examination hall or taking a test is one the most stressful and nerve-racking feelings. For most of us, even the thought of an exam can get our palms sweaty or get butterflies in the stomach.
Being stressed or anxious before an exam is a natural thing. In fact, it may even serve as a motivator to help you prepare more rigorously.
However, when these feelings become intense to the level that you feel pressured and threatened, it may inhibit your capabilities to use your true potential or perform exceptionally.
If you think that your anxiety is causing your thoughts and ideas to become hopelessly cluttered instead of giving a confidence boost, use hypnotherapy to remain calm and relaxed.
How Hypnotherapy Help You Manage Exam Anxiety
Your mind may fail to process the information retained in your brain when experiencing stress or anxiety. Hypnotherapy recognises your mind’s tendency to lose focus and concentration and thus addresses the phenomenon to boost confidence, while reducing the feeling of anxiety.
With techniques like visualisation, hypnotherapy can activate the subconscious area of the mind to overcome potentially overwhelming thoughts and stimulate positive feelings. This allows you to take the test with a focused and stress-free mind. By relaxing your mind, not only can the technique make it easier for your brain to recollect the information, but may also help re-establish your confidence thus helping you perform well.
How Hypnotherapy Works
Rather than dictating your behaviour, hypnotherapy helps deal with the anxiety by influencing the underlying thoughts triggering anxiety-inducing behaviour. While the process may differ across cases, it primarily involves investigating inner thoughts and feelings to replace problem-causing emotions with positive suggestions.
In a typical hypnotherapy session, the hypnotherapist may enter into your subconscious mind and ask you to imagine the feelings you experience when stressed or nervous. Once you experience those emotions, the hypnotherapist may weed out problematic thoughts, like fear of failure and introduce positive suggestions.
With visualisation therapy, you may activate positive suggestions and bring them into the conscious mind when experiencing a nerve-racking situation. This enables you to deal with problem-causing emotions by remaining calm and relaxed when the situation may potentially become overwhelming.
The hypnotherapist may also provide you with tips for self-hypnosis to practice the technique at home or right before the exam.
Before going for your next exam, learn to control your negative emotions by getting expert guidance from renowned hypnotherapist, Shaan White. Along with hypnotherapy treatment, he can provide you with tips and techniques to practice self hypnosis to overcome exam anxiety without having to visit him before an exam.
