Exam Anxiety and Feeling of Study Overwhelm

Empowering Yourself To Have Exam Confidence & Achieve the Results You Deserve!

Hypnotherapy is an ideal way to release stress and create new positive thought patterns and behaviours.  It is a common method used for helping to control exam nerves as it can help boost confidence and reduce feelings of anxiety.  Your mind knows the information you need to pass the exam, but when experiencing exam stress or anxiety, your ability to focus and concentrate can suffer.

Hypnosis can induce extremely beneficial, deeply relaxing and calming states of mind that can help you get through your studies in a positive, calm and stress-free way with lasting effectiveness.  It can also empower you to be calm, focussed and in control before and during exams.

Studies have shown that using the power of your mind, by accessing your Alpha brainwave when studying, can enhance your cognitive performance and allow you to absorb & retain information that you can then re-access in exams, or whenever you need it.Reading book

In addition to hypnosis, there are many other simple self-support techniques to be aware of:

EAT WELL – The brain uses more energy than any other human organ – 20% of all our energy is used by the brain.

FOOD IS FUEL:  Fuel for the mind as well as the body and eating well promotes mental and physical wellbeing, stamina & equilibrium.

Below I note some FOOD HEROES to be aware of and the sustainable blood sugar levels, energy, positivity & mental stamina they can provide:

  • Whole Grains &/or Oats
