Hypnosis For Test Taking Anxiety
Millions of high school students spend countless hours preparing for the PSAT, SAT and related national tests that will significantly impact their ability to get into the college of their choice and in some cases, to get into college at all.
Many parents spend hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars on tutors and specialized college test preparation courses. While these efforts are helpful to many, a significant number of students do not perform to their potential due to anxiety. Anxiety can result in difficulty concentrating, having trouble remembering well studied information, problems in recall and memory, and being easily distracted. In plain English, the student “freezes”. Test taking anxiety is seldom directly addressed in classes, courses or tutors.
Hypnosis provides a useful alternative to those seeking to minimize the impact of test taking anxiety on their performance.
Hypnosis provides direct help in a short series of 6-10 sessions. Following an assessment of the specific worries and concerns that create and maintain anxiety and tension, participants are educated in the important connection between thoughts feelings and performance. Next, participants are guided into a relaxed state where they can concentrate on suggestions designed to help them relax quickly and easily on their own. In future sessions, relaxation is deepened and additional suggestions are imparted to develop the mind set and mental attitude most helpful for increasing confidence and deceasing worry and fear.
Hypnosis sessions are recorded to allow clients to practice on their own and to deepen the effects of the session between each visit.
