Thank you for your help throughout the past year on different occasions. My life has changed . I have passed all my exams and I now perform to my full potential. I can not tell you how much I appreciate everything you have done.
Nearly everyone has suffered from exam stress at some time in their lives. It’s all a part of taking exams.
Many people are able to learn and digest information well, yet when it comes to being tested in an exam, they can suffer from ‘exam stress’ and simply go to pieces.
Whether the student is at School, University or perhaps studying a new skill for their profession it can be a stressful time. Many face concerns over the fear of failure, or not being able to remember what they have learned and to apply it on the day of their exams..
For some it isn’t just the anxiety or ‘nerves’ at the time of the exam but very often it is weeks or months ahead. Perhaps the person had suffered a bad time during previous exams and is worried it is all going to happen again.
They may be so nervous in the run up to the exam they are unable to get much sleep the night before, leaving them tired and unable to function correctly the next day. (According to research, students who sleep and eat well and regularly, perform best in exams) Some feel depressed, and can suffer from panic attacks.
One of the comments I constantly hear is, after all the clients hard studying that when the test paper is put right in front of them their mind goes blank, leaving them unable to remember anything about their subjects. Nerves and anxiety will have got the better of them and their ability to remember will simply stop working!
They feel that while they are quite confident in the subject for which they are being tested at any other time, their “nerves” will cause them to ‘let themselves down on the day.
People taking exams sometimes have some or all of the following symptoms.
- A growing feeling of impending doom in the days and weeks leading up to the test or exam.
- Dryness of the mouth, upset stomach, tension headaches, insomnia, etc.
- Their voice quivering and weak in an oral exam.
- Unable to write, type or do other manual tasks because their hands are shaking so much.
- Staring at an exam paper… and not being able to think of a single answer!
- Feeling at ease in advance….
Fast Track Hypnosis is Alan’s unique system that can help the client feel more at ease in advance and during the exam, and it is also designed to allow the client to be able to retain more information during studying.
Suggestions, such as being able to concentrate and remember easily are included into the session, making exam nerves a thing of the past, by re-training the brain to respond with calmness and being totally focused, thus improving memory and recall.
Normally only one session is required for exam stress, however depending on the severity of the problem more than one session may be required.
This would be discussed with the client before any session commences.
The Client is also provided with a CD to reinforce the suggestions given on the session.
I approached Alan as I suffered exam stress. Prior to my consultation I had previously walked out of exams due to stress. This was despite having prepared properly. After my consultation I passed every exam. When I felt myself getting stressed I could hear Alan’s voice and the positive suggestions he made to me.
I would recommend Alan to anyone who needs to eliminate exam stress
