Exams, Tests & Interviews

Believe it or not, some anxiety before an exam, test or interview is actually normal

Home  >  Help For  >  Exams, Tests & Interviews

If we are doing something that we’re not familiar with or perhaps doing something for the first time, then it’s only natural to feel nervous. When we become anxious, our body responds by releasing chemicals such as adrenaline which gives us extra energy to respond to the situation.

Exams, Tests & Interviews

In the right quantity, a little anxiety helps us to stay focused, but if this brief period of anxiety persists, it can begin to affect our confidence and performance. If you’re currently learning to drive, have an interview or are about to take an exam or test, you’ve probably already started to practise and prepare for the big day. When we have an event to prepare for, we often put pressure on ourselves to get things right first time and the same is true of tests and interviews.

Which therapy?

The most effective therapy for you depends on your individual situation. Many people have found hypnotherapy helpful for exams, tests and interviews and talking with someone who is impartial and non-judgmental can help you to overcome anxiety and boost confidence. Working with your subconscious mind, hypnotherapy can help you to stay calm and focused so you can be confident and more relaxed during your exam, test or interview.

What to expect

The first step is to book an initial consultation. This is an opportunity for us to meet and discuss your situation in more detail as well as answering any questions you may have and deciding on the best options for you. We will also do some hypnosis, if appropriate, to introduce you to hypnotherapy and help you prepare for future sessions. Many people find between 3 to 6 hypnotherapy sessions helpful for exams, tests or interviews.

Your initial consultation is about building a good overview of your situation and what you would like to change. We will discuss a number of things including:

  • The issue(s) that you would like help with

  • Health, medical, personal, past history and other relevant issues
  • Appropriate therapy options for your situation
  • Practical details and your role in the therapy process

Hypnotherapy, talking therapy and NLP are effective forms of therapy, however people respond differently and therefore results may vary from person to person. Full client commitment and participation is required. Listening to CDs / MP3s and carrying out other therapy tasks between sessions is an essential part of the process and this will be fully explained during your initial consultation.
