Exam nerves, stress and worry can affect anyone from Junior Cert all the way to those completing Masters or Ph.D.’s and can seriously affect your ability to concentrate, to perform at your best, and can even manifest itself as physical ailments. Fear and stress are natural feelings within the human body but they are much more appropriate in a life-endangering situation. When you feel fear or stress because of exams or studying, all that’s happening is that those feelings are being triggered at the wrong time.
The great news is that hypnotherapy can help you to “recalibrate” your anxiety response so that it no longer activates in response to exams leaving you free to perform at your best.
Why Do You Have Exam Nerves?
There could be any number of reasons. Perhaps you learned from your home environment that anything less than perfection wasn’t good enough, perhaps you learned the consequences of failure from a particularly tough teacher, perhaps it comes from being mocked or bullied or criticised by your peers. The reasons why you have exam nerves are completely individual.
