It is that time of year again. For the parents, it is the most wonderful time of the year. For kids, it is fear and loathing all over again after a summer of bliss. For many students, the school year is riddled with horrible anxiety and dread. Just mentioning the word,"test," brings with it the feelings of failure, anxiety, nausea, panic, and more. Standard therapy alone often takes a long time, but have you tried hypnosis?
Test anxiety is very real to those students who have to live it. As a child, I was paralyzed with fear when it came to taking tests. I wish I had learned about hypnosis back then. What is wonderful about hypnosis is that we are able to guide the person experiencing the test anxiety and essentially eliminate the fear. Under hypnosis, the student will explore the subconscious effects tests have on the mind and the body We will reinstall feelings of confidence and promote a general sense of well being.
Overall, treatment for test anxiety is very short. Generally speaking, the treatment should be less than 5 sessions. Of course, there are exceptions to every case, and some people need less while some need more.
Give us a call if you or your child is experiencing test anxiety
