Test / Interview Anxiety

The fear of taking tests is a perfectly normal, natural and rational human response. Whenever it comes to anything where we perceive ourselves as capable of being judged or facing the possibility of rejection or failure, it is quite normal to feel some level of nervousness or jitteriness. However, for some of us, test taking can become an absolute nightmare!

Some people can find themselves living in a constant state of dread of that moment when their brains simply “go blank” on them. Others experience gastrointestinal problems, headaches, profuse sweating and, for a smaller proportion of the population, full-blown panic attacks.
And, unfortunately, these more severe symptoms are actually more commonplace than you would imagine. As a matter of fact, test anxiety has become so wide-spread that it has even been identified as a debilitating psychological syndrome by the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Although the reasons for test and interview anxiety can be a number of things – You may have failed a test before and the consequences were unraveling to you. You may have “gone blank” when a tough question came your way, or it may have been a completely different kind of situation that left you feeling out of control or afraid of being judged or rejected. In any case, the fear and anxiety accompanied with taking a test or being interviewed needs to be dealt with and taken care of in order for you to stand the very best chances of success in all areas of your life!

When it comes to working with you on your test and interview anxieties, I can help you to, literally, re-program your deepest, unconscious thoughts and feelings such that you will walk in to that test or interview feeling calm, confident and absolutely certain of yourself.
Of course that is not to say you will become overly-confident or foolhardy and not prepare for the big day. Rather, it is to say that once you do prepare, you will finally be able to feel confident that all the right information will “come to you” at the right times and that you are capable of doing great!

Just imagine that difference – Imagine being able to finally get a good night’s sleep right before your “big day”. Imagine waking up that morning feeling great, confident and ready to knock their socks off. Now, imagine walking in to that room and having all the right information come to you easily and effortlessly… That is what test taking is like for some people out there and that is what it should be like for you!

Give me a call today and let us finally make these dreaded anxieties a part of your past forevermore!

Fear of Doctors / Medical Procedures


Fear of Failure


Fear of Public Speaking / Stage Fright

Walking up to the podium, your mouth gets dry. Your mind starts to go blank. You feel lightheaded and dizzy. Your heart is beating a mile a minute and you are sweating through your clothes. You look out into the crowd of people you are about to address and you realize that you might just lose your lunch.

Many people get a little nervous when they have to give a speech or stand up in front of people to perform, no matter how big or small the crowd is. Sometimes this rush of adrenaline can help you, but those who have stage fright and fear of speaking in public are actually unable to proceed with their presentation at all because the fear is too great. Some will go into a full blown panic attack and simply shut down.

If you have a fear of public speaking or experience stage fright then you know how embarrassing it can be. You feel as if every single person is intently studying you and judging everything you do and say. It’s like you are on stage so that they can all grab their pens and notebooks to give you a detailed evaluation on EVERYTHING you managed to do wrong. It’s overwhelming and once you have experienced this fear to great lengths, you can find yourself avoiding such instances at all costs.

The situation might just be a speech at a wedding or a work presentation. It might be a job interview or maybe a quick introduction at a social event. Whatever it is, your body is treating is as a dangerous situation. Your subconscious has triggered your conscious mid to react as if something bad will undoubtedly happen and you are just stuck there waiting there for it.

The solution to this fear is to eliminate the anxiety and the fear. By use of hypnotherapy you will gain more confidence, address the issues that are causing you fear and retrain your thinking so that these fears are completely under control and eliminated when it comes to these situations.

Visualize yourself confidently walking up to that same podium. The words flow freely and all you can see are smiles in the audience as you deliver your impeccable speech. You are able to answer questions and you feel at ease and even if you mess up, something in your mind just tells you “That’s OK, nobody’s perfect” and you still continue giving an amazing presentation… Believe it or not, that is the way public speaking is meant to be!

By firstly changing your internal beliefs to being able to believe that the event will go fantastically instead of disastrously and then by, literally, re-training your unconscious reaction to become one of confidence, poise and self-trust, you will be able to achieve success when speaking in front of others.

Using the powerful (and often immediate) sciences of Hypnosis, NLP and EFT, we will bring you to a place where you can see a wonderful outcome and future as a person who can speak with complete poise and assurance – I’ve seen it happen THOUSANDS of times before and IT CAN HAPPEN FOR YOU TOO!

Your standing ovation awaits….
