Exam, Audition & Performance Nerves

A little bit of adrenaline is good prior to an exam, performance or an audition but when the nerves cause sweaty palms, a racing heart and a pure dread then it is counter productive.

Do you find yourself or your son or daughter worrying about how nervous you will get? You know it is not logical but you cannot help yourself. These thoughts emanate from your unconscious mind and Hypnotherapy can help you to feel calmer and well-prepared.

Hypnotherapy works well on young adults 15 and over, perfect for GCSEs and A levels. See also Counselling

Here’s what some clients have said:

“It was really strange I did not have any nerves what so ever and thought before answering any questions I should find out today or early next week if I get invited back for second round interviews.”

“Feel really good actually, and I’m not just saying that to reassure you, I’m eating really well, studying really well, so I feel very focused and motivated. And I haven’t had any anxiety or any lows on at least a week which is strange but good…thank you”

Tooba (16), Erith

“Dear Karen, Just a quick note to say thank you for the recent sessions to quell pre-interview nerves. It was a real defining moment in my career and your guidance ensued I was able to remain focused on the day and secure the position.
Really invaluable experience and shall certainly recommend your unique and professional service to others. Kindest regards

“I am feeling so good now Karen, thank you. It is so great having a good night’s sleep at last and I have been waking up in the morning feeling really motivated to study. I’ve just got straight to revising and I’m actually really enjoying it. The anxiety has just disappeared, it feels like a miracle. I had been carrying it around for so long it almost feels strange to no longer feel anxious, it is such a relief.

Georgia (17), Buckhurst Hill

Hi Karen, I just got and offer from Exeter and UEA! (24.02.16)….I know I will be guaranteed a good night’s sleep from the tapes…I got an offer from Bath spa (26.02.16) which was the first audition after the session we did on managing pre-audition nerves and I’m so thankful

Odette, Chigwell

“Hi Karen, it’s been such a good day! I woke up for the first time before an audition feeling positive and looking forward to the day and armed with a banana I found I could be totally relaxed in my audition! I cannot thank you enough I am so happy this has worked X”

Odette, Chigwell

“I am so pleased with the results of my 3 sessions of Hypnotherapy . I was suffering from insomnia and anxiety,  felt constantly tired as well as stressed and anxious most of the time. I am an aspiring actress and also found auditions nerve racking. Now all that has changed. I now sleeps well every night. At my audition on Saturday I felt totally calm with no nerves and was totally in the zone and gave best performance. I didn’t worry about anyone around watching me perform and just felt very relaxed. In life generally I now feel relaxed, and so very relieved, I can hardly believe the transformation. One very happy lady”

Odette, Chigwell

“Hi Karen ….It (the hypnotherapy) made a massive difference I’m so impressed I qualified 2nd out of 28 riders to put me in to the world championships made to the 1/8 finals, I am placed 13th overall in world championships which I’m more than happy with….. Thank you very much for your help.”

Stephen, Chingford

 “I personally found my hypnotherapy session with Karen extremely beneficial. Designed to help with pre-exam nerves and anxiety before any musical performance, it fulfilled this criteria, as well as put my mind at ease, removing all tensions and present worries weighing me down at the time. I walked out of my session feeling calmer, relaxed, less stressed, and in turn, more confident about how I approached everyday tasks. I would therefore highly recommend Karen’s hypnotherapy sessions, for I can guarantee it will help you no matter what the session is for.”        

Hana, 17, Chigwell

“Every time I have a session with Karen I feel invigorated, calm and collected. And I’m able to incorporate the helpful techniques she teaches me into daily life as much as possible”
