How Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis Can Help

Hypnotherapy is a type of therapy that focuses on helping you reach a different state of mind – the trance state. The word “hypnosis” comes from ancient Greek and means “sleep.” One way to understand hypnotherapy is as a sleep-like state that can be used for therapeutic purposes. Hypnosis has been used in many cultures for centuries, dating back to ancient Egyptian times where it was used as a form of healing. Hypnotherapy has been proven effective in treating a number of disorders and conditions including: addiction, depression, PTSD, anxiety, OCD, and weight loss.

    Find out what is causing your anxiety by asking yourself what situation makes you nervous.
    Prepare yourself for the test by knowing the professor's expectations for that particular class.
    Focus on why you are taking the test and what will happen if you do not take it well.
    Write down all of your thoughts before the test starts so that it can help take your mind off of them during the exam.
