No matter how old you are or how smart you are, when you sit down to take a test, you’re bound to feel slightly nervous. That’s perfectly natural. However, a full-blown case of test taking anxiety is not.
Test anxiety comes with some very serious symptoms, including:
– Physical discomfort, like nausea, sweaty palms, headaches, and muscle tension
– Feeling so overwhelmed that you can’t concentrate or organize your thoughts
– “Drawing a blank” during the test, even though you’ve done plenty of studying
– Feeling like you’re going to fail, no matter what
Test taking anxiety is so serious that it can hold very intelligent people back; many people have even dropped out of school over it! Before you let your test anxiety get that severe, take advantage of the benefits of test anxiety hypnosis.
Hypnosis can help reprogram your mind and facilitate behavioral change.

Test anxiety hypnosis is effective because it addresses 3 issues that lead to test taking anxiety:
1. It can help you relax
Consciously, you may know that calming down during a test will help you do better. However, your subconscious mind is the one running the show. If your subconscious goes into “overdrive” when you get to a question that you don’t know the answer to, it can impact you for the rest of the test.
As part of your test anxiety treatment, you might be told to visualize yourself sitting calmly in your chair, writing down the correct answers, and acing the test. By convincing your subconscious that taking a test can be a pleasant experience, you will be much more likely to relax when test time rolls around.
2. It can help you eliminate unnecessary pressure
Many people suffer from test taking anxiety because they have convinced themselves that their entire identity revolves around their grades. Test anxiety hypnosis can counteract this by training your subconscious to focus on the other aspects that make up your life – like your family, friends, and hobbies.
Once your subconscious understands that there are many things that make up your identity – and that your grades are only part of the equation – you will stop putting so much pressure on yourself.
3. It can help combat low self-esteem
If your subconscious is constantly telling you that you’re not good enough or smart enough, you will always believe that you’re going to fail. The only way to overcome this problem is to change the way your subconscious perceives your ability to perform and take tests
As a result, many test anxiety hypnosis sessions focus on boosting your self-esteem, so that you can go into every test thinking that you’re going to do well.
Hypnosis is a natural state, that when achieved, allows your hypnotist to access your subconscious mind. When you watch a movie, read a book, or focus on a project at work and lose track of time, you are experiencing hypnosis. Once a client is guided into hypnosis, we at the NY Hypnosis Institute can then give positive suggestions directly to the subconscious mind.
There is also a chance that something in your past is to blame. However, it’s not uncommon for the subconscious mind to blow things out of proportion, so you may not even remember the past event that has led to your current anxiety!
During a New York Hypnosis test anxiety hypnosis session, you can identify the event from your past that has been blown out of proportion. Your hypnotist can then reframe the way your subconscious mind perceives that event, allowing the fear and anxiety to be released. Essentially your hypnotist will teach your subconscious mind that those negative experiences from your past no longer need to impact you in a negative way.
We will identify the feelings and triggers you experience so that the suggestions given to your subconscious mind will be tailored to your specific challenge. With the combination of regression and suggestions the fear can be eliminated in just a few sessions.
