OVERCOMING TEST ANXIETY:
A few weeks ago, I was preparing for the biggest test of my life. My nerves were on edge, and I was unable to sleep for days due to this test. I worked with Sandra Drenner for hypnotherapy to relieve the anxiety. The entire process was incredibly relaxing and left me feeling like I could conquer the world. Two days later, I took my test, no anxieties, no stress, just pure calmness; I passed my test with only missing 3 questions! I don’t think that I could have done so well without Sandra’s help. Her skills, reminders, and calming effect stayed with me throughout the entire test and I finished two hours early. Sandra is very gifted in what she is passionate about most, and I couldn’t thank her more for all of her help.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN THE FIRST SESSION:
In the first session a detailed interview will take place after you complete a questionnaire. It is important to know not just the reason for your visit but any underlying emotional or physical concerns you may have. Once the interview is completed, there is a brief educational time.
The definition of hypnosis is: “A natural, yet altered state where selective thinking is maintained.”
Which means your focus is more internal than external.
As you understand this natural state and have any questions or concerns answered, it enables you to not only feel safe using this process, but to understand how the subconscious mind works. It is within the subconscious that lasting change occurs, which produces a lasting difference in your feelings and behaviors.
Once the educational piece is completed, we will begin the trance work. Responses to trance include deep relaxation, or a light feeling and sometimes the skin feeling tingly. There are many therapies that can be utilized in hypnosis. We will decide them together before trance so that you feel safe and fully informed.
After the trance is completed, there are a few minutes to discuss your experience and the next steps that need to be taken. Homework is assigned, which may include positive affirmations to read and write, self-visualization daily of your goal and listening to a self-hypnosis recording. Your participation in your change and transformation is vital. The more one utilizes hypnosis on a regular basis, the greater the results.
