Test AnxietyHypnotherapy and Hypnobalancing™ in Berlin
Test anxiety is a type of performance anxiety. It is like when some people get nervous speaking to large crowds. Anxiety associated with tests is very common and quite normal. Some amount of anxiety can help to be alert during the test. However, when the level of anxiety is so high that it takes away the ability to think clearly and perform best during the test, that is a problem.
Test anxiety occurs for a number of reasons and isn’t the same for everyone. Some people fear exams because entry fear failure. Others get anxious for totally different reasons.
For some people, the fear of tests starts well before the day of the test. This is called anticipatory anxiety. While some people get anticipatory anxiety a few hours before the start of the test, others experience it days or even weeks before they know they must take the test. Even worse, some people have panic attacks when an unscheduled test is given.
Sources of test anxiety
The most common reasons are:
- Fear of failure
While the pressure to perform can act as a motivator, it can also be devastating to individuals who tie their self-worth to the outcome of a test.
- Lack of preparation
Waiting until the last minute or not studying at all can leave individuals feeling anxious and overwhelmed.

Previous problems or bad experiences with test-taking can lead to a negative mindset and influence performance on future tests.
Hypnotherapy is a very effective form of treating stress and anxiety. Clients reported a significant reduction in test anxiety and improvement in academic achievement.
Self-hypnosis has helped many patients with stress. Many sufferers usually report very quickly a noticeable improvement. Pondering, fears, mental and physical tension can be additionally reduced by self-hypnosis. Therefore, I teach my patients self-hypnosis to supplement the hypnosis sessions.
After positive trance experiences have been made with my support, self-hypnosis can be learned very quickly. This helps them to progress self-determined outside the therapy. It accelerates the process, deepens and consolidates the achievements. This also promotes the independence of the clients. A good therapist will be superfluous as soon as possible. Self-hypnosis is an excellent self-help method that can be used beyond the actual topic.
