Performance anxiety and Exam Stress

Performing in front of an audience, sports competitions, or taking exams and assessments can cause stress resulting in you feeling that you were not able to show your best work. Hypnotherapy can help to make you feel less anxious and more in control, helping you to be the best when it matters.

What is hypnotherapy for performance?

I use a variety of techniques to help you improve your confidence and to access the skills, knowledge and resources you need in high pressure situations so you can be successful.  I work with you to:

  • increase your confidence

  • stay in intellectual control 

  • avoid freezing under pressure

  • stay relaxed and calm on the day

  • access your skills and knowledge when you need them

  • rehearse different scenarios

How does hypnotherapy for performance anxiety work?

I will help you understand how the brain works under pressure and help you use this knowledge to conquer nerves while accessing your skills, and knowledge. I will help you to learn physical and mental relaxation techniques so you can stay in intellectual control.


Working together, we will increase your confidence and help you to remove any self limiting beliefs that may be holding you back. We will also use visualisation techniques to help you mentally rehearse for success. These techniques are used by top athletes for successful performance.

Who is performance hypnotherapy for?

I have worked with tennis players, boxers, basketball players and golfers on sports performance. I have worked with university students from many different institutions, including Cambridge and Oxford Universities, on preparing for exams and assessments.


I have also helped people prepare for professional exams and assessments such as panel interviews for professional associations. I have helped clients prepare for interviews, driving tests and other kinds of speaking challenges such as presentations, board meetings and pitches.

This is a positive process designed to give you the confidence and self esteem that you need to be successful.
