Integrated Therapeutic Approach for Taking Exams with Confidence

Our strategy for tackling exam nerves integrates Clinical Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy, Counselling, NLP, and Psychology, each contributing to a holistic solution:

Clinical Hypnotherapy

We employ hypnotherapy to access the subconscious mind, addressing the deep-seated anxieties and stressors associated with exams. This method helps embed positive suggestions and coping strategies to manage exam-related stress effectively.


Involves exploring underlying emotional triggers that contribute to exam nerves. Understanding these psychological aspects is critical to developing strategies for overcoming fears and boosting confidence.


Provides a supportive space where students can openly discuss their exam-related concerns—counselling aids in identifying personal stressors and developing practical solutions for managing them.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

Utilises techniques to change negative thought patterns and behaviours associated with exam stress. NLP helps reshape perceptions and responses towards exams.


Incorporates cognitive-behavioural strategies to manage anxiety and improve focus. This includes relaxation training, stress reduction techniques, and methods to enhance memory and concentration.

By combining these methodologies, we offer a tailored approach to managing exam nerves, reducing anxiety, enhancing study effectiveness, and fostering a confident approach to exams.

Session Fees and Number of Sessions Required

Our Exam Nerves Hypnotherapy service is offered with a clear and straightforward fee structure:

Fee Per Session: Each one-hour session is priced at £190.

The number of sessions required to address exam nerves effectively varies depending on the individual’s specific needs and response to hypnotherapy. Some students may experience significant relief from their exam anxiety within a few sessions. In contrast, others might benefit from a more extended series to thoroughly address deeper-rooted fears and build robust coping mechanisms.
