One of the most reliable uses of Hypnosis is in the field of student studying and test taking. There are many types of test anxieties. Such as, fear of tests, freezing and forgetting material that you know you know but cannot recall during a test, confidence problems, and mental blocks that sabotage testing performance. The relaxation of the hypnotic trance itself lowers anxiety and lets your body and mind relearn a positive, confident, and comfortable response to taking tests. It has been used successfully to treat test-taking anxiety at the high school, college, graduate, and professional board examination levels.
