This common problem also known as Performance Anxiety has probably lost more people more opportunities than any other psychological problem. The problem begins as Anxiety, before an event such as an interview or exam. Nervous chemicals build in the candidate’s body which can cause disappointment in performance and often a negative outcome.
The next time the candidate attends an interview or exam history often repeats itself. This may be because of conscious thoughts such as “I hope I don’t fall apart like last time” bringing memories of the previous occasion to the forefront of the mind. Alternatively, there may be no conscious thoughts about the past history nevertheless the anxiety may still return through the same thought process which causes a piece of music from our teenage years to bring back strong feelings, which we may or may not be able to identify. This memory is stored in the subconscious mind.
With the help of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy you can learn to recognise negative rumination and adopt a calm, confident approach which will be stored in your subconscious for similar future situations thereby breaking unhelpful thought patterns and helping you take back control and perform at your best to achieve your goals.
