Summer can be an Anxious time for those in their late teens and early twenties
Summertime is supposed to be a time of relaxation and holidays in the academic calendar but for school leavers and students who are waiting for exam results it can be a particularly nerve wracking experience! It is not just the anticipation of what grades they have achieved but it is the implication of what those grades may mean. For some school leavers, their grades may mean the difference between going off to university or finding that first job. Anxiety can often kick in at this stage in someone’s life as they approach, possibly for the first time, being responsible for themselves and think about moving away from their families.
Cognitive Hypnotherapy can successfully change how a student or school leaver deals with the various pressures of going to University or approaching the next stage in their lives. Cognitive Hypnotherapy can be used effectively to reduce general and social anxiety and increase confidence by pinpointing and positively changing the learnt beliefs that are holding individuals back from enjoying and achieving the things they want in their lives.
Heading off to university or landing that first job is supposed to be an exciting time, it is important that the anxiety that can arise from this period of life change is addressed and resolved, helping individuals to enjoy their life experiences and reach their potential.
