Can a Hypnotherapist Help Me with "Performance Stress" Anxiety in Exams and Interviews?
Often this kind of ’Performance stress’ has its roots in a previous experience in which we did not perform as well as we wanted to, and it's important to note this can be an accurate assessment of how we performed or an overly negative, critical one.
The memory of that event, (whether real or not) we go over in our minds, rethinking it, how we could have behaved differently, what we should and shouldn't have said, what we needed to remember and what we should have written etc. Eventually, from the brain's perspective instead of having just one single event that did not go as well as we would have liked it to, we now have a very ‘strong memory' stored in the brain of that event happening on a number of occasions and they ALL WENT BADLY!
As we now have so many memories (from the brain's perspective) of that situation going badly, it assesses that situation and any similar ones as a threat and instigates a stress/anxiety response within the body with each similar situation that occurs to encourage you to avoid them; hence the increased heart rate, palpitations, feeling faint, sick, mind going blank and all the other symptoms we can experience.
