As an undergraduate at New York University I learned self-hypnosis for studying and taking exams.  I used this technique, which focuses on harnessing the abilities of the unconscious mind, quite successfully throughout undergraduate and graduate school and never once blocked on an exam.  Quite the contrary, I had effective recall of what I had studied and remained calm during exams when other students around me were riddled with test-taking anxiety.

Subsequently I have taught this easy to learn self-hypnosis technique to students and adults of all ages who have also reported excellent results using it.

Typically I meet with each student for one 50-60 minute session in which

I gather information about how the student currently studies, any psychological, environmental and/or physiological blocks interfering with studying or exam taking, and address those as best I can prior to, and in constructing the individualized part of the protocol.

I then teach this self-hypnosis technique and take the student through it via hypnosis so they have a direct experience of how to put themselves into a hypnotic state.  The actual experience of the self-hypnosis is very important, and quite pleasurable.

If a student wishes to be seen for further treatment they can, but this is not necessary.
