Many of us will get to experience exams in our lifetime and with that come exam nerves. The sensation of butterflies in our stomachs, sweaty palms, racing hearts and the fear of our memories failing us. For many, these sensations pass without too much worry but for some, the feelings are so overwhelming it can cause them to achieve well below their skill level or even fail.

How Can Hypnotherapy Help Exam Nerves?
