Exam Success Hypnotherapy: So you’ve done all the revision, planned out your approach and done everything you can to nail the exam. Or have you? Ever considered passing your exams with a little help from hypnotherapy? Apparently, Hypnosis is a natural state in which everyone moves in and out of every day. We experience hypnosis when day-dreaming or when we have our attention intensely focused on something of interest. In this altered state of awareness, our unconscious mind is more open and receptive to ideas and suggestion. Exam Success Hypnotherapy is a free app that’s compatible with iPhone, iPod touch or iPad and it really could be the difference between pass and fail – read the reviews, there are several satisfied customers. Sweet dreams.
