STORY TIME "How I almost let my brain ruin everything"

Written by Sandra Bain

 The day has finally arrived. Tomorrow, is the day of my Driving Test. I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time now, but for some reason, I have this uncontrollable, gut wrenching feeling in the pit of my stomach. Why am I so nervous? I’ve had a whole year to practice, this should be easy.

I found it really hard to get to sleep, as I was imagining all the potentially bad situations, I could find myself in. Then all the “What If’s” started to emerge…

What if…I fail? What if…I cause an accident? What if…an ambulance comes up behind me? What if…someone runs a red light? What if…I run the red light? What if…I don’t do my parallel park right? What if…the examiner isn’t nice to me? What if…they take me somewhere I don’t know? What if…I don’t understand where they want me to go? What if…I turn left instead of right?

Why do people get so nervous before taking their practical driving test?

Written by Sandra Bain

It’s completely understandable that students get nervous before their big test day. For most students, it’s the biggest day of their lives so far and a day which they will remember for the rest of their lives.

Personally, I think, if you’re not even slightly nervous, then there’s something wrong with you.

But getting TOO nervous can cause a lot of unnecessary stress and anxiety on the day of the test. And it is one of the biggest reasons, why otherwise competent drivers, end up failing their drivers test.

I’ve recently written a blog post about Hypnosis, outlining its benefits and even a case study proving it can help train the mind while you’re in a hypnotic trance, or even asleep. Click Here to read more...

What is Hypnosis?

Written by Sandra Bain

Hypnosis is a highly effective and proven technique, which allows you to gain mastery over your own body and the calming of your mind. It uses the hypnotic state, which enables changes in perception and memory and a major increase in response to suggestion.

Hypnotherapy can be performed in person (face to face) or via specifically generated Hypnosis recordings which uses guided relaxation, intense concentration, visualisation and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness that is sometimes called a trance.

Whilst in this trance-like state, your subconscious mind absorbs the words and suggestions being said during the guided hypnosis session, which ultimately “reprograms” your way of thinking.
