Conquering interview nerves/anxiety

Using NLP and Hypnotherapy to Overcome Interview Nerves

A job interview.  A performance review.  A promotion interview.  University selection.  Selecting a roommate.  These are all different kinds of interviews, and if you’re like most people you have at least some level of anxiety and nervousness about them.  Whether you suffer from just minor nerves or you find your interview nerves to be paralysing, we can help you overcome them and create the confidence you need to do well in any situation.

The Dread Of Anticipation

For many people, the worry and fear related to an interview situation begin weeks ahead of the actual event.  They feel apprehensive, their minds run wild with imaginary situations, and they lose sleep because of incessant worrying and fear.  This kind of anticipation only serves to make interviewing harder, as it creates a sense of worry, dread, and leaves you feeling extremely tired.  Your mind “tells” you the interview will not go well, and so that’s exactly what happens.

Change Your Approach And Change The Results

A much better approach is to learn how to use your mind in positive ways to prepare for and execute great interviews.   Instead of visualizing yourself getting flustered and tongue-tied during an interview, you can learn how to see yourself as confident, articulate, and successful during an interview.  You can learn how to use your mind in ways that are positive and productive, allowing you to invent your own success rather than invent your own struggles.

How Do NLP And Hypnotherapy Help?

NLP and hypnotherapy work together to influence your conscious mind and your unconscious mind.  Your practitioner will teach your conscious mind how to focus on positive things rather than negative things, giving you the freedom to let go of old patterns and start taking advantage of your true inner worth.  Working with hypnosis and your unconscious mind, your practitioner will re-pattern the unconscious responses you’ve made in the past and help your unconscious create a new, more powerful pattern that takes advantage of your tremendous inner resources.


But how does this actually occur?  Think for a moment about what you typically do when preparing for an interview.  You review your qualifications, anticipate and practice likely questions, research the interviewer’s organisation, plan your travel route, and the like.  All of these things are important, but they can be easily overshadowed if your mind and imagination take over and start focusing on imaginary disasters rather than practical preparation.  With NLP and hypnotherapy, you will learn how to do the practical preparation for interviews while also using your mind and imagination in positive, productive ways as well.

How Long Will Treatment Take?

Because NLP and hypnotherapy work together to transform your unconscious and conscious mind, treatment is usually quite rapid and permanent.  In most cases you can overcome your interview nerves (even if they have been with you for many years) in just one or two one-hour sessions.  Imagine how good it will feel to get rid of interview nerves once and for all!
