Hypnotherapy Testimonial For Overcoming Interview Nerves

Going for an interview is very much like an exam.  No matter how knowledgeable you are about your industry, performance and delivery are what you get judged on, as much as your knowledge of the subject matter.  The prospective employer expects you to sell yourself and your abilities.  This does not always seem fair and for a variety of reasons, many people find this daunting and flunk one interview after the other.

Are There Risks To People Who Are Hypnotized If They Have Epilepsy or Mental Health Disorders?

A few people asked me this question today during the broadcast of the first episode of ITV's You’re Back In The Room starring Keith Barrie.

Are You Held Back By a Friday 13th Phobia?

According to the Stress Management Center and Phobia Institute in Asheville, North Carolina, approximately 17 to 21 million US citizens are affected by a fear of Friday the 13th.  This makes it the most feared day and date in history.
