Imagine feeling, calm, confident and relaxed at your next interview…
There’s nothing worse than knowing you have prepared well for an interview and then seeing your best efforts go to waste because you have become overwhelmed by nerves.
Feeling nervous is a natural emotion for most people and when kept in perspective, these feelings can actually help to motivate us and focus our minds. However, when these feelings become too intense they can threaten our performance, make us extremely anxious and even cause us to underachieve. We all realise that there is no substitute for working hard to ensure that we have prepared as best we can for a forthcoming interview. But anxiety and nervousness can affect even the smartest among us and adversely affect performance on the day.
We can all identify with the challenges of preparing for an interview, not to mention the sweaty palms, butterflies in the stomach and racing heartbeat. We understand that a bit of adrenalin is no bad thing but for some of us that fear gets out of control and this is when it becomes problematic.
Interview nerves can become so intense, that they lead to anxiety attacks, loss of appetite or even insomnia and unchecked this kind of worry can have a big impact on our unconscious mind, leading to more general, longer term performance based anxiety issues.
If we constantly reconfirm this negative perception of our self it can create a barrier to success because our thoughts influence our behaviour and if we think we are likely to fail then we probably will. Of course, the reverse also holds true. Feeling calm, relaxed, focused and confident when preparing for an interview means you will be much more likely to achieve your full potential and this is where the Wisdom Room can help.
Integrated Mind Therapy can help to change and redefine your perceptions of your own abilities and resources and change the negative perceptions we have of ourselves. This can have a tremendous effect on the way you think and therefore the way that you feel and behave, helping you to change your behaviour and achieve your goals.
Here at the Wisdom Room, we use a combination of Integrated Hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to help you overcome your anxiety by simultaneously retraining both the conscious and unconscious parts of your mind. As a result you should be left feeling physically more relaxed, mentally calmer and altogether more confident about the whole interview process.
Don’t be afraid to take the first step. Remember that facing your fear and making a change is the beginning of the path to wisdom and we are here to give you a helping hand.
