Be more prepared...
I provide interview preparation along with hypnotherapy to help you build more confidence and land the job you desire.
It can be hard to apply for a position if you have not been on the market for a while or have recently lost your job and is forced to find a new one soon. Unfortunately, desperation is not your friend when it comes to an interview.
What happens to us during an interview?
During a stressful interview our thinking brain shuts down because we are nervous, we experience pressure to perform. If we rehearse the interview process a few times, you will be more relaxed and balanced. You will be able to achieve better performance and reach your full potential during the actual interview.
During hypnotherapy we calm your brain, your mind will be more open to suggestions and solutions than problems. The more you train your brain, the quicker and solution-focused the mind becomes. During an interview, it will provide the fantastic answers you are looking for.
You can book either the single session or the three times package, or we can tailor a package to suit your needs. We will make sure that the final mock session is close to your real interview.
All job experience leads somewhere….
There is no such thing as a clear pathway...In the past people had jobs for life, there were fewer options, less information. Nowadays if we are brave and determined we can choose a profession we enjoy, or develop our skills and study while having a "safe" and less interesting job. It is okay to be confused about directions. The solution-focused step-by-step method along with hypnotherapy can help you if you feel lost about your career choices.
When I was 18, I wanted to work in hotel management after spending my summers doing hospitality work experience in France, so I gained all the necessary qualifications. What I liked about hotels was engaging with people as I realised they felt better after talking to me. On top of that, I chose to specialise in event management at university since I loved organising. It felt like a puzzle and involved working with a lot of people. I came to London with a clear aim to became an event manager organizing high-profile events. So I very consciously started to build my resume to achieve this ultimate goal.
My steps were :
Hotel Receptionist + Group Booking Specialist -> Guest Relations Coordinator + Team Leader->Events Coordinator position for years where I have gained all the relevant experience and had a wonderful mentor ->Senior Events Executive
After achieving my goal of running large events, unfortunately, I had to realise that I was not happy. I felt overworked, drained and frustrated. As I became overstressed, it was my anxious personality which pushed me for perfection. In my mind failure was not an option. A leg accident had to happen in order to find a different career path. Reiki and alternative therapies came into my life and as I wanted to learn more I ended up exploring these in-depth. I realised that all of these past positions and enthusiasm had one thing in common, working with people and helping them. Finally, I decided to move to a calmer office job which allowed me to dedicate the necessary time to gain all my therapy qualifications. Interestingly this new working environment helped me to evolve further in the admin world as well by gaining further office, events and even HR experience.
As you can see on my example there are no clear pathways. Life constantly changes and occasionally it can throw interesting obstacles into your way which might completely change your direction.
You can learn from every position and transform all those gained skills.
How can anxiety be a tool to get a job?
Anxiety means that you are nervous, your stomach is not assisting you, you are an overthinker, you want to perform at your best. However you can also use anxiety to your advantage: it also means that you are detail-oriented, forward - planning, well-organised and working hard to get things done.
During an initial consultation, we talk about how I can help you, I explain how the brain works in relation to your struggle. You will receive access to effective techniques you can practice every day for a calmer mind. You will also receive a link to my sleep tape which helps to regulate sleep patterns, helps to reduce stress and boosts your confidence.
I am not a YOLO moment person, I can get lost in the details, I can overthink, overstress but I learned how to make my anxiety work for me instead of against me. It took me a long time to accept myself. I used to admire the “whatevs” people who can talk in front of large audiences. Guess what? Most of them were not born like that, they worked hard and developed their skills. Professional life is all about practice and preparation.
Think about the Olympians: how much hard work is behind each success story? The energy and the sheer amount of practice they have to put into their performance in order to succeed…Give yourself time. Let’s practice your interview skills and work on your anxiety with hypnotherapy.
We cannot avoid stress, but we can learn how to react to it and use it occasionally to our advantage.
