novel learning experience is being offered by Anne M. Courtney
(Consulting Hypnotist) in the form of a workshop designed to
maximise your learning potential using Self Hypnosis. If you
are anxious about studying, feel that you
do not get the most out of the time you spend studying, or
find it hard to even get down to the act of studying,
maybe avoiding or putting off studying certain
subjects, then this course is for you. This course also includes mental preparation for examinations.
A study carried out by Wark in 1996 showed how the grade point averages
of 51 college students improved significantly after being taught self
hypnosis to improve their learning skills (American
Journal of Clinical Hypnosis).
Anne tailors her courses to suit the needs of the participants and the
courses are streamed to cater for the following cohorts:
Leaving Certificate students
Junior Certificate students
Adult learners returning to Secondary school or Third Level education
First year students about to start the academic year at College or
Employees facing learning challenges in the workplace
Anne has been lecturing at IT Tralee
for the last 18 years and with a Masters in the Management of Education
under her belt, has a lot of experience working with all kinds of
learning environments from academia to industry. She is also a
certified hypnotist with her own private practice located 5 miles out
of Tralee town
and is a member in good standing of the National Guild of Hypnotists,
an American organisation which has over 10,000 members worldwide and
which is dedicated to the promotion of excellence and standards in the
training of hypnotherapists. She reports that many adult
learners who have spent years in the workplace return to Third Level
education whether full time or part time with some trepidation and
anxiety. There are many worries, including concerns about
being able to cope with the demands of their chosen course.
The mature student may have to juggle work and family commitments
alongside attending their chosen course and then have to find the time
to study and prepare for examinations. It is well
known that if you are feeling stressed out, especially from many of the
reasons mentioned already, that you may not be able to make the most of
your study session. It is important therefore with all these pressures
in mind, that the mature student maximise the output from the time they
put aside to study.
