I am a 44 year old male who has a very poor memory. I have tried to study for various exams over the years but after I study within a few hours I have forgot everything I have just read, this has been going on for years.
I have attended a few hypnotherapists who couldn’t seem to hypnotise me, one of them even said that due to a traumatic childhood I couldn’t be hypnotised and even if I could it wouldn’t help with my memory.
I am currently employed as a prison officer and I am so desperate to learn/study a new skill to get out of the job am in I feel with a poor memory I am destined to stay in the job for ever.
Any comments/help would be appreciatedJuly 28, 2015 at 2:44 pm #1166
Are you just reading to study? I find this ineffective. Even a simple change such as highlighting the important bits can help with retention.
Even better is writing out notes by hand.
You should also take practice questions a short time after studying so that you will have to use your memory to help ‘lock in’ the information you have (hopefully) absorbed
I’m sure one of Glenn’s memory audio tracks would be useful tooSeptember 4, 2016 at 10:44 am #1786
This is Russ from Glenn’s team. Sorry for the delayed reply. As doddsy89 suggests, Glenn does have hypnotherapy recordings to help with memory issues:
He also has one specifically for exams, you might be interested in this product has includes both titles together: https://www.hypnosisaudio.com/products/develop-powerful-memory-overcome-exam-nerves-mp3s
With regard to what you were told by previous therapists, it’s absolutely not the case that a traumatic childhood prevents you being hypnotised. And hypnotherapy can most definitely help with memory problems.
One to one Hypnotherapy sessions are very good at getting the root cause, usually through regression techniques. The Hypnotherapy Directory have well trained therapists all over the UK.
Please make sure that any therapist you choose is affiliated with a recognised organisation.
I hope this helps, but if I can assist with anything else please let me know.
