Did you know that most learners are spending a lot of time studying but using “suboptimal” study techniques? 

Understand what effective studying means in this excerpt from Dr Suzanne Fergus’ book: Study Smarter.



I had a wonderful hypnotherapy session with Suzanne for stress related issues.

I was feeling stressed particularly at work, I dreaded every Monday. I suffered with shoulder pain most likely linked to the work stress and tension. I knew about hypnotherapy and worked with Suzanne.

She has a lovely reassuring manner and professional approach, putting me immediately at my ease.

Straight after the session I felt very relaxed and as though a weight had been lifted from my shoulders.

I’m delighted to say that two weeks later I’m continuing to reap the benefits from my session, with my stress level dramatically reduced. At work there was a new project that would normally have stressed me out. Instead I was surprised how calmly I dealt with it all. I feel like I have found myself again. I haven’t needed painkillers for my shoulder pain either. Wow!

I was finding it impossible to get any of the masses of information in my head- having no clue on what to focus on and I then effectively spent hours looking at but could not recall when asked using purely rote learning.

After my first session with Suzanne talking about what I currently do in terms of studying and what she advised, I went away to apply some of the skills I had learnt.

I honestly felt enlightened, after feeling so lost in my studies- wishing for the information to get through to me, it finally did- and instead of spending masses of time on a subject learning nothing I found myself studying for only an hour or so and being able to recall what I had learnt.

I have found from our sessions that the tactics I have taken on board have made me so much more confident in my studies
