Chris Battle has extensive experience helping students prepare for high-stakes exams using NLP hypnotherapy. A qualified and experienced professional, he currently has a private educational therapy practice at Harley Street, London.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
My experience as an educational therapist and teacher will help your child be confident in exams and improve their memory.

Does your child start to panic at the first mention of exams? Then you are not alone. Exam nerves and stress happen to most of us. The right amount of stress can motivate us and keep us focused. Too much stress and anxiety and we lose focus on the important things, and our imagination and negative automatic thoughts take over. We start to panic and catastrophise.

NLP hypnotherapy can teach invaluable techniques to improve your memory, revision skills and most importantly to help your child feel confident within themselves that they can recall the information needed at the right time. Clients report that it’s the worry of their mind going blank at that vital moment that causes their anxiety. Exam success depends as much on your state of mind, as it does on your academic ability.

Hypnotherapy can help your child walk into that examination room calm, confident and focused every time. With the use of a gentle but deep relaxation, the subconscious mind will accept positive suggestions that will help your child strengthen their memory, increase confidence and change the way they think and behave for the better. A relaxed mind is a confident mind that will remember and recall information when needed, leading to exam success.

Would you like your child to be that calm, confident, successful person?

Experience of using NLP hypnotherapy techniques with hundreds of students​
What kind of experience do you have?
While working as a teacher and tutor, I saw the need to learn new skills to help students achieve their potential. I bean my study of NLP hypnotherapy in 2007, and soon integrated the techniques learned into tutorial sessions with students.

Again and again, I had clients who experienced the same problem: the student learned the material to a high standard, on practice papers they could consistently achieve 'A' grades, and then in the real exams their nerves were so bad they would achieve up to two grades less. For many GCSE and A level students, this had huge consequences on their futures; university course choices were more limited and career prospects too were affected. As a teacher, I started out focusing on raising the knowledge, understanding and exam technique of the student. Eventually, I have come to realise that a huge amount of underachievement occurs because of stress and anxiety - this is the problem that ExamSuccessHypno is designed to help.

I have developed and refined a number of techniques of educational therapy after studying Neuro-Linguistic Programming to Master Practitioner level with Dr Richard Bandler, joint founder of NLP and teacher to Paul McKenna.
