I've had problems with my grades for the last two years. It was bad because I was barely passing my classes. I had a negative outlook on my ability with grades and school. It made me feel insecure and I didn't have a lot of confidence in myself. It was difficult for me to study, do homework, and learn anything when I was at school. I was worried about my future and afraid that I wasn't going to be successful in life. I felt like I couldn't control the things that I was doing. I would be sitting there and listening, but not learning anything. I wasn't paying attention and I couldn't make myself focus.
I tried talking to my teachers and asking how they could help me take notes better. I asked counselors at school for advice, but it didn't help me at all and it usually made it harder for me because I didn't believe in myself.
My mom looked up A New Day Hypnosis on the internet and scheduled my first appointment. When she first told me about it, it was a little weird, but then I got used to the idea. I figured that it was a new thing to try, why not try it? After the first session, I was taking more notes and doing my homework. I noticed that I was also paying more attention in class.
Now it's easier to study, do class work, take notes, and get my homework done. I feel more confident and believe in myself that I can do this stuff. I've improved a lot and I'm able to focus on things easier now and I feel more calm and relaxed about school.
The most important thing that I've gotten from this experience is good grades. Before I came to see Laura I was either failing or barely passing my classes. I had a lot of Cs and one failing grade and last grade report was all As and Bs. I would recommend A New Day Hypnosis because it's helpful and gave me confidence in myself and believing that I can do it. Now I have the information I needed so that I so that I can do my best in school. Laura gave me the support to get up and go and do the things that I needed to do.
