Hypnotherapy – Job Interviews

As the UK recession returns the anxiety of attaining into a new job role intensifies. Never before has there been more of a need to increase the ability to sell ourselves. In this article I outline how a combined strategy of hypnotherapy and coaching supports individuals to grab that new job by projecting themselves as a confident top quality product in their own right.

Unemployment to hit nearly 3 million

With a forecast for unemployment to hit close to 3 million in 2012, it is no wonder that concern for those seeking a new role has increased when it comes to demonstrating confidence and personal impact at the job interview. Sadly it’s not always our core transferable skills and competencies to fulfil an employer’s requirements that gets us the job, but instead our ability to project confidence and connection with the recruiter.

Hypnotherapy and coaching combined

As a hypnotherapist I have found over the years that a combined program of clinical hypnotherapy and coaching builds the confidence and projection of job candidates so that they execute behaviours that inspire the recruiter. The mind – body connection is of paramount importance here and once the mind is programmed with a solid confidence the behaviours at interview are coached to match the internal confidence. Practical examples may include:-

  • Projecting a steady and confidence tonality and pace at the interview
  • Using language that is constructed to inspire the recruiter at the interview
  • Projecting body language that illustrates confidence and impact at the interview
