    As a certified hypnosis practitioner, I've helped aspiring SLPs pass the SLP Praxis® exam using visualization strategies. Research hypnosis helps test takers reduce their test and general anxieties (Pachaiappan, et al., 2023).

    If you're studying for the SLP Praxis® exam, I highly recommend building a habit of meditation.

    I started meditating in graduate school.

    I didn’t exactly know what I was doing, but I trusted the guided meditations on the Insight Timer app to ground me as I navigated the grad school storm.

    Without my meditation habit, I wouldn’t have cultivated the intuition that’s helped me:
    💖 Create a Praxis study plan aligned with my schedule
    💖 Overcome limiting beliefs keeping me in self-doubt and scarcity
    💖 Use my intuitive guidance to answer Praxis test questions correctly (leading to a 172 score)
    💖 Trust myself enough to take BIG LEAPS OF FAITH to become the SLP my inner child marvels at every day.

    Meditation has been one of my favorite tools for visualizing my success until I am living in that reality.

    Just 3 minutes a day of mindful breathing can make a difference!

    P.S. I love helping aspiring SLPs pass the Praxis so they can create their dream careers in speech pathology.

    If you want to pass the SLP Praxis® the first time, DM me the word “COACHING”

    💖 And let’s chat to see how I can coach you through your limiting beliefs, help you create a personalised study plan, and fast track your way to SLP Praxis® success and your dream career in speech pathology!

    Lookout for weekly tips on how you can pass the SLP Praxis® exam by up levelling your mindset, using a study strategy and maintaining your “Why”.

    I'm curious about the impact of EFT tapping and hypnosis on test performance! I am a hypnosis and EFT practitioner and used hypnosis techniques to help my clients connect to their WHY. I've noticed their intuition strengthened and confidence increased after taking the practice Praxis tests.
