College Audition Prep
The college audition process can be hard, but it doesn't have to be. Combine customized 1:1 hypnosis with individualized audition coaching to prepare for and navigate your college auditions with certainty, ease, and resilience.
"To experience change,
you have to change experience"
Hypnosis is a powerful tool and mental state that opens the subconscious mind to change using imagery and suggestion. It is used to reduce stress, enhance creativity and performance, and build inner resources and imaginative skills.
As a performer, you are already inclined toward imagination. This means that you can apply your unique creativity in hypnosis to support your mental and physical wellbeing and set yourself up for successful, fulfilling college auditions (and beyond).
1:1 Hypnosis for Auditions
In our virtual session, you'll be taken through a customized, guided experience of mental imagery to help you build confidence and "mentally rehearse" your college auditions. This will help you ease your stress, grow your creativity, and teach your brain how to navigate the ups and downs of the college audition process (and even enjoy it!).
Alongside our hypnosis work, you'll also have a chance to workshop your audition material (songs and monologues). You'll gain in-the-moment feedback and coaching to explore your pieces in a creative, encouraging, and safe setting.
You'll leave with an action plan and a guided self-hypnosis practice to help you manage stress and build confidence as you continue to prepare for your auditions.
Before booking your first session, you'll get a free consultation to answer all of your questions and make sure hypnosis is a good fit! If you are under 18 years old, permission from a parent or guardian is required.
Each virtual session takes about 90 minutes. In this time, we'll incorporate 1:1 hypnosis and mental practices alongside audition and acting coaching to help you feel truly confident and prepared for college audition season. You'll leave with a rehearsal plan and a guided self-hypnosis practice to support your preparation.
