Dr. E Overcomes Crippling Anxiety to Take Medical Boards
Dr. E had achieved her lifelong dream of becoming a doctor. She had worked tirelessly to get accepted into medical school, excel in her studies, and complete her residency. But there was one final obstacle in her way: overcoming anxiety so she could sit for her medical boards.
Dr. E had been struggling with crippling anxiety for many years. She had tried everything to manage it, but nothing seemed to work. Every time she scheduled the medical boards, she would become overwhelmed with anxiety and end up rescheduling. She would procrastinate about studying. And spent tons of money on rescheduling fees!
Help for Anxiety
One day, Dr. E saw a video of me online and was immediately drawn to the message of hope and possibility. She decided to hire me as her coach to help her overcome anxiety.
Over the next four months, Dr. E worked with me to develop a personalized plan for managing her anxiety. Her plan included hypnosis for anxiety as well as self-hypnosis. She learned how to identify and challenge her negative thoughts, and she developed effective coping mechanisms for dealing with anxiety-provoking situations.
When it was time to take the medical boards again, Dr. E was feeling more confident than ever before. She knew that she had the tools and skills she needed to succeed.
Exam Anxiety Resolved
Dr. E registered for the exam. Was excited to finally be sitting for the exam. Then…it was canceled because of covid!!!!!! Yep, covid. But it didn’t matter. She was determined to take the exam .
Dr. E arrived at the testing center early on the day of the exam. She took a few deep breaths and reminded herself of all the hard work she had done. She entered the testing room and began the exam. For the first time in 6 years, she sat for the medical boards.👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾
Dr. E reported feeling calm and focused throughout the exam. She was able to answer the questions thoughtfully and accurately. When she finished the exam, she felt a sense of relief and accomplishment.

Additional Benefits of Overcoming Anxiety
But the benefits of Dr. E’s coaching went beyond sitting for the medical boards. Dr. E also reported that because of anxiety coaching, her relationship with her fiancé and family had improved. She was less anxious and more present in her relationships. She was also spending more time having fun and enjoying life. Both her mom and fiance sent me messages, thanking me for the coaching and the changes they saw in Dr. E.
