Many students will suffer moments of stress and often feel overwhelmed when having to sit an exam.


And a little bit of pressure is no bad thing. It drives us on.


But not when it becomes all-consuming.


The trouble is that in today’s world there’s increasing pressure ‘to do well’.


Exam passes are increasingly seen as a measure of someone’s ability. The pressure can be overwhelming.


And when nerves become out of control, they can lead to anxiety attacks and stress - if the student doesn’t know how to cope.


Working together we can manage your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. This means you don’t create a more vicious cycle of more intense emotions that over time have a negative impact on your unconscious mind. We don’t want to create a more general, longer-term performance-based anxiety.


We will prepare you for your exam by preparing your state of mind to make you feel calm, relaxed, focused and confident when studying – in fact using study as the practice for your exam.


It’s about encouraging you to focus, believe in yourself, increase motivation and boost concentration.


We can also use these techniques to help you with:

  • Driving tests
  • Interview preparation and interviews
  • Public speaking
  • Viva exams
