Examination Anxiety

Educational Performance

It is common for students to latch on to their weaknesses rather than their talents and strengths, and can easily be discouraged by negative criticism.  This can lead to examination anxiety.

Examination Anxiety

Examination Anxiety

Fear or Failure

Whether the student is at School, University or perhaps studying a new skill for their profession it can be a stressful time. They can have concerns over the fear of failure, or not being able to remember what they have learned. They fear being able to apply it on the day of their exams. Some suffer exam stress or nerves at the time of the exam but very often it is weeks or months ahead. They may feel confident in the subject they are taking the exam in but, the exam stress can cause them to let themselves down on the actual day.

Taking Control

Many struggle during the run up to exams with their focus and attention. A certain amount of anxiety is natural around exam time but for some students it is crippling, and very damaging. Students can learn to overcome their anxiety, grow in confidence, and feel comfortable in exam conditions. There is no magic, or trickery, just simple concentrated techniques which allow an individual to take control of their emotional state. They will remain focused and confident whilst being challenged. Beat the exam stress now!  Take action.

I can give the students simple coping strategies that they can use to perform at their very best, to beat all this exam stress.

This is what the student and parents think:

Exam Stress

Mrs B. J &K R

“Before I went to Mrs B’s I had a bad case of anxiety, lots of things would set me off on a panic attack out of nowhere and it was becoming hard for me to go out in public without feeling like I was going to suffer one. When I started to visit Mrs B’s I felt like I could tell her about all of my worries and what was going on in my life that we thought was causing the majority of my anxiety. Over the last few months I have really become my old self again with the help of Mrs B, I have learnt how to control myself and when to take myself out of a situation that I don’t feel comfortable in.

Mrs B has really helped me through my exam stress and I feel readier to face them now than I did when I was preparing on my own. Through the sessions together and the recordings that I use at home I have really been able to take the time to sit down and listen to them then have the inspiration to take the time to revise and prepare for my exams. It has made me feel more confident in not only the passing of my exams but in my everyday life.”  ER

Just a few lines to show our thanks and  appreciation for the help you have offered our daughter.

“We booked a course of sessions for our teenage daughter with Mrs B for help with her anxiety and confidence issues. We found her to be very helpful, understanding and reassuring, our daughter felt better from her first meeting. From the beginning, she said she felt much more in control and able to deal with the pressures of school exams and other stressful occasions in her life. As a family we can see a positive change in our daughters behaviour and well-being, she is much happier and more in control of her emotions and the pressures of modern day life. Thank You”
