Exam Stress

Exams are often a cause of worry and stress. The expectations may be high and the results may determine your future. No wonder there is the potential for exams to be a source of anxiety for many. Yet, the experience doesn’t have to be stressful…

It is a well-known neuroscience fact that when the brain is relaxed, it is more resourceful and more active than when it is in a state of high alertness.

We can achieve a highly focused and yet also relaxed state of the brain, allowing for good memory recall and feelings of clarity and control. Exam stress may be dealt with as any other types of anxiety and the treatment is centred around relaxation techniques and positive visualisations. There are many coping tools within your mental toolbox that I can help you apply in potentially tense situations.

However, my relaxation therapy techniques are more than just a toolkit and coping mechanism. When the brain is taught to relax itself, it will do this automatically without having to be prompted by conscious determination. The aim is to achieve an automatic relaxed state, even in times of duress.

“Believe in your infinite potential. Your only limitations are those you set upon yourself.”
