Exam Stress

Exam stress: 

How many sessions would I need:

Depending upon the nature of the stress I would recommend between 1-2 sessions. If there are any further anxieties that make themselves present I would recommend up to a maximum of six sessions.

Group sessions are workshop based programmes and are two hours

It can be daunting at any stage of life to deal with an examination from GCSE's to driving tests.

Some symptoms of exam stress:

  • Difficulty getting to sleep or difficulty waking up in the morning
  • Constant tiredness
  • Forgetfulness
  • Feeling pressured to succeed 
  • Unexplained aches and pains
  • Poor appetite and diet
  • Loss of interest in activities or spending time with friends
  • Increased anxiety and irritability
  • Increased heart rate,
  • Migraines/headaches
  • Blurred vision
  • Dizziness

Exam nerves are an anxiety based condition and therefore can be managed by both hypnotherapy and counselling.

How therapy can help:

Hypnotherapy can help reduce the feelings associated with nerves and help you to focus and remain calm. It can also provide a focus and assist with memory.

Counselling can on a one to one basis offer support to talk about any of your exam issues and help devise strategies to help you revise and perform to the best of your ability. 

Group sessions can offer support by sharing experiences with fellow peers and offer a constructive programme to advise you on how to manage both stress and anxiety so you can do your best.
