Exam nerves can affect anyone, no matter how clever they are or how much they’ve prepared.
There is a great emphasis in today’s society to use exams to measure an individual’s ability (e.g. for certain jobs, to drive a car etc.) and the pressure of this can be overwhelming.
This can have a negative impact on our unconscious mind and lead to more general, longer term performance based anxiety.
Preparing for an exam and successfully completing it is not just about how knowledgeable an individual is, but also about their state of mind. Feeling calm, relaxed, focused and confident when studying and sitting the exam means an individual will be much more likely to achieve their full potential.
Accessing this state of mind is a skill and can often be learned by implementing new ways of thinking using different techniques.
- Feeling sick
- Sweaty palms
- Loss of appetite
- Bad tempered
Mindset coaching is extremely useful for the treatment of anger. Mindset coaching usually involved a variety of modalities such as positive psychology, NLP, CBT, hypnotherapy and psychotherapy.
The power of suggestion and visualisation techniques can encourage an individual to clear their racing mind and approach the exam with a cool, calm state of mind. If an individual is anxious, their mind may not be able to focus. However, controlling this anxiety often leads to increased concentration levels, allowing the knowledge to be accessed with more ease.
Mindset coaching can be used to
- Increase confidence
- Increase motivation
- Learn how to control anxiety
- Increase memory and concentration
- Encourage an individual to focus
- Overcome fear of failure
- Learn how to relax
