Managing Exam Stress - Teens.
Some children experience exam anxiety in the build up to the exam period and become increasingly nervous and find it difficult to recall what they have learned. Studies show that emotional stress can disrupt the connection between nervous system activity and the brain, limiting important cognitive processes essential for clear thinking, memory, problem solving and reasoning, and attention.
If your child has exam anxiety, there are many different ways to alleviate the stress. Understanding the causes and how the body responds, learning and practising different strategies can really help.
Nurture My Potential runs 1:1 coaching sessions and small group workshops for children who need some support in this area.
Children examine thought patterns, learn how their brain reacts to stress and explore strategies that work for them creating an individual, 'Calm Me' plan.
