Jade’s Story

Studying and Exam Anxiety.  Rather than write Jade’s case study, I thought you would like to read her story in her own words:

“When I was younger I had difficulty in studying. I could never get myself to study for long periods of time or focus on work of importance. I would find anything else to do rather than study and when I did finally sit down to do it I would fall asleep or day-dream and not concentrate on completing the task at hand. Additionally I used to get very nervous at exam time. It was so bad that I would become nauseous. On one occasion I fainted and banged my head as I went down! The result of this was that I could not write the exam that day.

Linda helped me concentrate and focus on my studies. After only one session with her I could already feel a change as if she had motivated me to want to study and learn. I practiced relaxation and visualization techniques. Linda recorded a cd for me which I had to listen to at home twice a day for 30 days. I did this religiously and I was thrilled to find that I could approach exams in a calm, confident and relaxed manner.

I am currently a third year student at University and would not be achieving the results I am at the moment if the root of my studying problem and my hatred for studying had not been fixed.”
