Conquering Exam Stress: A Psychotherapist’s Mission to Empower Students

As a psychotherapist with over 26 years of experience as a school counsellor, I have witnessed firsthand the debilitating effects of teenage exam stress on countless students. The pressure to perform well in exams, coupled with the mounting expectations from parents, teachers and peers, can take a severe toll on students’ mental and emotional well-being. 

This widespread issue compelled me to take action and share my knowledge and expertise in helping students with managing exam stress and achieve their academic potential. 

As a result, I have written a book titled “Conquering Exam Stress,” which provides practical solutions, valuable insights and effective tips to help students navigate the challenges of exam season. Find out more about my books, podcasts & publications here.
