Problems with exams

A University student had failed his first year exams. An issue he wanted to resolve was anxiety prior to the exam and an inability to recall information whilst sitting the exam.

The consultations involved evaluation of his representational systems and identification of the key learning method. This then led to an adjustment in the way he revised to maximise retention of information. A previous 'bad experience, was managed using a fast phobia technique. A 'concentration zone dome' was created in the exam room, together with mental rehearsal (including the daily use of an MP3 recording)and methods to better access information stored in the unconscious mind.

The result was a better emotional balance in the exam room, easier recall of information, more effective revision ..... and passing the retake.
