The sun always seems to shine at exam time for students, and while sunshine does help a little in regards to a reduction of anxiety, the stress of exams can lead to an increase of anxiety sufferers. This time of year I tend to see an increase in young people who are facing into exams. The really great news is that it usually only takes one session to re-calibrate those stress levels. It is very important that we lower those stress levels for exams, because when we are in high stress mode, our fight or flight mechanism fires up, and one of the effects of this, is a shut down of our memory function. So the students ability to re-call information is adversely affected. There are also specific techniques that we teach students that enhance their re-call ability, and these again are taught during the stress reduction session. So please if you know of anyone who may be struggling at this time, please contact me and I will be happy to look after them or to recommend a qualified therapist in your area.
We use these techniques at our college, for example last week our students were guided through a meditation to enhance their re-call directly before they completed their international practical exam. Well done to all of you, you did the Holistic Centre of Excellence, our phenomenal tutors and yourselves proud yet again. In our fifth year of college inspection, it is great to hear that we are still the outstanding private training college in Ireland. Best of luck in your final theory papers next week. We are looking forward to all HCE members celebrating with a very special end of year event on Thur 21st at 5pm.
