“For the first time I was in control and of course I passed the test!”

“Before seeing Denise I had failed the Teacher Training Numeracy Skills Test. I had revised intensely and was prepared but on the day I was so nervous it made me feel sick and my body was shaking so much I couldn’t hold the computer mouse still and my brain shut down. I saw Denise the day before my second attempt. She listened and we talked for a long time about my big issue with exam nerves, lack of confidence and I felt that there wasn’t any stone unturned. By the end of the session I felt more relaxed but I wasn’t yet sure how I would react in the exam room. Then the big moment arrived! Despite being nervous, it wasn’t as intense as any previous experience I had in exam conditions. I applied the calming down technique Denise had taught me which worked wonderfully and was able to concentrate and give 100% focus on each question; cool as a cucumber. For the first time I was in control and of course I passed the test! Denise is a pearl. Her help has been invaluable and I would definitely recommend her. Thank you Denise!”
