Hello. Well I’m a teen and I always get stressed before exams or any test. Everyone keeps on telling me I shouldn’t be but I just can’t help it.. I’m always worried I won’t do good or I won’t finish studying in time for my exams. I have on week left and 7 subjects with an average of 11 chapters each.. Im not finished studying eith one yet.. I’m not motivated to do anything anymore because of this stress… Any advice?

Lola,

Thank you for your question. It sounds like you are experiencing some anxiety surrounding test performance. It is difficult to say what would work best for you as every person and every situation is unique. I can assure you that this is an issue that many people struggle with and it is something that can be treated. Our therapists at Insight have the training and experience to work with issues surrounding anxiety, and they would be more than glad to work with you on finding solutions that suit you best.

I encourage you to have a discussion with your parents about your concerns and consider booking an appointment with one of our therapists to address this issue further. 

We hope to hear from you soon,

Ashley Tulloch
