Psychologist Beverley A'Court talks about exam stress and dealing with failure
Aug 11, 2020 Episode 20
Shelly Cornick and Nick Lone

One thing I have learned while running My IELTS Classroom is that many students need as much emotional support from me as academic guidance. However, I sometimes feel that I do not have the skills needed to help my students who are dealing with failure and IELTS stress management.

That is why today, I am so glad to be able to share this interview with the psychologist and art therapist  Beverley A'court who takes us through every aspect of stress and failure to give you (and me) some simple techniques that we can use to cope with these difficult emotions.

Episode notes

In this episode Beverley will talk us through the feeling of stress, fear, and shame before offering some simple activities that you can do to combat these negative emotions. PLEASE have a piece of paper and pen handy so that you can take part.

In this episode, we will discuss

  1. how natural stress is different to the stress that we feel in modern life
  2. how internal conversations about the future and the past can create a cycle of stress, particularly in exams.
  3. what physically happens to you when you are stressed (and how this can affect you in the exam room)
  4. the three levels of attack that you can use to combat stress
  5. the benefits of having plants and flowers in your study environment. Plus, how holding a smooth stone can be soothing while you tackle a difficult exercise
  6. the difference between guilt and shame
  7. how to STOP negative self-talk
  8. how to deal with the pressure of family expectation
