Monica was working in Spain in industry. She called me a week before her Business Studies module with the Open University, which she needed to pass to get a promotion in her work. She wanted a few sessions on the telephone because she was feeling ‘scared stiff’ of sitting her exams. She didn’t think she’d even make it into the exam hall. We went through her papers piece-meal, discussing her exam technique and essay planning in detail, until she was confident of using a good method for tackling her paper.
We also discussed her feelings that she could never be as competent as her very academic sister. We dispelled some of her sense of inadequacy through EFT.
She sat the exams and passed.
