Exam Stress Workshops - The Confidence Clinic Ltd.

Student Coaching

The Confidence Clinic has been coaching teenagers who are suffering with exam stress and lack of motivation to study for over 7 years. We have been running Exam Stress & Study Motivation Workshops in numerous Secondary Schools since 2015. In 2020, The Confidence Clinic was unable to run these workshops, due to Covid-19 restrictions. We are currently offering an on-line Teen Talk Workshop, which will address many of the issues that are coming up again & again in personal coaching sessions.  This workshop is suitable for all secondary school students, including Junior Cert & Leaving Cert Students . For more information, see our Upcoming Events page! 

What we will cover:

Sources of stress

Coping with panic or anxiety

Inner talk – what are you telling yourself

Changing your reaction to stress triggers

Visualizing positive outcomes

Finding your inner motivation

Trusting your memory

Managing time & study plans

Relaxing Guided Meditation to finish the session


Our workshop will include:

A powerpoint presentation, practical exercises, discussion, a short Q&A session and ends with a relaxing guided meditation. Our powerpoint presentation is available to participants after the event. 

Standard Ticket = €90

Premium Ticket including 2 coaching sessions = €180 ( €30 Discount ) 

Premium Tickets

A premium ticket includes access to the Teen Talk workshop, plus 2 x one-to-one coaching sessions to allow a detailed and in-depth discussion about what is holding the person back. Many times this is related to our own inner talk and self-sabotaging behaviour. A one-to-one coaching session lasts 1 hour and will be by appointment. All coaching sessions will be on-line until restrictions are lifted.
