Give Yourself An Edge – Exam and Career Success



The Give Yourself An Edge programme will cover;
Motivation, focus, clarity, reduce anxiety, learn effective and fun revision and learning techniques, increase confidence and performance, emotional intelligence.


One of the most rewarding parts of my work is when I can help young people to see a bit further than their noses, looking beyond the immediate draw of having fun,  hanging out with friends and procrastinating over their revision.

Many parents contact me regarding one to ones with their children who are stressed, anxious or overwhelmed by their impending exams and I enjoy taking each and every one up to a new level, a new way of thinking and focusing.

Parents often feel helpless  because there ‘s a fine line between helping, empowering and what might be considered interfering by the young person in the year of revision, studying and taking the exams.

Each session is tailored to meet the person’s need, depending on what the real barriers are.  Many of the reasons are just symptoms of something else and it’s important to get to the bottom of that first. A holistic approach is essential.

I then help them to set goals in a way that enables them to see the bigger picture ie this is so much more than just an exam. Although they know it’s their future at stake, they are very much influenced by peers and after a session with me, they have the tools to combat the pressures surrounding this.

I take them through goal setting, ensuring that their ‘Why’ is big and strong and then onto visualising success. Using NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and other coaching models, I can show them how to create a pathway to career success whether it’s exams or clarity about their chosen career and the path to reach their dream vocation.

I help them to use all their senses to learn, remember and recall the information. I show them unique revision techniques and motivate them to start immediately with a plan of action.

I also coach young people who have already embarked on their career but lack confidence and assertiveness to work towards promotion,  those who wish to be bold or have clarity in order to embark on a different path, to a vocation that they feel more passionate about. Professions have been varied from doctors, teachers and solicitors to service industries and financial services.  We all need a little help sometimes!


If you’re interested in helping your child through this incredibly important but challenging time, to pass their exams, or you are a young adult that wants to have career success, please contact me either here or call on 01473 682760

I just wanted to message you and say a huge THANK YOU!
I had an exam last week and it went really well. Completely different to previous ones. I didn’t throw up, there was no crying, I could manage to get words out, I had perfectly steady hands and the teachers were happy with how I went. We get our results in a few weeks, so I will find out then how different it actually was. I am so surprised at what a difference it made.
I still have 5 more exams to go this term, they are close together at the end of term – so will be interesting to see how they work out, but I am so much more confident. Other people were commenting on how I was different too.
You have made a world of difference, thank you so much.
Your very happy student,

Was referred to Nadia through a friend, she is very easy to work with and helped me considerably in tackling the mental side of my main sport, Cricket. Nadia has helped me overcome my fears and the pressures of playing at the higher levels of sport. My mind set has changed considerably over just a few months and I’ve never looked back! Nadia also helped me to structure my school work to reduce the stress that I was putting on myself to a great extent. I feel in control. Thank you Nadia.
