Dr Neil Rutterford CPsychol AFBPsS MSc PhD
Director of Learning Assessment and Neurocare Center says:
“For many students, the exam period means facing their fears of failure and the prospect of not being able to retain weeks’ worth of revision. It isn't just the anxiety or nerves at the time of the exam, but very often worry for weeks and months ahead which can adversely affect their cognitive function and exam performance on the day.
The Seraphina Mind Studio offers invaluable learning strategies and techniques that can to help students control the effects of stress as well as promote a healthy attitude and motivation towards learning and taking exams.”
Students who have attended this program, on average, exceeded predicted results by one or two grades.
Stress plays a big part in learning, study, performance and self-belief. Stress hormones frequently distort thinking, feelings, behaviour and significantly disable cognitive (thinking) power. This can cause a number of detrimental effects. For example, you may lose focus, making it difficult to study, memorise information or stay on task. You may experience low energy and mood; reduced self-belief and confidence. Even well-prepared students can be stressed on exam days, leaving an exam disappointed that their hard work and revision faded from memory when they needed it. You can give yourself a big advantage by attending a one-to-one session or workshop.
You can expect rapid improvements in the quality of your learning, study and exam day performance.

"As part of our Thrive Week, we were pleased to host a Mind Training workshop led by Penny Johnson from the Seraphina Mind Studio, for 80 of our 6th form girls. The girls learned some invaluable information and cutting edge techniques, to elicit positive states of mind and manage stress, as well as how to get into the optimal learning state. I particularly enjoyed the mind relaxation techniques at the end, which left me feeling calm and relaxed for the day ahead. This is very much aligned to our ethos here at Woldenham School, so I/we whole- heartedly support the benefits of Mind Training with Seraphina Mind Studio for positive mental health and learning. “

Turning negative minds into successful minds.
Here at the Seraphina Mind Studio we have seen significant increases in the numbers of students and teachers referred for a broad range of stress and anxiety related problems. From poor concentration, focus, negative self-image, IBS, depression, OCD, eating disorders, stammering to self-harm and panic, the list is growing.
Stress and anxiety hormones are clinically proven to disable cognitive functioning, distorting feeling and emotions. Many of these problems could easily be minimised and even avoided with the correct mind training and knowledge.
Our Successful Minds Program has proved to be an invaluable tool set; many parents and teachers have been amazed at the positive changes they have experienced in themselves, their students and children. During exams some of the most negative, low-grade students became high achievers, attaining grades above their predicted expectations. They sailed through their exams calmly and confidently.
