If you want me to come in and work with your High School students (virtually or in-person) in preparation for their exams, I can teach them the following practical emotional self-care exercises they can do to help themselves:

  • Strategies for dealing with study/exam stress, anxiety, and overwhelm.
  • Move from a Fixed Mindset to a Growth Mindset or Benefit Mindset.
  • Set and achieve SMART goals more effectively by clearing emotional blocks and negative thoughts that are holding them back.
  • Manage academic stress and anxiety for test/exam performance anxiety.
  • Deal with their concentration and motivation problems to doing their work. 
  • Overcome procrastination when faced with challenges like exams or externally-assessed essays so they can organize themselves and manage their time better.  

By learning how to reduce their excess study stress and/or anxiety levels in ways that work for them, students can shift out of their avoidance / ‘flight’ / fear response to their academics. As a result, procrastination behaviors goes down, and academic confidence, problem-solving skills, and time management skills go up; students can then move into the front part of their brain (the ‘thinking brain’) and out of their ’emotional brain’ (amygdala). From this place, they can make wiser time management decisions and study more productively. 

For schools that want me to come in and work with your school staff, students, or parents in person or online, I offer bespoke stress management and SEL training in a variety of formatsFormats include in-person or virtual: 

  • Grounding and stress management strategies workshops for staff or student wellbeing.
  • Academic coaching using EFT Tapping (1:1 or small groups) for student stress management, exam anxiety / exam prep, and overcoming procrastination.
  • Small group workshops for staff or students on SEL and wellbeing.
  • EFT Tapping circles for teacher / parent / student wellbeing.
  • Story-telling based sessions / information-based presentations.
  • Mixed methods pre-recorded video training followed by a live virtual Q&A session with me. 
  • Mindset coaching 1-to-1 or group training sessions for staff or students.

"Eleni participated as a keynote speaker in the IB Students Conference, Breaking Horizons, held by Prepas UPAEP. In her talk, she addressed more than 2,000 participants who learned how to manage their emotions and focus their strengths on the challenges involved in the IB programmes. She spoke from her own experience as an IB graduate and provided meaningful advice from her expertise in stress management and academic achievement. Her talk will definitely impact the students’ development."
