Excellent. Counselling training, supervision and exam nerves

This podcast was a complete eye opener. I trained for years, however, even though I studied hard, all my assignments were marked well and my face to face experience was good, when it came to exam time, I just seem to freeze. I did this with my driving test and I was very lucky to have the same examiner on my fourth test, as I did on my first disastrous test. At the end of the test he asked me how much practice I had over the year between tests. I told home “ every day, because I bought a car and put leaner plates up and my friend sat with me each day back and forth from work. He then said, well I am going to Pass you this time. I asked why, because it was miserable once again. He said, you must have exam nerves, but if you can drive to and from work over the past year, and you have had no crashes, it’s just your “nerves” today.
