GCSE Exam Stress?   

GCSE exam stress is common … You are not alone.

GCSE exam stress is common and the ChildLine National Exam Stress Survey revealed that 96% of the 1300 who completed the survey felt anxious about GCSE exams and revision, with 59% feeling pressure to do well and 64% feeling they needed more support in dealing with exams.

The ChildLine website states:

Worryingly in the survey results, some of you said you coped with anxiety by smoking, taking drugs and self-harming. You might feel that this is the only way you can cope with these negative emotions but it doesn’t have to be.

The alarming statistics reveal that almost half of pupils say they have skipped meals, two thirds of those surveyed said they have trouble sleeping and 14% said they drank alcohol as a way of dealing with GCSE exam stress & anxiety.

Time to intervene and help them with GCSE exam stress, performance anxiety, concentration, confidence & ‘overwhelm’ … 

Symptoms of GCSE exam stress can include a triggering of any weak spots the child has (migraines, eating disorders, for example). Common symptoms include:

  • problems with going to sleep
  • or getting up in the morning.
  • Strongly beating heart,
  • sweating.
  • Chest pains,
  • back pains,
  • nausea,
  • trembling,
  • shortness of breath.
  • Stomach upset,
  • constipation
  • or diarrhoea.

Homeopathic Remedies For GCSE Exam Stress / Performance Anxiety.

The following remedies are often used for GCSE exam stress and anxiety related to performance.  The symptoms are a guide.  You may see all of the symptoms or some of them. Consult a homeopath for a thorough treatment or try the most similar remedy you can see below.  Try one remedy at a time.
Use the remedy in strength levels 30c or 200c (you can buy it here).    Make up a medical solution (‘How To’ page is here) and dose every 20 minutes with 30c or hourly with 200c.  As soon as you feel better, stop taking the remedy and wait.

  • Gelsemium:  Timid.  Afraid and performs poorly.  Dull, dizzy and drowsy.  Weak and trembly.  Frequent urination and diarrhoea.
  • Lycopodium: Performance anxiety but they tend to do well when it comes to it.  Dictatorial at home and well behaved with ‘superiors’/at school.  Abdominal bloating.  Inflated ego covering insecurity.
  • Aconite: anxiety with proper ‘terror’ attacks (palpitations, numbness and tingling, trembling, red face, sweating, faint, breathing difficulty).  Well between attacks.  Fearful of many things.
  • Silica – anxiety from indecision and overwhelm. Heavy sweat (+ smelly feet).  Fear to undertake new tasks.  Sensitive to cold drafts. Constipation.
  • Argentum Nitricum – anticipatory anxiety from extreme performance pressure causing diarrhoea.  Desire for sweets (which cause diarrhoea) and salty food.  Impulsive and reckless.
  • Nux Vomica – anxiety related to issues of time, fear of being criticized for wasting time, feeling like they don’t have enough time.  Hard task master with family. Digestive disorders, burning indigestion.
  • Picric Acid – Exhaustion (mental) that is like a wall that comes down prior to exams

I’m currently undertaking a study with children who suffer with anxiety. See here to join.

Depression, Anxiety & OCD: 4 Rapid fixes


Depression & Anxiety Treatments that can be useful alongside homeopathic treatment: 

2) “The Work” by Byron Katie

is a rapid & simple form of ‘cognitive-behaviour’ type therapy. You can access it free hereThere are lots of videos showing people overcoming feeling and thoughts that cause depression & anxiety.  

and/or:

3)  “The Feeling Good Book

depression anxiety ocd 4 rapid fixes

a cognitive-behaviour therapy course by David Burns.  

Cognitive behaviour therapy can help with:

  • perfectionism,
  • procrastination,
  • self-hatred, 
  • other self-defeating behaviours, which cause depression & anxiety.

Afterwards it’s really difficult to go back to where you were.  You can no-longer quite take the negative thoughts seriously because you can see through them.  It short circuits what I call “Shame spirals” that lead to depression & anxiety; those self-beating sessions that deteriorate into some of the symptoms of depression & anxiety: misery, self harm & angry outbursts.

4)  Meditation.  

The benefits for depression & anxiety of taking at least short moments to be quiet and peaceful are obvious. Tiny moments, practiced until they can join up into longer moments.  Even when things feel pretty terrible, it seems to be spookily peaceful in there.
There is a worldwide organization/community called Balanced View that teaches you to take ‘short moments’ to discover that you can ‘rest’ with the negative thoughts.  For those who want community for healing … this may be for you. 


Homeopathy [and the above books] helped me beat depression & anxiety.  It’s one of the main reasons I became a homeopath and focus on depression & anxiety in my practice.

Homeopathy is a 200 year old system of holistic medicine that treats you as a whole person; your physical, emotional and mental elements.  It is used by 6 million people in the UK, for many types of health problem, not just depression & anxiety.

It’s not necessary to take suppressive drugs with sometimes awful, long term side effects, like loss of emotion, drowsiness, etc, which themselves impact on your life.

Don’t wait.  There’s nothing to lose in trying homeopathy for depression & anxiety.
