Learning, Performance & Mindset

helping students and adults to fulfil their potential


We don’t get a manual to explain how our brains work


Do you want to understand how you learn best? Do you want your grades to reflect your hard efforts? Are you interested in using the science of learning to ensure your precious time is used effectively? I certainly am and I know how frustrating learning can feel at times.  

As a senior academic for over 15 years, I have seen learners crumble with performance anxiety for exams, interviews, presentations and assessments.

Success is not just about academic knowledge and remembering information but in understanding your mindset so that you are the best version of you. In 2020, I published a book, Study Smarter. It’s the book that I wish I had when I was a student. 





Although learning is such a natural experience in our lives, we don’t get a manual for how best to learn. There are a handful of common mistakes and suboptimal strategies that when identified and changed, completely transform how we learn. 


Despite all the preparation, what happens in those situations when we have to step up and perform at our best? An exam, an interview, a presentation. Autonomic arousal can help us be ready but too much and we struggle. Nerves, lack of confidence, anxiety and stress hold us back.


Motivation, confidence and positivity are great attributes and yet we can spend more time stressed out, we procrastinate more and focus on all the things that might go wrong. It’s not a fun place to be in and yet it can be so different.
