Professional Assistance

Therapists for Individuals

Are you seeking professional assistance for yourself?

Many colleges and universities have professional test anxiety reduction services, which may be available even if you do not attend the school.  Call the school counseling center, and someone will answer your questions.

Otherwise, seek a recommendation for someone who treats anxiety disorders.  You want a mental health professional who understands anxiety reduction and will treat with one of the established protocols.  Psychotherapy can be highly beneficial, but you should not expect a generalist approach to treat excessive test anxiety.  A therapist who has a cognitive or behavioral orientation is more apt to present a specific anxiety reduction treatment that will be beneficial.
