Duke of York's Royal Military School

The TRE UK® team recently worked with 31 students at the Duke of York's Royal Military School to support them in coping with exam pressure.

"I have been excited and delighted to have been part of the TRE UK® pilot stress management programme for schools and working alongside Caroline and her team. We are now in the second year of offering the TRE programme to our year 11,12, and 13 students. We have seen some great individual resilience and emotional stability results. We are now starting to offer it as a therapy to other students who show symptoms of stress and anxiety. We have been so impressed that many of our staff have also learned the technique. I would thoroughly recommend this course to you and your students. Caroline is an excellent teacher who presents a complex yet simple concept in a very down to earth and engaging manner." Alison Kehaya – Vice-Principal Boarding Health and Welfare.

"Last academic year, it was evident that numerous senior students on the run-up to their summer examinations had begun to display signs of anxiety and stress. The anxiety levels were very high in some, which impacted the student's everyday routines before long. After some consideration, we invited Caroline and her team from TRE UK®

to provide a one day workshop for selected y11 students but predominantly was offered to y12 – 13. The outcome inspired me. I watched several students take back control and regain their academic drive by practising while preparing for their exams. On results day in August, these students were pleased by their overall performance and achieved grades that they did not think they would have had several months prior.

Following on from this, we have offered two stress relief technique workshops for students this year and also some short booster sessions to continue to promote positive well-being, which empowers our students for the current exam period and also when they face other challenges in life." Jen Norman – Housemistress and Head of PSHE

Student's comments from the day:

'It was a unique experience that is very difficult to put into words. It has definitely enabled me to relax more in a way I couldn't before and walk away feeling much better about myself.'

'It was pretty weird. First, I entered a state of calmness and almost fell asleep but was at peace with myself. Then I almost felt emotional as past events, and the build-up from them became clear. It was a relief to let them. I felt as if a weight had been lifted at first; I was a bit scared. However, I have found it an enjoyable experience. It was different but a good different.

'I felt tremors in place that I didn't realise were there. I felt fresh when I did it and new. I also felt like I was the only one in the room, and I found my own place. I felt emotional but good because that inner voice said to be confident and go out there and beyond. ‘This experience has given me a key to start something new in my life. After building up an emotional wall, I have finally found something to help me knock it down. The hardest problem I face is feeling empty or disconnected from myself, which has helped me release my pain.'

'After today's session, I feel much stronger mentally and emotionally, something I have never done before, and I don't regret this new experience. On the contrary, I found this experience unreal, a unique experience. Nothing like I expected it to be. However, it helped me a lot, and I can see it continuously helping me more in the future. '

'After today's experience, I felt like a massive weight had lifted off my shoulders. It was strange, but I feel like what I have learned today will help me now and in the future. It was something completely different to what I was used to. I now feel fresher and didn't feel stressed out nearly as much as before. I felt relaxed and calmoncI'd’doncI'd'dd finished. I also felt tired. I felt more physically and mentally relaxed as a whole. I also finished the day tired, but very beneficial felt a lot more relaxed by the first session, and by the second session, I was a lot more happy and motivated to do work. Also, the pain in my body left.

TESTIMONIALS

'Before doing the TRE, I found that many things got to me. Exams, work, and all manner of stressful situations would have me freaking out and having panic attacks which would often stop me sleeping, which would, in turn, make mattersworseI'd’dworseI'd'dd tried a lot of different ways of trying to control it but couldn't

I heard about the TRE UK® stress management techniques from a concerned family member, and at first, I was a little unsure and sceptical. But I had nothing to lose and went ahead with my first session. It was a little weird to start with, but it pays off if you go with it. I had positive results from week one.

Having now completed the initial stress management course, I feel totally different, and I'm a lot better than I used to be with stress, anxiety and general negativity. I haven't freaked out about anything in ages. It is the best feeling in the world to be able to get on with my life and not have to deal with all I have suffered for a long, long time – especially with my GCSEs rapidly approaching and having to make choices about the sixth form.'                                                                                                                                                                                  Matthew –Kent

‘As a 17-year-old student, the stress of work and study would often get the best of me, and I would suffer from insomnia. I started the TRE UK® course for my stress not really knowing what it was but decided that I had nothing to lose by trying it out as nothing else was working for me. I was pleasantly surprised to notice drastic changes in my sleeping pattern shortly after starting the sessions.

I was able to sleep much more, therefore making me less tired during the day and making me feel more energised overall. I was better able to cope with my workload and exam pressures. I know that some people may be sceptical or may not want to try something you don't know, especially at my age. However, I would highly recommend the TRE  UK® stress relief programme because the results could truly improve your daily life as they did mine'’.                                                                                                                                                                  Paula – Kent
