A report in the Daily Telegraph last month tells how Holmer Lake Primary School in Telford, Shropshire called in a hypnotherapist to help Year 6 pupils deal with the pressures of SATs. The children were taught breathing and other techniques and the head teacher said that it has helped pupils to achieve record SATs results as well as enabling the children to feel happier, calmer and much more self-confident too. If only schools in Sheffield and elsewhere were so enlightened! I still fervently hope and dream that one day all children are taught from an early age how to use their mind well, boost their ability to learn and be happy and prevent problems such as anxiety, low self esteem and lack of self confidence from occurring in the first place.
