Study Without Stress

A 6 workshop, face-to-face group course for students in years 10 to 12 to learn about how to better manage study stress

Study Without Stress (SWoS) is a program for students in grades 10 to 12 that equips them with knowledge and practical tips on how to approach and overcome the stress associated with heavy workload and exams in the final years of high school.

  • Understanding stress (including causes, symptoms and the role of the stress response)
  • Goal setting
  • Managing expectations and beliefs about exams
  • Creating effective timetables
  • Learning how thoughts can affect performance
  • Challenging negative or unhelpful thinking patterns
  • Understanding perfectionism

Who is it for?

Students in years 10 to 12.

How much does it cost?

The course costs $400 in total (6 sessions). Payment is generally required in full prior to taking part in the group, however, payment plans can be arranged in exceptional circumstances. Payment includes all sessions and workbooks, materials and handouts.

Individual sessions are available at our standard rate of $175.

What’s involved?

The program involves 6 x 1.5 hour sessions (9hrs total). Group sizes are capped (approx. 10-12 participants) and only students are to attend (not parents/carers as well). There are some short home tasks to complete between sessions, for students to practice their skills and facilitate their learning. Students can also complete the program on an individual basis with a Beam Health Psychologist, however the fees are higher for the 1:1 approach.


To get the most out of the program, the young person should be able to function well and actively contribute in a group setting. The program is also not intended as an intervention for students experiencing clinical anxiety or depression. Please contact us if you are unsure if your child is suitable for the program.
