Does this sound like you?

  • My studying isn't as effective anymore
  • I used to do ok when I studied, but now I can't get decent results no matter what I do
  • My studying stresses me out so much that it affects me every day
  • I'm worried that I'm not smart enough to pass this. Perhaps I chose the wrong career
  • I can never seem to finish the syllabus or stick to my study plans
  • I KNOW I should do more questions, but I just never get to them
  • I'm worried that I'll never get this right. I can't see how to improve my marks

90% of my students can relate to some or most of these statements. You are NOT alone!

How can I help you?

I’ve lectured students studying towards accounting qualifications for over a decade, and I can promise you that YOU ARE SMART ENOUGH!

Over the years, I realised that no matter how many lectures students attended, no matter how many hours they were studying, no matter how committed they were, they were STILL struggling. As I mentored, counselled and worked with more students, I realised the underlying symptoms and issues that cause these challenges, and I’ve summarised these in this course.

Questions this course will answer:

  • Why aren't your study habits working anymore?
  • How does your studying at school affect your studying today?
  • How does your personality impact your studying?
  • Why are you so uncomfortable with doing questions?
  • Why are you so worried about what other people think?
  • Why are you so stressed out by your studying?
  • Why do the questions feel SO different from how they used to be?

Why start with this course?

Most students start by asking me how they can improve their focus, time management and the speed at which they go through their syllabus and topics. They want the ‘fixes’ for their study challenges.

These challenges, however, are ‘symptoms’ of an underlying issue. These videos focus on discussing these underlying issues, where they come from, and very importantly, how it impacts our studying.

Once you understand WHY you study the way you do, why you feel this way, we can talk about how to change and improve this. 

Without understanding this, you will make awesome study plans, and keep doing exactly the same stuff, because you don’t know WHY you’re making the unconscious choices EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

Student comments:


You can set up an online, one-on-one session with me to discuss how to apply these concepts to YOUR situation 

Talk to me!

Not every student is the same. The more I understand YOU, and what parts of the course you did and didn’t relate to, the more I can help advise you.

I will always refund students if they get no value from the course, but I will only do this after discussing WHY you found it useless.


A lot of the concepts will change how you SEE your studying, pretty instantaneously. This alone reduces the stress levels for most students. 

It will also provide you with advice to go change your studying immediately. It’s simple, but not easy!

It will take time to develop good study habits to match your study outcomes, but understanding your challenges helps very quickly. 

This course helps students at every level. From their first year of studies, to those writing Board exams. Understanding who we are, and why we make the decisions we do, will affect us at every level.
