Depression and anxiety can feel overwhelming even on the best of days. I believe in helping clients understand these disorders and help them to reduce and manage symptoms.

I have also failed a Math test,when I was in school I was so unhappy then but I got through it by believing in myself that I can still get a good grade in math all I need do is to put more effort,be hardworking , concentrate more on areas in math I don't really understand and also have it at the back of your mind that no one can define who you are you can only define who you want to be so even if everyone thinks you are dumb prove them wrong by performing well in your next test.Remember the sky is your starting point. I believe in you.

Although you may not be able to change your grade now, I promise you that we have all been in your shoes. Just a few weeks ago I got an F on a chemistry test when everyone else in the class did fairly well! I thought the same thing as you, and although it may seem like everyone hates you and thinks you're dumb, the reality of it is that they may not know or they've been there in your shoes before. If you practice, study, and continue to improve and show your skills to the world, you can get your grades up. c: Remember to take self-care breaks and time where you can de-stress from your studying though! Math is a hard subject and it's okay not to always understand it. Your grades do not define your worth as a person - you are so much more than a number or letter on a piece of paper. Stay strong.
