    I start my placement at the beginning of August and my confidence has gone down the last couple of months and my anxiety levels are through the roof where the thought of placement terrifies me. I am usually a confident person but I feel as though I won't be professional enough or will say something silly and not complete my placement and will have got in all of this debt for nothing. I think the pressure of everything is getting to me, has anyone got any advice where they've been really nervous but placement went really well or any coping techniques that others have used, any advice is welcome.
