from your description it sounds as if slef-esteem and then performnace anxiety tend to overwhelm your daughter at times and she may benefit from a brief period of therapy for anxiety management. A psychologist who specialises in cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) would be able to assist her in managing her anxiety at important times so that she can perform to the best of her ability.
If you contact your family doctor they should have a list of psychologists they recommend in the local area. For yourself, letting her know you believe in her and that she can and does do well will help boost her confidence.
