Is your child suffering from anxiety?
It isn’t easy to be the parent of an anxious child.
As parents we find ourselves caught up in a vicious cycle as we attempt to manage the situation.

On the other we feel overwhelming frustration and despair realising that nothing we do makes a difference and the situation seems to be getting worse and worse…

FAQ’s about the Cool Kids Program?
How long does the program usually last?
The Program is usually implemented in over 10 sessions.
How quickly can I expect to see results?
It takes time and work to learn to manage anxiety and not all children make progress at the same rate. Expect to make progress in a zig-zag fashion rather than a straight line but there will be noticeable changes before the program ends.
Why do I need to be present in session, it’s not the way we’ve worked with other therapists?
Research has shown that for children, involvement of parents in the treatment of anxiety disorders leads to much better outcomes. Working together with me to help support your child will boost their confidence, help them feel safe and positive as they progress through the program.
I’m worried I’ll be blamed for my child’s behaviour; it’s putting me off getting help. Will I feel
The program is not intended to judge or lay blame at any party. My job is only to work with you and your child to understand what has been happening; empower you both by giving you tools to help your child manage their anxiety.
