Lost in space
You haven't started therapy or coaching, you are confused and overwhelmed by all the conflicting advice. You see your child or teen struggling but don't know what to do for the best. What should you say or do to support your child when they're struggling? You are most likely to be suffering yourself: guilt for not having the answers mixed with frustration at your child's overactive behaviour and fears. You worry about the future and the stress the anxiety is causing to the whole family. It is having a negative impact on daily life. Your child's worries are intense, frequent and it has been going on for more than one month. You need a plan, some quick tips and action steps to get your started!Get started

Is your child 'Cruising the Galaxy' in therapy?
Cruising the galaxy
Your child is immersed and engaged in their therapy. Not only has your child they learnt about their own anxiety; they are also able to recognise anxiety themes in other people. You see your child with a great emotional vocabulary, who can articulate the difference between anxiety triggers and fear-based behaviour. You recognise 'Anxiety' as the 'Villain' in this journey, their therapist as 'The Guide' and your child (and yourself) as 'The Hero'. You are grateful to have a plan and relieved to know exactly what steps to take when new anxiety themes pop up. You feel supported and are gaining independence. You are educated about how anxiety can be managed and are seeing a future where your child or teen is able to self-regulate and cope with day-to-today life and are working towards your therapy exit plan.I WANT TO KNOW MORE!
Congratulations on 'Flying on Solo'
Flying solo on autopilot
Your child has reached their therapy goals and has an Exit Plan to refer back to. You have lots of resources to maintain great mental health. Your child has proven step-by-step strategies to deal with intrusive thoughts, negative self-talk and fears. They concentrate on what they can control, rather than fixating on what they can't control. They know to allocate time each day for 'The The Cs' of mental wellbeing and have a plethora of evidence-based interventions to get back on track if anxiety shows up again. They recognise that mental health is a journey; not a destination. Your child or teen knows the secret question to ask themselves if they are struggling with anxiety during stressful times and who to go to for support if they need a check-in. You are proud that you did the work and just looking for the occasional check-in or new idea to stay ahead of the game.Let's Talk

An anxiety coach will equip you with a range of practical strategies and techniques to manage anxiety effectively. These strategies may include helping your child build resilience, developing coping mechanisms, and implementing positive reinforcement techniques.

My child was an angry perfectionist!
Claire, the meltdowns have stopped and she's having fun again.
She has stopped comparing herself to others all the time. She knows she's good enough. She's stopped thinking about the worst case scenario and her social skills are so much better.
Our son was a worried people pleaser
"He has started noticing when his anxiety needs reassurance. We still use the tokens to reduce the safety behaviour. It has been a life save for our family. he's actually looking forward to the school residential!"
He isn't a picky eater anymore!
"When we went back home this summer, the whole family noticed a change in his behaviour. He joins in, he orders his own food and there's much less drama about making mistakes or being embarrassed."
