What happens in Anxiety Therapy?
It's a big feeling of relief when you find the right therapist. You will have a plan and you will be involved in your child's therapy.
Learning what to say and do to support your child or teen when they're struggling with anxiety is a vital part of the solution.
You will understand the importance of working as a team - anxiety is a family affair and each member must be educated about the ways to handle anxiety so it is not accommodated at home.
During the online group therapy sessions, your child will learn about their: Core Fears; Safety Behaviours, Distorted Thinking Style; and be able to spot new anxiety themes.
They will have a solid ERP therapy programme in place with a monthly Fear Hierarchy; with goals aligned to their values and a weekly exposures challenge chart with a reward system to keep the whole family motivated to bust anxiety.
I only take on a small number of therapy clients each September and all must be screened to ensure the program is relevant to their needs.
If your child is aged 10-18 years, lives in the UAE (or same time zone); is suffering with anxiety and you would like to know more, please add your name to the waitlist and I will contact you directly.Yes, I'm interested
Life is full of ups and downs and the sooner your child is able to cope and tolerate these uncomfortable thoughts and feelings - the sooner they will have the superpowers they need to deal with conflict, criticism, change, stress and maintaining their personal boundaries.
Group therapy is the most powerful way to treat anxiety.
- Your child will listen to other people going through the same problems. 50% of young people have anxiety - your child is going to realise they’re not weird, or different and that they have a lot in common with other people.
- Motivation and accountability is much higher in a group scenario. The groups are small and respectful. We maintain ethical boundaries, speaking and listening skills. Your child will build empathy to others who are struggling and feel brave enough to share what they’re dealing with.
- We follow a flight path - there is a strategic way to work with anxiety. It involves a lot of exposure work and we can do a lot of this ‘in vivo’ during sessions. Great for social anxiety, OCD, dealing with perfectionism, exam stress, GAD and phobias.
- Your child is going to see other anxiety themes and have an amazing awareness of how anxiety and OCD ‘hide’ amongst us. Imagine your child in the future being able to deal with managing teams, deadlines, relationships and being excited about new experiences because of the work they did now. It’s powerful what can be achieved.
- It’s fun. I know you don’t believe me but it’s the truth. I have a more difficult time convincing kids it’s time to stop therapy that I do convincing them to start. Your child is going to learn so much about themselves, how they perceive the world and how their thoughts can dictate their actions - they will be hooked on looking after their mental health and see it as a lifelong journey; not a destination.
If your child is aged between 10-18 years, you live in Dubai or are on the same time zone as The UAE; they are available after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays for 6 hours per month, please add your name to the waitlist so I can contact you for an informal chat.
