“Parenting an Anxious Child or Teen” Workshops

Is this you?
You are the parent of a child or teenager who is very anxious and fearful. You are confused about where this anxiety has come from and how best to deal with it. Sometimes you are reassuring and other times you think it might be best to ‘toughen’ your child or teen up a little to life’s uncertainties.
Is this your child?
S/he is overly worried about tests and exams, crowds, checking doors are locked, germs, friendships, not making the grade, the health of the people s/he loves and so much more. It seems that each day brings a new thing to worry about and you are increasingly trying to manage what s/he is exposed to.

“As a result of attending your workshop I have gained knowledge which makes me a better parent, I am calmer and more equipped to deal with stressful situations by using what I learned. Frankly speaking, I am shouting a lot less and have an inch or two more patience than I previously had.” S.J. 16/10/16
“I just wanted to pass on my thanks to you as I found the workshop on Monday to be very useful. I have found I am much more patient and am managing to maintain that patience throughout an episode my child’s of anxiety for longer.” J.L. September 2016 “Dear Inger, I wanted to say a huge thank you. I had an opportunity to use the techniques you taught just the other week with my eldest son. It worked like a dream and what could have been a disastrous situation was averted. Thank you, thank you.” B.B. July 2016
