Strengthing Children Against Anxiety

What could our children do if they knew in their hearts they were brave enough? All children are capable of their very own versions of greatness. For too many though, anxiety will shut down their capacity to discover their potential - but it doesn't have to be this way. This transformational session will provide the essential information and strategies to support children to build courage and resilience, uncover their strengths, and take anxiety back to small enough. We will discuss ways to nurture the mindset, skills and qualities that will strengthen all children for life. We will explore:

  • a new, empowering way for children and adults to think about anxiety;

  • why anxiety feels the way it does and how to use this to manage anxiety;

  • how to build courage, resilience, and confidence in children with anxiety;

  • proven, practical ways to calm and strengthen an anxious brain;

  • the power of parents to move children towards brave - and how to do this when anxiety is in the way;

  • how to respond to anxiety in the moment to make way for calm and courage;

  • the different ways anxiety can manifest (including anger, tantrums, meltdowns, poor grades, inattention, hyperactivity, disruptive behaviour), and what to do.

Because our children are mighty. Now to make sure they know it too.
