About this course

There are many things that can make your child anxious. It can be very frustrating when, as the responsible adult, you are doing everything you can to help, but things just keep getting worse. This online course is designed for adults responsible for children who are experiencing such a level of anxiety that’s it’s limiting life in some way. It may be that they are struggling to attend school, or they have separation anxiety so you can’t leave them along for any length of time. You may have already sought and/or received professional help through school or another therapist. And yet, they are still struggling. You are desperate to help them. If this is you, then you are in the right place. I’m not going to tell you that what you have done so far is wrong, or that what I am doing is right. I am going to give you a toolkit that you can apply to your situation to greatest effect. All the lessons are easy to follow, even if you have no experience. You can even use them on yourself!
