Anxiety can rule not only your child’s life, but it can rule your life as well.

Do you find yourself:

Walking on eggshells around your child?
Avoiding things because you know it will cause your child anxiety and many more worries?
Noticing they have lots of tummy aches, headaches and physical symptoms?
Feeling powerless and unsure how to help?

Your child:

Doesn’t want to be anxious
They want a good sleep
They don’t want to feel like that
You don’t deserve that, Your child doesn’t deserve that, they need skills, your child needs your help and you can help them.

The workshop draws upon Catherine Coulter’s 30 years in the NHS as a licensed practitioner working over 18 years in inpatient and outpatient settings (CAMHS) working with children, families, and parents with complex emotional and behavioral difficulties.
