UNDERSTANDING AND MANAGING YOUR CHILD’S ANXIETY
This programme highlights the necessity for parents to understand and manage their own anxiety and explains why reassurance and avoidance give short-term relief but can feed into the anxiety and actually make things worse. The focus throughout is on how adults can support children to ‘take their power back’ from whatever is triggering them to feel anxious.
The latest book by Dr. Claire Hayes
FINDING HOPE IN THE AGE OF ANXIETY
This book presents anxiety as a normal part of every stage of life from birth to death. The book is based on twenty-five years of helping people of all ages cope with anxiety and is enriched by a range of relevant case-studies.
‘I can’t face this. No one understands how hard it is for me. People are looking at me. Why am I like this? Why can I not be like everyone else? What’s wrong with me?’.
