About Me said...

Understanding anxiety was the key to progress for us. Your child cannot accept, learn and adapt while they remain anxious. We relieved anxiety by removing its sources, such as overscheduling, noise etc (and in our case, even changing schools!). Only once his anxiety had reduced (and allied depression disappeared) did we then start working, successfully, on issues one by one by one...My key realisation was that I am my son's "safe place". He doesn't need any stress from me, on top of everything else!

I find your articles very helpful as I have very recently realized it is what I am dealing with my daughter. I have explained to her what I believe she/we are dealing with and it has helped a lot. I would also in the future like to take you up on your offer to pay a fee and be able to ask your advice in the future on specific issues that may come up from time to time. Thank you again for providing this service, I can honestly say it has helped to make the difference for me and my daughter.
