Anxiety Workshops

On the 31st January 2019 from 1.00 - 2.50pm, we have organised a parent/carer workshop on anxiety. This workshop will be led by Caroline Prout who is a Clinical Hypnotherapist and has a vast experience in anxiety. During the workshop, there will be information about what exactly anxiety is, common triggers and causes, plus some excellent strategies which can be used with children to help reduce anxiety and provide long term techniques. Unfortunately, no babies and pre-school children will be allowed to attend this workshop.
