More about this group

Children Anxiety Group - Coaching

It's not uncommon for children to create anxious thoughts (he doesn't like me, if I play that sport I'll get hurt/not succeed, I'm ugly/stupid, she's laughing at me). The "I'm not good enough" &/or anxious thoughts dictate behaviors (academic achievement, social success, behavior/emotional management). As children age they search for examples of validation to hold the negative thoughts as truth. With positive empowerment internal dialogue & strategies, your child can have high self confidence, possess emotional management & be the BEST version of self now & thus their future. (Location/Date/Time IS flexible).
