Anxiety

Anxiety is one of the most common presentations we see in our Clinic across children and adolescents with and without additional needs. Our world is increasingly complex and kids and teens can understandably struggle to navigate this unpredictable landscape.

Whether your child is presenting with general anxiety (“Everything worries me!”), specific phobia (storms, dogs, sickness, the dark), panic attacks, or social anxiety, we’re here to help. We want to empower your child to manage their thinking and behaviour so that they’re no longer a victim of unhelpful thinking patterns.

We place a heavy emphasis on normalising anxiety, as children and adolescents, still forging their identities, can struggle with low self-esteem if they start to believe there’s something “wrong” with who they are.

Some degree of anxiety is a part of life, but when your child has the right tools in their cognitive and behavioural toolkit, it doesn’t have to run their lives.

We treat:

  • General anxiety
  • Social anxiety
  • Separation anxiety
  • Specific phobia
  • Panic attacks
