Anxious children & teenagers

Britain’s schoolchildren are suffering from an epidemic of anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts. In a research study by the charity Stem4 they determined that anxiety is the most common problem. Stem4 determined that no less than two-thirds of the 300 teachers surveyed had come across a young person dealing with anxiety in the past year.

Early intervention to stop any negative behaviours spiraling out of control is essential. Techniques and tools of Mindfulness and NLP are both proven to help reduce anxiety.

 

 

Usually 3-4 sessions are required on a weekly basis and then clients move onto monthly management programmes.

Increasing pressure from online gaming and social media is overloading the limbic system of our children's brains, firing their 'fight flight' response on an almost constant basis. 'Down time' is essential for this instinctive system to rest. 

Also, our poor nutritional diet as a result of modern day living has been linked by science to the exponential increase in anxiety levels. Advanced nutritional advice on gut health and its relationship to mental health is also addressed as part of the work with children and teenagers.

Andrea has an enhanced DBS registration and will use techniques, such as the ones listed below, during your child’s coaching sessions:

  • Becoming mindfully aware
  • Anchoring positive emotions
  • Changing thought processes
  • Addressing body language
  • Visual imagery techniques
  • Nutrition and gut/brain health

"Since Monday I’ve stopped cows milk in everything bar some yoghurt I had to finish up. Happened to say to my husband earlier “I’m not sure I dare say it, but I haven’t had restless legs since I stopped the milk”. And even after saying it, they haven’t started up!!! As someone said to me this evening “name one other species that continues to drink milk after they’ve been weaned”. Good point methinks. The microbiome certainly is fascinating – thank you so much for introducing me to it 😊 Also, after a bit of digging around I found this: https://www.godairyfree.org/personal-stories/dairy-free-restless-leg-syndrome-rls/amp"
