Workshop for Parents on teenagers/pre-teens with anxiety
I’m often asked how can parents help children with anxiety. On Sat 1 Sept I am holding a workshop in Guildford for mums and dads to help them understand anxiety, and what useful strategies can be used to improve life for you and your child. More details on the workshop are below
