To manage your child’s/teen’s anxiety

No Scaredy Cats

Learn simple steps to help your child reduce anxiety & build resilience.

Parenting has got to be the hardest job on the planet – but it’s also the most rewarding. We are often plagued with worries as parents – will our child do well in life, will they be happy and safe, will they make friends at school.

But sometimes it can seem like our children are burdened with their own anxieties too. Everyone becomes anxious, but how do we know if our child’s anxiety is out of the ordinary? Sometimes it can be hard to tell if their worries are anxiety, or just a part of normal day to day life.

No Scaredy Cats is a child development course that aims to support parents and their child through the ups and downs of life. It is what we call a ‘parent-led’ approach, meaning that parents take on the role of the coach in their child’s life, and are able to guide them through emotionally distressing episodes, with the focus on anxiety.

Designed & developed by psychologist, author and teacher Michael Hawton, it equips you with a practical and easy set of tools, and a solid understanding of the theory behind these to enable you to build resilience in your child.

‘A huge thank you for your wonderful work Tuesday evening! I’ve had a quick flick through the evaluation forms and have passed them on to Peta to collate for the Diocese; everyone got so much from the evening, thought you were BRILLIANT and wanted to see so much more!! I personally think you should be part of the curriculum!

My heartfelt thanks for your beautiful patience and your calm wisdom – it is truly wonderful to see someone so passionate and loving what they do. You are helping so many parents who need a new direction or affirmation that they are doing the right thing and by default brightening and influencing the lives of so many children – you should feel very proud that you are making a real difference. I know I am absolutely chuffed to have found you and will ensure I tell as many people as possible how wonderful you are.

Thank you.’
