I started my counselling career working with children at risk of exclusion in mainstream school more then ten years ago, and I soon noticed a common theme. I noticed that all of the children that were referred to me, suffered from anxiety, even if they presented as angry, and out of control.
For the past seven years I have worked as a trauma counsellor in a domestic violence service with all of the children I work with, suffering from anxiety to some degree. As a former sufferer of childhood anxiety myself, I never underestimate the impact that it can have on a child.
My passion is helping break down the fear about anxiety so that children and families can claim back their lives. I want to educate about how anxiety affects the body and how important nutrition and self care are in order to recover.
I will continue to grow my website over the next year or so, and I am always interested to hear from parents, children, and carers about what products they would like to see available for children. If you have a suggestion please contact me and let me know your thoughts. - Laura.
