Reducing Anxiety in our Schools

  • Children can’t access the curriculum and learn when they experience anxiety. Mental health issues have exploded and escalated, with even primary children self- harming, school-refusing and suffering general anxiety. We have worked together to give understanding and practical solutions to all those involved in education.

“Excellent training – wish our whole school SLT had come. Thought provoking looking at ways to avoid anxiety in the first place rather than interventions to fix it.”

“This was a highly engaging and informative day. I learnt so many new things — lots of food for thought about projection and containment.”
