About this Event

Part 1 - 26th April 2021


Part 2 - 4th May 2021


20% of adolescents may experience a mental health problem in any given year.

50% of mental health problems are established by age 14 and 75% by the age 24

Anxiety erodes the sense of self,leaving the teenager to doubt their evaluation skills regarding fear based inner and outer information.

It paralyses the freedom of teenage years and in some cases disrupts education and peer friendships. Teenagers start to wory about their mental health and truly believe that no one else feels the way they do. They start to feel different and if left long enough without help the teenager thinks life will always be this way.

With help it won't be!

This workshop is for parents, teachers, young workers,

Based on person centred and CBT principles and strategies this workshop will teach you how to help a teenager control and minimise their anxiety.

You will learn:

the difference between the different anxiety diagnosis’s

Central themes/ psychoeducation about anxiety

How thoughts impact bodily sensations

Cognitive and behavioural symptoms

How to minimise automatic processing and practice the more helpful strategic (controlled) processing of thoughts and emotions.

How to discourage negative attention, memory, judgement and reasoning.

How to minimise reassurance seeking, how to respond when this happens.

Sleep and ways to improve it.

Reflection on differnt aspects of life events that may have contributed to the anxiety.

Avoidance and safety behaviours - How to overcome this.

Principles of person centred attuning, demonstrating an empathic and curious way of being.

Feedback from a parent

"Helen has been amazing - I honestly don’t know how we would have managed without her. After an extensive search online, my mum picked Helen to be my son’s counsellor. It was a really difficult time - my son was struggling with severe panic attacks and was unable to attend school. I was completely overwhelmed and didn’t know how to help him. We were all a bit lost and Helen was my saviour. She very quickly established what the problems were and gave me some much-needed clarity. She then supported us all through some very difficult months, always understanding, wise and non-judgemental. Helen genuinely cares about people and wants to help. My son is much better now, but still likes to see Helen, as she provides a safe place for him to open up and he always comes away feeling positive and empowered. Helen is a wonderful and warm, down-to-earth lady that really knows her stuff"

Feedback from teenage client

"I wanted to say thank you for helping me through one of the most difficult times that I have been through. You taught me that I shouldn't be so hard on myself and that I can do anything I put my mind to. You showed me how to see the bright side of things and how to be at peace with myself.

I passed my GCSEs with A* and B's and I'm going to sixth form to do Maths, Biology and Psychology. I will always be grateful for how much you helped me."
