Taming Worry

Taming Worry is an 8 week group designed to support children between the ages of 7-10 as they explore their feelings of fear, anxiety, and worry in a fun and encouraging environment.

Through the exploration of their worries through activities, crafts and discussion; the children learn skills and strategies to cope with their fears and anxiety in an supportive setting with their peers.

Topics explored include:

  • symptoms of anxiety
  • individual anxiety triggers
  • how our brains work
  • self talk
  • negative thoughts
  • mindfulness & movement

A group for parents/guardians is held at the same time in another room. This provides support to the parent/guardian(s) and encourages families to practice and discuss skills together between group sessions.
