Learn to be care free!
Is being spontaneous and care free difficult for your chid? Questions such as ‘What If I don’t do well?, ‘what if people don’t like me?’ are regularly asked. Physical complains such as stomach aches, nausea, headaches and sleep difficulties are all too common.
If this sounds familiar, it is likely your child may be experiencing Anxiety.
What is Childhood Anxiety?
Anxiety is the most common reason for parents seeking Psychological intervention at Vida Psychology. It is characterised by excessive worry about a things such as grades, friendships and performance in sports for instance. On the one hand it can be great seeing your child planning ahead of time and be organised. On the other it is hard seeing your child becoming overwhelmed when things don’t go as planned or your child is faced with uncertainty. Because children who experience anxiety are frightened of uncertainty, it is usual for them to over-plan. Unfortunately when things don’t go as planned these children experience high levels of anxiety as they believe they have no control over their environment.
If untreated, Anxiety will have a detrimental effect not only on your child’s physical health, but also their emotional well-being. Some of the physical symptoms your child can experience are stomach aches, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, dizziness, headaches, sleep difficulties, nail biting and bed wetting. This in turn will begin to dictate what your child does or doesn’t do. This in turn is likely to have a negative impact on your child’s self-esteem, confidence and ability to make friends and general emotional well-being and further exacerbating their anxiety.
At Vida Psychology we know how important early intervention is, so our highly specialised Psychologists will make sense of your child’s anxiety and teach you how to best support your child in becoming confident and care free.
