Over the years I have been asked many times to do a proper tour around the country and I have finally made a plan to do just that.
In this live show, I’m going to focus on understanding how anxiety affects children, teenagers and families and will give concrete and practical tips for how parents can help children deal with the stresses and pressures in their lives.
We know that anxiety is a normal and important part of our lives. We need to be able to get anxious to keep safe, but sometimes children and teenagers can get so anxious that it prevents them from doing regular things in their everyday lives.
Delivered with my usual blend of expert knowledge, common sense, sensitivity and humour, and with an open forum questions and answers at the end, the talk should be of interest to anyone living with, or working with children. The presentation is pitched at what adults can do to help children and teenagers, not for children or teenagers themselves.
The talk will be about an hour long followed by a brief interval and then I’ll be returning to the stage for an open-forum audience Q&A where you can ask whatever questions you like.
