Understanding Therapy for Anxiety

Is your child struggling with anxiety?

While anxiety in children is common, many parents may find it difficult to relate to their child’s experiences and wonder what they can do to help. A child suffering from anxiety can often feel scared or nervous, making daily life tough. Anxiety in children often displays itself as excessive worry or fear, which can lead to panic attacks or distress that affect their daily lives, activities and social interactions. At its worst, it can prevent a child from doing activities they once enjoyed.

While it can be hard to see your child suffer, the first step in helping your child get back to normal is understanding what they’re going through. By understanding this, you will be able to support them through their anxiety treatment. 

At the Youth Fairy, we believe in a gentle and understanding approach towards supporting children with anxiety. Our team of youth fairies are trained to recognise the signs of childhood anxiety and can develop a plan that is specifically suited to your child.

Whether you’re looking for therapy for teenage anxiety or support for younger children, with us, your child will develop an understanding of how their brain works, understand what they can do to better help themselves, build confidence and take those important steps towards wellness.

How To Help Childhood Anxiety:
Understanding The Signs and Symptoms

If you have looked all over the internet, searching for answers to questions like “how to help my son with anxiety” or “how to help a teenager with anxiety”, we understand your dilemma. 

As a parent or caregiver of a child dealing with anxiety, it often feels like there’s no right answer. However, anxiety in children can manifest in various ways, which is why it is essential for you to be able to recognise the signs. Treatment for anxiety in teenagers and children targets these behaviours, helping your child cope with their triggers. Here are a few common symptoms your child may experience:

Excessive Worrying

Intense worrying about day-to-day life, such as school or social interactions. Your child may feel overly worried about everyday things and may require constant reassurance.

Physical Symptoms

Your child may frequently complain about frequent headaches, stomachaches or general physical discomfort. In extreme cases, they may suffer from panic attacks.

Avoidance Behaviour

Children dealing with anxiety may refuse to participate in certain activities or situations due to fear or discomfort. This may cause them to isolate themselves from their peers. It can lead to them avoiding things they once used to enjoy.

Difficulty Sleeping

Your child may have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep and may experience frequent nightmares related to specific fears or worries. They may also struggle to sleep alone.

Changes in Behaviour

There may be noticeable shifts in behaviour. Your child may often feel irritable or restless and may cry excessively.

Whether you’re looking for anxiety treatment for your child or the appropriate therapy for teenage anxiety, at The Youth Fairy, we can help. Get in touch with us to find out more.

Adopting A Solution Focused Approach to Anxiety with The Youth Fairy

When children constantly worry or feel scared, it can be difficult for them to do the things they love. It is essential for children to be able to explore various areas of life, especially as they grow. At the Youth Fairy, we use a solution-focused approach to help your child understand their brain and their triggers, learning what they can do more or less of in their daily life to take control of their thoughts and their life.  

When it comes to treatment for anxiety in teenagers and children, our solution-focused approach can help your child to develop more positive, mentally healthy behaviours. This approach helps children gain more control of the part of the brain that helps them think, reason and come up with solutions to problems. This is also the part that helps them make good decisions, such as thinking happy or positive thoughts. By exercising this part, we teach children and teenagers how to deal with stress and anxiety in better ways. Over time, they will adopt a new perspective on life, helping them feel happier and more in control. 

Find Out More

The solution-focused approach focuses on finding solutions. As qualified solution-focused therapists, we work with your child to set achievable goals and milestones, promoting a sense of accomplishment and boosting their self-esteem. In a typical session, children are encouraged to talk about their aspirations and what they enjoy. This helps them shift the focus from their anxious feelings to their interests and passions. By putting an emphasis on the positive aspects of their life, they will build resilience, confidence and a more positive mindset.

Using playful, creative and interactive methods, our therapeutic approach involves techniques like storytelling, drawing or role-playing exercises. These activities help younger children and teenagers communicate their thoughts and develop effective coping strategies. In this way, children dealing with anxiety learn to identify their strengths and are more empowered to deal with their anxiety effectively.
