It can be tough as an individual alone to manage anxiety but as a parent with anxiety, life can become crippling. Whilst anxiety is a fairly normal part of life, because after all, if we did not experience a small amount of anxiety, we would be less likely to be motivated to do anything, anxiety becomes a problem when it interferes with everyday life functioning.

Some of the symptoms of anxiety are:

  • worrying excessively about everyday things
  • sense of always feeling on edge
  • worrying about what is going to happen next, or what will happen in the future

There may be a number of reasons why we experience anxiety and exploring the reason for its occurrence can be helpful for your understanding.

This can be done in a counselling setting which offers a confidential space to talk about what concerns you. For more information on this please contact us at


As parents, we model the ways of the world to our children. As mentioned, anxiety is a part of everyday life and for some it has a far greater impact than for others. The most important thing for your child is modeling how you manage anxiety as this is what they learn. Seeking support to learn tools and strategies that help you navigate this monster in turn helps you to support your child.
