About the book

Does your child appear to worry a lot?

Perhaps they have frequent tummy upsets, or are irritable, tearful, angry or withdrawn? 

Do they have problems concentrating or show a loss of enthusiasm for their usual interests?

These could all be signs that your child is struggling with anxiety.

This practical guide combines proven cognitive-behavioural therapy methods used by child psychologists in schools with simple activities to help your child to overcome anxiety. It’s aimed at children aged 7–11 because a lot happens in these years that can impact a child’s emotional well-being, not just now but for years to come.

Your child will be guided, with the help of Fiz – a friendly and supportive character they can identify with – through fun and engaging activities which are interspersed with useful tips, inspirational statements and practical information for parents.
