Welcoming enquiries from the areas of Uxbridge, Northwood, Watford Ruislip and Pinner.

Are you concerned that your child is not as happy as they otherwise could be, and wish there was something you could do to help them? If your child lacks confidence, it can easy for them to create fears and insecurites when faced with challenges in their lives.

They may have social anxiety, and feel harshly judged by others, or feel shy and unable to speak up for themselves. When children lack belief in their ability to cope with situations, this can lead to avoidance of situations, such as socialising or school itself.

Listed below are some of the issues that I can help children with:

•  Fears & Phobias •  Difficult behaviour
•  Shyness/lack of confidence •  Worry/Anxiety
•  Self harm •  School avoidance
•  Speech problems/stuttering •  Unhappiness
•  Emotional Trauma •  Obesity
•  IBS •  Sleeping problems
• ADHD • Eating disorders

Keira, 10, did the Thrive Programme for anxiety leading to IBS symptoms:

Thrive is a very powerful, six session training programme that helps you and your child to really understand themselves, their beliefs and the thinking is causing their anxiety and symptoms. Once you have that insight, it can be very easy to think differently, increase self esteem, feel more in control and change old patterns of behaviour.

Very often, frustrated parents come to me not knowing how to best respond to their children's behaviour - unfortunately some parenting styles and decisions (despite parents best efforts and intentions) can actually lead to symptoms and anxieties escalating in children. For children under the age of 16, it is beneficial if one or both parents be present in some or all of the sessions. This will help you to gain the understanding of why you child has the issues they have, enabling you to help and support them outside of the sessions.

Elliot, aged 14, was struggling with self esteem and body image issues...

I came to Cara to try to alleviate my social-anxiety. I was so nervous about leaving my house just because of how I looked every single day; I would spend hours indoors just waiting by the door to pluck up the courage to leave. My focus at school was beginning to drop and I was just getting worse. After just a couple of sessions with Cara I felt so much better, like a completely different person! I can’t even remember what it was like to be so worried and stressed out. After completing the course I feel so much more free and can have a happy day every day! I cannot both thank nor recommend Cara enough, she has done so much to help me and my life has truly been changed. Thank You Cara

How old does my child need to be?

Thrive is most effective with children over the age of 10 as they are at an age where they can understand, process and put into action what we discuss in the session. That said, bright children who are mature for their age who are under 10 can still certainly benefit.

Another option to consider is that the parent/s attend the session without the child. This may be necessary if the child is too young to understand the programme, or, for whatever reason, unwilling to. I can teach you the principles of Thrive so that you can understand, help and support your child in the best way possible.
