Anxiety and other emotions

Children, like adults, experience anxiety in a variety of ways. For some children, they become overly anxious about separating from their parents or staying away from home, for others their anxiety becomes overwhelming in response to school, and for some children they experience anxiety in relation to becoming ill or being hurt. There are many forms of anxiety disorders in children and the manifestations are just as varied. What’s more is, children are not always great at identifying what it is that they are experiencing, let alone what is upsetting them. Dr Marsden can work with you and your child to identify the emotional difficulties that are holding them back, and to develop new ways of managing these difficult emotions so they do not interfere with everyday life.
