The Love Your Anxious Child Program

Evidence-based research has uncovered the dynamic connection between anxiety, and chronic brain, body and gut inflammation. In simple terms, when inflammation is reduced in the brain, body and gut, chronic anxiety is reduced.

Not only that, there’s mounting evidence to support the vital role a mother’s intuition plays in the successful treatment of her child.

This program will provide you with in-depth, evidence-based information about the causes and effects of anxiety, as well as the simple, common-sense action steps you can take to support and heal your anxious child.

It's about empowering mums
