Anxious to Awesome

Everyone experiences feelings of stress and worry at times. When it begins to get in the way of your daily routine and compromises quality of life, it’s time to take action.

Everyone experiences feelings of stress and worry at times. It can actually be helpful, even for kids. Worry or stress can create the conditions of alertness in the mind and body that will increase performance. This can be helpful for giving a speech, taking a test, or finishing a project with a due date looming. Worry turns to anxiety when the feelings of heightened alertness stick around after the stress-inducing event has passed. It can be a vague feeling of worry that niggles your child in the background of her daily life, or it can be debilitating anxiety that causes many missed days of school.

When it begins to get in the way of your daily routine and compromises quality of life, it’s time to take action.  Missing school because of worry-induced tummy aches and head aches, not joining in social activities due to anxious feelings and dealing with sleepless nights is no way to live!

If this is true for you and/or your child, you are not alone.  Worry and stress are among the biggest concerns for kids. Anxiety is one of the primary mental health challenges children face today. Learn to root out the cause of anxious feelings with fun, easy-to-use tools ~ and keep those worries away.

A personalized program just for your family – in your home, on your schedule.

 

This package includes three 45-minute to 1 hours sessions, development of a personalized plan and follow-up.

What You’ll Get:

Session #1:  Assessment.  You and I will connect by phone or Zoom. (Also available in person in the SW Metro area of Minneapolis, MN). You’ll be guided to get clear on what is most important for you and your child, what’s in the way of this, and how to remove it.  This is a deep listening session.  I will then follow up this initial conversation with a detailed and personalized plan.  Everyone is different.  Your plan will be tailored to suit your unique lifestyle, preferences, needs, interests and schedule.  The main goal is to make this plan fun and engaging.

Sessions #2:  Plan of Action.  I’ll present your customized plan and workshop ways to weave it into your life. You are busy.  You don’t need an overwhelming overhaul project in your life.  Small changes made consistently over time lead to profound transformation.  The heart of this program is learning to use “5-minute tune-ups” as needed throughout the day to help yourself and your child shift from anxious to awesome. It also includes proven tools to use ongoing to strengthen and tone the nervous system. My mission is to make this easy and doable for you.  Your child will learn to detect anxious feelings and will be empowered to do these tune-ups as needed.  Kids love being able to take care of themselves in this way.

Session #3:  Deep Dive.  This is where we take it a step further to refine and clarify what is working and how to keep it going.  The mantra here is “Let it Be Easy.”  Good thing is, easy is also often most effective and enduring.  I’ll work with you side-by-side as you make small, effective changes that will lead you down the path of your dreams.  Re-establish balance and harmony in your life. Learn simple, effective strategies for moving from anxious to awesome!
