Appeared On







Karen Young's hugely popular "Hey Warrior" workshop, explores why anxiety is a very normal human response but for as many as 1 in 5 young people, the symptoms become so intrusive, they significantly interfere with day to day living. The effects can steal into families, classrooms and friendships. They can undermine the way children see themselves and shrink their world – but it doesn’t have to be this way. Anxiety is very manageable when it is recognised and properly managed. With the right support children can be empowered with the skills and knowledge to manage anxiety and move forward with courage and resilience.

This dynamic workshop will help participants to recognise anxiety disorders in children and adolescents (5 - 18yr olds). It will delve into the obvious and not so obvious signs of anxiety, discuss where they come from and why they exist, and offer a range of practical, powerful interventions to assist participants to respond effectively within their own professional context. 

This topic can be presented as a keynote, half day or full day workshop to professionals, parents and young people too!
