Anxiety can be seen in most classrooms and often feels debilitating for the young person suffering. It can lead to generalised anxiety disorder and clinical depression and may be the cause of poor attendance and an inability to engage with school work, socialising or family life. On this pathway, the counsellor will help the young person explore their anxiety before it escalates. The student will learn to recognise triggers for their anxiety, strategies to manage it, as well as support building their self-esteem and resilience. This improved confidence should lead to improved engagement in all aspects of their school and home life.
