Soothe your child’s anxiety and help them to develop emotional resilience for the future. The number of children suffering from anxiety is on the rise and most parents will readily admit that they feel ill prepared and lost for words when it comes to supporting their child’s emotional wellbeing. Author Alicia Eaton is a Harley Street practitioner with over 15 years’ experience of helping children to feel more confident and overcome feelings of anxiety. As she explains, nearly all children will sustain bumps and bruises on the outside of their body so it’s only natural that they’ll also pick up a few on the inside, in the form of anxiety and worries. Learning how to tackle these quickly, stops them from turning into much bigger problems later.
Whether your child has a fear of dogs, spiders, dentists or injections, struggles with school, performing on stage or sleeping at night, this book will teach you the simple solutions every parent needs to know. When your child feels happy, you’ll feel happier too.

This is a great book and I’m really glad I got a copy of it. As the parent of a sensitive child, I always appreciate tips, tricks and strategies to quell his anxiety at the doctor or dentist office. The tone of the book is educational, soothing and confident. I really enjoyed the conversational and reassuring style of Alicia Eaton. If your child, like mine, is sensitive or has mild anxiety from time to time, I really recommend this book!

This is an extremely informative gem of a book. If you have or know of anyone with sensitive/anxious children this would definitely be recommended. It’s very easy to read with expert advice and exercises which appear to be an excellent support for the child. It also, gives advice and guidance for parents as to how to deal with certain sensitive or anxious situations.
It really does make you aware of how children adapt and learn from their environment and how this may influence them.
Would highly recommend this to all who are in need of this support.


I found a lot of this book to be really helpful to give me tips to help my daughter through this time she is going through. She gets stressed when going certain places and it helped with me finding other ways to help her remain calm and know that everything was going to be alright. A lovely book for any parent, not just ones with sensitivities.
