When a child struggles with anxiety, it affects the whole family. And this was the case with 7-year-old G.
When her mother reached out to WISDOM Coach® Sharon, her daughter had already worked with a few specialists.
WISDOM Coach® Sharon shares how she helped G in this video.
What G’s Mother Had to Say
The Situation – as told by G’s Mother
“My daughter was suffering a really extreme anxiety to the point that everyday tasks like just going down the street or going out for dinner were non-existent. It was hard on myself, [because I was] working two jobs at the time. I couldn’t be away from her longer than maybe two to three hours, and then she would start lashing out and just wanting her mum.”
The Solution – as told by WISDOM Coach® Sharon
This mother learned about WISDOM Coach® Sharon and asked Sharon to work with her daughter, G who was seven years old at the time.
When G sat down with Coach Sharon for the first time, Sharon observed that, “It was obvious she’d been through this before because she rattled off everything that was wrong with her and what she was going through.”
WISDOM Coach® Sharon’s response was, “We’re going to change the way you think about these things. We don’t have to re-hash things. You can look at how you think about them.”
Sharon worked with her step-by-step to build her confidence.
They started with a 6-week, 6- session program starting with MindPower – learning how your brain works – because it forms the basis of everything else.
Coach Sharon says, “She (G) was just so keen to tackle the next thing and get through what she has been going through.”
One victory built on the next, built on the next and her confidence grew.
Be sure to watch the video to learn more about the skills G learned.
The Result – as told G’s Mother
“Sharon helped G feel more safe within herself….We went from not being able to go grocery shopping or out to dinner, to her wanting to go out to dinner every night. She’s had a week’s holiday away from me. School is not as scary as it was. At her lowest point, G would not go to school. She would cling to me at even the thought of going to school. After working with Sharon, she goes off to school. I 100% [believe that] Sharon and her amazing work [is what] got her there. I cannot recommend Sharon highly enough. She saved me from packing up and running away.”
And look what happened a couple of years later:
Sharon received an update from G’s mum in late 2022. Here’s a photo of G as she headed out to school. She was about to give a speech to the whole school as a candidate for school captain.
And she won!
