Why is my child refusing to go to school?

Children refuse to attend school for all sorts of reasons. They are usually related to an event (or series of events) in school, that have led to the taking control of the situation themselves and expressing their feelings by wanting to avoid the source of the difficulty.
I would advise you to talk to the school, as priority (without betraying whatever your child has confided in you). Explain the difficulties you are having and ask them to help you. Schools have access to a wealth of support including counselling support , school nurses and family support workers.

Does my child have anxiety?

Does my child have anxiety? Is this something you ask yourself? With all children, it’s important to listen to what they are telling you and not to respond with “It doesn’t matter” or “Try not to worry.”
Have you thought about developing a ‘Worry Box?’ where they can write or have help to write their worries down. Then post them in the box and let the child empty the box into the bin, regularly.

Is your child anxious about Christmas?

Christmas plays are upon us! Children are under a lot of pressure at this time of year- to dress up, to learn words, to attend parties, to have a different routine, to meet up with unfamiliar relatives and to be good. Not all our children are excited! For some children, this time of year can make them very anxious.
Worried about your child’s anxiety? Struggling to access support? Call me for a chat on 07746756871 or email me at
I have loads of suggestions and things you can try to help your child cope.
