Is this you?
Your child finds it difficult or impossible to go to school.
Your child gets over anxious, feels ill at the thought of going to school or fights tooth and nail to not leave the house or car.
You dread the daily battles. You worry about the future for your child, how will they ever get an education? You have uncomfortable meetings with both educational and health professionals who don’t seem to be able to give you the answers you crave.
School phobia is making your life hell; your home life is turned upside down by the emotional strain trying to cope with a situation that is outside of most people’s experience. Your life is punctuated with having to apologise and try to explain the behaviour of your child that you don’t fully understand and deep down you somehow feel maybe all this is your fault in some way.
If this is you, if you resonate with part, or this entire picture I would very much like to talk to you. I work with school refusers / phobics and their families advising and coaching them through acceptance and improvement of their situation. I know how it felt for me slipping ever deeper into school phobia and how much I craved somebody I could talk to who could understand.
If you would like to arrange a time to talk through your situation and see how I can help, please do get in touch.
