Unlock The Parent Power to Support Your Teen's Recovery From Anxiety
In a Psychologist-Led Programme

..,,.. even if your teen's anxiety feels uncontrollable, they struggle to open up and you feel the return to joyful family life is out of reach.

Sound familiar?...... 

Your teen is starting to withdraw from things they use to do such as school, social gatherings, and family meals.

Engaging in conversations is a constant struggle. You're walking on eggshells, unsure how to approach the topic of anxiety without making things worse.

Despite your best intentions, feelings of helplessness creep in as you try to help but witness your teen's battle with anxiety getting worse.

Managing your teen's anxiety has started to dominate your daily life, leaving little room for spontaneity.

Family relationships are becoming strained.

You want your teen to be happy and are committed to helping them but don't know what is going to make the difference.

You're searching for effective guidance and support to help your teen break free from anxiety's grip.

If this resonates with you, know that you're not alone.

You are who we help!"

.....You've been yearning for the anxiety to reduce, for your teen to find relief and peace to start getting back to their old self. But despite your unwavering efforts, you're not seeing the positive changes you both desperately need. In fact, as time goes by, it feels like things are getting progressively worse. The anxiety has stubbornly taken center stage, casting a shadow over your relationship, and you're left wondering where to turn next.

You've been pouring your heart into helping your teen, using all the tools in your parenting toolkit—offering reassurance, encouragement, tirelessly trying to fix things, and always striving to make their world better. Why? Because your love and concern for their well-being know no bounds..........                                                                
 

So Why Is It So Hard for Parents to Make a Difference?

ANXIETY IS TRICKY......YET PREDICTABLE.

 

While it may feel like a maze, anxiety follows a path that, once understood, reveals clear patterns and cycles. It's these very patterns that can catch parents and teens in what we call:

 

"THE ANXIETY TRAP"

Parenting strategies that used to work wonders may suddenly seem ineffective or even counterproductive when anxiety intensifies. It's not that these strategies have lost their value; it's that anxiety requires a tailored approach, one that understands its nuances and predictable patterns.

Are You Caught in the Anxiety Trap? For many parents, the journey of navigating their teen's anxiety can be an exhausting and bewildering experience. Three common signs of being ensnared in The Anxiety Trap:

 

1. Feeling Stressed and Frustrated:

One of the earliest signs is the mounting stress and frustration that can creep into your daily life. It's natural to feel overwhelmed when you're faced with your teen's anxiety, but when typical parenting strategies seem to yield little results, the weight of anxiety can become burdensome.

2. Finding the Help You Offer to Your Teen Doesn't Make a Difference:

Perhaps you've tried offering plenty reassurance and encouragement yet your teen's anxiety persists. It's a common predicament for parents who, despite their best efforts, discover that the usual approaches may not effectively alleviate their teen's anxiety, leaving them feeling helpless.

 

3. Not Communicating or Having Lots of Arguments:

The impact of anxiety doesn't just stop at your teen—it ripples through the family. Ongoing struggles with anxiety can strain the parent-teen relationship, causing tension, conflicts, and a sense of disconnection.

Caught in "The Anxiety Trap"?

It's natural to seek a way out, aiming for the most effective support for your teen. This quest often leads parents to believe that only professionals—therapists, counselors, or psychologists—hold the key to alleviating their teen's anxiety.

 

The immediate thought is to pursue one-to-one therapy or counselling, whether through school, CAMHS, or private practice.

Is Professional Help the Only Answer for Your Teen's Anxiety?

Therapy offers teens valuable tools and strategies, akin to providing a torch to navigate through the darkness of anxiety. However, this approach sometimes misses a crucial aspect: the daunting nature of walking through that darkness alone.

Facing long waitlists for therapy means a delayed start to acquiring these essential tools. And once equipped, not every teen can seamlessly utilise them—like keeping the torch lit or navigating the path ahead when the darkness feels all-consuming.

 

tourch.png

Imagine, instead of watching them struggle to find their way, you're right there beside them. You're not just a guide but a companion who helps shine the light, change the batteries, and take each step together towards recovery. Whether they're receiving professional help or you're navigating this path together.

This becomes even more crucial if your teen isn’t receiving professional help. The belief that only therapists or counsellors can effect change is a common misconception. In reality, your role as a parent is incredibly powerful. Your daily interactions, the emotional climate you foster at home, and your approach to their anxiety play a crucial part in their ability to manage and overcome it.

Moreover, while professional help focuses on equipping your teen, it often leaves parents without the tools needed for day-to-day support. You're the one who's there in the everyday moments when anxiety strikes, ready to provide not just a reassuring presence but also practical, effective strategies tailored to your teen's needs.

Our approach recognises the unique role parents play in their teen's recovery. It’s about empowering you to be more than a bystander; it's about becoming an active participant, an ally equipped with the right strategies for those everyday moments that matter. By understanding the predictable patterns of anxiety and learning how you can intervene effectively, you become a key ally in your teen's journey to overcoming anxiety.

PAUSE FOR A MOMENT AND PICTURE THIS

Imagine having the insights, tools, and strategies at your fingertips to effectively support your anxious teen. Envision yourself confidently navigating those tough moments with your teen, backed by knowledge and practical approaches that truly make a difference. What if you could be the guiding light they need, seamlessly integrating this support into your daily life?

Empowered Parenting:

The sense of helplessness fades away, replaced by a profound understanding of anxiety and how to combat it. You're no longer isolated but part of a vibrant community of parents on similar journeys. Sharing experiences and strategies enriches your approach, ensuring you never feel alone in this battle again.

A Home of Resilience and Peace:

Your home transforms from a battleground of anxiety into a sanctuary of peace and resilience. With a comprehensive toolbox of strategies, you confidently guide your teen through anxiety's challenges. The tension gives way to tranquility, fostering an environment where your teen can truly flourish.

A Future Unlocked:

Together, you and your teen step into a future where anxiety no longer casts a shadow over potential and happiness. Empowered with skills for resilience, your teen is ready to embrace life's opportunities fully. You've not only helped them conquer anxiety but have also laid the foundation for lasting success and well-being.

Sounds too good to be true?

It's not.

...I know because I’ve supported many parents to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to help their teens to recover from anxiety problems.

 

I can’t wait to show YOU how.

What Participants Say: 

"THIS COURSE HAS LITERALLY CHANGED MY AND MY FAMILIES LIFE"

"This course has literally changed my, and my families', life. There are less arguments and conflict in the house, and more connection and understanding. I am so happy I connected with Dr Beck and enrolled on the course - she has been so insightful into the hidden world of anxiety and teenager-hood. A wonderful, compassionate person, it has been a joy to learn from her and get to know her."

But wait, have we officially met?

Hey, I'm Dr Rebecca Mount! 

But please call me Beck. I'm a Mum to three children, a lover of the outdoors and nature (as long as this in done in some level of comfort), holiday maker, fan of good pub grub by a cosy fire and the odd glass of wine. 

 

... with a background as a Clinical Psychologist, my passion lies in helping teens conquer challenges with the support of their parents.

 

I'm here to guide you on this journey. With over twenty years of experience in child and adolescent mental health, I'm committed to empowering families to thrive together.

 

I’ve seen first-hand the difference parents can make to their teens journey of recovery.

IMG_4908.heic

For over two decades, I've been immersed in the world of clinical psychology, specialising in children, teenagers, parents, and families. It's a path that has allowed me to witness the complexities of anxiety up close and personal, and it's a journey that has led me to create something truly transformative.

As a Clinical Psychologist, I've always strived to provide the best possible support to my clients, especially when anxiety is at the forefront of their lives. Yet, I couldn't help but notice a recurring pattern—an aspect where traditional approaches often fell short.

 

You see, anxiety is a formidable opponent, one that often affects not just the individual experiencing it but the entire family dynamic. Weekly sessions with the child alone, while valuable, sometimes left families feeling like they were missing a vital piece of the puzzle.

It was this realisation that sparked a significant shift in my approach.


I began to involve parents more deeply in the therapeutic process, recognising the profound impact they could have on their teen's journey to recovery.

What emerged from this shift was nothing short of extraordinary. I discovered that many parents, with the best of intentions, were employing conventional parenting techniques—strategies that, though well-meaning, often proved ineffective in addressing teen anxiety.

 

The missing link was clear: parents needed to be equipped with informed strategies, insights, and a deeper understanding of how anxiety truly works.

 

And so, Anxiety Allies was born—a comprehensive programme that empowers parents with the essential tools, knowledge, and skills they need to become effective anxiety allies for their teens. It's a framework that not only bridges the gap in traditional approaches but also paves the way for transformation, resilience, and well-being.

If your with me, now's the time to get excited because it's about to be ALL yours.

ANXIETY ALLIES IS A GREAT MATCH FOR YOU IF ....

You are a parent of a child aged 12-18 years (if you teen is older please get in touch to discuss suitability)

You have observed your child struggling to do things such as going to school, enjoying time with family and friends and doing hobbies and activities.

Before problems related to anxiety came along, you would say you had a good relationship with your child.

You believe parents have a key role to play in the lives of teenagers.

You are looking for a way to connect with your teen around their anxiety challenge and are open to learning different ways you can support them. Your wish is to help them to get back to doing things that are important to them (e.g  school, spend time with family and friends and enjoy other activities). 

You believe all humans deserve to be treated equally and agree to be a part of our inclusive community where everyone is respected

You are committed and willing to learn about and then take the time and action to help your teen practice the skills needed to tackle anxiety. 

This isn't the programme for you if

You do not consider, as a parent, you have a vital role to play in your teen's recovery from anxiety. 

Your teen has experienced significant trauma in their lives such as emotional, physical or sexual abuse, recent or traumatic separation of parents. The content of the programme is suitable for young people with these needs but they are likely to have additional support needs which are beyond the scope of the programme and so I recommend young people with these experiences access CAMHS to receive support to process and overcome these concerns. 

Your teen has significant mental health challenges including disordered eating, self-harming, drugs or alcohol misuse. The content of the programme is suitable for young people with these needs but they are likely to have additional support needs which are beyond the scope of the programme and so I recommend accessing a Children's Mental Health Service (CAMHS) so that issues of risk can be appropriately assessed and managed.  

You are looking for direct support for your teen, rather than for yourself as a parent. 

Your teen has a diagnosis of a neurodevelopmental disorder such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or an Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The content of the programme is suitable for young people with these needs but they are likely to have additional support needs which are beyond the scope of the programme. If you do have support from elsewhere, this programme may well be a good addition. Please contact me for advise on whether this will be a good fit for you at beck@drbeck.co.uk

Your teen's anxiety appears specifically related to the loss of a significant person (grief). Teens who are grieving are likely to benefit from direct input specifically targeted towards this issue.

I'VE GOT A'S FOR YOUR Q'S

FAQs: 

What kind of anxiety problems does the programme help with? 

It is an approach that will work with a wide range of anxiety problems because it is based on tackling the underlying cause of the problem – your teen's cycle of anxiety using a process that is proven to work.

 

We work together to develop a specific plan for your teen's recovery from their anxiety. I have included an anxiety assessment in the programme so we can get to the bottom of your teen's specific problem.

So whether you teen has a phobia, general anxiety disorder, panic disorder, obsessional and compulsive disorder, health anxiety, social anxiety or separation anxiety - this programme is developed to help. It all starts with understanding your teen's specific problems and this happens in the parenting and perceive phases.

My child won't talk to me about their anxiety, should I still join?

 

Absolutely.

 

One of the FIRST things you will do is learn how to approach your teen to have conversations about anxiety and build a positive connection. You learn how to form a team with your teen to support them through their recovery from anxiety. 

My child's anxiety mainly effects school. Is there any point me joining as what can I do as a parent? 

Absolutely, there's a lot you can do to support your anxious teen even if it is all about school. Your influence as a parent is profound, and it can make all the difference to their outcome.

 

Through the programme you will learn how to have conversations about the anxiety to gain a deeper understanding, how communicate and advocate for your teen with school to develop an intervention plan that has an increased chance of succeeding as it will be aligned with your teens goals and wishes. 

My child is already receiving input, can I do the programme alongside this? 

Yes. This programme will help you as a parent support your teen at home. This is often the missing element in individual support and will allow you to complement this input at home. 

What if my child refuses help and support, is there any point joining?  

Yes, this is not a programme for young people and so they do not need to take part directly.

 

The first phase of the programme will teach you how to re-connect with your teen, bring them on side and form a team. This is the foundation of the programme and I will support you to make this happen before you move onto the next phase to start addressing the anxiety problems themselves.

What kind of time commitment is needed to get results from the programme?


You complete the programme at your own pace - you have lifetime access. To complete the programme within eight weeks, I recommend allocating two hours to absorb the course content and take part in the coaching sessions. 

The investment is then putting the learning into practice as part of a regaining your rewarding relationship with your teen as a foundation to support them on their journey. Therefore, you do need to be prepared to invest time to connect with your teen and persevere with this until you form a team together.

My child has been struggling for quite some time. Does this mean it has gone on for too long to benefit from parent support? 

No, the programme is developed to help with mild to moderate anxiety no matter how long it has been around.

 

The severity of type of anxiety is assessed as part of programme, and so we will develop a good understanding of your teen's struggles before mapping out goals and moving towards these.  

My child seems to have some depression alongside anxiety, it is okay for me to take part in the programme.

Yes, it is quite common for teens with anxiety problems to have difficulty with low mood. This tends to come from the fact they do less and less and feel  worse and worse about themselves. As you work through the programme you will enable your teen to identify goals that are important to them and you will support them to start moving towards these. In my experience, the low mood starts to lift as young people start to do more and develop their confidence to do even more. 

What if I find out that my child is presenting with risky behaviours as we go through the programme?

The programme is not designed to be able to manage issues of risk for someone who is presenting with self-harming behaviour, eating disorders or drug or alcohol misuse. If you become aware of these issues during the course of the programme, it will be necessary for you to contact your GP to access the appropriate level of support. I will be available for you to consider additional options for support. 

Can me and my partner both take part? 

Yes. When you join, you will received one log in per family but you can both use this to log in and access the course materials.

 

It can be helpful if all adults have an appreciation for the approach being taken to recover from anxiety. 

In case you're wondering, here's how Anxious Allies stacks up against other support that's available out there..

Typical support offered to teen and parents for anxiety

(e.g. via CAMHS, school or individual counsellors)

Support targeted towards the young person. May not routinely include support for parents

If parents are included, support tends to be limited sharing particular strategies

Support available at particular appointment times only

Cannot be accessed by young people who do not agree to take part, who refuse help. 

If anxiety difficulties return in the future, as a parent you are left to consider a referral to for your child. 

 

Can prove difficult as a parent to directly access advice from the provider of the support as and when required

Can feel isolated as a parent as there is no community provision for parents. It is hard to talk to family and friends if they don't understand

Tends to include one particular approach at a time e.g. CBT
