PARENTS & CARERS
Together we can help your child's Wellbeing shine!
Time To Pull Up A Chair And Grab A Cuppa! (Mine's a Hot Chocolate)
Sometimes, in my work, it feels there's an enormous pressure to 'make our children wonderful'. The Worry Wizard is not about 'making' your child anything.
The Worry Wizard offers a soft landing place for parents and carers who want to learn more about Worries and Wellbeing. Together, in this gentle, fun and imaginative space, we nurture emotional connection between you and your child, enabling the move from Worries to Wellbeing.
Key to this is supporting the development of a shared language to explore Worries and Wellbeing. We hope you find much on these pages for you and your child; so pull up a chair, take a moment and have a read, together.

Time For A Story?
The Worry Wizard is packed with stories. Engaging with stories is a safe and familiar activity for children. It is easier to explore the thoughts, feelings and actions of a character in a story than it is to explore your own. Learning about others who face similar struggles to you and help themselves move to a more comfortable place, introduces the idea that things could get better for you just as it did for the character in the story.
We're Building A Magical, Supportive Community. We'd Love You To Join Us.
The Worry Wizard is right by your side to help you and your child gain a greater understanding of their emotional world so that, together, you can better support it.
