About The Youth Fairy St albans

Symptoms of anxiety, stress and low mood are not always easy to explain and can present with physical symptoms too such as tummy aches, headaches, feeling nauseous, repetitive behaviours such as muscle tensing/tics and sleep problems.

The Youth Fairy program works with children struggling with the symptoms and behaviours associated with anxiety, stress, anger, excessive negativity and low confidence. It’s designed to help them regain a greater level of emotional resilience, control and develop a much more optimistic, positive and confident outlook on life.

As well as helping them take positive steps towards their outcomes they will also learn how their brain works to create their specific concerns so they can understand why they have been feeling or behaving in these unhelpful ways. They will learn strategies to help them take back control in the first instance, and then be able use this knowledge and skills to better self-manage their emotions and behaviours more easily in the future.

Our Schools programme offers a number of options that support the mental health education and wellbeing of children and teachers.

Our SMILE for Parents programme is designed to help you regain a greater sense of emotional control and will support you in making those positive changes in thoughts and behaviours you need to feel calmer, happier and much more confident as a person – and as a parent.
