Service Description

We offer a 10 week programme for parents to explore how to be the therapist at home for anxious children. Timid to Tiger offers a supportive and non judgemental space with a small number of other parents and a CBT therapist to support and guide parents to help their chid become more confident, resilient and improve their self esteem. Our approach combines evidence based parenting strategies (social learning theory) and CBT strategies. We use Cognitive Behavioural strategies to help parents: - Understand the relationship between thoughts, feelings and behaviours. - Support parents to help children think confident thoughts. - Understand the biological underpinnings of anxiety/anger. - Reduce unhelpful cycles and learn practical strategies to manage children’s worry. We also use parenting strategies based in social learning theory to: - Foster a positive attachment relationship by investing in play to rebuild strained parent-child relationships. - Support positive attention, praise and small rewards to encourage their children’s positive behaviours. - Support parents to set limits, consequences, ignore and punishments/time out as strategies. - Support parents to develop tools and confidence in managing those more difficult and challenging behaviours. Please get in contact with us to book onto our next 10 week programme
