Anxiety & Anger Management

Many children with autism spectrum conditions experience periods of severe anxiety in their lives.  Often children and young people find it difficult to understand and express their emotions in a positive way.

 

The PAST Anger /Anxiety Management programme has been written by Laura Kerbey with the needs of young people with autism spectrum conditions in mind.  Laura has a degree in Psychology, a Post Graduate Certificate in Autism, and  a  Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.  

 

The programme can be delivered at PAST Head Office, in the home or within schools and colleges to help you deliver the programme in house.  The programme can be delivered with individuals, but also works in groups where appropriate.

This programme is delivered by Laura Kerbey or Angela Kelly.

 

As all children and their needs differ so much there is no fixed time scale for this programme.  We work with individuals - not labels.
