Anxious Child Program

Two Kids Together

Anxious Child?

There is a solution

There’s nothing quite as heartbreaking as seeing your child in pain. The kind of pain you can’t simply put a bandaid on and make go away.

It’s debilitating. Not just for your anxious child, but for your whole family.

We mums tend to take on the idea that we’re doing something wrong. It must be our parenting. It doesn’t help that mental health professionals, teachers, even well-meaning friends, often leave us feeling this way.

We start to doubt ourselves. We question our intuition.

It’s not your parenting and

It’s not your child’s personality

“I knew something wasn’t quite right with my teenage son. He was irritable all the time, slept a lot, and would isolate himself in his room.

Dr Nat and Leigh gave me insight into what was happening from a physical point of view. I’d never even considered that. When we started implementing the changes Dr Nat and Leigh recommended, the complete about-face in his behaviour was profound. It’s like he’s a different kid altogether. Instead of locking himself away in his room, he now hangs out in the kitchen and loves to chat!

Having Dr Nat and Leigh’s support made the lifestyle transition easy. Seeing the results made it so worthwhile. It’s changed our whole family. We all feel so much better.”

- Cass Fisher, Aromatherapist

About the Love Your Anxious Child Program

Evidence-based research has uncovered the dynamic connection between anxiety, and chronic brain, body and gut inflammation. In simple terms, when inflammation is reduced in the brain, body and gut, chronic anxiety is reduced.

Not only that, there’s mounting evidence to support the vital role a mother’s intuition plays in the successful treatment of her child.

This program will provide you with in-depth, evidence-based information about the causes and effects of anxiety, as well as the simple, common-sense action steps you can take to support and heal your anxious child.

The connection I now have with my son is incredible...

“Having to drag my distressed son from the car to school was heartbreaking. I’d drive home in tears. His school work suffered because he was so anxious about getting anything wrong. Regular meltdowns at home had the whole family constantly walking on eggshells. It was exhausting and so very sad.

When we started working with Dr Nat and Leigh, we found the biggest challenge was the dietary changes. But with their support and guidance we persevered. We’re so glad we did.

Our son no longer suffers from anxiety. He used to be so shy. We thought that was just his personality. Now he loves meeting new kids and is so social.

I feel like I’m getting to know who my son really is for the first time. He’s calmer. I’m calmer. The connection I now have with him is just incredible.”

Love Your Anxious Child Program FAQ's

The majority of children we see through our clinic and our program are complex little beings with one or more additional diagnosis to anxiety. But the most difficult to deal with for their mums is the anxiety because it's what causes the most distress for mum and child.

When we look at a child we see beyond their diagnosis and we treat the child as a whole. This is what we teach in our online program. To discover the real cause of the anxiety instead of what the current medical model sees which is just the symptoms.

From angry and confused to calm and centred...

"Dr Nat and Leigh changed Harvey's life! He went from being an angry and confused little boy to being so much happier and calmer in himself. Working with Nat and Leigh on this journey was amazing. They are so kind, understanding and passionate about healing our children from the inside." - Carmen Payne

"Felt like I was no longer alone"

Lisa talks about the Love Your Anxious Child Program experience and how it has helped her with her two anxious children

"The brain map gave me clear steps to take"

Shay talks to Leigh about what she enjoyed about the program and how it has positively impacted her child and family

It's comprehensive but not overwhelming...

“ I’ve become a bit obsessed with the course. I’m finding everything so enlightening and starting to feel like I DO have the power to change our lives.

My drive to do this course was to find a way of helping my son now, so he doesn’t have to fear his daily life. It breaks my heart to see him go through such paralysing fear all the time. This course is showing me how to do that.

How to take control and give him the very best support. Everything I’ve learnt makes so much sense. It’s comprehensive but not overwhelming. It's positive in a way that makes me feel like I can change things, but I think you’ve both done a great job at managing a mother’s expectations too.

I know that there is no quick fix for our issues, no one answer, diagnoses or medical modality. It’s holistic, realistic and nurturing. It came at just the right time for me, when I was struggling with my confidence as a parent, feeling judged, overwhelmed and alone. I feel like I’ve been given a big virtual hug.”

- Kristen Walker

The Love Your Anxious Child program shows you how you can

I would hate to think what life for Cooper would be like without Dr Nat and Leigh...

"I came to Dr Nat and Leigh in early 2013 with my son Cooper who was 3 years old.  At that stage I could only have described our life as absolute chaos.  I had been to numerous doctors, OT’s, osteopaths, paediatricians and done so much internet research and still had no answers as to what was going on. I felt like I had lost my beautiful little boy and had no idea why. Life was completely out of control.  At that point in time I was absolutely convinced that Cooper would need to be home schooled, there was no way he was going to be able to attend school due to his behaviour and anxiety.

After the diagnosis of Sensory Processing Disorder and an intensive 8 week program including visits to the centre and work to do at home, our lives did a complete 180 degree turn.  Some of the issues we were dealing with at home completely disappeared during this time.  Cooper started kindy the following year and we have maintained regular visits with the staff since 2013.

Dr Nat and Leigh provided assistance to us in so many ways.  It’s not just the physical therapy they provide Cooper that has helped our family.  It’s the education and knowledge they provide me that gives me to ability to support Cooper at home.  They’ve given me an understanding of Cooper’s diagnosis, and what it means for him along with the tools to help him. Knowing I can pick up the phone or email at any time to ask questions is very reassuring.  I never feel alone or like I don’t know where to go when things aren’t going well.

Dr Nat and Leigh have quite literally changed our lives.  They are always available to help whenever it’s needed and have absolutely gone above and beyond to provide assistance to myself and Cooper. I honestly would hate to think what life for Cooper would be like if we hadn’t found them."
