\"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.\"

Hi! I'm Dr Natalie Challis

I became interested in children’s mental health when my son starting showing signs of anxiety. He was 4. Watching him struggle was the hardest and most distressing thing I’ve ever been through.

I remember the utter frustration of trying and failing, time and again, to get him the help he needed.

My gut told me it wasn’t his personality and I knew it had nothing to do with our parenting. Yet these were the reasons offered to me by multitudes of medical professionals.

Luckily I listened to my gut and successfully treated my child.

I’m now a neuro-psychotherapist who specialises in treating children with anxiety and other health concerns, mainly due to my personal experience.

What drives me? Mothers. I want to be an advocate for mothers experiencing the same distress and frustration I felt.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

Hi! I'm Leigh Shinde

My story began after having my first child.

My health went into a deep decline.  I was overcome with fatigue, chronic digestive issues, allergies, chronic sinus infections, and brain fog.

My life long love affair with processed food finally caught up with me.

I bounced from Doctor to Doctor looking for answers. They gave me blood and stool tests, colonoscopies, the works. Everything came back normal and they kept telling me I’m fine.

But I didn’t feel fine. I started to question whether Doctors were looking in all the right places.

My sister, Dr Nat, taught me that chronic illness was the result of inflammation. Two weeks after tweaking my diet, I began to see results.

I became so fascinated by the connection between nutrition, the environment, and illness.

I’ve since completed a post graduate in human nutrition and nutritional environmental medicine.

I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of seeing how powerful diet and natural supplementation are in the successful treatment of children who suffer so much, from anxiety and relatable symptoms.

That’s what drives me.

Achieve real results

\"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.\"

Anxiety can be more than simply managed

Heal your anxious child and bring your family back to joy and wellbeing

\" 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. Its 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.\"
