Anxiety issues are among the most common mental, emotional and
behavioural problems that occur during childhood. Childhood stressors such as pain, injury, illness, the death of a loved one or recognition of parental stress (such as divorce or financial stress) can all be severe stressors for children. They can lead to the development of anxiety in children.

Underlying anxiety may express itself in many different ways with young children. These include general withdrawal, an inability to relax, unusual fears, sleep disturbances and nightmares, decreased appetite, crying, whining, sadness, anger and aggression.

Anxiety issues in early life can lead to problems as a child develops. Low self-esteem; impaired social interactions with other children; missed school days and an increased likelihood of not finishing school; alcohol or other drug use; problems adjusting to work life; and anxiety disorders in adulthood.

Assessments can help pinpoint how your child is reacting to stressors in daily life and appropriate interventions can be given.
