LEARN ABOUT HOW WE CAN HELP

The Anxiety Programmes

There are three different anxiety programmes offered: Cool Kids, Cool Little Kids, and Chilled for adolescents. All three are structured, skills-based programmes that are well recognised as extremely effective ways to help children and families suffering the effects of high levels of anxiety. Based on over 20 years of research, the programmes are used extensively throughout Australia and several other countries. Having seen the life-changing benefits of these programmes many times over, we are committed to making them accessible to as many anxious New Zealand children as possible. The team are highly experienced psychologists and educators who are accredited to deliver the range of Cool Kids programmes.
