"In Starving the Anxiety Gremlin for Children Aged 5-9, Kate Collins-Donnelly offers children, parents and professionals working with children the strategies they need to develop an understanding of anxiety and how to effectively manage it. The fun activities help readers to apply the learning to themselves and to practice proactive thinking to strengthen self-belief. I have delved into this accessible workbook with my own children and used its techniques with children that I work with. It has not only had a positive impact on them but also on me! As with Kate's other books, this is a workbook to go back to again and again to revisit concepts and to remind children that they can choose to see the world differently and that we can too!"
