Taming Worry Dragons Kids Group is an effective way for your child to go from worried and withdrawn to:

  • Learning how to cope with anxiety and manage their worry
  • Develop the tools and strategies to battle worries no matter what form they take

I’m Anna Raworth, a Play Therapist, and Executive Director at Acorn Counselling. I am working with Ben to bring this fun and effective program to our community, so that kids and families can learn skills to manage anxiety.
