About Us


Anxiety and Stress can come about in children for a whole host of different reasons.

  • Generalised Anxiety Disorder
  • Depression
  • Seperation Anxiety
  • Bullying (either at school, or outside of school).
  • Low self-esteem
  • Low self-confidence
  • etc.

Each of these has it’s own range of symptoms and each requires a different approach to find the best solution.

That’s why Teen Anxiety UK exists! There’s a whole host of problems and issues that arise from the various forms of child anxiety. Our mission is two fold……

  1. To help you to understand the causes and symptoms of anxiety causing problems.
  2. To give you the tools and information, so you can help your young one with the guidance and support they need.

The helpful information we’ll provide here is from years of clinical research and scientific study, as well as personal experience. If we think it’s helpful, we may even provide anecdotal information, although we’ll always make this clear.

Within these pages you’ll find articles, guides, worksheets, tips and tricks, scientific best practice and more. Plus, recommended reading and a list of helpful websites and support groups.

If you’ve come across some helpful information, or you have a recommendation to make to others, please let me know using this page.

A Conversation is always better than lecturing. So I’d love to hear from you if you’re struggling at the moment and you think I can help.

Alternatively, I’m always excited to hear about how you’re succeeding in spite of the constant battles. Also,I’m always willing to listen if you have a story that you’d like to share, or if you have an insight that can help other people.

About Us

If you have anything you’d like to share, you can contact me using this page. and we’ll have a chat, all be it by email.

Oooh! before I forget, I would just like to add a quick point regarding comments on this site… Some of the posts include my opinion on things. If your opinion’s differ, I encourage you to give yours in the comments.

However, whilst a difference of opinion is welcomed, this is a place of community and safety for those helping people with anxiety issues. ‘snarky’ comments, or ‘flaming’ of another commenter isn’t healthy, or necessary.

Please try to make your comments friendly and helpful. No one knows everything and everything is an opinion. I’m always willing to learn and I’m quite happy to be educated by my readers 🙂

If you’re not comfortable commenting openly, I can be contacted directly by emailing steve@teenanxiety.uk. I check this email daily.

If there’s anything I can help with, please let me know.
