Workshop for students with anxiety taking place this weekend

A workshop for parents of primary school children who suffer from anxiety is taking place this Saturday.

Dr. Julie Meehan, who is a clinical psychologist in the Sligo area, is running the workshop which is taking place from 10am to 5.15pm at the Beo Centre for Mindfulness and Integrative Health, Innisfree House, Co. Sligo.

Dr. Meehan says while feelings of anxiety and being overwhelmed are natural experiences, when they begin to take over, life can be very difficult.

The workshop is mainly aimed at parents of students who may have feelings of anxiety.

Dr. Meehan says it will aim to teach parents strategies to help their children.
