I need urgent help

Claire and Adam's Story

"LOHA Systemic Therapy helped me pinpoint the specific concerns Adam had."

Claire was worried by her 10-year-old son Adam. Adam was due to go to from primary to secondary school this year, but he seemed very young still. Claire was concerned about how Adam was going to cope and how he would respond to the difference in school and its expectations of him.

Worried about what to say to Adam, Claire used LOHA’s Systemic Therapy activities to find out more about what was causing Adam’s anxiety – Adam was worried about a whole range of things, but the LOHA activities helped Adam explain them all.

This gave him a sense of control and significantly reduced his anxiety.

On hearing what was concerning Adam with problems which included fears about bullying and keeping up with school work , Claire could understand what she needed to do to help Adam more effectively. By teasing out the different concerns, Claire was able to talk through with Adam how he could deal with the different situations that were worrying him – this gave him a sense of control and significantly reduced his anxiety.

Adam even began looking forward to going to his new school.

LOHA provided me with activities that helped me understand Adam's anxieties much more. I assumed I knew what they were, it was about the change of school. But the LOHA activities helped me pinpoint the specific concerns Adam had and we were able to manage those directly which visibly reduced Adam's anxiety.
