  2. Hello Deanna – thank you for putting together this user-friendly and informative program. I learned so much and thoroughly recommend it to other parents. I have learned about how to manage worrying about my daughter’s worrying and together we are much happier. Thank you.

  3. Hi Deanna,

    Thankyou so much for creating such an innovative and helpful program! It is obvious that you have worked tremendously hard and I think it can really help a lot of people, like it has helped me. As a teacher of highschool students ranging in ages from 11-18 years of age, I found so many aspects of this course helpful with endless strategies available that I could employ to help my students with worry and anxiety to make their lives easier. I would highly recommend this course as it is not only informative, but fun, engaging and oh so interesting! Even as an adult, I found that I was using little tips from the course to combat worry in my own life. Thank you so much!

  4. I am currently participating in OTTime Kids Therapy’s online course, “Emptying Your Worry Cup”.

    I have found this resource to be such great value, packed with educational content that is easily accessible and presented in a visually-appealing format.

    As a parent of a young boy with BIG emotions and an overflowing worry cup, it has been encouraging to find a resource that unpacks what my child is experiencing so I have greater understanding of what is happening for him and how to help. In Deanna’s gentle and fun presentations comes the reassurance that I am not alone in what can often feel an overwhelmingly difficult daily reality. Even more valuable, is the provision of tools to help us create our own Calm Plan and work towards feeling more in control of our emotions and less overwhelm every day.

    I feel this course is not only useful for helping our children with their worries, but also for healing our own anxiety. I recommend you check it out today!
