I would like to express my gratitude to Eric Langhjelm of VPG, for his passion to reduce anxiety in children and his generous support as a corporate sponsor for my campaign to promote the readership of my new children’s anxiety book, so that it will reach a wider audience and help decrease anxiety in young children.

 What mental health experts are saying about: Surfing the Worry Imp’s Wave

Stress is the #1 health epidemic of the 21st century and parents and children are feeling it! This valuable book provides playful, science-based strategies to combat the “Worry Imps” in our lives. Thank you Sharon for helping parents and professionals move the needle on the issue of our time.

~ Dr. Shimi Kang, Psychiatrist, #1 Best-Selling Author of The Dolphin Parent

Delightful! A lovely, engaging, beautifully illustrated children’s book based on the sound concepts and strategies of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Sharon also includes play and art activities to create more active learning. It’s the most in-depth and interactive children’s book on anxiety that I have seen. This is an excellent teaching tool for anxiety management.

~ Dr. Glen Davies, Psychologist and Director of The ABLE Developmental Clinic

Thank you Sharon for creating this book. I now understand why the children, I see in my office for anxiety, get better after attending your groups. Thank you for your work – you are making a great difference to anxious children and their families.”

~ Dr. Alena Ladki, Paediatrician

This book is simultaneously a rich, colourful story and an excellent resource for the many children who struggle with anxiety. The tools Sharon teaches are practical and invaluable, for any parent or professional, to learn how to help anxious children calm their bodies and feel safe in the world around them.

~ Nancy deVries, R.C.C., Child and Family Therapist
