Online Anxiety Program

The Get a GRIP on Anxiety Program is a revolutionary online program that teaches children how to manage their anxiety by developing the skills and coping strategies to improve the quality of their lives. The program is recommended for children aged 8-12 years. Get a GRIP can be completed in your own home, at your own pace and at a convenient time for your family.

Knowledge is power and kids can do amazing things with the right information! The Get a GRIP on Anxiety program empowers kids (and parents!) with the knowledge and skills to improve their mental health and wellbeing. 


The word GRIP is an acronym. This acronym will help your child to remember 4 really important steps when it comes to managing their anxiety. 

There are four modules of pre-recorded video lessons with Guidance Counsellor Michele Lund teaching the skills, knowledge and strategies to help your child manage their anxiety and live their best life.  Learning is reinforced with a digital copy of the journal 'Get a GRIP on Anxiety: A Journal for Kids', designed to involve parents/caregivers in the learning process.  Parent overviews and activities, included in each module, are designed to teach parents new ways of responding to their child's anxious behaviour.

Get a GRIP on Anxiety is based on evidence-based principles of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT). It is now well established that CBT is the most effective method for overcoming anxiety in children and teenagers.

Mental health is established early in life.

  • According to Beyond Blue half of all the mental health conditions  experienced throughout a person's life will have started by age 14.

  • Over 75% of mental health problems occur before the age of 25.

  • Suicide continues to be the biggest killer of young Australians.

As a parent, you play a vital role in your child’s emotional development and nurturing their mental health and wellbeing.  Experiences during childhood shape the adults we become and children who have a healthy mind in childhood will often carry it with them throughout life.  With half of all mental health conditions in adulthood beginning before the age of 14, the time to act is during childhood. 


By enrolling your child in the Get a GRIP on Anxiety Program you are making a positive step in the right direction in protecting your child’s mental health and wellbeing.

Anxiety disorders are one of the most common mental health problems experienced by young people today.

What parents are saying...

''Anxiety was robbing my child of joy. It was affecting every area of her life.  We came across the Get a GRIP on Anxiety Program and it has changed my daughter's life (and mine!).  I can't recommend this program enough!  She loved the online video lessons with Michele as well as working through her journal with me.  She now feels empowered and I can see a huge difference in her thinking patterns. We worked through the program at a steady pace even though my daughter was asking about it everyday! We love that we have access to the program when it suits our family. We can't thank you enough for giving joy back to my daughter!''
