Author Alicia Eaton is a Wellness Expert who
specialises in Behavioural Change and Emotional Wellbeing.  She’s run a successful practice in London’s
Harley Street for over 14 years and has become widely recognised for her work
in helping children overcome problems, including anxiety, confidence,
bedwetting and eating issues.

She’s the author of best-selling books ‘Stop
Bedwetting in 7 Days’, ‘Words that Work: How to Get Kids to Do Almost Anything’
and ‘Fix Your Life with NLP’.

 In this book she uses all her skills and
knowledge to come up with fast and immediate solutions for helping children
overcome feelings of worry and anxiety. Whilst feeling anxious is a natural reaction to stressful
situations, left unchecked these feelings can interfere with a young child’s
daily routines, healthy development and academic progress.  They can even leave scars for life.

Currently, children suffering from anxiety
related issues are referred to CAMHS (Child & Adolescent Mental Health
Services) for which there is often a waiting list of several months.  In Alicia’s experience, delays in treating
symptoms of anxiety result in habitual thinking patterns which then become
harder to treat.  This new “First Aid Kit” will enable parents to
dispense the right kind of help as and when it’s needed.

I dedicate this book to the memory of my father Andrzej Olson (1930–2018) who showed us that it’s possible to go through the worst of times and turn them into the best.
I’ve had the good fortune to meet and be trained by some of the wisest people on the planet and I thank them for sharing their wisdom and ideas. Because of them, I’ve been able to develop my practice and create programmes that have helped so many children overcome their problems and difficulties more easily. Paul McKenna is at the top of that list for ‘changing my life’ so I could go on to do the same for so many others; followed by Richard Bandler, co-creator of NLP; Michael Neill for his ‘inside-out’ thinking; Dr Roger Callahan for his creation of TFT (Thought Field Therapy); Dr Ronald Ruden and his brother Dr Steven Ruden for Havening Techniques; Olive Hickmott for her work with mental imagery in education; Dr Tom Barber and Dr Sandra Westland for teaching me about psychotherapy and hypnosis and also, the work of Dr Maria Montessori which continues to influence me greatly.
And thank you too, to the many friends and colleagues with whom it’s always a pleasure to discuss ideas – I learn something new from every conversation however fleeting, in particular Toni McGuinness, Michele Paradise and Dr Stephen Simpson.
I thank too: Alison Jones of Practical Inspiration Publishing for her patience as I chopped and changed things around a thousand times, Liz Carrington for her artistic guidance and Emily Calnan for her book cover design.
Last but by no means least, the three shining lights in my life: George, Thomas and Clementine.
