Emily Hanlon from The Playful Psychologist is a child and adolescent psychologist with experience providing individual and group therapy for children, adolescents, and adults with a variety of difficulties including ASD, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), mood-related disorders, anxiety, poor social skills, and other behavioural concerns. 

In this podcast episode, Emily and I are discussing separation anxiety & difficulty separating and how this affects our children. We also chat about:

  • How separation anxiety can be a big challenge for families during back-to-school time, and the difference between separation anxiety and difficulty separating;
  • How can we prepare our kids for fewer separation difficulties as they start school or head back to school after the long summer break;
  • What parents can do during their morning routine to help their children feel more at ease;
  • Where we can turn to for support and help if we have a child who is experiencing separation anxiety;
  • Tips for Mums or Dads on coping with these challenges;
  • Plus Emily shares more about The Playful Psychologist and her online offerings.
