It is just as important for parents to be supported and have resources available to make them feel their best. I am always looking for great resources and Laurel’s program is spectacular. I always like options and part of dealing with anxiety is knowing that you have those tools in your toolbox. Here’s all you need to know about LMAO – Laughing my anxiety off.
Are you struggling with excessive worry, anxiety or anxious moments?
Do you need a supportive community in conjunction with or outside of traditional therapies?
Do you need a safe and friendly environment that connects you to others struggling with anxiety or worry?
Are you apprehensive about meeting groups of strangers IRL (in real life)?
Laurel Crossley, B. A. Child Studies, Life Coach, and Parent Educator, struggled with anxiety from early childhood into early adulthood when she finally “deleted” it from her life. She was desperate to locate a support group to talk and share her struggles with and couldn’t find any. LMAO was originally created to support children but SO many of her adult clients asked for a similar group and so, Laurel began LMAO for adults.
An addendum to “traditional therapies”, LMAO serves as an online support system for adults affected by worry or anxious thoughts.
Delivered via Skype, this 5-week support initiative meets once per week and discusses topics through the online chat and video components of Skype with Laurel acting as facilitator
During the initial week, Laurel involves participants in creating a format that supports the group – i.e. positive feedback – each week someone is elected to say wonderful and meaningful things about each other
Topics for discussion will be decided upon the first night of programming to ensure the content reflects the participants
