1 “in-person” session and 4 “ZOOM” sessions (Parents need only travel and have a babysitter for 1 night!) The ZOOM sessions are “live” and run as a discussion group.

Parents of 4- to 7-year-olds who are experiencing fears, can join for the parent sessions – phone the Triple P Co-Ordinator to discuss this option

The purpose of the programme is to support parents/carers to develop and implement their own “Parenting Plan” that reduces their child’s anxiety/fears.

Triple p Fear-less 

We talk in the parent/caregiver sessions about what anxiety/fears are, what might be causing them, and what they can do to manage them. 

The award winning Triple P Positive Parenting Programme has developed the Fear-Less programme to help parents reduce their child’s anxiety.

Parents/caregivers attend 1 in-person session (during school time or in the evening) and then attend via ZOOM for the other 4 sessions (2.5 hours a week for 4 weeks). The ZOOM sessions are “live” and run as a discussion group. More than one parent/caregiver parenting the same child can attend.
