Perfectionism and Anxiety

Friday, March 3rd; 12 - 1:30 pm

Austin, Texas

High achieving. Striving to be better. Hard on herself. Does that sound like your daughter? The push for perfection is stronger than it’s ever been, from the drive to be flawless in school, on the field, or in relationships with peers and adults to their carefully curated online lives.

38% of teen girls have an anxiety disorder.

Living in a state of perfectionism – the need to strive, perform, and achieve – doesn’t feel good. It can lead to increased feelings of sadness, loneliness, anxiety and depression, and chronic fear of embarrassment or being overly cautious. This notion of wanting to be perfect can come from our girls’ self-talk or can come from perceived expectations of others. Our girls are not immune from this…not by a long shot.

What we will cover: 

  • What is causing the rise in stress and anxiety in our teen girls?
  • What is driving perfectionism in our girls?
  • What are the consequences of chronic anxiety and perfectionism?
  • Strategies to reduce her need to be perfect
  • Specific effective tactics to manage and lessen her anxiety
  • How to bring more ease and joy into her life

Who is this for?

This workshop is for parents that are worried about their daughters’ anxiety levels and their consistent stress and worry. It is for parents that want to:

  • Help their girls struggle less with the demands placed on them (both internal and external)
  • Learn tools to help their daughters navigate the expectations of their lives
  • Aid their daughters in finding more inner peace and self-compassion

 Workshop Details:

We’ll meet in a location in south central Austin (near Zilker Park) from 12:00 - 1:30 pm on Friday, March 3rd.

Bring a water bottle, a journal and a pen. Please feel free to bring your lunch.
