Anxiety Responses


Worksheet for children to think about their responses to anxiety including what their anxiety triggers are, how their body physically responds, what they think when they are anxious and what other emotions they feel during that time besides anxiety.


Why do you need this?

Writing down their responses to anxiety helps children become more aware of their emotions, triggers, and reactions. This self-awareness is essential for developing emotional intelligence and understanding how their thoughts and feelings influence their behaviour. These insights empower children with the tools and skills necessary to effectively manage their anxiety and navigate challenging emotions.


How and when might you use this?

This worksheet could be used in a variety of ways:

· In PSHE lessons that focus on understanding and managing their emotions.

· Following an incident of intense social anxiety as a tool for self-reflection.

· During counselling sessions to support students in developing coping strategies for managing anxiety.

· As 1:1 support for a child struggling with social anxiety.

· This worksheet could be used proactively with students as a preventative measure to promote self-awareness and emotional regulation.


What’s included?

This worksheet includes 4 sections in which children can either write or draw their answers under the titles ‘trigger’, ‘my body’, ‘my thoughts’ and ‘my emotions’.
