Coping with anxiety
Do you have anxious children? Are you an anxious parent? Simple calming techniques can do wonders for a situation, but you need to have some in your arsenal before you need them! For the latest episode of the Parenting Bytes Podcast we brought in a guest, Stephanie Dalfonzo, who has helped many kids and adults find ways to calm themselves in stressful situations, and she’s sharing her best tips with us!
Stephanie Dalfonzo is an Integrative Hypnotist, Coach, Speaker, and Author of “Goodbye Anxiety, Hello Freedom: How to Build Resilience and Overcome Anxiety.” She helps women uncover and heal the things from their past that have been keeping them stuck, freeing them to live the life of their dreams.
Her first career was as Celebrity Radio DJ “Stevie Knox.” After pausing her career to stay home with her children, she discovered she had struggled with anxiety her entire life and didn’t know it. She began researching holistic and natural approaches to learn emotional resilience to overcome anxiety for herself, and then opened and operated a successful Hypnosis practice for ten years. She closed that so she could work virtually (around the globe or around the corner).
Over the past 20 plus years, Stephanie has helped thousands from tweens to 82 say “Hello Freedom.”
