So helpful

As a parent of an anxious child I was very happy to find this podcast. Dr. Plimpton is so good at explaining in simple words and concise manner different ways we can help our kid. We’ve been to group therapy which was extremely helpful, but having this podcast is an amazing tool for us. It reminds us a bit of what we worked on therapy and explains a little more. The interviews with experts are very interesting; his comments and questions are spot on. Thank you Dr. Plimpton.

Extremely helpful

I take my child to Dr Plimpton regularly and find his help to be excellent. This podcast is filled with helpful and practical advice. Dr Plimpton has vast knowledge that is (importantly) based in sound empirical science, and he also has a knack for both explaining and demonstrating things in a very accessible and pragmatically helpful way. This podcast gives great advice that I have been able to use immediately. And, as a parent, I listen to this podcast as a reminder of the approaches I should bring to my child and her anxiety.

One of a kind

Dr Plimpton has first hand experience with anxiety in children. He is a calm, caring person, and he is an expert in all areas of anxiety His nature is gentle and very personable which is extremely helpful for you and your child to feel you have someone that truly understands all of the numerous feelings that come along with raising children with anxiety. Dr Plimpton is worth traveling a distance for if you have a child with selective mutism or social phobia. He takes a hands on approach and has more that just textbook knowledge. Your child will like him and warm up to him quickly
