Jennifer Roblin is an anxiety coach, who specifically works with teenagers and young adults.

After spending 30 years in the corporate world, Jennifer quit her job, realising her lifestyle wasn’t what she wanted for her and her family.  Jennifer joins Christina to talk about why she changed career and what drove her to work with young people. They also talk about what anxiety is, how it can manifest and how we can become aware of our own beliefs and behaviours and how this impacts others.


One of the main things Jennifer enjoyed in her corporate role was big teams of people; she now realises she was coaching these people.

Anxiety is evolutionary. The sole purpose of anxiety is to keep us safe; it’s looking for danger all the time.

The amount of information we as individuals have to deal with on a day-to-day basis in the modern world is astounding, and this can have a profound impact on our levels of anxiety.

Jennifer felt she could have the biggest impact coaching those under 25, changing their future but also having a positive impact on those around them including their parents. Jennifer also became more passionate about helping young people when her friends’ son took his own life at just 19.

There are different types of anxiety, including generalised anxiety disorder which impacts children on an everyday basis.

Parents can imprint their own anxieties onto children, leaving a long-lasting impression on them. Children learn these behaviours at an early age, and it becomes their identity and who they are.

There isn’t a one size fits all approach to coaching people through their anxiety, you have to figure out what motivates that person and what it is they want to achieve.

Many of the approaches that Jennifer uses are about individuals realising and recognising their behaviours and what they can do to take control and influence their lives.

Try and be more aware of the media you take in; for example with songs, ensure you listen to the lyrics. If we listen to negativity we take it on board.

Ask yourself how you are feeling and stop and truly think about what your answer is and the words you use.
