fusion: understanding & managing anxiety

4-week Online Course Starts 14 November '23

Anxiety is an epidemic that’s crippling our society at an alarming rate and across the globe. This results in families becoming disconnected and disempowered, leaving all of us helpless and unequipped with the right tools to effectively manage our anxiety.


If you are...

... struggling with anxiety, the impact of the pandemic and the resulting trauma has had devastating impacts on the mental health of our world. Rates of anxiety and depression have escalated in all age groups. This has been mostly evident in our children and teens from the youngest ages. 

As disempowering as anxiety can be, it IS possible to move from fear to freedom. This 4-week live course promises to be filled-to-the-brim with invaluable parenting advice, how to handle sensitive situations and how to move through complex emotions you, your children or students may experience.

Meet your expert

hi there,

I'm Naomi Holdt

Wife and mother of two young children. I am a psychologist, author and speaker with over 20 years of experience in education, educational psychology and psychotherapy with a special interest in the emotional well-being of children and young adults.


With an initial teaching background, I've gained insightful knowledge of the role of both parents and teachers in supporting, nurturing and helping young people reach their potential.


I graduated cum laude with an MA in Educational Psychology from the University of KwaZulu-Natal and run my private practice in Hilton, South Africa.

I've spoken countrywide and my online parenting courses have now reached an international following.

Your investment...

"Thank you, it has been hugely enlightening and jam-packed with information!"

Blake, Parent

CAN I Overcome Anxiety?

Childhood trauma creates the perfect foundation for anxiety. This was me.


Although I didn’t grow up ever having a word to describe what was causing the constant state of hyperarousal, the jitteriness, the nervous system dysregulation and all the rest of the symptoms that are as clear as daylight to me as a psychologist now, I knew I grew up feeling like I was constantly walking on eggshells and living waiting for the axe to fall.


I had plenty of challenges along the way: I struggled with through-the-roof performance anxiety, I was never able to reach my potential due to being in a constant state of fear, I suffered from stomach ulcers, a weak immune system and lived in fear.


The list is endless (as well as soul-destroying!). I was plagued for decades with the voice of that harsh inner critic that results in severe cognitive distortions and is so often a significant part of anxiety.


No one gave me a word for what I was experiencing. I felt like no one understood it.


That was utterly disempowering.


And then… I began my journey of healing, of understanding, of uncovering the WHY’s and the roots of my anxiety. When we know our WHY’s, it’s so much easier to find our WAY. This is exactly what I did, and it’s the journey I take my patients of all ages on. The awesome thing about the neuroplasticity of the brain is that we can CHANGE old wiring.


My journey has been liberating and unbelievably freeing, and this is what I will teach you in this four-week course. We’ll go on a journey of understanding, recognising, and changing neurological wiring. It's powerful!


I will also guide you on embracing a  lifestyle that supports healthy mental health, teach you how to question cognitive distortions and habits and uncover the reasons we self-sabotage. We’ll look at trauma and anxiety, anger and anxiety, depression and anxiety and so much more.


This has proven to be an invaluable four-week course, and I can’t wait to share it with you. You’ll also get all the inside info on how I manage my anxiety, and how I guide my children and patients with power-packed tools.


When I look back on my childhood, I wish that someone had seen me… given me the tools… that someone had helped me understand myself… YOU can do this for yourself and the kids and teens in your care.


This course will empower you on your journey with anxiety, and enable you to support and understand your children and teens too.


The results have been incredible, and I can’t wait to share them with you!

"Healing takes courage, and we all have courage, even if we have to dig a little deep to find it"
