The tailored talks entitled “Stress and Anxiety in Challenging Times” were presented via Zoom and Stella, whose alma mater was Mount Sackville, provided thought provoking advice, interspersed with her gift for storytelling.

Stella O'Malley is a mental health professional, best-selling author, public speaker and a parent with many years’ experience working in counselling and psychotherapy.

According to Stella, anxiety is the most common mental health issue in Ireland today, and is often contagious and so can infect the whole family. Anxiety is often described as an over-estimation of the danger and an under-estimation of ones ability to cope.

“ Stella gave a wonderful, informative talk, and lots of super advice to us all, I could have listened to her wonderful advice all evening! “ Parent feedback
