Is this separation anxiety?

I recently returned from a 4 day work related trip, two dds were looked after by DH while I was away. Now my older DD (6 year old) is extremely anxious whenever she has to leave me, eg. tears when I leave her at school (which she likes), coming back downstairs cring, 30mins after being settled for the night, followed my 30 mins of tears before being re-settled. She's reluctant to go to clubs she enjoys, and just wants to stay at home with Mummy. It's been going on for only a week, but this is really out of character. I would really appreciate any advice (I thought this the best place to post, although its not strictly about education). I'm being patient and reassuring and not cross with her. She's also been saying she feels sick, but I think its anxiousness. What to do to help her? I have only been away once before a few months ago and all was fine that time.
