Consulting/Mentoring - For Children or Teens

For Children or Teens

 Adolescents today are faced with a barrage of extraordinary, every day stressors, that we recognize as hectic academic schedules, extra-curricular activities, household responsibilities, sometimes difficult emotional complications and thanks to technological advances; demanding and tricky social lives. Life can become overwhelming. Lack of confidence, perfectionism, anxiety, social awkwardness, divorce, and individualism all have a way of wreaking havoc on a smooth adolescence. When parents find themselves unable to break through difficult adolescent barriers, coaching can sometimes help where other methods haven't.  Coaching sessions differ from traditional 'therapy' sessions. Coaching teaches and encourages kids to develop positive life skills by learning to appreciate their individual and unique assets through a series of age appropriate techniques and a developing a unique trust relationship with the coach. In addition, coaching offers the opportunity for new perspectives to be adopted in the place of inhibiting beliefs that threaten to create problems.  Coaching offers opportunities to develop an understanding of:
  • the roles we play in our own issues 

  • personal accountability

  • trusting in our own instincts

  • solid decision making skills

  • the importance of building a strong character

The result is a confident child at home, school and in the world and is eventually able to coach themselves through life! When necessary, Lisa applies a 'whole system healing' approach to the process which includes those closest to the child.  She believes 'healing the unit heals the child'.
