- If your teen has low self-esteem, suffers from not having friends at school, hangs around with the wrong peers, or is not having the ideal parent-teen dynamic through home communication, it’s a great time to reach out.
- If you’d like your teen to learn more skills for life – and to be more independent – we also teach financial mindset, body image, dating, self-respect, negotiation and more.
- Our approach is a combination of hands-on activities, group discussions/explorations, informative videos and teaching. We use over a decade of proven solutions and methodologies. Teens have said that they like how interactive the sessions are and that they feel like they are participating at an equal level, where they can really share themselves, which is something they shy away from in a school/teacher environment.
Although results will vary depending on the teen, here are some results that other families have appreciated and experienced:
- Increased teen self-esteem
- Improved grades
- Reduced anxiety and overwhelmIncreased motivation
- Increased motivationMore skillful at thinking through the consequences of teen’s actions
- More skillful at thinking through the consequences of teen’s actions
- Increased executive functioning skills (planning, organization, time
- Better communicators
- It is very common that therapy is usually 1:1. In our program, we have workshops with groups of teens, who can discuss real life issues that they’re all going through at the same time and support each other
- In addition, therapy is often an exploration into the past, whereas coaching is about dealing with the now and moving you forward.
- Coaching is a great supplement to Therapy
- A Mentor can often be a role model to a teen, however, this is different than having someone who is an expert on teen challenges and can teach teens the skills they need to succeed in school and life, while transforming their paradigm about the world and self-confidence in the process.
- A Coach is especially someone to seek out during any transition period such as going into middle school, high school or college. However, seeking out a coach for personal transitions – such as a divorce, a death in the family, new expectations about responsibility -- can be as important as academic transitions
- Working with a Coach is transformative in terms of changing and growing, and also teaches you the skills to be diplomatically confident and say it in a way it can be received.
- 1:1 is both in-person and remote through video conference or skype
- Group Workshops can be done either in-person or online, and there’s an option to have Kimberly travel to a teen group in an area near you
- Our year-long teen coaching program consists of both 1:1s with your teen and interaction with a global online community of teens
It depends on what level they would like to participate at. They can either choose to participate in 1:1 sessions with us, group workshops, and/or the year-long coaching program. To see what’s the best fit for your teen, I recommend that you schedule a 15 minute consult with me: (831) 239-2788
Yes, the program does work with teens with anxiety and depression. However, if your teen is an immediate risk to themselves or others, we recommend that they get support from a therapist and can then, simultaneously do the program.
Here’s what you can tell your teen to expect:
- An atmosphere of compassion, respect, and confidentiality, where they can be fully self-expressed. With that said, if teens express the need to harm themselves or others, parents will be immediately informed.
- Fun and new friendships
- Practical life skills and knowledge, which can be used to get future jobs and/or to improve school results
- Special guest presentations about such topics as health, body image, money management and more
- Powerful quizzes: Learn more about teen’s unique values, passion and personality
- Walking away a deeper understanding of themselves and how to succeed in what’s most important to them!
- Teens will walk away from every workshop with tools and transferrable life skills they can immediately apply, as well as a new perspective on how to better communicate with their family, friends and the world at large. And we’re committed to giving parents a verbal progress report, so parents can make sure the learning is transferred into real life.
- In terms of setting realistic expectations about growing self-esteem, resiliency and accountability, it usually takes at least 3 months to see results, because it’s not just about learning the new skills, it’s about making them a habit in their daily lives.
- To see the most significant and long-lasting results, we recommend that you consider having your teen participate in our year-round coaching program.
