The Program

Your child will learn powerful life skills, such as learning how their mind shapes their world by learning about neural pathways, belief systems and comfort zones. They will also learn about self responsibility, respect, self-respect, peer pressure, decision making, self-esteem, goal setting, mistakes, fear, failure, change, and so much more! My coaching is based on Adventures in Wisdom™.

The program focuses on 27 powerful mindset skills that are described in detail below. Your child will have a customized package based on their individual needs.

This program uses stories to connect with kids. Stories are powerful. Stories stimulate multiple centers of the brain which leads to deeper thinking. Children connect with stories and their characters which make it easier for them to connect the skills to their own lives. Under my guidance, your child gets to practice and apply these new skills to their own situations.

The Experience

Private Coaching

A complimentary family session is the first step to discuss your child's individual needs. An individualized custom package will be created for your child based on assessments and discussion. As each package is customized, the duration of our coaching relationship time varies. Each session is 60 minutes. These private coaching sessions are held online via Google Meet, unless otherwise arranged. My priority is to provide a safe space for your child to connect and to discuss their ups and downs while building critical life skills so they can be confident walking their own path.

Parents will be updated weekly on their child's progress and will be provided informational sheets and activities to help guide conversations to support your child. During our coaching relationship, parents will receive two complimentary 30-minute sessions to discuss their child's progress and challenges.

We will all work together as a team.

I would be proud and honored to conduct a group session to help support children in changing their mindsets. Supporting children's social-emotional needs are critical. Children often need support with self-confidence, self-esteem, standing up to peer pressure, making good decisions, building resilience, overcoming mistakes, fear, managing change and so much more. They're in need of a mentor and coach.

The program can be tailored to meet the needs of the group by focusing on a specific skill. For example, a group of children may be struggling with overcoming mistakes. A customized program will be created for this group.

Let's work together to build a stronger community.

What is life coaching for kids?

Life coaching for kids is all about empowering kids through mindset development. Kids learn how to use the power of their mind and the power of their thoughts to create happiness, confidence, and success in their lives, so that they can take their life, goals, and dreams wherever they want to go.

  • Coaching helps kids develop resilience skills. A life coach helps children learn how to manage life’s “curveballs” — whether it’s facing a big change or dealing with a major disappointment. Kids learn how to bounce back and pick themselves up, so they can “go for it” in life.
  • Coaching helps kids develop self-esteem from the “inside out”. This helps kids learn how to base their self-esteem on who they are, not on what they have achieved, who they know, or what they do.
  • Coaching helps kids learn to believe in themselves and build self-confidence. A life coach helps kids learn how to move through anxiety and fear, so they can stretch outside of their comfort zone, create courage, and go for their dreams with confidence.
  • Coaching helps kids develop their own “inner compass”. A life coach helps kids learn how to think for themselves and make good decisions, so they can stand up to peer pressure and be their own person.
  • Coaching helps kids learn to live life with intention versus drifting through life without direction. By learning self-leadership skills, kids develop an empowered way of thinking that will help them develop a vision for their lives.
  • Life coaching is about supporting our kids in living their best life! Just like a baseball coach helps kids develop skills, confidence, and ability to thrive in baseball; a certified WISDOM Coach helps kids develop the skills, confidence, and ability to thrive in life.

How is life coaching different from counseling?

“Although life coaching and counseling may have similarities, such as asking the important questions, listening, and finding patterns in people's lives, they are not the same thing.

Counseling is designed to help those with more serious issues lead a more normal, productive life or to get back on track – these types of issues might include anxiety, depression, or OCDs – moving past abuse or going through a personal crisis at home such as an illness or divorce.

Life Coaching is different. It is about helping people get from where they are to where they want to be. For most people that means reaching higher goals and creating greater success, creating more balance and happiness in their lives, and feeling more fulfilled in their lives and in their relationships – it’s about creating what they want.

In many ways counseling is about resolving or managing issues from the past, whereas life coaching is about creating the future and helping clients achieve the ultimate vision they have for their lives.”

My child doesn’t have a problem...is life coaching for him?

“Life coaching isn’t just for kids who are facing challenges or problems. Helping kids learn how to reach their fullest potential is about personal development and personal empowerment so that they will be ready to face any challenge that comes their way. The skills they learn can be used for the rest of their lives!”

What will my child learn?

“Through WISDOM Coaching, kids learn powerful mindset skills and success principals that are critical for creating happiness, confidence, and success in their lives – and the key is how they think about themselves and what is possible for their lives”.

Through WISDOM Coaching kids learn...

  • How to recognize and shift limiting beliefs that hurt self-esteem and hold them back in life. They also learn how to proactively create supportive belief that will support them in feeling good about themselves, believing in themselves, and in creating a happy fulfilling life.
  • Kids learn the values of self-leaders such as the power of taking full responsibility for their lives, the importance of living life with integrity, and the importance of treating others with respect while always treating themselves with respect as well.
  • Kids learn how to think for themselves and make decisions...which helps them develop their inner compass and learn how to stand up to peer pressure.
  • Kids learn how to feel good about themselves even when things don’t go their way so that their self-esteem is based on the inside-out and not based on who they know, what they do, or what they have.
  • Kids learn how to believe in themselves even after facing a disappointment so that they can move through their upset and their fear...to create courage and self-confidence.
  • Kids learn how to live life with intention and with direction, so they don’t drift through life.
  • Kids learn how to develop a mindset for creating success in their lives including learning
  • how to set and achieve their goals.
  • Kids learn how to manage change so that they can thrive in the new circumstances. These are skills that most programs geared for kids do not cover.
