Wellbeing & resilience support coaching.
Resilience is an important skill for navigating life's ups and downs, which would be beneficial to enhance in young people, as there are concerns that resilience in young Australians is in decline (Orygen, 2017).
Belinda Tilley from I-Myself can provide (non clinical) wellbeing & resilience coaching support and encouragement to your young person. Not all young people have adequate ability to bounce-back.
With anxiety issues, self harm and suicide rates on the increase young people need support from a trusted voice. (These services are not clinical or medical services & should not be considered as such.)
If you child has had a difficult experience in school or at home, these sessions could give them a place to talk it through and some assistance with bouncing back.
Sessions with your child will be structured to make deposits into their resilience bank and give them tools to maintain this.
(Minimum commitment - 6 weeks)
Social & Emotional Development Coaching
Does your child or teen have difficulties in the areas of self awareness, self regulation, self confidence and social connection. Do they find it hard to manage their social interactions and emotions? This area of their development is called Social Emotional Learning.
Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. (Source: theartofeducation.edu)
These skills are learned skills - a language of a different sort. Its the ability to read, process and articulate ones own or other people's feelings and then act accordingly. Just as some parents might pay to provide their young person with maths tutoring or guitar lessons, other students might need some extra support or tutoring for social emotional growth and development.
(Minimum commitment - One Term)
I-Myself Personal Growth & Development
What does the voice of your child or teen say to them about themselves? The voice that speaks the loudest is their own - what it is saying is critically important.
The self-concept is what we think about the self; self-esteem, is the positive or negative evaluations of the self, as in how we feel about it." ( Smith and Mackie )
Self-esteem is an individual's subjective evaluation of their own worth. Self-esteem encompasses beliefs about oneself as well as emotional states, such as triumph, despair, pride, and shame.
Self-concept is generally thought of as our individual perceptions of our behaviour, abilities, and unique characteristics. It is essentially a mental picture of who you are as a person. (Source: theverywellmind.com)
It is so important that we help our young people to answer their doubts and questions about themselves - answering their question "Am I enough?" with a resounding Yes! This coaching program will do that.
(Minimum commitment - One Semester)
(Good)Mental health is a state of wellbeing in which an individual realises their own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and can contribute to their community. Poor mental health can impact on the potential of young people to live fulfilling and productive lives (WHO 2018).
1 in 5 young people say they're struggling with their mental health (ABC News 9 June 2021 - According to data from the Australia Talks National Survey.) . Poor mental health is different from mental health illness and can be improved when a young person has a safe place to explore what is impacting on their mental health.
