TEEN PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT & PARENT SUPPORT
Teenage transitions cause a fair bit of stress and anxiety, affecting confidence and self-esteem. VCE choices, Y12 pressures, relationship conflicts, and new adult responsibilities can cause them emotional overload.
Moods? Sudden explosions? Meltdowns? Your teen no longer their happy self?
No one told us it would be this hard... As parents and carers there is nothing scarier than seeing your teenager struggle to find their balance. Their anxieties, insecurities and moods can take over, making relationships and everyday life harder for everyone around them.
Don't just cope with this stage of their lives, set them up to fulfil their potential.
What if you could help them have a positive attitude, communicate better, and use their strengths to live meaningful lives? With our teen personal development sessions they can discover their strengths, understand what is happening to them and learn effective strategies to make things better. The life skills they learn will also help them find and keep better jobs in the future.
Not Sure they'll want to come to the sessions?
It is important for them to feel comfortable and that they can trust and get along well with the person they will be working with. We suggest a trial session, to give them an opportunity to find out what is involved and wether they would like to work with us. This freedom to choose removes their worry about being ‘forced’ to attend sessions so they can relax and make the most of the session.

You’re the expert, I’ve got the questions. Let’s do it together!
Ever since these tiny creatures were placed in our care we have been doing the best we can to keep them safe. Let's face it, sometimes we are at our wit's end. To top it all off, everyone seems to offer different and often contradictory advice. The thing is one-size-fits-all formulas do not apply to all teens.
'Wouldn’t it be nice if they came with a manual? What if told you it’s not that difficult to come up with an individualised strategy for your teen? The simple truth is you already know more about them than anyone in the world, so its a matter of asking the right questions that will allow you to work out a solution that best fits your family. Coming up with strategies to understand and manage their temperament, build their self-esteem, set boundaries, and many more.
