Mental Wellness Coaching with teenagers is an increasing need as evidenced by the rise in suicidal ideations, attempts and the fact we are losing our young people at alarming rates. The isolation caused by the pandemic has not made normal teenage development an easy process. As parents you have an opportunity to ensure your children are not using drastic methods as a coping skill in response to the challenges of life.
Mental Wellness Coaching will help your pre-teen/teenagers to develop self-esteem, individuality, critical thinking, decision making and the leadership skills needed to embrace their uniqueness. Working with Michelle will help to ensure hey maintain confidence in their purpose and potential.
Mental Wellness Coaching will also operate as a gauge to determine your child’s needs and if other interventions are necessary. Michelle has successfully used behavioral intervention techniques with youth and have helped them to turn from negative behavioral and thought processes. We use the Four R Method at our initial session. We meet with the referring parent to Recognize the issues, barriers your teenager is having or behaviors, attitudes, mindset they are exhibiting. Then we determine if we need to Refer them to any other services. All referral options have been thoroughly vetted. If a coaching partnership is appropriate, then we Relate to your child by building connection and relationship with active listening, and discussion. Then we Restore their balance, hope, confidence, communication, and healthy social adaptation.
The initial consultation is conducted in a join session with the parent and potential client and then there are two brief individual moments and a closeout meeting.
