Empower Your Teen to Thrive in Today's Stressful World | Unit F, Schurlock Place | Friday, 27. September 2019

The life of a teenager is fraught with the potential for overwhelm, overload, pressure, stress, relationship breakdowns, confidence-bashing, feeling misunderstood and many other difficulties.  We know that teenage life doesn’t feel negative all of the time but, when things aren’t going well, life can affect them deeply and impacts those around them.
This workshop will give you tips and techniques to help you support your teen, and guide them to develop skills and resilience, so that they are prepared for whatever life throws their way.

During the day, you will:

Learn how to help your Teen understand the depth and breadth of who and what takes their energy so they can begin to understand how and why they can feel overwhelmed at times;

Learn how to help your Teen understand their relationship with help and support, and how that might affect them and their behaviour;

Learn how to help your Teen to understand who and what is currently supporting them in their life and what changes they may need to make to that framework;

Learn about effective yet gentle techniques that can help your Teen break free from the negative emotions & beliefs that can trigger stress, anxiety, overwhelm and more;

Learn how to support your Teen to develop a better sense of themselves & their personal values - and how you can live alongside them if they are different to yours!

Leave with an action plan of what to do next to make a difference to your Teen’s life (and probably yours!)



Sue’s coaching style, backed up by her extensive training and experience, is a practical and highly effective combination of coaching, counselling, mentoring and facilitating. Sue believes that trying to compartmentalise parts of our life is both unhelpful and stressful, and so supports clients to explore & resolve issues across each of the aspects that make up their whole life.  
Sue’s gift is in seeing different perspectives in a situation to challenge people’s frames of reference, to then provide alternative ways of thinking and subsequent action.  
She is the proud owner of a husband, a teenager and 2 dogs.

Fiona has spent 25 years in the health industry, formerly in corporate life, before co-founding a business, and then running her own marketing consultancy. Always open to new approaches and learning, she was introduced to Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) when her teenager reached overwhelm.  Things had come to a head & other options were not working. With EFT improvement came after a few sessions, and the whole experience was transformational.  It blew her mind.
Fiona became an EFT practitioner and now, over and over again she sees how EFT works to neutralise the negative emotions and limiting beliefs that weigh clients down and hold them back – freeing them up to a new, healthier way forward.
Fiona is married to John, has two teens and a spaniel called Nellie.
