My passion, my drive, my why... Helping youth reach their potential!
Hi i'm Ali!
I'm a Youth Empowerment Coach + Mentor for Tweens, Teens and Young Adults, focusing on helping them realise how amazing they are right now! Specialising in Self Love & Self Care, Confidence & Self Esteem, Anxiety & Stress and Body Image. Located in Perth WA.
I'm passionate about helping young people 'fill up their cup' and EMBRACE being their unique beautiful self and know that their magic lies in their differences.
I have experience working with both younger kids and older teens and bring a calming, fun and supportive energy to all my workshops and trainings, making sure each student feels comfortable and confident to be themselves and participant in group activities.
I run workshops, 1:1 mentoring, and have lots of free downloaded resources on my website primarily for youth aged 7 - 19. My programs act as early interventions to help prevent youth growing up and developing things such as anxiety, eating disorders, depression and poor mental health in general. These programs are created to have lasting positive impact on these young people's lives for years to come and overall celebrate the person they are and the beauty of their uniqueness. More resilience, empowerment, individuality and self love.
On a more personal note, growing up and being a teen I felt uncomfortable in my own skin, had a bad relationship with my body, no self love or confidence, hated participating in sports or doing speeches cause the attention was on me, and in general lacked self belief and didn't like myself. I constantly compared myself to everyone and valued myself little to no worth because I didn’t look like the girls in magazines or the ones all the boys chased after! I wasn’t the smartest, the funniest, or the prettiest, and relied on the scales to tell me if I was good enough to enjoy life... in my eyes I wasn’t good enough and thought I didn’t deserve to feel happy or have fun being myself. My days were full of stress and anxiety paired with a fake it till you make it smile so I didn’t “stand out” more... and these negative self hate foundations that surfaced stayed with me through my early 20s until I started to reflect and embrace everything I am and have to offer as ME! I realised that being unique is my super power and only I get to choose how I feel, what my worth is, and that my happiness comes from what's on the inside not the out! I want to help other youth realise their true potential too!
