Youth Empowerment Coach & Mentor Ali, provides a safe & welcoming space to gently guide your young person from self-doubt to self-confidence & help them to work through any difficulties they may be facing.
They might be experiencing low self esteem, body image concerns, having difficulty with friendships, struggling with the comparisons and pressures of social media or feeling stressed, uncomfortable or anxious about simply being them. Our workshops focus on these common issues by touching on a range of topics to form positive and healthy mindsets in a fun, easy to action way but we also understand that sometimes a group environment isn't the most suitable environment for everyone.
Our 1:1 mentoring sessions will provide your young person strategies and tips to navigate their feelings and struggles specifically, on a deeper level than in a group workshop. A gentle, relatable and comfortable approach... no pressure, no right or wrong, no scary therapy vibes...
Think of Ali as their BFF cheering them on or their big sister helping them embrace their amazing self!
WHAT DOES THE mentoring INVOLVE?
This is a quick meet up session with the parent/guardian and Mentor (Ali) to chat about the specific concerns of what you and your young person want to be guided and supported with during the 4 mentoring sessions to follow.
This session allows us to connect and determine if Ali's mentoring is the perfect match for your young person.
Your young person is welcome to attend if desired, but I encourage this time to be for us adults only, to talk in detail without any extra pressure being put onto the young person.
This session can be held at a suitable location that suits both parties, for example parents house, mentors house or a local cafe, park or Zoom etc.
After the meet up we decide if this is a mentoring match. If so we book in a day and time that suits both parties for the 4 x mentoring sessions.
These 4 sessions can be done in-person or via Zoom if required with the young person and Mentor (Ali) only.
It’s important to invest time so that trust can be developed, skills can be learnt, and therefore positive change can be made, which is why we have 4 mentoring sessions. 1 x 45 minute session each week over a month.
Session 1 - Welcome and introduction of each other where we mostly chat over a juice or snack. We gently share things about ourselves and form some trust to open up about how they might be feeling through the use of question cards and prompts.
Session 2-4 - These are tailored to the young person and developed during the week after each session and what may have been brought up. The use of complimenting worksheets for engagement will be created to work on together in the upcoming session or at a time that suits the young person. All focusing on growth in the area of concern and developing a helpful positive mindset.
This session can be held at a suitable location that suits both parties, for example young persons house, mentors house or a local cafe or park etc.
