Trauma therapy - EMDR
We're not just another adult – We're not gonna lecture you. We're not a best friend – We really won't gossip behind your back, and we actually do know what to do. We're not a sibling or rival – We're not in competition with you. We really are on your side.
As coaches we focus on where you are now in your life, where you would rather be, and how to get there. Challenges are a part of everyone’s life. Being challenged will never go away, but you can learn tools and strategies to successfully overcome whatever life (and parents, and teachers, and friends, and whoever…) throw at you. Coaching is simple, yet powerful – and we have fun too!
