Teen Mentoring

Mentoring Teens to Reduce Stress & Anxiety

Teens today are suffering from more and more pressure - academic and social.  I regularly mentor teens on a 1:1 basis, as a preventative measure to boost their resilience or to help with existing issues such as teen depression, test anxiety, generalised teen anxiety & teen stress, eating disorders, bullying, cutting or self-harming, and other issues of mental well-being.  Teens who have completed this Teen Mentoring Program are happier and more successful academically and socially, however my time is limited and the cost of private mentoring can be prohibitive for many people.  For this reason, I am offering group mentoring in order to reach a larger number of teens at a price that is affordable.  

Teen Mentoring Program Overview        

This curriculum is specifically designed for youth, ages 12-22 (all teachers have UK Enhanced DRB Certificates).  Each lesson takes a deep look at the human experience (how the mind works) and how we can use this knowledge to cultivate human and creative potential within all lives.  Throughout this curriculum, participants will be guided toward their inner brilliance in order to maximise their personal potential, giving them optimism and confidence to achieve amazing things!

Classes are held online in a virtual classroom that engages students in a highly interactive, real-time virtual learning environment while in the comfort and privacy of their own home.  All you need is access to the internet and a computer, laptop or tablet.

The goals of the SPARK Teen Mentoring Program* are to reduce risk of school absenteeism, bullying, suicide, teen depression and teen anxiety and build resilience, academic success and improved social-emotional skills in teenagers.  The programme address the following:

  • Academic Success                                                                                     
  • Emotional Competency
  • Self-Efficacy Skills
