Growing up as a girl in 2023 can be tricky!

Perhaps your daughter / niece / goddaughter is starting to worry about her appearance, having ups and downs with friends, or starting to feel pressure at school?

You’re encouraging and supporting her, but you feel she doesn’t always hear you.

I can help.

Since 2014 I’ve been empowering girls through confidence workshops at schools. Now I’m offering online classes for girls. Teaching small groups of girls ideas and tips to build their self-belief.

“Be Yourself. Love Yourself” Online class

I’ll teach each girl to:

• To appreciate her uniqueness
• To build her self-awareness and appreciation through fun activities
• To recognise the talents and skills she is already developing
• A quick confidence boost technique to use anytime
• To develop kinder self-talk

For girls aged 10 to 12 (other classes will be available soon for 14-16 year olds).

The next class is 10.30am on Thursday 27 July 2023.  This is for a small group – only 6 places are available.

Our approach to empowering teen girls

Girls often have the answer to overcoming their difficulties themselves. Together, let’s support, guide, encourage and believe in them, as they learn to navigate their teen years, figure things out, and grow further into the amazing human beings they are. In my years of running live workshops with teen girls, it’s been a privilege to witness how resourceful, perceptive, supportive, determined, funny, caring and ambitious teen girls can be. They don’t need “fixing”, they simply need some simple guidance, so they can learn some tools to best navigate their teen years and beyond.
