Coaching & Mentoring Highly Sensitive Children

A Transpersonal & Integrative Perspective for Empowering the Wellbeing of Highly Sensitive Children

Coaching Highly Sensitive Children is about empowering children to develop more self-awareness; learn how to self-regulate; communicate their needs and understand what they’re feeling.

Developing these skills and awareness from an early age enables children to go into adulthood with the resources, awareness, and skills they need to feel empowered in themselves. As mentors, we’re also acting as role models and guides for their healthy development and well-being. What's different from coaching adults is that we have more of an active role in guiding and helping children learn the tools they need to develop self-awareness and self-regulation. In this way, the work we do is also more preventative than reactive. Coaching and mentoring HSC from a transpersonal and integrative approach means we are working with the child's:
  • Emotions, Mindset, and Behaviour

  • Development of Healthy Relationships with others

  • Connection & Awareness to the Environment and Nature

  • Nurturing the child’s Spiritual Expression.
