  • ​Kids do better when they know not only 'what' is happening with their emotions, but also 'how' (science) and 'why' (cause and effect).

  • Kids will leave this workshop knowing the role of their prefrontal cortex and the amygdala when stress and big emotions show up; common stressors, fight-flight-freeze response, and emotional regulation coping tools will be covered.

  • Finally, a proven way using stories and multi-sensory learning to help kids understand what happens in their brain when they are angry, embarrassed, anxious, or stressed so they can take back their inner power without losing self-esteem.

  • When emotions get big, and kids get stressed, many of them don't know what to do about it or how to cope.

  • The child-brain doesn’t fully mature until age 25+; this means that children will feel challenged in understanding and managing their big emotions, but they don't actually know what's happening inside of them and why, and this impacts their self-esteem, especially if their caregivers don't know how to support them.

  • This workshop is based on a multi-sensory learning experience involving stories, discussion, self-discovery work, mindfulness practices, and arts and crafts.

Coaching for Kids

We want the best for our kids as we go about in this ever-changing world don't we? I'm a parent just like you, but I've also been a kid who struggled too - and I know what it's like! 

How do we teach the kids in our lives to hold their heads high, make strong confident decisions, and empower them to achieve what they want in life without getting stuck in the "ruts"? We can love our kids to bits, but we can't give them high self-confidence, soaring self-esteem, or a strong self-image. BUT we can provide them tools and resources that show them how to develop the mindset they need to develop these qualities. 

And no, more often than not, they are not getting regular long-lasting explicit exposure to the learning of these skills in schools, and most adults don't know the information I share in my Kids Coaching Programs.


Parents Recommend

"Thanks Ashley for your explanations and enthusiasm. I have since noticed my daughter applying the concepts and she is now quite interested in journaling and getting her feelings out. The crafts and concepts were made fun and easy to understand.  She uses her 'failure' box and seems to get a sense of reduced stress from it. I am quite happy with the experience overall and I would recommend it to friends and colleagues."


- Apryl Gladue, parent

"Ashley is incredibly gifted in her ability to connect with children. She offers advanced personal growth topics to children in a way they can fully understand, integrate and have FUN with! She brings so much passion and enthusiasm to every interaction, and easily inspires kids to both embrace and embody her brilliant teachings.

She holds loving, supportive space for the expansion of the entire family system. I am so grateful for her impact on our world and highly recommend her as a coach, teacher and mentor!"

-Toni Harris, Mother of an 8 year old one-on-one coaching participant.

“I feel confident it was money well spent! I’m loving my new calm home; and even though the sessions were for my daughter, my son is so much happier too - thank you, thank you, thank you!"

-Holly Twerdochlib, mother of 12 year old child (One-on-One Child Coaching and Parent Coaching)
