Intuitive help for intuitive young people
Let's face it — adolescence can be tough: a rapidly changing body, navigating insecurity and sexuality, the profound importance of fitting in with a peer group, and the pressure to succeed academically. That coupled with being highly sensitive, psychic or empathic can make adolescence a very challenging time.
I know how to work with young people. For 15 years I designed and led award-winning programs proven to change at-risk behavior of high school youth.
Many young people feel no one understands them. They may have a hard time expressing what is going on inside of them. Young people may not know themselves and what they really want. The perceived pressure of their peers and youth culture can create a haze that keeps young people from their own knowing.
Sensitivity becomes a gift
Having an adult in a child's life who can sense what is really going on can go a long way to help a young person feel more understood and be less self-destructive.
As a person who has learned to manage my sensitivities, I know how to help other intuitive, empathic people navigate empathic sensitivities without becoming overwhelmed and lost in what can seem like a pressured, intrusive, erratic world.
Sensitive young people learn techniques to ground, center, clear and balance themselves so they emerge as responsible, satisfiable, successful adults.
