Thrive for Teenagers
What is Thrive for Teenagers?
The Thrive for Teenagers Programme is a condensed but powerful version of the adult Thrive Programme. The sessions come with a workbook which is designed for teenagers to get the most out of their lives.
The book is completed during sessions with a Thrive Consultant or a parent who has undertaken the Thrive Programme already, and some of the exercises are completed at home. Teens will spend 5 weeks on the course however the learning will be pitched at their own level because we appreciate that everyone learns differently so some may take a bit longer, some may be a bit quicker to complete.
How does Thrive for Teenagers work?
During the delivery of the Thrive for Teenagers programme we help them to strengthen their psychological foundations in order to become happy, healthy and successful and thereby overcoming any anxieties, stress, fears, phobias, mood fluctuations, managing their thinking and emotions much more effectively. Along the way Teens will take back their personal power over their experiences which means that they will avoid being affected unduly by circumstances, events, experiences over which they have no control. They will learn how to become resilient, bouncing back when those unexpected and unpredictable curve balls come their way, also to feel good about themselves, regain control over themselves and not be so affected by other people.
What is the Thrive Programme good for?
I would say that the Thrive Programme covers just about anything that a teenager will struggle with at a time in their life when they most need some help. There are many changes and developments during the transitional stages from childhood to adulthood and not every child is adequately equipped to glide through those changes through no fault of their own.
Symptoms and Issues
Some symptoms and issues that I have helped children and teenagers with throughout the years are listed below and the list is by no means exhaustive.
Shyness, Shy Bladder (can’t pee in public toilets or in someone else’s house), School phobia, Bullying, Bed wetting, thumbor finger sucking, nail biting, selective mutism (fear of speaking), stammering, blushing, sports performance, confidence, self esteem, anxieties, fears, phobias (including emetophobia, the fear of sick or being sick), stress, exam nerves, trichotillomania (hair pulling), skin picking, body image, body dysmorphia, food phobia, fear of foods, fear of choking, feeling inadequate or not feeling good enough, perfectionism, obsessions and compulsions, encopresis (soiling – withholding bowel movements), weight related issues, gaining weight or losing weight and so much more.
The youngest I have taken a child successfully through the Thrive for Teenagers programme is 10 and it is suitable for kids up to about 16. After 16 (some before that) most teens would manage the adult version of the Thrive Programme.
Thrive sessions for younger children contain specially adapted sections of the work which the older children undertake.
