Child Mental Health Coach
Transforming your child to live their fullest and healthiest life, by providing them with the tools to manage any situation now and into adulthood.
Our coaching caters to Children, Teenagers and Families.
Studies show that around one in seven young Australians between the ages of 4-17 years experience a mental health condition.
It is often painful for parents to see their son or daughter in anguish and not know what to do next to help.
Child Coaching is different from other therapies which tend to treat mental health issues as an illness or problem, we focus on what to do next! We help identify and set goals and give children strategies and tools to help them now and into adulthood.
When faced with a challenge we typically look for one solution however we know its not always a one size fits all approach. At Wings Wellness we look at a solution based on all heath areas; mindset, environment, nutrition and physical activity. We then customise our solutions by working hand in hand with your family to identify and understand what is happening.
Hi, I'm Katerina.
A mum, step mum, wife and child mental health coach.
I often wonder how different our lives would be if our parents invested in our mental well-being as much as they did in our academic success.
Having experienced, first hand young men and women suffering from severe mental illness I began to explore why, why was it now so common?
What I found is most of the challenges occurred in childhood, and these young individuals did not have the tools to deal with these challenges.
Subsequently, I established Wings Wellness Centre. A one stop shop, which specialise in all aspects of a child's mental health!
We specialise in:
Children suffering from mild depression and anxiety.
Improving behaviour and temperament e.g. anger, grumpy, moody and hyperactive.
Working through a major change or difficult situation e.g. parents separation, death and school bullying.
Developing self-esteem and confidence.
Building towards their goals and achievements.
Events that happen when we’re young, even those we think are small and insignificant can have a direct impact on how we feel and behave as adults! When working with children our focus is to work with them and teach them how to reach goals and solve problems. We look at how we can make positive change by providing them with tools and weekly goals, rather than focusing on past events.
When working with a family we use a coaching method referred to as Strategic Intervention (SI).The emphasis of the therapy is not on the individual but on the social situation or structure.
The goals of strategic family therapy are to solve problems, achieve the family's goals, and ultimately, change an individual's dysfunctional or problematic behaviour.
