Benefit – To understand that this is where many of our thoughts and emotions come from and that we have the ability to shift to beliefs that are more agreeable to achieving our success in whatever area we choose.

 

Session #5 – Empowering Beliefs

Benefit – To understand that limiting beliefs are what often hold us back and show how to shift them into beliefs that work for us in achieving our goals and dreams.

Session #6 – Emotions

Benefit – Learning the importance of honoring our emotions as life’s feedback system but also to show our ability to shift them to ones that feel better when we are ready to move on.  This includes understanding that we have the ability to choose the emotions that we want in life whenever we like as opposed to waiting for life to provide circumstances for us to react to.

Session #7 – Mandalas

Benefit – To have a quiet reflective experience with a form of art that shows connection and creates a sense of calm.  Acknowledge the importance of art therapy as a choice for managing one’s own emotions.

Session #8 – Dreams, Goals and Taking Action

Benefit – To show the importance of having dreams, designing goals, and following through with baby steps each day towards achievement. 

Session #9 – Vision Boards and Community Puzzle

Benefit – Creation of a physical object that becomes a daily reminder of one’s dreams or a visual of how important each individual is as a part of a whole. This provides participants more fun and a relaxed opportunity for learning and development of these concepts.

Session #10 – Graduation 

Benefit – Celebration is an important part of accomplishment, empowerment and having fun!

IPPIE KIDS BOOKMARK.jpeg

For over 18 years, I have been teaching children and teenagers, and I have 3 children of my own. Working with children, throughout these years, has shown me how special they are and how fragile they can be. I have worked with students who were depressed, anxious or who just needed some guidance and support in their life.  I have always been an advocate of change and was able to show my students that change starts from within and successfully encouraged them to believe in themselves and their own strengths.

I am passionate about facilitating the “I Believe In Me” workshop because it empowers children and teenagers at a young age to believe in their own powers. They can create the life they want, be passionate and happy.
