1:1 Empowerment Program for children and teens

When working with clients I have found that most of our insecurities and doubts start as a child. For myself, I had social anxiety as a child and was terrified of talking to people for fear of what they thought of me. Our children need to know that they are enough just as they are. That their voice matters and what they have to say is important. Teaching our children now the tools of how to love who they are will blossom them into being the best version of themselves. Many children hold their emotions in and feel that they need to be more or better to fit into society. 

Down the road, if not taken care of now with love this could cause anxiety, depression, an eating disorder, low confidence, or them just not being happy with who they are. 

Our children need us more than ever. With being at home more because of Covid or learning at home on the computer. They are being heavily influenced by the media and missing out on socializing with others. This is causing severe social anxiety or a negative inner dialogue. 

My current clients in the Self-Love program are as young as six to fifteen years old. I work with them where they are and teach them lessons in a way that they can understand. 


 I come in and bring play with creativity and get their minds to have a positive loving inner dialogue. I work at a soul level and teach intuitively. Each child is different and they all will learn based on their own needs. 

Here is an example of some of the lesson plans I teach: 

1. Positive Self Talk


2. Confidence: Not caring about what others think of you


 3. Your voice matters: Teaching them to always say what they feel and stand up for themselves. 


4. Values: Living a life of compassion and love


5. Focus on heart and mind vs. physical appearance: Learning the importance of taking care of your mental health.


6. Self Care: Slow down to listen to what their body needs


7. Success and failure: Teaching them that failure will happen in life and not to be hard on themselves when they go through it. That when you succeed you will feel more excited if you took the time and patience to work for it. 


8. Boundaries: Important so no one takes advantage of them and how to say no to things that are not good for their well being. 


9. Friendships: Spending time with people who uplift them.


10. How to create your own sunshine: That this is something no one can take from them. 

11. Appreciating all your body does for you 

12. How to love and accept your body through all seasons of life

13. Not comparing yourself to others


 14. Mindfulness: Meditation, journaling, intention setting


15.  JOY: How they can find joy in the little things of everyday life. 


Each lesson plan is custom to the child or teen's needs.

What are others saying about the program?


"Kayla has been working with my son, he is only 7 years old but I started noticing he has already been feeling down about himself. Not wanting to take his shirt off because he feels chubby. Kayla has been working with him on self-love and I can already see a difference in his confidence and the way he talks about himself. Kayla knows how to connect well with children. My son is normally very shy but he has opened up to Kayla. Thank you Kayla for love and guidance with both myself and my son!" 


"The girls graduated their 8- week empowerment program with

Kayla Pickering!


This has been such a wonderful experience for our girls! I feel so grateful that our girls had the opportunity to learn tools that will serve them in many aspects of their life. Throughout the 8 weeks, they learned about self-love, self-compassion, self-care, confidence, communication skills, speaking their truth, and advocating for themselves. The girls and I meditate together, they talk to us about their feelings and speak their truth.


They create their own sunshine and even have dance parties with us now! I can't imagine what they are going to accomplish in life having these resources and awarenesses so young! All this is possible because of the work that Kayla did with them. Kayla has been so great and I do not have girls that easily open up to people. The fact that they connected with her on the level that they did at the first session amazes me. Kayla has a natural talent, she radiates love and positivity and used words, explanations, and activities that the girls could understand and learn from.


From the first time I met with Kayla to talk about our needs, I felt like I had known her for years. In the very first session, Amaya's first words were " I feel light like I can breathe." She was learning to hold in her feelings and stress rather than speak about what was up for her. Each session the girls were so excited to share what they learned and each session they would open up to us more. I recommend Kayla's sessions for any young children! There does not need to be a crisis for us to provide our children with this beautiful gift that will serve them for many years to come! Thank you, Kayla, for all that you taught the girls these past 8 weeks!"

Questions Answered

What does the eight or twelve-week program include? 

Each plan includes a weekly one hour zoom or facetime session unless you choose in person at my office. After each session, you will receive a full detailed email going over the lesson plan and the work your child or teen did. They will have weekly homework and sometimes I will send videos for them to watch or music to listen to. I will be available also for emergency sessions if they are needing extra support and you can what's app voice message me throughout each week. You can let me know how they are doing or if you have any questions. 

Why should I hire you as your child's coach? 

After growing up as a young child in a dark headspace and watching how that affected me as a teen and adult, I have a deep passion for working with children and teens. I am able to understand how they are feeling and give them the tools to overcome all that is holding them back in life. Giving them the tools now so they can live their lives fully. I don't want anyone to be where I was and I have the ability to connect with them on a soul level. Seeing them and showing them how much beauty there is out there for them. I have worked with many children over the years and was a group leader for young girls at a school before moving to Australia. I build them up and become one of their biggest cheerleaders, showing them that they are capable of anything. 


What if my child or teen is unable to pay attention for the whole hour? 

Everyone is different and if they are not able to last the whole hour that is okay. We can make it 30 or 45-minute sessions and add the extra program into more sessions making the program longer.

Do I have to pay the full amount when we start the program?

You have the option of paying in full and receiving an extra 10% off. Paying half before we start and half later. Or talk to me and we can work out a payment plan that works for you. 

How do I pay? 

I email you an invoice to pay with a card. If you are on a payment plan, you will have automatic scheduled payments. 

When are payments due? 

If you are paying in full, payments are due before the first coaching session. Other payments will be scheduled depending on what we work out together. 

What if we can't make it to a session or have to skip a week? 

That is no problem just let me know at-least 24-hours in advance if possible so I can plan my schedule. We can reschedule the times. As a mother myself I know things happen and we can't always plan. Just do your best to send me a message.
