Parenting a Child with Mental Illness – Parent Coaching Program
Reclaim your life and thrive! This 6-month VIP program is your path!
After the shock and crisis that comes with your child’s formal mental illness diagnosis, there becomes an awareness that something must change. Yet how and where to start regaining your strength and joy in the midst of daily chaos seems daunting.
I believe we all have our answers within us.
I also believe we can lose sight of that very important human power.
You are forced to cope with life at a break-neck pace, constantly juggling one crisis after another, depending on the choices and behaviors of your mentally challenged child on any given day. This frenetic “lifestyle” will certainly impact your health of some form – physical, mental, emotional, relational – maybe a combination. Is this kind of collapse enough for your wake-up call or do you have to get to the point I did?
Not the recommended form of being the best parent I could be for my daughter’s intense needs.
Having been there myself is the reason I am passionate to be a parent coach for people like me. In the early stages of managing life with my daughter’s mental illness, I never gave myself the option to follow a spiritual path – choosing sanity, choosing myself, recovering my light so I could be the best advocate for my daughter’s wellbeing.
Coming out of my own shadows has given permission for other parents do the same.
Creating a life transformation is not for the faint of heart. When those who are ready take a moment to breathe deeply and be still enough to recognize the flicker of light within, the still small internal voice pleads, “Enough. I’m tired. We need to do something else, Dear One.”
Do something else. Small steps. Courageous steps. Boost your batteries.
For years of my personal transition and spiritual growth, I’ve learned, explored, had a few battle wounds along the way and celebrated – big time. I’ve LIVED (and still live) your struggles raising a child with ongoing, ever-changing behavior challenges.
Face it – wouldn’t you prefer to be led out of a maze by someone who has figured out how to exit and has led others on the simplest path to exit, too? You don’t need to invest years of your life at a constant level of angst like I did. I’ve shortened your path.
My proprietary 6-month coaching program is designed to turn your internal flicker into a full-on inferno. There are six (6) very specific shifts that I’ve designed for your self-empowerment, coaching you through your transition from exhaustion to energy, overwhelm to choices, isolation to joy and optimism.
In this life-changing coaching program, these cornerstones and take-aways build on each other:
- Seek Quiet
- Shift Mindset
- Be Joyful
- Let Go
- Uncover Purpose
- Speak Truth
Those are monumental principles in themselves, yet only part of the game that will bring the very essence of your life back to you from wherever it was parked while you were focused so intently on being an advocate for your child.
The unique program format offers support on many levels:
- ½ day virtual intensive Foundation session (3-4 hours)
- Personalized assessment (60 min)
- With one parent:
- 12 private 45 min virtual coaching sessions (2 per month)
- With both parents:
- 2 private 30 min virtual 1:1 coaching sessions for each parent
- 12 private 45 min virtual group coaching sessions
- One 60-minute closing session with one or both parents at the end of the program.
- Access to coach during crisis
You’ll also get a lifetime membership in my client-only, closed and confidential Facebook group where you can connect with like-minded parents in a safe space to share similar experiences, celebrate successes, gain support and have access to further tips, inspiration and learning.
Additionally, I’ll be doing periodic Facebook Live sessions, only offered to clients where you can ask questions. To maintain your momentum in the program, two separate coach/client email exchanges are included for questions or updates. Finally, enjoy weekly email inspiration, tips and tools to empower you on your journey.
Your precious child has brought the gift of self-awakening to you. If not for your deep love, their spiritual journey with mental illness would not have led you to the place and time you are right now to master your own personal growth.
