Hi! I’m Sally. I bring nearly 30 years of international school education experience and training to providing success coaching for high-achieving teens and the adults around them.
Although the high achievers often do well academically and/or in their chosen sport or passion area, behind that seemingly successful facade they can lack confidence, or a sense of belonging, or a clear sense of who they are in the world - or maybe all three! Some high achievers have become driven as a way of overcoming childhood trauma. Many high achievers also need extra support with stress and time management as they usually lead busy lives while holding themselves to very high standards. Because they are high achievers, it is often assumed that since they are doing well, all is fine…
These skills and the growth mindset that needs to underlie them are vital for success in life, important areas of development that overcrowded school curriculums usually don’t have time for and certainly don’t have time to personalize.
Parents, carers and grandparents want the best for their young people, but in the age of personal devices and social media, sometimes it can feel like a struggle with communicating, setting healthy boundaries and expectations and generally just managing their young people and teens. Even when there is a strong family connection, communication can become more distant during the teenage “rollercoaster” years.
There is no easy reference ‘manual’ for supporting your child through their tumultuous teens! Lean In to Sally’s advice, coaching and resources to support you with guiding your teen through the terrific highs, the turbulent times and everything in between.
