After many years of coaching troubled adults, over the last four years, Bernadette has brought about impressive results through her coaching of children. Bernadette is a trailblazer in this area. Moving attention from problem-solving alone to concentrating upon the prevention of issues within society, she works to build resilience from a young age. Her focus is on helping children to find the inner strength to face life’s ups and downs.
She has piloted her affirmation cards, along with parental guidance, in three primary schools. The cards were developed as a result of some of the challenges that children themselves had articulated.
Evaluation of the pilots have shown that this approach has helped children overcome fears, their self-limiting beliefs and to develop supportive friendships. For example, an 11 year old boy that she coached went up several stages in his SATs – much to his school’s amazement; and a 10 year old girl’s feeling of self-regard went up 70 points in the Pupil Attitude to Self and School Assessment.
