What’s it all about?
Shine From Within offers a limited number of one-on-one mentoring spots with our Director, Amanda Rootsey. We know that a group environment is sometimes not the best option, depending on what your beautiful young person is going through. Our mentoring sessions will gently encourage our client to love the skin their in and live THEIR dream life, right now. The mentoring sessions also allow us to go a bit deeper than the courses, honing in on THE INDIVIDUAL even more, without any distractions.
Amanda is a qualified Life Coach and a youth mentor and is also trained in positive body image and eating disorder prevention, as well as currently studying a certificate in young people’s mental health and the link with technology. She is not a trained psychologist or counsellor but rather takes a life coaching approach, which means the sessions won’t dive in to the past, but focus on the future. If you’re not sure if mentoring is right for your daughter, please feel free to get in touch here. I’d love to have a chat with you about what’s going on and see if mentoring is the best step forward. I’ll happily refer you on to a counsellor or psychologist if I think that’s what is more appropriate.
Who is it for?
Mentoring is perfect for someone who would benefit from a one-on-one experience and a gentle approach. We take a very personalised approach so it’s all about getting clear on what the young person’s goals are and then setting up a safe space to reflect on what’s going on their life and help them to take positive steps forward. Some scenarios where mentoring can be great are:
- the young person would like to work on ways to boost their self-confidence and self-worth
- the young person would like to set a goal to work on building stronger relationships with others (dealing with frenemies, etc)
- the young person would like extra support in achieving their sporting or academic goals
- the young person would like to feel stronger, healthier and more joyful
- the young person would like extra support
The young person must also be WILLING so the first step in the mentoring process is meeting with you and your daughter to make sure that both parties feel it’s the right move going forward.
When you decide to invest in a mentoring series, you and Amanda will have a phone or Skype meeting (often just with you as the parent in the first instance and then also with the young person). This serves a few purposes; making sure that the young person is committed to the process as the mentoring program only works if they are willing to turn up and put in the effort between sessions; making sure they feel really comfortable and finally to ensure that this is the best path forward for them.
In order to have lasting change, it’s important to invest time so that we can regularly check in, develop skills and build a relationship that will allow the young person to grow. To this end, there is a 6 session (3 month) minimum commitment.
The 6 session mentoring program includes:
- 6 x 1hr private sessions Skype or phone sessions ($900 value)
- Unlimited email access to Amanda for the duration of the 3 months ($250 value)
- Homework and worksheets to keep the young person focused, growing and evolving ($150 value)
To explain further, the 6 fortnightly sessions will run for approximately 1 hour. We will do these by video conferencing using Skype or over the phone if you don’t have access to Skype. If this doesn’t suit you for any reason, we can discuss alternatives.
"Hey Amanda, I was just thinking of you and thought I would send you a message to express my gratitude. Thank you so much for the time you spent mentoring me. This time was very special to me and I learnt a lot and still have a lot more to learn on my journey through life....I hope you are well and thank you again I am so grateful. xxx" (Ava, 14, July 2016. Ava did a school-based program with us in 2015 and a one-on-one mentoring series in 2016)
The 3 month mentoring program costs $230 per month ($690 total).
