Building Resilience For Life
Teenagers haven’t fundamentally changed but the world in which they live has. The pace of change is unprecedented and, with so much uncertainty, it is little wonder that many teens, and those supporting them, are struggling to cope.
At Teen Tips, we believe that when teachers, coaches, parents and carers work together to promote strong self-esteem and emotional resilience, children and teenagers can thrive socially, emotionally and in education. We work with adults and young people, to help them develop the self-regulation and emotional agility they will need to overcome the inevitable challenges of life in the 21st Century.
Our training and resources are largely delivered via our Wellbeing Hub, which schools and parents access online. We draw on the latest research from psychotherapy, psychology and neuroscience, along with Teen Tips Founder, Alicia Drummond’s experience of working as an adolescent therapist and being a mum. Through the Wellbeing Hub and our live Webinars and Talks, we help schools and parents deepen their understanding of adolescence, and create environments which promote emotional wellbeing in young people.Make An Enquiry
