I believe in girls' innate potential for greatness. I also know how vulnerable young women can be and how skewed their outlook often is - in a world that is far from gender-equal.
After several years of individual positive psychology coaching, I decided to formalise what I did for the good of my community. In May 2020, I established Betterness Manifesto CIC in Hastings, East Sussex, UK.
I work with a number of other positive psychology coaches, psychologists and wellbeing professionals. Together, we offer in-school and community-based workshops for small groups of teenage girls and young women. Ordinarily, we would prefer to run our workshops in local community hubs - nothing comes close to face-to-face contact. However, for reasons I do not need to explain, we are now forced to pivot our social enterprise model and find other ways to reach the most important people in our world - our participants and collaborators.
My pride and joy is the Betterness Manifesto Workshop - a one-day programme for teen girls - a comprehensive emotional resilience and female empowerment workshop, using a range of evidence-based positive psychology interventions. The workshop can accommodate up to 30 girls over a one-day programme and I always aim to keep the cost low for State schools and 'appropriate' for fee-paying schools. In effect, we call this our sustainable pricing model.
I want to offer the Betterness Manifesto Workshop free to as many girls as humanly possible, so if you are a school that can afford the full fee consider what good will come from your purchase: for every full-fee workshop purchased I will offer 50% off for a local State school, youth group or community organisation (registered as NFPs).
I also offer 1-2-1 positive psychology coaching to teenage girls and young women presenting with a wide range of concerns or personal struggles including those around self-esteem and self-confidence, body positivity and self-identity, sexuality, anger management and anxiety control, imposter syndrome and bullying. These can take place over Zoom (in full-compliance with current Government restrictions).
