Sports Mentoring that builds, creates and innovates
Being a part of the culture change
Safe and confidential sessions that focus on mindset and well-being. For me mindset growth stems from awareness. When you are aware of the areas to support you can implement a plan of action. My trauma-informed approach allows me to understand individuals that may come from difficult life experiences.
The aim is to be a part of a change in culture and a movement in ensuring that athletes get the support that is needed.
Research shows short term mentoring can have a devastating impact on development.
Relationships with mentors that last less than three months; where there is irregular and inconsistent contact; where there is a disconnect between the personalities, interests, and expectations of the mentors and mentees; where mentors are unprepared and lack skills to relate to youth; and where there is no emotional bond between the mentor and mentee have been found to be harmful to youth (Jekielek et al., 2002; Rhodes & DuBois, 2006)
In light of this research the aim is to build healthy relationships that spark mutual trust.
