Keeping Your Employees Supported at Home & Productive in the Workplace
Parent Training & Consultation to Manage those ‘Tricky’ Adolescent Years
Employee Health & Well-Being Solutions
When teen and pre-teenage children start playing up there is no other stress like it!
- answering back and rude at home
- staying out late
- getting in with the wrong crowd
- poor grades and attitude at school
- underage sexual relationships
- binge drinking, experimenting with drugs
- teen depression; self harm; eating disorders
Now imagine your employees coming into the workplace and having to put a brave face on it all.
Dealing with clients – making crucial decisions in order to push your company forward and all the while stressed with their own personal problems.
The cracks soon start to appear and take their toll in lapses in concentration, days off sick or worse – resignations in order to have that time at home in order to manage the crisis.
An ‘out of control teen’ impacts on their productivity and your bottom line.
Nothing comes before a parent and their family and statistics show that the adolescent years are becoming increasingly more complex and difficult to manage.
When things start to crumble, the guilt of being at work and not at home to take care of things is the very first thought that springs to mind.
With no tools and no support to manage the issues – rightly or wrongly, work becomes the problem and resentment builds.
Well, why don’t you be that employer who becomes part of the solution?
The organisation that actually gives a monkeys?

"I learnt how I can improve the communication channels with my teen and I also learned much more about the stresses, issues and challenges our kids face through adolescence and what I can do to help him deal with these challenges or fears as they crop up. This is invaluable stuff that should be made compulsory!! And Anika Vassell you kept me captivated! Fantastic job and I highly, highly recommend.”
“This has been extremely valuable in terms of content and tools to work out problem solving. I will refer to the toolkit and be able to review the way I have previously dealt with conflicts and revise them. I now feel extremely confident to address behaviour issues with my son. The key message that I have taken away from this course is that I am not alone in this and that there is valuable and effective help and support available. If someone were not sure of attending this workshop I would tell them that this is one of the best investments that they could make in order to affect a better relationship with their child!”
“These workshops will help with the interactions with my child because I now know how he develops. I am more confident and I feel better equipped with methods I have learnt.”
“This was by far the best course I’ve been on in a long time. It was very informative. Anika, you’ve helped me to understand my children at a deeper level and have supported me with tools that allow me to HEAR and appreciate them more and in return for them to HEAR and appreciate me better. I would recommend your course to ALL parents especially to those who have children going through adolescent years.
- Thank you for giving simple, practical yet very powerful advice.
- For taking on board EVERYTHING that we shared.
- For equipping me with tools and with knowledge backed with research.
- For giving me confidence and allowing me to claim back what it means to be a parent.
- Thank you for teaching me control, calmness, boundaries, understanding, openness,
- and most of all how to communicate better and recognise when our children need us more.
Thank you Anika you are a very motivating and inspiring individual. I’ve enjoyed every session and have looked forward to coming back each time! ”
“This course has provided me with a fascinating insight into the science and psychology of what’s going on with our teens as well as some very useful strategies for communicating positively with them.
Anika is well informed and experienced and is able to answer any question or respond to any scenario with SOUND ideas and suggestions. Above all, I have come away with a belief in myself to do a good job with my children! I would recommend this course to anyone who is struggling to understand their teen
.... and to those who aren’t! Thank you Anika.”
“This has been very informative. It will help me to reflect on situations, aiding forward thinking. I feel more confident and I’m already thinking of how I will put what I have learnt into action. Te key message that I have taken away is that “It’s okay to parent and not just let them go!” “ To be confident & try to keep one step ahead”. I am feeling empowered and better aided with tools. If someone where not sure of attending this workshop I would say “Give it a go!”Jayne Cole
“This course has been incredibly informative with some very useful insights. They have helped me to stop and think before reacting and have given me empathy to understand their needs. I feel much more confident. It’s now about practice to make it fluent. The key message that I have taken away is not to react with predictable responses! I feel empowered because I have a set of useful ‘tools’ with which to communicate and resolve conflict. I would advise someone who wasn’t sure about this course to have an open mind – you will learn more than you expected!”.Simon Pryce
