As a Parenting Coach and Trainer, I have seen a sharp increase in kids struggling with low self-esteem, anxiety and depression. According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, 1 in 5 children have mental health problems.
In recent years there has been an increase of 37% in teen depression and a 200% increase in suicide rates in kids 10-14 years old.
This is heart-breaking!

We are so fortunate to have been referred to Nola and the Confident Happy Kids program. Our son was having difficulties with bullying and was really struggling with his peers in school. My husband and I were at a loss as to what to do until we were referred to Nola.
Nola was an instrumental part in helping our son Keelan through some sad and frustrating times. Nola gave Keelan confidence, excellent coping skills and a positive outlook. He loved his time with Nola and we saw a huge change in him immediately.
Nola helped him to believe in himself and to be proud of who he was. She taught him how to deal with stressful situations and how to have fun. He was able to resolve his issues in school and truly stand up for himself.
Nola also helped my husband and I to be more present in our children's lives. She helped us to communicate more effectively with our children and with each other.
Nola provided youth with personal counselling as well as small group support within our Wellness Centre at the Forest Lawn High School.
I appreciated all her kindness and support to our vulnerable youth. It is people such as Nola who truly make a difference in the lives of youth impacted by mental health issues and other issues that make it challenging to focus on school and be successful academically.
Nola was able to reach out to these youth at risk and supported them to achieve success and make healthier choices.

My daughter Cerena, has been a coaching client of Nola’s for a few years. Throughout this important time in her life, Nola has been a “rock” for her.
A visit to Nola’s has meant a safe and welcoming opportunity to discuss feelings, emotions, victories and upsets. There has never once been a time when she’s left a visit when she hasn’t felt calm and uplifted - with new perspective on the day.
Cerena is a confident and happy teenage girl - and we owe huge thanks to Nola for helping her to develop coping skills and a positive outlook!
