Wisdom Life Kids Coach
Hello and Welcome! My name is Debra Thomas; I am a certified WISDOM coach with 26 years of child development and behavioral experience under my belt. I’ve always had a passion and the innate ability to relate to children, beginning at the age of 16 when I landed my first job in a daycare setting and grasped that I had a gift that most people do not inherently have or attempt to cultivate, and that is the ability to understand, empathize, and encourage children that are considered “difficult.”
Over the years, I have continued my education to ensure I have the most current knowledge and tools to be successful in my field. I currently hold an Associate of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education, Child Development Associate Credentials (CDA), Certified Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Practitioner (CBT), and I am also a certified Wisdom Life Kids Coach. I have received numerous awards in Excellence, and many CEU’s in behavioral modification trainings. I’m most proud of my “EXCELLENCE PARTNERSHIP WITH FAMILY AWARD. “I worked hard and intentionally to meet the development challenges with children, which included a partnership with the entire family.
It has been my privilege to encourage and observe as children overcome the pitfalls associated with growing from a child to adolescence, with a confidence that allows them to stand against any opposing challenges of peer pressure. I strive for Excellence with all the kids I coach, and it has been rewarding watching as they strive for that same Excellence within him/her self.
My purpose is to help children recognize their potential and tap into the infinite possibilities that will come with unlocking those sources from within. There are various techniques used as each child is unique and requires coaching tailored to them specifically.
This includes, but is not limited to:
Adventure in wisdom storytelling
Skills Assessments and Application
Self-Esteem and Self-Confidence building exercises.
Cognitive Training (Brain Power)
In my 10+ years of mentoring families, I have come to learn that it is crucial that the family be coached/mentored for the betterment of the child. When the family takes the initiative to understand and learn the skills needed for their child’s success, the family as a whole becomes a more cohesive and contented unit. I am not only committed to the child, but my commitment also extends to family in its totality.
If your child needs assistance in identifying goals, building self-esteem, self – confidence and realizing their purpose, or the family needs support, please contact me via my website and complete a contact form at www.hisogm.com. I’ll get back to you within the next business day.
Because you matter!!
