Clear Genie Coaching Program


Clear Genie Workshops With Kim Bailey & Ariela Cravitz

Clear Genie Workshops is a programme of 5 workshops which support parents to identify and explore options for their future, and produce an Action Plan for next steps towards employment, education or training.

Using a coaching approach, incorporating a variety of tools, techniques and resources, these unique workshops are appropriate for any parent ready to consider returning to, or moving for the first time into employment, education or training.

Our Approach
Coaching is a proven method for inspiring and motivating individuals to identify a goal, and the necessary steps to achieve that goal. Coaching is non-judgmental, and places emphasis on the positive, always with a view to supporting the individual to move forward. The structure and approach used in this interactive programme is inclusive to all styles of learners. As such, it allows all participants to identify their own goal, specific to themselves, their experience and circumstances, and work towards producing their own unique action plan accordingly.

Enabling course participants to identify their own answers and actions means they gain renewed confidence in the abilities and skill that already exist within them which, in turn, serves to boost self-esteem. While each workshop achieves specific outcomes, the overall outcomes for participants attending the programme are:

  • Increased self-confidence
  • Increased awareness of available options for training, education and employment
  • Improved ability to make appropriate choices and decisions towards economic independence. 
  • Improved ability to communicate effectively with children regarding choices
  • Improved communication with families, service providers, and local communities.
