Stella was a confident, popular and happy young person who enjoyed playing netball, basketball and just hanging with her friends. All that changed when her mother got a job in a new city! Stella feels that the shift to the new city has wrecked her life; she misses her friends and feels that she does not fit in at her new school. She has lost confidence in herself and finds it hard to get motivated to do anything. Her school work is suffering and her fitness level has dropped dramatically as she has not played or trained for sport for at least three months. She feeling that her old friends have forgotten her and she feels left out of the social goings on back in her old town.
Stella’s aunty Maria is a life coach and the family have called her in to talk to Stella.
Maria is shocked by the change in Stella but reassures Stella and her family that she knows how to get Stella’s life back on track. Stella and Maria start by sitting down and making a list of all the good things that Stella has going for her. She as a network of friends back in her old town, she has a supportive family, she is good at sport and she has Maria help to work out what she want’s, to set some goals and to create an action plan. Maria explains that once she know what her goals are and has an action plan the future will look much brighter. Once we have the action plan she explains you will be able to move beyond your self-doubts, overcome your fears, you will begin to think positive and your self esteem and confidence will increase.
