“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look at fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.”Eleanor Roosevelt
Teenacity is a coaching service for teenagers and/or their parents to help them through the challenges experienced during the rocky transition to adulthood.

Teenacity is dedicated to teaching Teenagers how their brain really works and how to use it better for things they want to improve in their lives, such as motivation, self-esteem, confidence, anger management, relationships, and effective communication, to name a few.  We can help them overcome limiting beliefs and fears, guide them in the process of effective goal setting and help them identify with their natural talents and passions.

 

At Teenacity we also assist Parents who wish to better connect with their teenager during the complex transition between childhood and adulthood.  It can be a tough time, especially as the world they are growing up in is so different from ‘our days’.  Parents will learn how to maximize the power of positive communication for use within a given structure that gives teenagers the discipline yet space to grow into responsible adults.

The world teenagers live in today is so drastically different to the one we grew up in.

Technology, social media, mobile phones, advertising, reality TV, convenience, easy access to drugs, nicotine and alcohol, instant celebrity and increased competition. The ‘throw-away’ mentality inherited during the years of the Celtic tiger, etc. have all contributed to a vastly different landscape, lifestyle and language. They are processing so much more conflicting information, exposed to so much more choice and, therefore subject to more confusion, than previous generations.  As for parents who are trying to understand their kid’s world and direct them in it, the vast majority of us are playing catch up.  Not surprising, therefore, parenting teenagers today is extra challenging and we are happy to help.

Jackie Lohan C.Dip NLP/Hyp, founder of Teenacity is a Master Practitioner of NLP and a certified Hypnotherapist. Prior to professionally qualifying as teen coach and therapist in 2010, she accumulated 25 years in corporate communications working for blue chip companies at a senior level and also in retail and publishing.   Originally from the UK, she has lived in South County Dublin for 20 years with her architect husband and two teenage children - a clue to where her passion for this age group stemmed! - and is an active member in the local community.

 

"Having always   had a massive interest in the psychology of communication I had been long drawn to neuro-linguistic programming (NLP). When I started to successfully apply a lot of the learning,  I was amazed at how fast the simple techniques of NLP worked to change the things that weren't working in my life, particularly in respect of how I parented and communicated with my own kids.  What a difference!  My own success with these techniques propelled me into wanting to help other teenagers and their parents get through the challenges of these difficult years and so I went on to train with leaders in the fields of NLP, hypnotherapy, and education, relishing every moment of it. Since going into practice, seeing teens walk away with new confidence evident in their posture, demeanour and language, I thank my stars for giving me such a worthwhile and valuable direction in my career."

 

Jackie is based mainly at Link Road Glasthule Country Dublin.  She also uses therapy rooms in Kildare and can travel on request.  Telephone and Skype consultations also available.

 

Certifications:

NLP Practitioner: American University of NLP

NLP Master Practitioner, Motivation Coach, Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and Hypnotherapist: Motivation Training (UK).

Certified Conversational Hypnotherapist: Igor Ledowchowski (Holland)
