Erika de Wet
Kingston, Ontario, Canada
As a certified life coach with a degree in Educational Psychology, specializing in emotional and behavioral problems, adding WISDOM coaching to my credentials was a no brainer. Although I love working with adults, children and adolescents will always be my passion.
Children should feel empowered to overcome obstacles on their life paths. I want to give them a “passport” in their hand to go wherever they want to go, to know that they are worthy, that they are in control of their lives and that they can live life to the fullest. As a result, I started developing My Passport to Happiness. When I came upon The Adventures in Wisdom Program I just knew this was going to be such a part of my program and I had to get certified.
I hope that through fun filled workshops children will go away and know that they are ready to travel on their life paths, knowing that they have the skills to conquer what ever comes their way.

It is her personal mission to positively influence children’s mindsets, a cause which she is extremely passionate about. Empowering children to use the power of their mind and thoughts to create happiness, confidence and success.

Earlene is a certified WISDOM Coach, Primary Teacher, Literacy Specialist, and Mom of two. For over 10 years, she has successfully mentored and taught students inside as well as outside of the classroom. Her passion to become a children’s life coach developed when she moved back to Toronto with her children, after living in Asia for six years. “Children need help overcoming issues such as bullying, low self-esteem, self-confidence and peer pressure. They also need support embracing their culture and know how to handle changes in their life (moving to a new country, changing schools, etc.).”
As the Founder of BRILLIANT MIND – an organization built on the premise of empowering children and their parents, Earlene believes that children have the strength to own their thoughts and live brilliant lives. Her organization is focused on empowering and developing a generation of mindful, healthy, successful and confident children.
I empower Highly Sensitive Children between the ages of 7-13 to embrace their sensitivity as a gift so they can develop sustaining self-confidence. From a very early age, I felt like I didn't belong and something was wrong with me. I know now that I'm a HSP (Highly Sensitive Person). When I was young, I didn't know this label nor did I understand it. Because I was so sensitive, it led to years of bullying and being made fun of. As I grew, so did my lack of confidence.
My healing journey led me to my life’s purpose – to teach children life skills that foster self-confidence. My coaching practice is unique because I teach both intellectual and intuitive skills. With the WISDOM curriculum, I teach children how to use the power of their minds and the power of their thoughts to create self-confidence. With my REAP program I teach children how to reclaim their personal power by tapping into their intuition for daily guidance.

My name is Barbara Tomlinson; I live in Huntington Valley, PA. just outside of Philadelphia. I have been a professional puppeteer for over 28 years; I am a certified WISDOM Coach, Life Coach, Happiness Coach and a mother of three amazing grown children.
What we do at Hiccups Kid coaching is, we teach children important life skills by using puppets, stories, and music. After performing for many schools over the years, I was often approached by educators about writing shows that covered the topics of character building, bulling, self-esteem, self-confidence, integrity, gratitude and being kind, to name a few. Unfortunately, most schools no longer have time to teach these important life skills in their curriculum, and our children are often floundering to handle lifes ups and downs.
That’s when I decided to launch my business Hiccups Kids Coaching, which stands for Helping Innocent Children Cope Using Puppet Satire! All the life skills we teach are essential for children to become successful happy adults and be the best they can be! Contact me if you’re looking for one-on-one kids coaching, group coaching, workshops, or a series of character building puppet shows. At Hiccups Kid Coaching we teach kids life skills while having fun learning!

I am passionate, fun, real and trustworthy with an infectious attitude that uplifts the people
I meet. Having lived in 4 countries and having spent over 18 years in the corporate jungle, I became
a full-time certified Life Coach and accredited Neuro Linguistic Practitioner to follow my
passion for helping people. With this new-found passion for life I have coached thousands
of people over the past ten years on spirituality, emotions, relationships, health,
business/careers and finances, and I have also been training individuals to become life
coaches over the past seven years.
My dream has always to one day empower kids with the essential skills around self-
confidence, self-worth and self-love so that they can create the life they dream of and be
themselves. This is such a gap in the coaching field. I then came across the Adventures in
Wisdom program which was the answer I was looking for. I became a certified WISDOM
Coach. As a result, Be Your Truth was founded, that empowers both kids and adults to be their
authentic self and to live the life they want!
