Hi, I’m Delia! If your daughter is struggling with low self-esteem and a lack of confidence, and no matter how much you try to encourage her, it doesn't seem to help, let’s talk!
As a mother of two teenage girls, I've experienced these challenges first-hand so I have created fun and engaging programs to help girls believe in themselves, make good life decisions, and go after their dreams. Not only that, but I have tested all my programs thoroughly with my own daughters, so I can attest to just how effective they are!
Imagine if you could give your daughter the tools and resources to develop powerful self-esteem and unstoppable self-confidence so she feels worthy, happy, and prepared to lead a wonderful life… Wouldn’t that be something?

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.

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.

I have been involved in transformation for the past 25 years. My coaching technique centers on the ontology (Being) of a person and getting to their source or story (or “What Happened”). One’s interpretation is critical as it opens up the way to authenticity and a new creation of “What’s Possible”.
I am a certified WISDOM Coach for Kids. I work with kids, through stories, to build authentic relationships with families and empower them in their lives.
Families are always committed to work-ability!

My name is Anne Rotschi. I am an engineer, a credentialed ACC coach and a certified WISDOM Coach.
My purpose is to support kids, who we know are the leaders of tomorrow, and who will continue to build peace in this world. Up to this point, I have been coaching executives in the Oil & Gas industry. I often come across adults who have lost their self-confidence after being fired. Those experiences made me realize that it is difficult, as a grown-up, to deal with self-limiting beliefs and road blocks. The younger you become aware of this, the easier it is to work on it and to move forward in your desired direction.
As a kid, I have personally experienced helplessness and lack of self-esteem. I wish I had followed the Adventures in Wisdom program as a kid.
I am French and I am happily married with a 4 years old daughter.
My clients are mainly French children who particularly need to grow their self-confidence.

Possessing self-awareness will help your child tune into her emotions (developing her Emotional Intelligence) and help her respond appropriately to different social situations.
Shine Thru’s main focus is to empower girls with growth mindset tools and transformative life skills to develop, within themselves, healthy self-esteem, positive self-confidence and strong self-efficacy to live their lives with courage, freedom and love. As parents we cannot give these qualities to our children, but we can certainly take steps to help them to develop them within themselves.
By participating in Shine Thru Life Coaching Programs, your child will gain a deeper understanding of her own self, character, values, and purpose in life. She will also be more aware of her limitless potential and what actions steps she can take every day, to make her big dreams come true and enjoy a healthy and happy life.
I welcome you to meet with me to discuss your child’s unique needs or to get in touch for more information on one-on-one coaching, small group coaching, workshops and special packages available.
With love and gratitude,

Rakiya Bello Aliyu
I have worked for over 15 years in the corporate world, reaching managerial level in both London and Nigeria in the Financial and Marketing and Sales sectors. I have worked with clients across different sectors such as Telecommunications, top Hotel chains, Health, Education, Infrastructure and Governments as well as Fortune 200 companies and C-class executives. My passion is to work with people, listening, understanding and figuring out why we do the things we do. I have always had particular passion for children and education. I am drawn to the vulnerability and lack of inhibitions children possess as well as the power of their love and ability to forgive again and again.
I began researching educational systems and considered what works, what doesn’t and why. This lead me to management consulting and training programs in self-development. With a growing interest in holistic education and child development after my son was born, I began searching for a coaching program where I could incorporate my love for children, education and interest in mentoring in a fun, simplistic and creativite way. I found the perfect program in the Adventures in Wisdom Life Coaching program.
In Nigeria, I was a very shy kid and I have always been compassionate towards the those who are excluded, different and insecure. My wish is for everyone to feel a belonging in this world, realize their power and their limitless potential. AIW programs teaches life skills so kids can reach their potential, this resonates with me at a very high level.
I want so much for my son and other children to excel, so I founded Inner Treasure Kids Life Coaching Ltd. supporting children 6-18, in living their full potential and preparing them for the 21st century world. My programs have a holistic approach as we nurture children mentally, physically, emotionally and socially using the Adventures in Wisdom curriculum. I also support parents in creating the best environment for their kids to thrive and to look after themselves so they can give their best to their kids. The Inner Treasure‘s Program also includes teaching kids to be compassionate and involved citizens of the world, teaching entrepreneurial skills and encouraging kids to develop healthy habits.
I conduct one-on-one sessions, workshops and small groups.
Cape Town, South Africa
I am passionate about family, children and youth of South Africa, people, life coaching, tennis, sports, books, learning and development. I am the wife of a great sportsman who achieved at the highest level. I am a mother of a son and daughter who secured International scholarships for sport through UK and US Universities. I play Premier league Tennis.
After 30 years in a stressful, corporate work environment, including senior positions, I made the choice to reinvent myself and to lead an energized, inspired and passionate life. My goal is to coach kids to ensure critical life skills for developing strong self-esteem, powerful self-confidence, overcoming challenges (i.e. fear, disappointment, change), a vision for their lives and achieving their goals.
Coaching packages typically involve four to six sessions (+ -1 hour each) and can be delivered one-on-one or as a small group session, such as per sports team or class.
Bwalya was an inquisitive child, always asking questions and, more often than not, she did not get the answers she was seeking. It took many years for her to discover and learn that most of these answers were already within her.
Bwalya has a career that spans from economic development and financial inclusion projects to working on women and youth empowerment. The most rewarding work she has ever done was when she mentored 13-18 year olds under the British Council’s International Climate Champions Programmme. Bwalya later set up a creativity camp with the help of her now teenage daughter. The camp is for children aged 4-14 and is called Artistic Thursday.
Now, a certified WISDOM Coach, Bwalya runs weekly creative camps. She helps young people to trust and be guided by their inner compass and find the answers within to the questions they are seeking. Bwalya also conducts one-on-one coaching sessions with young people, which offers a safe, happy and creative environment to allow children to realize their potential, creating tomorrow’s leaders today.

Mokopane, limpopo, South Africa
My intention is to be an expert archer as I point every child in the right direction, to set them up and hit a bull’s eye for a successful life.
As the founder of Grow for Glory, I am committed to fun, but with a purpose. In life, our commitments can make us or destroy us, either way... they will define us. If we are serious about training up our children in the ways they should go, doesn’t it make sense to teach them from a young age to set achievable goals and overcome disappointments? Coaching life skills that intentionally and purposefully help a child commit to a life of happiness is our responsibility.
A talent is something that you are born with that gives rise to your unique skills and abilities. Talent is set apart from knowledge in that it is not a learned characteristic, although it can be strengthened and practiced. Every behavior is motivated by a belief, and every action is prompted by an attitude. Our loving Lord wants us to feel whole and complete, and it is through our talents that we can find our unique calling in life! (Prov. 22:29)

Jeddah Saudi Arabia
I live in Jeddah Saudi Arabia and I am a mother of 3 beautiful boys. I started my journey with Kids Life Coaching when I felt that my 7-year-old boy was acting up in school.
Later on, I realized that he was influenced negatively by his peers and I didn't know how to deal with it, so I started searching or answers and ended up realizing the working with a coach was the best way to help him. I decided to become a Certified WISDOM Coach with Adventure in Wisdom because they use an awesome method in connecting with kids. After hearing positive feedback from my son's school, I wanted to help other parents and children. I am really enjoying coaching kids and helping families! I am passionate about this work and looking forward to coaching more and morekids.
