Coaching gives us superpowers

With Clayful, students get strategies for navigating emotions, reframing unhelpful thoughts, & fostering relationships

Check out examples below

Example #1
Navigating emotions: Anger

We aren’t always taught how to deal with anger — a totally normal, sometimes helpful human emotion.

Often, when we feel angry, we are told our anger is a problem — but it’s not…

The problem is what we do when we’re angry.

By pressing pause we can make the choices we actually want to make -  not the ones driven by anger.

In a Coaching session, students will go through the 10 strategies for pressing pause and staying in control.

Example #2 
Reframing unhelpful thoughts: Shame

Feelings of shame and self-doubt have always been common - especially in students.

But living in today’s digital world both amplifies their volume & their impact on our mental wellness.

Shifting the narrative - and telling ourselves a different story - can make all the difference.

In a Coaching session, students are invited to notice the stories they tell themselves -- and change the ones that are untrue, harmful, and creating shame.

Example #3
Fostering relationships:  Apologizing

All relationships crack in some way.

The secret to happy & healthy relationships is what happens after the crack.

The good news is relationships can be repaired --- and it all starts with an apology.

In a Coaching sessions, students use this tool to repair a crack in a relationship (and make it even stronger than it was before).
