Build Effective Communication Skills with our Communication Coaching

Skills For Life Academy Communication Workshop & Coaching

Welcome to the Skills for Life Academy's transformative course on Empowering Communication, a comprehensive program designed specifically for parents of young adults. We understand the unique challenges and dynamics that exist within parent-child relationships, and our aim is to empower you, the parent, and your young adult to cultivate open and effective lines of communication.

Communication lies at the heart of every relationship, shaping connections, understanding, and growth. However, in the fast-paced and often chaotic world we live in, it is easy for communication to become strained, superficial, or even confrontational. This course is designed to address these common pitfalls and equip you with the tools and knowledge needed to navigate conversations with authenticity, empathy, and respect.  Together, we will embark on a 12-week journey that will empower you to shed your masks, embrace authenticity, and communicate with genuine openness.

Our 12 Week Communication Program

Week 1

Unmasking Your True Identity

In this Week, you will delve deep into self-discovery, exploring who you are when uninterrupted. We often find ourselves wearing masks in our interactions, conforming to societal expectations and avoiding conflict. By peeling away these layers, you will reconnect with your authentic self and learn to communicate from a place of honesty and vulnerability.

Week 2

Understanding NLP Meta Programs and Behavioral Profiles

Building on the foundation of authentic communication, this week introduces you to basic Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) meta programs and behavioural profiles. By understanding the underlying patterns that shape the behaviour and thinking of others, you will gain insights into why some individuals may struggle to understand you. This knowledge will enhance your ability to adapt your communication style and bridge the gap between diverse perspectives.

Week 3

Identifying and Managing Triggers

This week, we focus on identifying personal triggers that hinder effective communication. By recognising and understanding these triggers, you will gain the tools needed to prevent them from derailing conversations. Through practical exercises and techniques, you will learn how to respond rather than react, fostering healthier and more constructive communication dynamics.

Week 4

Healing Childhood Wounds and Breaking Barriers

Childhood experiences can significantly impact our communication styles and relationships. In this week, we address any lingering wounds from your past that may be influencing your present communication patterns. By exploring these issues, you will be able to heal old wounds, break down emotional barriers, and cultivate a more nurturing and empathetic approach to communication.

Week 5

Establishing Healthy Boundaries

Effective communication requires clear boundaries. This week, we guide you through the process of establishing and maintaining healthy boundaries that both parties can respect. By setting these boundaries, you will create an environment where open dialogue and mutual understanding can flourish.

Week 6

Boosting Self-Confidence and Self-Esteem through Communication

Communication is a powerful tool for fostering self-confidence and self-esteem. In this week, you will learn how to uplift and empower each other through positive and supportive communication techniques. By nurturing self-worth and encouraging self-expression, you will cultivate an environment where both parents and young adults can thrive.

Week 7

Reconnecting with Your Authentic Self

To communicate authentically, we must first reconnect with our inner selves. This week guides you through the process of rediscovering your authentic self and aligning your communication with your true values and aspirations. By embracing your unique essence, you will forge more meaningful connections with others.

Week 8

Embracing Your Inner Child

Remember that time in your life when everything seemed possible, and limitations were non-existent? In this week, you will reconnect with your inner child, reigniting a sense of curiosity, creativity, and playfulness. By integrating this joyful spirit into your communication, you will foster an environment that encourages exploration, growth, and mutual understanding.

Week 9

Taming Your Inner Voice

Our inner voice can often be our harshest critic, stifling our confidence and hindering effective communication. In this week, you will learn techniques to tame and reframe your inner voice, transforming it into a supportive and encouraging cheerleader. By quieting your self-doubt, you will become a more resilient and confident communicator.

Week 10

Enhancing Self-Awareness

Self-awareness is a crucial element of effective communication. This week explores strategies to deepen your self-awareness, enabling you to recognise your own biases, triggers, and communication patterns. By becoming more attuned to your own thoughts and emotions, you will enhance your ability to communicate with empathy, understanding, and authenticity.

Week 11

The Art of Asking Non-judgmental Questions

Asking insightful questions is a powerful tool for understanding others' perspectives. In this Week, you will learn the art of asking non-judgmental questions that facilitate open and constructive dialogue. By fostering an environment of curiosity and empathy, you will gain a deeper understanding of the thoughts and emotions underlying the experiences of those around you.

Week 12

Consolidating Your Skills

In the final week, we bring together all the lessons and skills you have acquired throughout the course. We tailor the format to suit your individual needs, ensuring that your communication lines with your young adult are not just open but thriving. By implementing the tools and techniques you have learned, you will forge lasting and authentic connections with your loved ones.

I recently completed the Better Second Half Program and I am now a better leader of my own life.


I have far greater laity and focus on what I want to achieve and how I am going to achieve that. In one word I feel so much more empowered in my own life.


I would highly recommend this program to anyone that wants to take control of their second half.
