Since starting Keep Your Balance in 2020, I have seen, supported and helped all walks of life. I have worked with such beautiful, strong and inspiring people who have overcome diversity, found answers and a sense of relief.
As much as I love supporting and guiding everyone through their journey (it’s been incredible and I will still continue to do so), there is one demographic which I feel most obliged to work with more – the younger generation.
So many kids, teens and young adolescents are struggling with their mental and emotional health. It is a full-blown epidemic and it’s not getting better anytime soon. Psychologists are now being contracted to work out of high schools (this was definitely not around when I was younger) and most Counsellors and Psychologists are booked out at least 3 months in advance.
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, in 2020-21, roughly one third of people aged 16-24 years had a generalised anxiety disorder for at least 12 months. According to Suicide prevention Australia, in 2020, 454 young people aged 15-24 died by suicide. For every youth suicide, there are 100 to 200 more suicide attempts.
Our kids are not just going through the motions, they are suffering. As hard as we try as parents or carers to teach and cater to their needs, sometimes we struggle and get stuck for answers….and that is okay. There are just so many pressures and factors present in our fast-moving world.
I am confident there is more we can do.
I know Kinesiology can make a positive difference. I have seen a number of kids from as young as 5 who suffer with symptoms of anxiety, have communication, relationship and behavioural issues, sleep issues, low self-confidence and poor self-esteem, just to name a few.
Over the years, I have taught kids and young adolescents to become more self-aware, how to emotionally regulate and view their challenges from a different perspective so they can act differently. Not only this, but I use Kinesiology to assess and support their physiology. A teen’s brain has not fully developed yet, and their hormones are literally flying everywhere. Focusing on their neurological and hormonal systems as well as their mental health is crucial, sometimes this is overlooked in other modalities.
So, the reason I am emailing you to today is to ask for your support.
Do you know of a young person in your life who may be hurting?
Are there any parents in your life who are also hurting…and stuck for answers?
Together we can make a real difference to the lives of our most vulnerable.
