Year 11 & 12 Students 2018
Strong Mental Health is the key to PEAK performance
Mindset Strength Training teaches students to achieve peak performance and persevere through difficult circumstances. A way to help achieve the highest level of success for Year 12 students, is by conditioning the mind to empower the students to push through challenging situations and to manage anxiety along the way.
The misconception about mental health is if you are not suffering from a mental illness, you must be OK. Students deserve to be more than just OK!!! Students are encouraged academically to succeed, physically to remain healthy and today we can support their mental health too. Mental health coaching supports their mind through the most challenging year of their life. Boosting their mental strength plays an enormous role in achieving success as it improves the necessary mental skills to excel in stressful situations.

The distinguishing feature of geniuses is their passion and dedication to their craft, and particularly, the way in which they identify, confront, and take pains to remedy their weaknesses. (Good, Rattan, & Dweck, 2008).
MEANING … It’s not always what you start with that matters;
it’s your mindset that matters…
Manage Performance Anxiety
Performance anxiety is common around exam time with Year 12 students. The physical and psychological distress on a student who does not know how to handle the mind can be debilitating. The ability to normalise nervousness and calm the mind in times of anxiety is essential for achieving success.
The Victim Mentality
The victim mentality is easily justified in the mind and often shows up in the form of blame. The victim mentality is not a sign of weakness, it is a conditioned thought that can be changed. Looking to other people to determine how we feel, hands over all emotional power to someone else.
Power of the Prefrontal Cortex
The prefrontal cortex allows you to think about thinking and understand the connection between your thoughts and your emotions. This part of the brain is responsible for decision making, moderating social behaviour, supports mental health and personality expression.
Mindset Training clears the mind to focus on what matters
Students should not have to go it alone... it takes a team to ACHIEVE success
Clean thinking plays a major role in achieving peak performance. Meditating helps declutter thoughts to concentrate on what is important to achieve success. But meditation is not practical when you are about to sit in an exam. I teach the students ways to think differently about stress and anxiety. The students will be equipped with ways that work for them to achieve their goals.
When a student says, “I don’t think I can” – that will be their outcome achieved. Mindset Training changes these words to “I can and I will”.
Isn’t this what you want for your students?
Why do students need Mindset Training?
According to the Black Dog Institute, one in four adolescents show signs of anxiety and stress. Working on mental health helps prevent mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety. The World Health Organisation defines mental health as “s state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.” Mindset Conditioning develops a growth mindset and supports the mental health of the students.
What is the Mindset Training Thought Management Program about?

There is a topic for every teenager…
