Confidence Speaks is an effective and unique program created by a certified Cognitive Behavioral Therapist/Self Awareness expert who has been studying and working with youth on and off for 25 years.
There are Two Workshops:
Groups of 30-80 Middle School students 4.5 hours
Groups of 10-30 Middle School students 3.5 hours (activity time is decreased by 30 mins as well as discussion time)
This workshop (2 sessions) implements proven techniques with intentional strategies, in order to get effective results.
The workshop creates a positive approach to self-awareness as the youth are propelled to identify and embrace the positive attributes within themselves (and others), build trust and acceptance with others, and maximize their awareness into belief. The students engage in 1:1 and group conversations (with intention based questions), and activities that create a comfortable, fun, and positive atmosphere for the youth to partner together, and validate one another.
The workshop results in the youth realizing everyone, including themselves, has positive attributes in them, and when they focus on the authentic version of themselves, it increases self-esteem, self-worth, and self-confidence... helping them live up to their full potential!
This workshop can be condensed into 1 session at 3.5 hours, or the longer (original structure) of 2 weeks 1 hr/2 x week, and altered for Christian students.
Session 1:1 (60 mins) - The workshop begins with an enthusiastic introduction of me, a breakdown of what to expect, and some fun warm up movements to stimulate the body/mind.
We then gather in a large group to participate in intentional related discussion/questions, that are used as a basis for positive self-awareness, and the proceeding activites. This is all done with an enthusiastic approach.
Session 1:2 (90 mins) - The students are uniquely assigned to partners or groups to engage in fun activities, that implement all or some of the programs core selected 20 positive adjectives. Techniques are introduced here, as a foundation for session 2. The students will also be given a short writing assignment about the positive adjectives.
Session 2:1 (30 mins) - Intro to second part of the workshop, some fun warm up movements to stimulate the body/mind, and then we gather in a large group to participate in intentional related discussion/questions.
Session 2:2 (90 mins) - The students are uniquely assigned to partners or groups to engage in fun activities, that energetically implement all or some of the programs core selected 20 positive adjectives. They bond, encourage one another, and begin to develop trust. The students will be required to implement some of what was learned in a timed short speach.
Heather's signature talk, Utilize the Greatness Within takes a proactive approach to educate the youth about positive self-awareness; she reflects on the advantages to recognize and embrace the positive attributes in themselves and others, and how to utilize positive self talk, in order to rise up against negativity and be secure in their authentic selves.

For 25 years now, my passion is STILL the youth...with a side of self-awareness!
After a challenging childhood from emotionally and physically detached parents, being raised by my grandparents, and being bullied by my 4th grade teacher and older classmates, I experienced feeling alone, rejected, unloved, insecure, fearful, and ugly.
For two decades, I (unknowingly) suppressed these emotions/feelings which led to conditions of co-dependancy, anxiety, low self-esteem, low self-worth and low confidence and great consequences manifested, including getting pregnant at a young age, out of wedlock.
I entered into Jr. College (1994) and quickly learned my passion for the youth. I soon received my Child Development certification, conducted child observation reports, and went on to teach, mentor, counsel, and volunteering in public, private, and Church's.
It wasn't until 2013, when an unexpected painful event occured that caused me to address the fact, I'd been suppressing emotions for 24 years. I took the initiative to deep dive into my emotional/mental health, completing many self healing programs and receiving 3 counseling certifications, including PCIT (Parent/Child Interactive Therapy), Child Counseling, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
In 2019, I intertwined my education, knowledge and experience and created Confidence Speaks for youth and also have a personal development company called Walking in Peace.
I am now COMMITTED to sharing my knowledge to help the youth be proactive and assertive with replacing any doubt, confusion, insecurities and/or fear with them acknowledging their positive attributes within; knowing they have power in them, to rise up against negativity!
