Research shows that teen girls are terrified of being judged. All girls want at this age is to be accepted. We share valuable tools with our girls on how to walk into a room full of strangers and start a conversation. How to make the first move and look confident even when you are feeling anxious internally.
Healthy eating and busting the sugar cravings and puberty blues. We have a dynamic nutritionist that delivers a fun and interactive session.
If you talk to any teenage girl, they will tell you that their friendships are one of their greatest areas of concern. At the start of High School, we start to see a dramatic shift in the way our girls are connecting with each other. Power struggles, rumours, bullying and the constant change in friendships causes a huge amount of anxiety and stress amongst girls. We give our girls the tools to deal with the many situations that will arise for them from Year 6 – Year 12. They are equipped with tools to move into a new circle, move out of a circle, learn how to make and maintain new friends and how to deal with toxic conflict that may arise at school.
Even if your daughter is not struggling with anxiety or depression, it is important to equip our girls with the information and tools to deal with it as they may have friends going through these struggles.
Learn about anxiety – what causes it, why does it happen and and proven ways to manage it.
The final session is all about learning to let go and use music as a way to fully express how you are feeling. When we move (even if we are not a natural dancer) we elevate how we feel about ourselves. Music therapy is a dynamic way to wrap up the day.
Our award winning programs have been given the tick of approval from the Department of Education. That is why we are the sole, content providers for the My Diary school diary’s that are distributed to just over 1.5 million Aussie school students. We are the pioneers in these courses as we launched Beautiful Minds 13 years ago. There was nothing like this back then and we have continued to grow and expand. Today, Beautiful Minds is Australia’s leading provider of educational workshops for teens, delivering sessions to thousands of teens annually.
All of our content has been created by our experts at Beautiful Minds (please see our educators page) and our team of psychologists. We work with our Board of Advisors, psychologists and parenting experts to regularly update all of our content. We also support headspace as our charity partner and this helps us ensure we are up to date on all relevant facts relating to mental health. Trusted by our International partner brands, you know your daughter is getting the best when she attends a Beautiful Minds workshop.
Tickets to our events are non transferable to another date and are non refundable. You may gift or on-sell your ticket to the registered date of the event. You are not able to get a refund for this event. If you are living in an area that becomes closed due to COVID or you are unable to cross the border to get to the venue, then we can move you into another date. If you live in any suburb and the workshop is going ahead but you choose not to attend due to COVID, you will lose your place and we will not be able to move you to another date due to changing your mind
We see incredible results from our one day courses but we at Beautiful Minds do not view them as a one day course. We set the course up as a mentoring program and then encourage all our students to stay in contact with us after the course. Students can sign up to our online program which has informative videos covering a range of topics which keeps your child feeling supported long after the course wraps up. Our educational videos act as an incredible support system for both parents and teens. We also offer after care with any of our psychologists if your child needs additional support.
With our preteen workshops, teen girl workshops, retreats, online programs and after care support, we are here to ensure we support your daughter from the age of 8 right up to when she turns 18 years of age.
We take the work we are doing at Beautiful Minds very seriously, we are dealing with young lives and so we ensure that our course plus after care options deliver outstanding results.
Yes they do. This is important to ensure we only hire and work with educators that we can trust.
Every course is overseen by our Founder Marina Passalaris who is on hand throughout every session to address any needs that arise.
This is a personal choice. We have many girls that attend our courses on their own. Yes, they are nervous at first but within the first 30 minutes, they are relaxed and loving it. It is always more fun if they attend with a friend or sibling.
To ensure of an intimate setting we take no more than 35 students per course.
Yes! You cannot put a price on having your daughter walking away from a program feeling happier and more self assured. You are setting her up for life with some incredibly valuable skills and tips. This will be the best money you ever invest in her. To compare, a one off visit with a psychologist is around $280 for an hour. Your daughter will be spending 5 hours with a team that have created a program developed for them by psychologists. The value is exceptional! On top of that, your daughter will receive a Beautiful Minds book, healthy snacks and get to take home her gorgeous dream catcher.
If we feel that a young person needs further after care and support after our courses, we will contact the parents and engage with them, discussing steps that need to be taken in order to get maximum results.
Yes. We have Public Liability Insurance coverage with a highly reputable Australian provider.
Comfortable clothing, lunch and a big smile!
