“I’ve seen Annette Du Bois at work at close quarters and she is a breath of fresh air. Annette has a unique blend of skills and tools delivered with compassion, which support and enable children to navigate their own way through tricky times.”


If you’ve tried books, pep-talks, watching online videos, joining sports clubs etc. etc. (perhaps you’ve even tried a child counsellor or child psychologist?) and still your child/teen lacks the confidence and mental tools necessary to handle any situation, then let Annette Du Bois work with them to create the tools and practical skills they need.

We guarantee you’ll see (and enjoy) the results.

  • Take back personal control
  • Restore peace in the home
  • See them improve at school and life in general
  • Get their smile back (priceless!)

“We have tried a number of ‘psychologists’ to help our son with his confidence/anxiety issues but Annette is the
only one to make a real difference and Matthew has taken a real shine to her. We are so happy to have
found Annette and Matthew relishes his time with her. Thanks Annette.”

Need Proof? Here’s a Quick Case Study:

Enquiry: A Parent got in touch with CHAMPS Academy about their teen daughter struggling with low self esteem and lacking in confidence.

Initial Process: They booked a no-obligation chat with Annette to find out more and gain some helpful reassurance. The main challenges the teen was experiencing were as follows:

  • Social anxiety around initiating conversations with peers etc.
  • Isolating (avoiding) from social groups due to fear of being judged or rejected.
  • Becoming more distracted in class (losing focus) and subsequently grades were dropping

Trial Coaching Session: As soon as Annette’s schedule allowed, a no-obligation Free Trial session was arranged with the teen, where they met Annette (on Zoom) and learn some helpful tools and distinctions at the same time.

Because Annette offers a more open and rapport building approach to her coaching, the Mum also attended to help settle her daughter’s initial apprehensions of meeting someone new, this made the whole experience relaxed and enjoyable. Giving both Parent and Teen valuable insight. At CHAMPS Academy it’s our policy to allow parents to attend/sit in on the coaching sessions, where it be the Free Trial session or any other coaching session in the process. But it’s purely optional and of course depends on if the child/teen is comfortable with their Parent being there?

Post Trial Session: Following the session Annette emails her feedback and personal evaluation of the child/teens specific needs, along with suggested coaching package for the Parent to peruse. This also gives the Parent the opportunity to ask any questions or gain further clarification.

Coaching Package: The teen (and Mum) was very satisfied with the trial session and what was covered and subsequently booked their teen on the CHAMPS Academy Teen Social Confidence 6-Week Coaching package.

The Results: Prior to the coaching starting, the parent completes a booking form, which includes our proprietary pre-coaching scoring process. This offers a helpful ‘before the coaching’ perspective. Then towards the end of the coaching sessions, a similar one is sent to the Parent to evaluate progress so far, with what objectives have ben achieved. Annette then evaluates the progression and emails the evidential progress report to the Parent.

As part of the report, the Parent can see the specific areas (see graph below) where their child has made progress and improved growth areas.

How CHAMPS Academy Coaching Measures Progress

Stop the Negativity. Get Back the Confidence

As an experienced and established Confidence Life Coach for children and teenagers, Annette deals on a daily basis with young people who struggle with confidence, anxiety, friendship issues, social anxiety, dark thoughts, self harm, anger, emotional dysregulation, school attendance, changing schools, (and other school related issues), exam stress, negative thoughts, lacking in motivation, peer pressure, body image, self-belief, and many other modern day issues young people experience.

But in a strange way, these are the lucky ones – because their parents understand that they have psychological setbacks, chokeholds and issues, and have taken steps to address them which will hopefully put their children or teen on the right path.

It’s such a concern that many parents are inadvertently unaware of their child/teen problems, (or they think they’ll grow out of it?) because without the proper interventions, giving them the skills and strategies to cope with the pressures of growing up, they will without doubt carry these limiting thought patterns through their school years, getting less and less confident as they get older. Or they develop deeper psychological issues?!

They will not grow out of it, more likely to grow into it!

Recent research has also shown parents underestimate their children’s confidence and miss the crucial negative impact that even traditionally nerve-wracking occasions, like starting a new school, performing in public or taking an exam, have on their kid’s confidence.

Not to mention the severe negative impact the Pandemic has had on today’s young people.

But this does NOT have to happen to your child/teen… because CHAMPS Academy can help you.

When Annette works with your child/teen you can expect the following:

  • A BIG Boost in Self-Esteem
  • Noticeable Increase in Self Confidence
  • They’ll Control Their Thoughts and Inner Chat
  • Communicate with Assertiveness, Respect and Clarity
  • And So MUCH More Too!
