Event Details

Anxiety is now the biggest mental health issue affecting Scottish teenagers.  And it doesn't just affect the teenager, it affects everyone who cares for that teenager; parents, siblings, teachers and anyone else who wants the best for them.

Teenage anxiety has a direct link to self harm, addiction issues, behavioural difficulties, trouble at school, friendship and social issues and, without the right tools, parents, teachers and anyone that works with teenagers regularly can feel powerless to help, support and make it better.

It doesn’t need to be like that.

The teenage mind is not as complex as it may first appear.  From the outside looking in, the teenage brain behaves like a complex, bizarre, entirely random generator of bad choices!  But we promise it isn’t!  It is much more simple than that.

Inside every teenager there are two huge questions that influence every decision that teenager makes.   As parents, it is our job to make sure they get the right answers.

In this intriguing, informative and fun talk, Trainer, Speaker, Teen Expert and author of Cracking The Teen Code, Brian Costello will take you through the building blocks of creating a teenager, help you decode what’s going on right now so that you can understand the internal processes driving them to do crazy things and then show you how you already have everything you need to help steer them back on to a path that, even though you may not believe us, they aren’t as far away from as you think.

In only 2 hours you will be expertly guided to understand;

  • Why everything changes when they hit high school
  • The 2 Teen Questions that change everything about how teenagers behave
  • How to make change happen using psychology rather than discipline
  • How fear often disguises itself and why there is no point in getting mad at it
  • The simple change to your thinking that creates calm from chaos

This is a jam-packed two hours and it is the perfect workshop for parents, teachers*, youth workers, Classroom Assistants and anyone who wants to understand the teenage mind better.  It is also 100% suitable for teenagers although please be aware that there may be some adult language involved at times during the workshop.

Calming Teenage Anxiety is on the 28thApril and runs from 10am to 12pm in the DoubleTree Hotel on Cambridge Street, Glasgow.  Tickets are only £10 for adults and £5 for teenagers which means you can change your whole family for about the same price as a cinema trip.  We don’t have popcorn but we do have plenty of very reasonably priced parking at the hotel.

We hope to see you there and give you everything you need to start putting things back together.

*Teachers: this is 2 hours of CPD!

Headstrong have been helping people change since 2007, assisting people from Glasgow to Buenos Aires and Perth to Auckland, make the changes they are desperate for. 

When we started, our mission was really simple; help people be the best version of themselves. Our mission is still exactly the same today and now we have so many more ways to do it than we did way back then! 

As the home of top Mind Expert and author Brian Costello, who's work has been featured on national TV, Radio and numerous national newspapers and magazines, HeadStrong have developed a range of interventions that combine the best of Brian's knowledge and expertise in psychology, NLP, hypnosis, coaching and personal empowerment techniques.  

Brian first studied NLP and hypnosis in 2003 and it was the incredible personal changes he made in his own life, changes he made by using the techniques and skills he now teaches and utilises, that changed his focus from one of corporate success to one of helping as many people as he could to change and help them change really, really quickly. It is this personal investment that makes Brian such a passionate trainer and coach, he had experienced it. He knows what it is like to change your life. 

This meant that, in 2007, after 4 years of developing and studying the world of NLP and personal change, Brian left a successful corporate career with Barclays Wealth that, by this point, had him working as a part of a groundbreaking team of project managers managing projects across the UK and Europe, and HeadStrong was born. 

Since those early days, Brian's work has now seen him help countless individuals with personal issues and challenges, speak at incredible events across the country and train, coach and consult with major companies such as Axa Insurance, Glasgow City Council, Razzamataz Theatre Schools, DMC Fitness, Barclays Wealth, RBS, Sellafield Ltd and many more. 

In 2011 Brian teamed up with Steve Burns, another exceptional NLP coach and trainer and developer of the awesome Guide to Social Confidence, and created the Scottish Centre of NLP, a training organisation dedicated to delivering exceptional NLP and personal development training. In the short time since the Centre started they have trained some of the most awesome and exciting NLPers in the country, brought Master Trainers of NLP such as Owen Fitzpatrick to Scotland as part of their Master Practitioner Program and are creating a new standard for integrity, knowledge and application of NLP.

One of the personal changes NLP made to Brian's life was the help it gave in finally dealing with the after effects of bullying that he experienced in school. Experiencing just now quickly years of baggage could shift meant that, as soon as he learned NLP, he wanted to take it into schools and make sure that no one else needed to wait until 30 years old to make sense of those teenage years. 

HeadStrong's Teen Coaching and the range of School Programmes, such as Aspire To Success, are one of the most exciting areas of HeadStrong at the moment and, if you are a teacher or parent, we urge you to check out the pages we have dedicated to these things for more details any how this all works. 

And now, as you read this, we are now a small team, our range of services and ways of helping is growing and our reputation is growing almost entirely through word of mouth and our mission is still the same; to help everyone be the best version of themselves. That includes you.
