Hi, my name is Carole and I am here to SUPPORT children and tweens and improve their SELF-BELIEF, SELF-ESTEEM and SELF-LOVE so they can better cope with self-confidence (or lack of), friendship changes, body appreciation (or lack of), bullying, individuality, dealing with anger, feeling lonely etc…

As a mum of a tween myself, just like you, I care about young people, their wellbeing and their future. We know though how challenging some situations can be for them, be it at school, on social media / screens or at home. I believe resilience and strength will help them face the world, and gratitude and compassion will give them a sense of appreciation.

I am also here to SUPPORT you as a parent, grand-parent or carer. If you need help guiding your child through the obstacles she faces at the moment, or if you would like her to develop new friendships, or to be encouraged to physically move, think positively or become more mindful, all in a friendly, non-competitive and non-clinical environment, the Standing Strong program and I can help.

It takes a village, a community, to raise a child; doing it on your own can be really challenging. You are NOT alone.

Through my School Term, Workshops and Mentoring programs, my purpose is to empower children and tweens to live HEALTHY, HAPPY and INSPIRED lives.

I look forward to meeting you and your girls.

Wellness Coaching

What is a Wellness Coach?

As a Wellness coach I will support you to take small steps in the areas of fitness, nutrition, weight management, health risk and stress management as well as educate, encourage and guide you towards healthy lasting behaviours. Coaching is a partnership, a collaboration, a relationship that will provide inspiration, structure and accountability to help you achieve your goals more effectively.

Why is Wellness coaching important?

We all need to create empowering life long strategies around diet, exercise, stress management, health maintenance and disease prevention. It is about becoming aware of and making choices for a more satisfying lifestyle. A wellness lifestyle includes a self-defined balance of health habits: adequate sleep, rest, and good nutrition; productivity and exercise; participation in meaningful activity; and connections with people and communities that are supportive. This is about improving your life and the life of people around you.

Who can benefit from Wellness coaching?

Anyone who feels that they have not reached their “best” yet. Anyone who struggles with weight or fitness issues, or with creating a better work/life balance, or with reducing overall stress. However, coaching is not therapy. If you feel the need for counselling or therapy, please speak to your doctor.

Bonjour Wellness in the news

What our members are saying

Meryl, Mum of Carlyn

Our daughter attended two of Carole‘s online Tween, Standing Strong groups – over 2 terms.  During COVID-19 lockdown, it was so well-timed and beneficial!  She so looked forward to every week – and would definitely have continued with the physical attendance if it had been possible (We are in VIC and Carole is in QLD). 

The program is fantastic for girls in that age group, supporting and empowering them for life as a Teen – and having so much fun in the process.  Carole is an absolute natural, so genuine, caring and motivating, connects so well with the girls and I couldn’t recommend her and the Standing Strong program highly enough!

Thanks Carole – you are a gem!!!!  Carlyn definitely had so many takeaways from your programs – self-esteem, resilience, friendship tools, and moving a little during lockdown!!

Mum – Montessori participant

Our daughter has loved the program, hanging out with her friends and getting to know each other better. She found the topics interesting, informative and enjoyable to discuss with a small group. I would definitely recommend the program to other mums. It is a safe space for girls to express themselves as well as learn more about themselves and develop skills to deal with life’s challenges

Deena, Wellness client

Carole has been an inspirational part of my life for a while now. She has provided guidance and motivation that has helped me kick start my health and fitness journey and is one of the most positive and kind people I know. I would recommend Carole to anyone wanting a tailored and thoughtful approach.

Mum – Montessori participant

Our daughter has lots of feelings at the moment and is experiencing social drama and thoughts on body development. Hearing other girls her age share the same thoughts and feelings in a safe space helped her to realise what she is thinking, experiencing and feeling is completely normal (I have told her hundred times but to hear it from peers is completely different)

Roseanne, Grandmother of ‘tweenie’

Standing Strong is a brilliant programme now available on the Sunshine Coast. Carole presents it perfectly. She combines knowledge, experience, passion and understanding with a generous sprinkle of humour thrown in.

As a grandmother of a ‘tweenie’ I am delighted that my grand-daughter has been able to participate in the Standing Strong programme. Living in Far North Queensland prevents her attending live sessions. However at the beginning of covid19, Carole offered a ZOOM programme!!Some fun and games during school shut-down was a bonus and my grandyre-enrolled for a 2nd round!!

I was visiting (from the Sunshine Coast) when the break up party was in progress.Carole welcomed me to the fray, I learnt a new dance move and was blown away to hear my daughter’s response to the question: “What are you grateful for today?”

Her response “My grandmother being here”.

I will never forget that moment. All this via ZOOM with Carole. So, thank you to “Standing Strong” and Carole Newton.
