LIFE COACHING FOR KIDS
ABOUT GIDDY LIFE COACHING
"An honorary PH.D in happiness coaching should be bestowed upon Cinda. She has done so much for our daughter. She has managed to dilute social media’s influence on our child – and you can’t put a price on that. She exudes kindness. Our daughter is kinder, more confident, and happier after working with Cinda. Our daughter’s goal-setting mindset and communication style is elevated exponentially every time she has the opportunity to meet with Cinda. We consider ourselves blessed to have Cinda in our daughter’s life as a role-model, mentor, and coach."
"Lucinda is making such an incredible impact on the kids she works with, changing lives for years down the road in a way that coaches and teachers rarely get the opportunity to do."
"These sessions with Cinda have been amazing for our daughter - she comes out of them with a sense of calm that I haven't seen before."
"Lucinda made an astonishing difference for my daughter during a very difficult time during her Covid isolation. Lucinda was able to harness my daughter’s love of art and create a world of confidence and enjoyment for her. She looked forward to every meeting and was filled with happiness after each session which was transforming for her world. Lucinda is truly an amazing mentor for my 13-year-old daughter and we are grateful to have her in our lives."
"Cinda has been an amazing resource for my 17-year-old daughter as she navigates the pressures of school and sports. She has helped her process her anxiety and given her tools to manage future challenges. Cinda has helped her discover her inner strength and a positive perspective. She has taught her the power of her own mindset and attitude. Cinda is an incredible coach and resource for young women as they exist in a stressful and unpredictable world."
The story behind Giddy by Nature mentorship program:
Growing up, I had learning differences. I started retreating in the classroom and dreading school. I became unsure of myself and in my abilities until I went to a school that addressed the ways that I learned differently. Through addressing and acknowledging my learning style at a young age, I was able to excel in the school setting thereafter and, more importantly, feel more myself and content with outside-the-box learning styles.
My parents, siblings, grandparents/cousins (on both sides) are all in education. I grew up on boarding school campus in Delaware that stretched over 2,000 acres of corn fields. My parents were intentional about creating educational spaces in organic settings - playing soccer with high-school boys as a 3rd grader…eating Cheerios at the kitchen table as a 6th grader with my mom's advisees. My parents infused both education and play throughout my childhood — so I grew a strong work ethic while having fun still getting dirty. I love to work with kids and create these educational spaces in natural settings.
In college, I had to take a year off at the peak of my lacrosse career with an illness that made me bed ridden; after visiting over 10 doctors the summer before my senior year, no one could figure out what was going on; because of this debilitating fatigue and sickness, I returned to Brown a year later, but was still not well enough to play lacrosse in college again. Through this difficult experience I became committed to living an authentic, holistic life even if that looks different than my peers. When lacrosse, my friends, and school became inaccessible, I had to reassess how I identified myself and what made me happy. This adversity ultimately created more opportunities in creating a meaningful and sustainably happy life.
