Struggling with a painful issue or painful behavioral pattern, are now changed, and have overcome that pattern.
Angry, mean or selfish are now kind, caring and family oriented.
Screen-addicted, are now living happy, responsible, well-balanced lives.
Constantly fighting with their siblings (or parents) are now using their new tools to bring love and harmony to the home.
Avoidant, lazy or shut down are now engaging and sharing.
Defiant and out-of-control are now obeying their parents and being honest and loving.
Using drugs and vaping are now sober and have self-control.
If your child/teen is refusing to go to sessions, refuses to go to therapy.
...Refuses to do the inner work so they can replace their negative patterns with good, healthy ones.
About 50% of the teenagers we work with are described this way. And our success rate is close to 100%. Read our Yelp reviews if you don't believe me.
There is a lot you can do.
If you'd like your child to get help or experience coaching with us...
book a private 1:1 parent coaching session with Sean or contact Sean for a free consult call.
We accept clients ages 9-25.
The majority of your clients are aged 13-20.
You will get a "Short Update Email" (or text) from your child's Coach after each session.
The Coach will provide a short description of what was discussed in the session, and/or what toolsissues they are working on.
Why do we do this?
We believe in parents. We love and honor parents. We believe that parents are the most important and powerful people in a child's life.
You can trust the Coach to never disrespect or dishonor you, the parent.
It would be unhelpful for the Coach to share your child's private, personal information with you, or anyone.
If the Coach did this, and if your child found out, their trust would be violated. Trust would be broken and the coaching relationship would likely end...
..and your child would probably never trust a therapist or Coach ever again.
Our Coaches are highly trained and very wise. We enjoy keeping parents in the loop, but will never cross that line.
Think of it this way...
A Coach's job IS TO get a child/teen to talk and open up to them. To do the hard work of growing.
It's NOT their job to be a tattle-tell or a middleman.
A Coach's job IS TO teach and empower the child/teen to talk to their parents. To open up to them.
If you child opens up to their Coach, the coach will then empower, educate and inspire the child to tell their parents. This is normal and healthy.
And if it's very dangerous or bad, and the child refuses to tell the parent, the coach will solve this problem wisely so the parents are in the loop.
In challenging situations like defiance, screen addiction, acting out, substances, sibling aggression or many others, the parents must be involved in this process...and must changes needed changes.
The parents of your clients may be invited or encouraged to schedule a private Parent Session so that they can get the personalized tools they need to better help their child, and break the painful patterns.
We use email and texts to set up sessions, confirm payments and send short update emails.
We do not coach, teach or advise via email or text.
If a parent would like advice or strategies or new tools so they can better help their child, grow as a parent, or learn the tools to break a painful behavioral pattern, the parent is welcome to book a private Parent Coaching session.
We do not accept insurance.*
Yes, you can pay with an HSA card on our website.
We do not provide refunds for unused prepaid sessions. No expectations.
Like all professionals, we use a 24/hour cancellation policy.
*Because coaching has become so popular, some insurance companies will reimburse your costs. We can provide a recoept or invoice if you need one. We do not provide codes.
While PMT Teen Coaching has a lot of similarities with traditional therapy, there are some profound differences.
✔︎ Your child meets with a highly skilled and educated specialist field
✔︎ Your child feels safe. They are invited to open up to talk and share their personal life, their pain points, their struggles...and their joys, successes and passions.
✔︎ The experience is very intimate. the adult will listen with kindness, empathy and connection.
✔︎ PMT Coaching focuses on giving young people tools. High level EQ tools that they use to solve their problems and poor behavior.
We don't just listen to kids talk about their painful lives, blame others, (or blame themselves) for their struggles or sit in their negative condition. We empower kids with the strategies, support and EQ tools they need to positively change their life and break their painful patterns.
✔︎ In their PMT Coaching your teen will be given a powerful EQ assessment and will receive a fun and positive personality assessment.
✔︎ We make every session fun and interesting. This is NOT your child sitting down with a therapist who asks them, "What do you want to talk about today?" No way! We don't do that. We have a structured approach of tools, process and fun. There is a personal vibe to our work with teens. (This is why we are rated #1 on Yelp!)
✔︎ In PMT coaching, your teen will not just talk. Or vent. We have life-changing activities that engage teenagers, capture their attention, and educate them with tools.
✔︎ PMT Coaching focuses on the present and the future. We don't dwell on the past, and instead them to create a heal, positive future. We don't specialize in trauma or kids who have been traumatized in their past.
✔︎ Victim or Victor? Here at PMT we teach kids how to become a Victor over their painful struggles...and to not stay in victim mentality.
✔︎ We call ourselves Coaches. We are not therapists.
We developed a unique and powerful approach to supporting young people, and for most, it's something better.
-Sean Donohue, Founder
"Our PMT Coach gave our daughter great tools and skills to better love herself, believe in herself, set boundaries for herself, and respect herself. He also gave my husband and me great tools for holding her accountable for her actions and attitude."
"Therapy didn't work. It didn't give us tools. Coaching did. We got the TOOLS we needed, and our lives changed!"
"My COACH was a constant mentor - steering me away from murky waters and leading me in the way of honor, wisdom and maturity."
""My teen and I were on a very difficult path. Our PMT Coach pushed her in ways that I couldn't, and now she is a joy to be around. There was a 180º turnaround in her behavior and attitude."
"Learning to properly communicate emotions is an amazing life skill that I can now say I have been developing thanks to PMT. I am thankful for the many tools taught to me."
