I reached out to Jill when my oldest daughter was getting ready to leave for college and we were going through a painful separation process. She helped me see how much of the pain was coming from my own issues and not really what was happening with my daughter. Once I was able to focus just on my daughter and improving the connection we had it was so much easier. I wish I would have started working with Jill when my daughters were younger….but I know it is never too late to improve your relati…
My daughter (9 yrs old) and I have been seeing a child psychologist to help with her anxiety, low moods, friendship troubles, feelings of being unloved and overall resistance to everything I say. I knew if we were experiencing these issues now, we may be heading for a rough road through the teen years. Although we have made some progress with the psychologist, I still have feelings of helplessness, more questions and I feel dependent on each visit for answers. I also wonder how my daughter…
This course is amazing! In just one evening I came away with a great technique to empower my son. And, the added benefit is I feel more empowered in my life. Jill is so easy to listen to as she gives me the information I need and ways to put it to use immediately. I can see a change already! Thanks Jill.

I had the privilege of being a part of the I Shine Child Self-Esteem Bully Proof program. My daughter, at the time, was only 14 months. I was not sure how helpful it would be at such a young age, but I discovered that I was able to start with a healthy foundation for her right from the start.
Using Jill’s suggestions to encourage my daughter with what she was doing well, with clear language, such as, “You followed directions”, instead of my typical response, “Good girl”, helps my da…

In the I Shine Inner Wellness Curriculum, Jill Hope has created a resilience based educational curriculum to facilitate character building, self-esteem and self-regulation in children. This holistic program provides resources for parents as well. The nine modules are well organized in providing guidance, strategies, lesson plans and more for educators and facilitators. I will recommend the I Shine program without reservation.

I love this approach, as it’s one I use myself! I find children today are more sensitive and can sense authenticity and a lack of congruency in their ‘teachers’
Today, parents and teachers need new skills, and we need to work together to create an ethos of empowerment around young people to unleash their potential. Congratulations Jill on getting it out there, as there is not enough of us supporting families in this way.
I have started a new job… just one of the many new changes happening in my life. It all started by working your Powerful Girl Within program. My daughter is having a much better year at school. Though she still has some anxiety, her confidence with peers has improved dramatically.
My daughter and I also joined girls on the run after listening to your recording. It has been amazing. I never knew my body could run a 5k ever! Saturday is our big run and it will be a celebration of so many posit…
I am registered! When I made the payment I realized how grateful I am for this opportunity to learn how best to support my daughter. When I compare the cost of the class to what I have spent on her camps, classes, and clothes — all to make her happy, help her feel good about herself, connect with friends, feel like she fits in, etc., I realize what an excellent investment this is. The Powerful Girl Within Program is something that will long outlast a new outfit because she will wear it on the in…
One of the biggest obstacles I face when parenting my children are the influences of other children and their behavior on them. the interview series provided a lot of techniques that I can use to change this situation for the better. You have done a good job of providing information, resources and links for getting more information, and I like the fact that the interviews themselves weren’t too long, making it easy to find time to listen to them.
Jill is REALLY good at holding space for her clients. It’s her super-power. She knows how to get to the heart of the matter, objectively view it and create a solution.
I have worked with several coaches and to be honest Jill is a master at her trade. When I took Powerful Girl Within I wanted support to be a better parent and have a better relationship with my daughter. Jill taught me that relationship starts with me.
In our coaching sessions we talked about anything that I am “dealing with”…
