Safe Supportive Social Media Group For Young Women

Finally, a social media group of girls/young women who actually support each other in a healthy & joyful way.

As a young Siobhan, I didn’t manage social situations very well, although, I always seemed to get along quite well with adults! I often wondered why, however, it took me years to figure it out and now I realized it was my lack of exposure to friends who were just like me!

If your daughter does not quite fit into “mainstream” social groups or in exceptionally caring & loyal, she most likely gets hurt quite a lot in the school setting and MOST IMPORTANTLY on Social Media! We all know how harmful cyber media can be. As Mothers, we have wiped the tears, offered explanations for the ruthless comments & behaviors of others, and, more than likely, we’ve had to witness otter devastation, anger & hurt when things get out of hand. With social media, it’s even harder for us to monitor what is happening online to our children.

That’s why I created this group to help girls grow into the women they will be proud to be. To give them a stable platform of friends with good intentions. To give them a chance to be confident, happy and sad together.

As for me, I am the mother of two girls. I am a psychological trauma therapist with special expertise in working with Young people in crisis intervention. My mission is to create a safe supportive space for young women to thrive by being there for them in a professionally supportive way.

If we were all the same the world would be weird! If you identify with this post & you know a young lady just like this, then this is the group for them. Click the link below to book a 30-min discovery call with me personally where we can discuss how we can support your daughter together – better!

    Hi Siobhan. Its very admirable when a lady uses her previous experience to empower young girls. This forum coupled with your profession is a unique way to help young girls in the course of modern day Internet and cube bullying that comes with it. It’s always so difficult for girls to open up when they are facing challenges and bringing mothers on board will equip them with the necessary tools to help their daughters. Please let me know if there are any platforms for giving advice and tips, I identify with your story  and though I have no children yet the girl child is very close to my heart.

      Hi Nozipho,

      Thank you so much for your genuine comments. I am so passionate about helping women reach their fullest potential. So many wonderful women have influenced me over the years, most of all my sisters and like-minded friends and educators. I truly believe in the power of the safe space for girls to hangout online. Away from abuse, predators and judgments. The healthy growth of their confidences is essential to seeing them achieve their goals.
      Thank you so much for acknowledging the little girl inside of you. We all have one who needs out guidance, support and love 💓

      Please come follow me on facebook – Siobhan Leijen – and I will invite you to some amazing platforms that I use. We are stronger together my friend.

      Thank you once again for your message *Big Hugs*

    I think this is a fantastic thing to do for young women. I know a lot of sensitive girls find it difficult to explain how they are feeling to their siblings and parents. I’m a mum to 4 girls and the second youngest falls into this category.  She would have loved something of this nature when she was younger.

      Hi Lisa,

      Thank you so much for your comments and encouragement.

      I have two young daughters myself and I want this to be here for them when they need it too. School is wonderful for children but it can be treacherous! Navigating the social norms is a challenge many of us find nerve wracking to say the least.

      My vision for this group is that it will grow to be diverse and fully accepting of all talents, hobbies, likes & dislikes. Support will be it’s middle name 🙂

      Thank you once again for taking the time to post. I really appreciate it.

      Warmest Regards,
      Siobhan Leijen

    Hello there! this is an amazing review you have got here. I am very sure the quality informations here will be of great help to anyone who come across it. As soon as my daughter arrives home from holidays, I will make sure she signs up for this; as a mother, I recommend this kind of forum for young females, who knows, someone might just be of help there to your current situation!

    Thanks for sharing this with me.

      Hi Joy,

      Thank you so much 🙂 

      I am so delighted I finally had the opportunity to get it up and running. I am just back from holidays myself and I am so encouraged by the amount of responses to my posts. I have two young daughters myself and they are my inspiration. 

      I look forward to meeting your daughter Joy.

      Hope you have an amazing day!

      Warmest Regards,

      Siobhan

    There wasn’t one thing I didn’t truly enjoy about you’re article and man young ladies do need a safe place there are so many weirdos out there just looking for something like this so the last is great the question and answer part to learn about them.

     and I think this is the best article I have read yet thank you for this post

      Hey Bill,

      LOL OMG YESSSS! I know!! I have two daughters age 9 and 11 and they are already at risk online. It’s so scary! Having my own daughters and seeing the challenges of my young Clients, I wanted to do something that could help them all together. 

      I like to make contact with them and their parents (if they are U18) to make sure they are a good fit for the group and of course so everyone knows I am a real person! 

      Thank you so much for your comments and hope you have a great day.

      Warmest Regards,

      Siobhan

    I’m curious if you know of a similar support group but for guys? I’ve experienced a lot of these problems of struggling to get along with kids my age, but easily getting along with adults. I was like this for most of Highschool and it would’ve been very helpful to have a group like this during those times. I remember when I was younger I also did not fit into any mainstream social groups. Part of the reason was because I didn’t like pop music and I didn’t care much for pop culture in general. I see the same thing happening to my younger sister who is now in high school. Maybe she could benefit from this social group.

      Hi Lex,

      Thank you so much for your much valued feedback, and thank you so much for sharing your experience with me also. 

      I believe a group like this is needed for boys and young men too. They certainly have their fair share of difficulties. My husband had difficulties in school because he didn’t like sport and that’s a huge thing here in Ireland. I do plan to have a group for boys down the line. For now I will get the girls group established properly and be there for them until they can be there for each other 🙂 

      I would be honoured to help your sister if she would like to apply. The girls currently in the group all have different interests too and two of them isn’t into pop music either. 

      Thank you once again for your contribution and please do reach out to me anytime Lex.

      Warmest Regards,

      Siobhan
