Youth Coaching

Happiness is an inside job

Coaching can be an empowering experience which puts the young person in the driving seat: supported to find answers from within themselves and equipping them with skills for life.

The process encourages personal development: identifying the thinking or behaviours that are holding them back, helping them to see things differently and in doing so offering fresh possibilities, clarity and solutions to move forward.

As a mum of teens and a secondary school guidance  teacher with responsibility for pastoral and curricular care, I have seen the benefits of coaching.

Coaching can help your teen to:

Realise their potential

  • ​discover potential and goal set to achieve it

  • understand emotions and manage reactions 

  • explore values/purpose - find out what's important to them


Manage​ overwhelm, anxiety or stress

  • manage expectations, pressure, stress and be more resourceful

  • gain fresh perspective - see possibilities and opportunities

  • identify needs and discuss worries


Take ownership of their ​action plan 

  • navigate difficult situations/failure with creative problem solving

  • develop confidence and motivation in your own decision making

  • boost motivation - set goals for self improvement

You have helped her to shift her thinking and be able to see a way forward.  This has not only positively impacted her school work but also helped her to be confident about who she is".
