Kids & Teens coaching
Kids &Teen coaching
Teen coaching is a branch of life coaching. It is designed to encourage personal development in young people while providing an outlet for their stresses and anxieties.
Sometimes young people can feel like they are stuck on a never-ending rollercoaster. The expectations they have for themselves, as well as the pressures of fitting in, growing up and planning a future, can make it hard for them to cope.
Youth coaching can help young people develop life skills and learn how to manage some of the stresses that come along the way. This can include:
setting and achieving goals
discussing difficult issues
It can be difficult as a parent, as sometimes despite your worry, teenagers simply do not want to discuss their personal lives. After all, they are trying to break free and grow up, while a part of you wants to hold on. Young people have every right to keep secrets but, as a parent, this can be distressing. If you want your child to receive support, yet believe that you are not the right person to give it to them, one solution can be to hire a youth coach.
Youth coaches do not aim to stand in as parents, teachers or friends. They are there to offer impartial, trustworthy support without any judgement. A youth coach can give a young person the chance to vent freely and confidentially about anything they want. This may include school and family life, friends or anything else that happens to be on their mind.
Teen coaching benefits
Life coaching for young people can be a useful solution when they are experiencing difficulties. It is normal for both parent and child to feel overwhelmed during this time of growth and learning. There are a lot of changes happening and many “big decisions” that need to be faced.
During any transitional point in our lives, it can be easy to lose a sense of who we are, what we are worth and where we are heading.
The transition between childhood and adulthood is fueled by hormone imbalances, mood swings, heartbreak and bewildering bodily changes. All of these make everyday problems all the more scary and taxing. For young people who are feeling overwhelmed and under a lot of pressure, a youth coach can give them the chance to recognize and voice their worries.
With my many years experience as teen/ adults coach and a mother, I can help your teenager to discover what is most important for her/ him, what they really want to do and where they want to be.
There are many things a young person feels they need to know and achieve by the time they are leaving school. You may hear your child say, “Everyone expects me to...” or “I should do this...” rather than “I want to...”.
This stage of life can be a balancing act, young people are learning who they are, how to better communicate with themselves and the world around them.
