Kids / Teen Coaching

Kids Coaching – why not? Why wait until your kids are 30 and still unsure of themselves? Isn’t it better to give them a headstart in life now? Why watch them develop bad habits instead of developing powerful ones instead. Children who learn to manage their emotions and interact well with others can be happy from the beginning and lead more successful and fulfilling lives.

Research shows us that the present generation of children and youth worldwide is demonstrating more emotional needs than the last. Educational and recreational programs and families too are recognizing that the youth today are more angry, unruly, more lonely and depressed, are more impulsive and aggressive, are more stressed and nervous and have high levels of anxiety.

Why is Kid’s Coaching Successful?

Because the young person gets to talk to an unbiased person other than their parent, teacher, friend or school counsellor.

They learn about emotional awareness and grasp new tools and ways of thinking to help them cope better in many situations.

They learn the use of safe expression, talking about feelings, addressing fears and talking about friends and family members in order to gain new perspectives and learn how situations affect them personally.

Call me to see how coaching can help your child. I would be happy to consult with him or her directly on the phone to answer any questions he/she may have about coaching, and what to expect in our sessions.

Coaching sessions with teens are usually done on the phone or via skype. It can be less invasive for a teen and they are able to open up more easily to the coach on the phone.

Confidentiality: It is important to note that all client sessions are confidential even if a parent is paying. This helps to build trust between the adolescent and the therapist. If parents are very concerned about their child, based on the consent of my client, I will suggest a session with parent and child together.
