Youth coaching with me

While the adventure of growing up can be a wonderful and exciting time, young people as well as adults can experience difficulties in life.

The teenage years can be a strange and difficult time for everyone involved.  During this time, the family dynamic can change dramatically. Teenagers begin to fight for their independence and parents fight to maintain control, this can easily seep into school life, affecting education.

Every young person can respond to a difficulty in life differently. Where one child may express their thoughts and feelings, another may act out. A young person going through stress may repress their emotions; their behaviour may start to change as may not feel they have anyone to talk to.

When going through these changes, it is important to let the young person know you are there for support. However, they may not feel confident enough to discuss their issues with you. This is where a youth coach can help – they are an impartial source of support who can listen and understand the challenges the young person is facing.
