Most of us remember our teenage years as being a challenging time.
How nice would it have been to have a coach help you through it? Imagine what your child could accomplish having the same much-needed help. As a parent, you probably worry about your teenage child. You may wonder if they are happy and hope they are doing well at school. You take comfort in the idea of them having a nice group of friends to support them through the journey. But what if they don’t, what if they are alone? It can be difficult as a parent, as sometimes despite your worry, teenagers simply do not want to discuss their personal lives.
I work with teens, and every single one of them need a judgment-free place to feel listened to and understood. Coaching provides teens a safe, confidential place without judgment to learn tools, share their struggles and achievements and gain the confidence they need to do their best.
It is my job as a life coach to help them reflect on their decisions, make changes when necessary, and above all, get to a place of happiness. Every one of my clients has what it takes to be successful, sometimes they just need a little help believing it.
Being a coach is not something I chose, it chose me. I get to play a part in helping them realize their full potential, and in return, they change the world.
“Be the person you needed when you were younger.”
Teenagers enjoy coaching because it feels more like mentoring than counseling. Click Here to see the difference. Coaching helps teens get to know who they are and what matters most to them. Teenagers choose what areas of their life they would like to see improve, and because they have a voice in how the coaching sessions go, they become highly motivated. A life coach gives them the chance to vent freely and confidentially about anything they want. This may include school and family life, friends, sexual issues or anything else that happens to be on their mind.
Whether teens receive coaching in-person, or on the phone, they work with me to develop a unique plan that will help them improve in areas they are struggling. Clients are excited by the fact that they get to see immediate results if they commit to their coaching plan. Coaching is a rewarding experience for teens and parents; it offers them greater self-confidence and it offers parents peace of mind knowing their child is reaching his or her full potential.

The Coaching Process
Most are nervous the first time we meet or my first phone call. They feel unsure of exactly why we’re talking, and they wonder if coaching is some strange new form of punishment designed to make them miserable. My first goal is to set there minds at ease. First, I explain to my new client that it’s perfectly normal to be nervous and confused as to why they are talking to me. Some teens feel hurt and angry during those first few minutes, and some feel curious and a little excited that they are finally going to have a place to talk about the things that are going on in their lives.
If my clients have never heard of a life coach I let them know that coaching gives them a safe, confidential place for them to learn tools, and gain the confidence they need to live their best life. Having a life coach is similar to having a sports coach. A coach’s job is to teach new skills and help them get better at their sport, or in this case, life.
The teen coaching process is incredibly powerful and has the capacity to transform your teen’s life. Your teen need and deserve someone like me- someone safe and relatable.
