How youth coaching can help parents
WHAT YOUNG PEOPLE SAY ABOUT COACHING
“I didn’t think I could change my mental attitude but I did”
Some coaching stories
If this all sounds familiar...
1. Contact me to arrange a free introductory call with you to see if coaching might be right for your teenager or young adult. Remember coaching is not advice, it is not counselling, and it is not therapy. Your young person must be in a place to want to DO something about their situation, as well as TALK. Coaching is about action.
2. Direct your teenager/young adult to the youth guide to coaching to help them understand how it can help.
3. Consider coaching for yourself. Letting go of giving advice can be hard as parents after years of telling our children what to do, helping them to grow up. Coaching can help us to get used to the idea of stepping back and explore how we might change our own thoughts and behaviour to take different action which might help our young people to blossom as individuals - and us to adjust. (see adult coaching).
4. Consider coaching for you and your friends. If you want to talk together about common parenting issues and find new ways forward, contact me to arrange a workshop.
