What is Teen Coaching?
💡 Teen Coaching is a professional relationship between a Teen Client and a Teen Coach designed to help the teen generate learning as well as identify and accomplish meaningful goals.
💡 A Teen Coach helps teens get to their desired goal, helping them determine their next stop and helps them get there.
💡 Teen Life Coaching is about helping teens become aware of their capabilities and available resources and apply it to their life.
The Importance of Having a Coach for your Teen
So many teens feel insecure, have pressure from all sides, and worry about what others think.
With a Teen Coach by their side, you can help your adolescents develop the motivation, engagement, and confidence to lead an empowered life.
Often at times with the pressure from school or other areas of life, it is quite effective to have a third-party messenger who can complement your message in the home.
Coaching vs Therapy/Counseling
🔎 Coaching differs from therapy and counseling in that life coaching does not focus on the past or offer a diagnosis.
🔎 In life coaching, the coach and the client work together to create a deeper awareness and design actions for the client.
🔎 Life coaching is effective for a number of reasons, the primary being that the life coaching relationship is a designed relationship where the Teen Coach and the Teen Client are considered equal partners in the coaching relationship.
Misconceptions About Teen Coaching

There is nothing wrong with your teen in order for you to hire a Coach. It’s a matter of helping them bring out the best in them and having accountability along the way.

Coaching does not require more time and energy. In fact, it will help save you a lot of time, headaches or heartache when you witness the transformation and growth in their confidence and mindset.
✂️ It forces teenagers to change.
Teen Coaching is led by inspiration and not by force. We help empower your teen to live at cause, therefore raising their awareness to adopt empowering beliefs.
✂️ Teen Coaching replaces parenting and schooling.
Teen Coaches do not replace the role of a Parent or Teacher. They are the connector between the school and home, and importantly an additional messenger and accountability partner.

The Structure of Teen Coaching
Coaching sessions are conducted weekly and are designed to be about 60 minutes in length where the Coach and Teen will sit down and discuss the latest goals and strategies, whilst factoring in the requests of the Parent.
These coaching sessions can be conducted online or in person, at a mutually agreed location. It is not recommended that sessions be conducted in a quiet place at home and we encourage you to empower your teen to get out of their comfort zone.
Alongside the coaching, the Teen Coach works very closely with the parents to ensure everyone is on the same page.
After each session, the parents will receive an email review of how their Teen is going. And, have the opportunity to check in weekly with the Coach via phone to discuss progress.
Parents will also receive the opportunity to have the Coach become a point of contact for their teen’s Classroom Teacher, Year Co-ordinator or Principal. We are very passionate about providing a top quality service and involving all parties, so that we give your teen the best possible experience and results.
Your teen will walk away with not only great knowledge and experience, but importantly a new way of thinking, empowering beliefs and habits that will set them up for long term success.
They will step into a new identity of being a leader of success and when you get to witness their growth, you too will adopt additional empowering beliefs as a Parent.
How to choose the best Coach for my Teen?
We recognise that there is not one size fits all approach to coaching your teens. That is why we take our time to learn more about your situation before enrolling both you and your teen in our programs.
You and your teen will receive the opportunity to sit down with one of our Managing Directors so we can learn more about your needs and wants. Based on our meeting together, we will then craft a custom plan for you and connect you with one of our Teen Coaches that best aligns.
If you would like to ask further questions or proceed to hire a Teen Coach, we will lock in conversation to confirm all logistics and get you and your Teen set up for success.
