Coaching for teenagers

Teenagers face ever increasing challenges in today’s fast moving world. More teenagers than ever are stressed and anxious about their lives. They feel depressed about their prospects, and often are affected by peer pressure and the need to fit in with others. With the lack of  of career guidance available at school it’s hard for teenagers to be confident about the life and career they aspire to.

There are also pressures from adults to pursue a certain career path without teenagers really knowing who they are or what they want from life. This makes choosing subjects, further and higher education and getting a job much harder for them. Over 70% have no idea what they want from life causing mental health issues. Yet I can help teenagers and their parents with all of these problems.


I work with teenagers, career advisers and parents to enable teenagers to:

  • Take control of their lives to reduce stress and anxiousness
  • Explore want they want from life to improve their prospects in life
  • Move away from peer pressure in order to be themselves
  • Find out who they are and what they want so that career guidance is more productive
  • Proactively manage themselves and their lives
  • Gain clarity on subject choices to help them design their own future
  • Identify and overcome obstacles that cause stress, anxiety and depression


All courses are powerful for Parents| Carers Advisers | Schools | Colleges and Universities.                                                   



– A vision of their future to work out what qualifications they needed

– Choose the right course of study which would help them in the future

– Coaching and mentoring to tap into their core passions

– A sense of purpose motivating them to work towards their goals

You’ve been working with my son for 5 weeks now, who’s on your success principles for teens course. Please don’t say anything to him as it will really embarrass him, but I wanted to say thank you. Keep doing what your doing as he’s really enthusiastic when he comes home.

Normally he comes home from school and heads to his room, but like today, he wanted to discuss with me what he has taken away from you, particularly his subject cloud he downloaded. Anyway, he has another five weeks and I must say, I haven’t had to remind him to come, I’m so proud how engaged he seems to be.

So, thank you

I took this course which help me to understand where I fit into the world of work. Now I have a better vision of what I want to do and think bigger than I used to. I also have created a new CV which reflects me as a person and got a job with John Lewis to show that I have work experience. I also created a vision board which reminds me every day of what I want to achieve in life. Year 11 student at Chamberlayne College for the Arts.
