ADOLESCENT LIFE COACHING
Does this sound like a strange phenomenon?
We have coaches for sports, dance, gymnastics, & education, so why not a LIFE coach?
How can a life coach benefit our adolescents?
Our youth are faced with all kinds of stressors:
Many times parents do not see the impact that one or more of these may be having on their children until they experience a crisis. When this happens the parents and the adolescents are facing brain health issues (depression, anxiety), substance abuse, irrational choices, etc.
What is a Life Coach?
A Life coach is NOT a therapist. A life coach works with well-functioning clients. If a young person is experiencing depression, anxiety, etc., they may need to see a therapist.
How can a Coach help?
Just as sport’s coaches teach players about the game, teamwork, dealing w/loss, etc., a life coach can help an adolescent deal with current stressors before they become a critical event.
