Yout/Academic Coaching 1-1 or group coaching

Academic coaching for young people can be an extremely beneficial solution especially when they are looking for clarity in defining their goals and aspirations. Youth coaching will encourage personal development as well as provide answers when confusion confused, anxious or even stressed.

Common academic coaching topics:

  • Time management
  • Feeling of overwhelmn
  • Goal setting
  • Motivation
  • Wellness
  • Test/exam preparation
  • Self-determination
  • Executive function skills

Coaching develops a solutions-based mindset where frustrations and worries can be shared in a non-judgemental safe space that will help to bring a positive change.

Group coaching can also be very beneficial for youth who all share a common goal, this could be planning their academic goals, preparing for their exams, figuring out and exploring future plans, managing anxiety and stress, boosting confidence and self-esteem.
