I have worked in the third sector for the last 13 years. This has included extensive direct advocacy work,
project management, restorative justice, missing young people, youth engagement, Policy lead, Child Sexual
Exploitation within the Police and Crime Commissioning team, Senior Management positions and training.
Merging my passion for coaching and its transformational results, alongside my expertise in working with
Children and Young People has led to the development of this course.
There is such a vast array of self-development, self-awareness courses, books, groups, webinars, podcasts and
online programmes built for adults. However, there is virtually nothing for young adults.
It seems as if we are waiting for them to have failures in navigating the world as adults, THEN, we allow them
to build their own tool kit of resilience and understanding their own values and understanding of themselves.
Young people need to feel empowered, motivated, passionate, focused. Determined to be the best version of
themselves, with the most transformative results.
We need confident, happy young people who are living by their own measure of success, with a growth mind set and
We want to equip them with a tool box to help them improve their accountability, resilience, confidence,
happiness and a real understanding of who they are, what they want from life and an understanding of their own
strengths and skill set. Allowing young people to understand how to rid themselves of limiting thoughts and
beliefs and negative self-talk that holds them back.
Coaching promotes self-reflection, exploring values and goals for the future. I use exploratory questioning and
tools, techniques, and development as part of the coaching process. Coaching is based on understanding.
Understanding of behaviours, of negative thought processes, understanding why we feel “stuck”, understanding our
own resourcefulness and our own worth. That we are very adaptable and capable and have the answers to our own
Through tools and techniques, the coachee can understand what drives them as a person, what their motivations
are and gain real perspective on how they are and where they want to be. Coaching can challenge limiting
beliefs, but most importantly explores how you can take resourceful action to change your own future for the
better. With new understanding and knowledge, that is you that have the answers and the skills, knowledge and
resources to make changes for yourselves.
