16-25 Year Olds
Balancing ambitions and expectations, navigating peer relationships, establishing your independent self whilst still dependent, choosing your future direction – sometimes it’s all too much, but who do you turn to and what can you do?
My coaching is a conversation which offers a chance to chew something over, whether a thought, feeling or behaviour. This kind of conversation isn’t easy with a friend or relative because they may have a strong opinion as to (or be involved in) the outcome. A coach is impartial and the coaching relationship has no hierarchy allowing you to fully explore what’s bothering you, without authority or judgement.
I offer one-to-one coaching sessions which provide the optimal environment to explore whatever you choose. Perhaps you don’t yet know what the problem is, but have a sense that things aren’t how you want them to be. Perhaps school/work is going well but you are a loggerheads with your parents/partner. Perhaps your head is so full of ‘stuff’ and anxiety that you can’t focus on your forthcoming exams.
Coaching supports young adults in becoming more resilient – able to control what can be controlled and to adjust and adapt to what can’t. Resilience is ‘bounceback-ability,’ failing and trying again, coping with adversity, being adaptive, feeling strong enough to withstand whatever life throws at you.
Issues which young adults have brought to coaching include: fear of judgement, insecurity, motivation, resilience, stress, academic burden, confidence/self belief, peer relationships, body image, exam performance, resolving conflict, FOMO (fear of missing out), shyness, university/ career choices, leadership development, uncertainty, failure/success, academic competition, sibling rivalry and identity/individuality.
