Coaching can help you to:

  • Talk about your dreams or ideas and what you would like to do with them.
  • Develop what you are good at and help you to make them better.
  • Be confident about yourself when you are around others.
  • Build courage to work through fears, disappointments and challenges.
  • Deal with and understand change as you grow older.
  • Know how your behaviour might effect you and other people.

How can coaching help me?

  • By helping you focus on positive things and work towards them.
  • By finding ways to help you learn and achieve more in school.
  • By encouraging you to believe in yourself, your abilities and your dreams.
  • By talking through your challenges to make them less challenging.
  • By helping you to feel confident about making choices.
  • By finding different ways to communicate with friends, parents and teachers.

What is coaching?

Coaching helps you to work your way through things and helps you to learn without someone doing the work for you. It can also help you to develop, make choices and think for yourself without someone tell you what to do and how to do it.

How does coaching work?

We coach children in different ways.

  • Sometimes by yourself with a coach.
  • Sometimes with others such as peers and a coach.
  • Sometimes through talking through things with your coach.
  • Sometimes through fun learning activities with your coach that you do not even realise that you are working through your challenges.
  • A session will last a maximum of 30 minutes depending on the age and need of the child.


We care for and meet the needs of all children.

Coaching the next generation

You are growing

As you grow up you may find that things are fun but sometimes can be tough and challenging. We encourage children to reach the best they can be with their goals and ambitions when they feel like they want to give up with something called coaching.

Process

Children under the age of 18 will need permission from a parent or carer before the first coaching session. The first session will be with the parent and child. This gives the parent or carer insight into how the child would like to proceed and what the expected outcomes could be.


All coaching sessions are confidential unless:

  • The child is under the age of 18 and the consenting parent or carer requests feedback.
  • Within a session the Coach is made aware that there is risk of harm to the child, or others, or there is a disclosure of a concerning nature.


* This would be discussed with the parent and child before the first session.
