Adolescent Life Coaching for Teens/Tweens
Middle school years are full of exploration and self-discovery. Self-image is mostly defined in comparison to others. High school poses more difficult challenges with social pressures and self-esteem issues that can pull your children in the direction opposite of their life goals and dreams. Professional coaching for teens and tweens can help your child develop the courage and self-awareness to seek his or her definition of achievement, individuality, and stay focused on the overall positive aspects of adolescent life.

Integration and REinforcement
Integration is an essential ingredient for the success of adolescent life coaching. Coaching sessions are structured for full integration of the learned skills and awareness back into everyday life, so that it never fades and becomes apart of who your child becomes from this point forward.
How do we do it? Teens/Tween clients apply their new knowledge at every session.They face the hard questions and answer them (with their coach’s guidance). They document their success in a journal and develop a new and empowering routine. Most importantly, they choose some challenging actions to take in-between sessions, which gets them, step by step, from where they are to being who they want to be.
