Child & Adolescent Coaching Cape Town

Our children in contemporary South Africa struggle with challenges that we as adults find hard to understand. Children are under enormous pressure to perform academically, socially and on the sports field.

What happens when our children do not meet these expectations? When we feel that our children are not reaching their full potential, coaching is the answer. The coaching work I do with children and adolescents is less stigmatized than seeing a therapist, as there is no shame in saying ‘I am going to see my coach’. My coaching work with children involves a positive approach using play therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques. The children I work with find the sessions to be stimulating and enjoyable as I provide a safe environment for them to explore their developing personalities, feelings and abilities. I work closely with the parents of my child clients and enrol them in the process to be my co-coaches, in order to be as effective as possible in their child's intervention.

 

My child clients are generally dealing with the following concerns:

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) all types

Divorce

Social Skills Difficulties

Academic Underachievement

Motivational Difficulties

Being a victim of bullying

Bullying

Childhood Anxiety

Childhood Depression

Family Relations

Identifying Learning Difficulties/ Barriers

Coaching for optimal well-being academically, socially, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

The work I do with adolescents involve Integral Coaching techniques and a client-centered approach where my clients are actively involved in their own development and specific areas of their choosing are addressed in coaching. These sessions are aimed at developing self-awareness, setting goals for the future and dealing with current emotional, physical or spiritual difficulties.

My adolescent clients are generally dealing with the following concerns:

Dealing with divorce

Emotional Intelligence Development

Lack of motivation

Career Guidance
