Adolescent Coaching Cape Town
Our children and youth 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 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 Positive Psychology and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques. The adolescents 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 adolescent 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 adolescent clients are generally dealing with the following concerns:
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) all types
Social Skills Difficulties
Being a victim of bullying
Identifying Learning Difficulties/ Barriers
Coaching for optimal well-being academically, socially, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Lack of motivation
Extra time in exams assessments
Emotional Intelligence Development
Personal Agency Development
