Child & Adolescent Coaching

What is life coaching for children?

Life coaching for children is all about teaching kids empowerment skills and personal development skills so they can become self-leaders in their own lives.  Children learn how to use the power of their minds and the power of their thoughts to create happiness, confidence, and success in their lives. Think of it as leadership training for kids.  

Coaching helps children…

  • Develop resilience skills. A life coach helps children learn how to manage life’s “curveballs” — whether it is facing a significant change or dealing with a major disappointment. Kids learn to bounce back and pick themselves up to “go for it” in life.
  • Develop self-esteem from the “inside out.” This helps children learn how to base their self-esteem on who they are, not on what they have achieved, whom they know, or what they do.
  • Learn to believe in themselves and build self-confidence. A life coach helps kids learn to move through anxiety and fear to stretch outside their comfort zone, create courage, and confidently pursue their dreams.
  • Develop their own “inner compass.” A life coach helps kids learn to think for themselves, make good decisions, stand up to peer pressure, and be their own person.
  • Learn to live life with intention versus drifting through life without direction. By learning self-leadership skills, kids develop an empowered way of thinking that will help them develop a vision for their lives.

Life coaching is about supporting kids to live their best lives!

WISDOM™ Coaching System

The coaching curriculum used is called the WISDOM™ System for Coaching Kids. Through the system, children learn powerful mindset skills and success principles critical for creating happiness, confidence, and success in their lives.

Through WISDOM™ Coaching, children learn…

  • How to recognize and shift limiting beliefs that hurt self-esteem and hold them back. They also learn how to proactively create supportive beliefs that will support them in feeling good about themselves, believing in themselves, and creating a happy, fulfilling life.
  • The values of self-leaders include the power of taking full responsibility for their lives, the importance of living life with integrity, and the importance of treating others with respect while always treating themselves with respect.
  • How to think for themselves and make decisions…which helps them develop their inner compass and learn how to stand up to peer pressure.
  • How to feel good about themselves even when things do not go their way so that their self-esteem is based on the inside out and not on whom they know, what they do, or what they have.
  • How to believe in themselves even after facing disappointment so that they can move through their upset and their fear…to create courage and self-confidence.
  • How to live with intention and direction, so they do not drift through life.
  • How to develop a mindset for creating success in their lives, including learning how to set and achieve their goals.
  • How to manage change so that they can thrive in new circumstances.

Life coaching is not just for kids who are facing challenges or problems. Helping kids learn how to reach their fullest potential is about personal development and personal empowerment so that they will be ready to face any challenge that comes their way. The skills they learn can be used for the rest of their lives!
