How can coaching young women help?
So many children are unaware of how wonderful they are. Given the right environment, they can often be natural overachievers, but they may not be challenged in the right ways or distracted by external influences - relationships, school life and even social media, leaving them unable to focus.
These factors can often become a marker for self worth, particularly social media, potentially affecting the lifelong relationship they will have with themselves. These influences can impact their motivations or lack of in adult life, as well as the connections they choose with others right from adolescence to adulthood.
This coaching method aims to reduce those influences and offers an extra helping hand to young women who may feel off-course, supporting them towards control over their lives, making positive choices for their own future because they know their value.
It's not a miracle cure, it's about providing a platform with a qualified coach to engage young people in those vital conversations they need in life, helping them reframe their challenges and experiences in a practical and progressive way.
