  • Relationships between parents and child can be a challenge. We can work with your kids, to know themselves and help design the type of lives for themselves which they can be proud of. It’s also about the type of relationship with you and with others.
  • Having said that, it’s critical that to ensure the kids can keep on developing, that parents ‘know themselves’ as well. The more you know about yourself and recognize your own shortcomings and how to address them… the more your kids will respect you. You might not be able to prevent them from falling into the same traps as you did when you were that age, but, you can be there for them, and be someone they want to talk to.

L) How is teen coaching different from the adult course?

  • Concepts and methodology the same, but more youth orientated.

M) What’s the difference between therapy and Life Coaching

  • Both have their individual places, they overlap in goals, but they are not the same kind of experiences. Therapists often focus on understanding your past, your feelings and your behaviours. (*cognitive behavioural therapies) Coaching is more action orientated, it emphasizes action. It helps with empowerment and an action plan.
  • We have the most success with already healthy people who want to be happier in life. We cannot treat illness. We work best with people who are already healthy but are struggling to be successful or happy in one or more areas of their lives. Our work is philosophical and action oriented. People who want to make significant changes in their lives enjoy the challenge of coaching. People who are in emotional crises or dealing with mental illness or depression often find more comfort in therapy. We cannot prescribe medication.
  • If we do what we always do, we get what we always get – we look at changing the action to obtain a different outcome.
