Coaching is a powerful tool

Coaching can support children in building their confidence and self-esteem. Through a coaching relationship within our programme, children are provided with a safe space to explore their thoughts, feelings and beliefs about themselves and their situations, and are given the tools and guidance to develop a positive self-image.

Here are some ways in which our children coaching services can support children to reach their full potential:

  • Identifying strengths and values: One of the first steps in coaching is to identify a child's strengths and values. This process can help children understand what they are good at and what is important to them, which can boost their confidence and self-esteem.
  • Setting goals: Coaching can help children set realistic and achievable goals that align with their strengths and values. By working towards these goals, children can feel a sense of accomplishment and gain confidence in their abilities.
  • Encouragement and support: Coaches provide children with encouragement and support throughout the coaching process. This can help children feel valued and appreciated, which can boost their self-esteem.
  • Developing resilience: Coaching can help children develop resilience, which is the ability to bounce back from setbacks and challenges. By learning to see setbacks as opportunities for growth, children can develop a more positive self-image and a stronger sense of self-esteem.
  • Challenging negative self-talk: Coaches can help children challenge negative self-talk, which is a common barrier to confidence and self-esteem. By identifying and reframing negative thoughts, children can develop a more positive and self-affirming inner dialogue.
  • Building social skills: Coaching can help children develop social skills such as communication, empathy, and assertiveness. These skills can help children build positive relationships with others, which can boost their confidence and self-esteem.

In Conclusion,

coaching can be a powerful tool for supporting children with confidence and self-esteem. By providing a safe space for exploration, encouragement and support, goal-setting, and skill-building, coaches can help children develop a positive self-image and the resilience to navigate challenges and setbacks.

I’ve been seeing Vanessa for a whole host of different and complex mental health reasons for a number of years. Sometimes I go for months and months without needing her support and other times I see her weekly - that’s one of the great things about her, the adaptability to my needs. Vanessa is supportive, professional, and extremely knowledgeable across a wide breadth of issues and treatments / approaches. Without doubt the best therapist I have ever worked with and I couldn’t recommend her more highly.

Vanessa was recommended through a close friend and I cannot thank them both enough. Since our sessions began a little under a year ago Vanessa has helped me create a deeper understanding of myself and others and has equipped me with the knowledge to continue to improve my life, I’ll be forever grateful for this! Vanessa is a very warming, professional and highly experienced therapist and I look forward to developing myself more with her help 🙂

Vanessa was recommended to me by a friend, earlier this summer and turned out to be exactly what I needed in order to help me sort out my issues.She is very down-to-earth and sensible and after asking questions and really listening to what one has to say, has a lot of insight into what may be troubling you - which she easily translates into ways that show a depth of discernment with understanding and sympathy, combined with practical help based on both theory and practical experience.Within weeks I was able to see a way forward and regain my sense of purpose.I cannot recommend Vanessa highly enough.

Vanessa is a very caring, compassionate and experienced counsellor. She makes you feel at ease even when it may feel hard to open up, I found her very easy to talk to. There are no words to completely describe just how much she has helped me and how our sessions have already had such a positive impact on my life. I highly recommend Vanessa and thank her from the bottom of my heart for helping me.

My daughter (age 9) has been seeing Vanessa for several months. Vanessa does such a good job of engaging her in a variety of activities and she looks forward to every session. As a result of the sessions, my daughter is clearly gaining an understanding of herself that is helping her to better manage some of her challenges. I also feel I have learnt so much about my daughter and how I can support her. Vanessa is extremely approachable, professional and supportive and I’d highly recommend her services.
