There are many questions that are presented to us in one of the hardest and most unknown stages of our lives. Through my experience I have managed to help many families and adolescents to lead a full life, working on short, medium and long-term goals.
When I thought about what information I wanted to convey in this section, I first thought of writing to the parents, explaining the benefits they would see in their children by taking personal coaching with me, since I am the mother of two teenagers and I understand, not only professionally but also personally, what complex that coexistence is when the children reach this stage. However, I decided to write to your son, who wants to create a "change" in his walk through this life.
What is Coaching for Teens like?
First of all I want to specify that coaching is not psychological therapy. You are not my patient, nor are you sick; you are a person who seeks and be better than it is and who is willing to learn new tools to achieve it.
My job is to accompany you in the process and help you achieve your goals, which we will define as coaching objectives; that is up to you, you decide the route to follow and I give you tools to achieve it. You are in charge of your progress, except for the first or second session where we will define your goal; you will decide what you want to take away from your session and these activities will be linked to your overall Coaching objective.
In each session together we will create action plans for you to execute between our sessions.
Everything we talk about will be kept confidential, unless you tell me that you are planning to do something that puts your life at risk (suicide, flogging, etc.). If there is a specific situation that you consider important to discuss with parents, together we will create the strategy to communicate it.
Our initial coaching agreement is for 6 sessions, approximately in session 5 we will make an evaluation to find out if we have achieved the objective to be specified. If before concluding with the agreed sessions you feel that you have achieved your objectives, we can finish this process. Similarly, if you decide to develop other aspects of your life, we will agree to create a new coaching goal.
Some of the benefits you will get are:
Life and career plan
Improved self-esteem and self-concept
Emotional intelligence development
better decision making
Support in the development of communication skills
Anxiety and stress reduction
Safe environment for sexual identity conflicts
...among many others
