What is a life coach?
I always get asked this question and there are several definitions of what a life coach is. So, the best advice I can offer you is to do some research of your own wherever you live because we’re all different. The first thing to do is to identify what you want help with, and then look for a life coach.
My passion as a life coach is to find out what you want in life, even if you don’t know right now. Then I will guide you towards the right tools and techniques that are relevant to you. When you have them you will be able to find your direction in life. Adults and teenagers have similar problems and today’s blog discusses life coaching for teenagers.
One of the biggest areas of concerns for me are teenagers.
As someone who works with teenagers extensively in the UK education sector, I am dismayed at the lack of interest in life coaching for teens. There is a clear focus on academic achievement at the expense of a holistic appreciation of the individual students.
Just think if every teenager had a life coach, they could coach them to create the life they want to live. The concept of teenagers finding their identity and therefore able to make great decisions about their future is critical to engage students more in their learning.
Life coaching for teens
Coaching for teens works and I can prove. It transforms teenagers lives and moves them from living a life without direction to being in control of their life.
Once teens have a clear identity and direction in life, they are able to choose the next stage of their education with greater clarity. This leads to them engaging more with their learning because it has a purpose.
Did you know that over 70% of the teenagers I work with find it difficult to find their direction in life without guidance? It makes teens feel unheard, stuck, and frustrated.
As a life coach I think it’s 100% wrong that young people should be burdened with those feelings. I strongly believe that each and everyone deserves to know where they’re going and how to get there.
I was lucky in that I knew from the age of 7 what I wanted to do. I also know that along the way I’ve lost my way at times. So, I understand what it’s like.
What are The Success Principles?
The tools and techniques I use in my life coaching courses in the UK is called The Success Principles. Everyone wants to be successful—and today’s youth are no exception. The Success Principles for Teens book is a roadmap for every young person.
It doesn’t matter if the goal is to become a better student or athlete, start a business, make millions of pounds, or simply find guidance and direction, the principles in this book always work, if you work the principles.
The Success Principles for Teens includes 20 of the most important success strategies used by thousands of exceptional young people throughout history. With the right tools and techniques, anyone can be successful. This book will give teens the courage and the heart to get started and get ahead.
Reading the book is a great place to start for teenagers. What is even more powerful is group life coaching for teens by a qualified life coach like me.
I trained as a life coach with Jack Canfield and became a Certified Canfield Success Principles Trainer. Educators can book either book me for face-to-face or on-line life coaching programs. I’m qualified in both types of program.

If you’re a parent or carer of a teenager, why not ask your school or college to start up one of my programs?
