Youth Coaching/Counselling for Teenagers of Deaf or Deafened Adults
Youth coaching/Counselling (hearing and Deaf coaches) is a branch of life coaching. It is designed to encourage personal development in young people while providing an outlet for their stresses and anxieties.
Sometimes young people can feel like they are stuck in a never-ending rollercoaster. The expectations they have for themselves, as well as the pressures of fitting in, growing up and planning a future, can make it hard for them to cope.
Youth coaching can help young people develop life skills and learn how to manage some of the stresses that come along the way. This can include:
- building confidence
- setting and achieving goals
- managing stress
- discussing difficult issues
As a parent, you probably worry about your teenage child. You may wonder if they are happy and hope they are doing well at school. You take comfort in the idea of them having a nice group of friends to support them through the journey. But what if they don’t, what if they are alone?
It can be difficult as a parent, as sometimes despite your worry, teenagers simply do not want to discuss their personal lives. After all, they are trying to break free and grow up, while a part of you wants to hold on. Young people have every right to keep secrets, but as a parent, this can be distressing. If you want your child to receive support, yet believe that you are not the right person to give it to them, one solution can be to hire a youth coach.
Our team do not aim to stand in as parents, teachers or friends. They are there to offer impartial, trustworthy support without any judgement. A youth coach can give a young person the chance to vent freely and confidentially about anything they want. This may include school and family life, friends, sexual issues or anything else that happens to be on their mind.
A youth coach can be hired to:
- help troubled teenagers get back on track
- encourage a better work ethic
- help young people deal with difficult or embarrassing issues
- discover potential and set goals to reach it
- help improve family dynamic
