Adolescents have unique needs. School stress, anxiety about relationships, and planning for high school and/or college causes build-up of stress and anxiety that needs support. Add in issues such as ADHD, executive functioning deficits, autism spectrum disorder, Nonverbal Learning Disability, or other disabilities, and adolescence can seem unbearable. Coaching can help in multiple ways. First, we identify goals, such as planning and organization skills, or better social skills, or managing anxiety. It could be managing HW at home or better peer relationships. Then we work through plans and strategies for each goal. We work on how our thinking influences our behavior, and make appropriate changes.
Coaching for adults can address a wide variety of issues. Anxiety, depression, relationships, careers, and just feeling overwhelmed and lost are all reasons to seek support. ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and Nonverbal Learning Disability also make life more complicated and lead to needing help. Coaching can help you reconnect with yourself, your goals, and figure out how to get there. It can be short term, to achieve one goal or overcome one obstacle. It can be long term, to guide a life plan, work through ongoing issues and keep you on track. Let’s work through that together.
