About Us

Youth wellbeing coaches are impartial and trusted adults who offer pro-active solution focused coaching to support and empower young people in decision making and taking actions to help them move forward.

By combining the following evidence-based approaches together on the platform of Wellbeing Coaching; we offer dedicated 1-2-1 and group coaching tailored to meet individual needs:

With the expectations they have for themselves and from others, as well as the pressures of fitting in, loss, growing up and planning a future; it can be hard for many to cope. This, combined with a lack of resources and self knowledge of effective coping strategies; is resulting in an epidemic of mental health problems. This awareness has developed into our innovative approach to empowering young people to become unstuck, through improving wellbeing and developing positive mental health.

We firmly believe that young people can benefit from having an impartial confidante who will help provide meaningful connection, clarity and guidance. Our coaching programmes are designed to support and complement any existing work being provided by other services.
