What is Coaching & What is a Kids Coach?

What is Coaching


What is a kids coach?

As the kids coach, I use coaching to help kids solve problems. I work with children from 6 – 13 years of age. Coaching is a way of working alongside you while you discover your own answers  and solutions to problems. As a kids coach, it’s all about keeping it positive and moving forward to enable them, and you, achieve the things you want for yourself.

What is Coaching?

Coaching is hugely popular in the USA and increasingly so world-wide. Still though, there can be confusion or little awareness of what exactly coaching is and how it works. Many coaches now have a “niche”; my niche is kids coaching. I have chosen to be a kids coach because of my long career in primary education.

Coaching is a positive and collaborative process whereby a person (or a family or team) works together with a coach to enable positive solutions, improve performance and maximise their true potential. This is why the ethos behind Inspired Learning is, “Making a positive change today for a brighter tomorrow.”


Every day may not be good, but there is good in every day

There is no stigma attached to getting some support to help you or your child through times of change or stress.  We are constantly having to adapt to changes in our personal and professional lives, and as such we learn new things about ourselves all the time. Our mood or mindset can impact on how successfully we are able to manage and navigate these changes. The same is just as true for children. As such, as the kids coach, I work alongside them to help them to become happier, more resilient, and independent kids.

Using an expert, someone who is trained and qualified, is important to us in all areas of life. You wouldn’t use someone who wasn’t a reputable, well-trained and qualified mechanic to fix your car – you would use some who was credible, qualified and with a good reputation. You can look at my coaching qualifications here.

Working with a coach enables you to gain life skills, or tools, such as problem solving skills, and the ability to see things as they really are, rather than be clouded in confusion or stress. There are many reasons why people work alongside a coach, such as:

  • Decision making.
  • Improve professional performance.
  • Confidence building.
  • Develop greater communication skills.
  • Enhance personal and professional relationships.
  • Self-awareness.
  • Life skills such as breaking bad habits or making the same mistake.
  • Reduce stress.
  • Successfully manage change.
  • Start and finish a new project.
  • Staying calm and managing mood and emotions.
  • Achieve goals and aspirations.
