We have many years experience of working with young people – from all walks of life. Whether it’s training young people leaving care to express their views in the media, or helping young people to plan for their futures, we draw on a wide range of communication techniques to compliment our coaching skills.
We select and adapt relevant elements from NLP, Transactional Analysis and theatre training – which we deliver with the underpinning belief that these sessions should be stimulating and enjoyable.
We offer both individual coaching and training sessions, but also group work. Coaches delivering these sessions are CRB checked.
Some of the services we offer include:
We work with young people in a variety of ways to help them plan for college, university or their chosen career. Our methods focus on helping young people to draw on their own strengths and interests – away from peer, school or family pressures. So they can develop realistic and robust plans for the future.

Confidence and presentation skills
Few people are naturally confident. However many young people experience low self-esteem because they believe that other people are ‘far more confident’ than they are. We can help young people to recognise that:
- Few people are naturally confident and most of us have to ‘fake it until we feel it’
- You don’t have to be something you’re not – you just have to maximise what you’ve got
We then help young people to:
- Identify their own strengths and skills
- Learn techniques for confident body language
- Learn to create ‘rapport’ with other people
- Learn to project confidence without appearing pushy

Preparation for interviews
Young people may be clever talented and gregarious but that’s no guarantee that they will be able to ‘sell themselves’ in pressurised interview situations.
Our interviews preparation sessions help young people who are preparing for university, college or job interviews to:
- Identify their long-term goals and use these to create motivation
- Recognise that interviews are an opportunity – and learn how to feel more in control
- Plan their individual interview strategy
- Understand the importance of body language
- Develop techniques to project confident – and control nerves
- Demonstrate relevant skills and knowledge without ‘showing off’
