Although we have created this Coach training course to support practitioners to learn how to coach young people. We realise that in some situations you may need to increase your organisational capacity to support young people through our direct coaching support.
In order to address this, we are able to provide one-to-one or small group coaching with young people from your school or organisation.
Our work and research has shown that skills for resilience and wellbeing skills are developed through the experience of the coaching relationship, through explicit learning with their coach and through practising the skills and strategies for wellbeing and resilience inside and outside the coaching sessions.
Our approaches allow young people to take responsibility and ownership for their thinking, feelings and behaviour. The wellbeing skills and resilience strategies the young people develop through positive psychology coaching combine these three broad interrelated categories.
Skills and strategies that develop positive relationships and the skills to make and maintain them. This can include communication skills, friendship and teamwork skills.
Coaching is evidenced to be the most effective way of providing support to develop resilience. Resilience is an important area of psychology research within the field of Positive Psychology. This training utilises research and applied practice from both positive psychology and evidence-based coaching. These approaches have been adapted and made accessible for young people ages 13+. This integrated approach has been demonstrated to increase self-awareness, self-regulation, interpersonal skills, wellbeing and positive outcomes for vulnerable young people and provide a proactive approach to prevention.
Our Coach Training integrates strategies that include solution focused coaching, the development of helpful thinking skills, how to raise emotional and self-awareness, the development of positive interpersonal and communication skills, strengths-based approaches and goal striving behaviour.
Our Managing Director has conducted and published research to understand how Coaching can effectively support the prevention of mental health problems in young people. This research underpins this Coach Training Course.
This chart tells us that for a cohort of 140 young people that we coached, the levels of anxiety, depression and stress all significantly reduced after having being coached. The measure used was the DASS21.

It is possible to Coach primary aged Children, unfortunately we don’t cover how to do that on this course. Our approach is to coach young people over the age of 13. Most of the content within our course is focused at working with teenagers and young adults. Therefore some of it may not be developmentally appropriate to use with children in primary schools.
Our Course is more than a coaching skills course. Our course trains you to become a Coach that can work with young people. Our coach training course is based on 10 years practical experience and research coaching young people using Positive Psychology Coaching. I have even published academic papers and spoken at international research conferences about our method for coaching young people and how it can help prevent mental health problems, by developing wellbeing and resilience.
In additional to a robust evidence base underpinning our approach, our work is all co-produced with young people. Meaning the tools and strategies you will learn through the course have been developed to suit young people’s wants and needs. They are accessible and practical.
We are the pioneers of this approach and don’t think there are any other providers training coaches to support young people in quite the way we do. But if you find one, please let us know and we can help you understand further why ours is the standout coach training course to enrol on.
