Although counseling concentrates on the “clinical” side of the life experience, the focus of coaching is setting and achieving life goals.
I will partner with your teen regarding topics including:
- Setting and working toward goals
- How to network and interact with people of varying personality types
- How to make a great first impression (excellent for personal and professional relationships)
- Knowing your value
- How to follow through on your intentions and promises
- Working through adversity
- Creating a healthy school-social-family-life balance
Introduction to OC Teen Coaching
Suppose your life could be transformed in an instant. What would be the first thing that you’d do? Would you travel? Would you pick up and move to another city, state or country? Would your day-to-day life be different? Would you feel differently? Life coaches call those questions the, “Miracle Questions.”
It is a technique frequently applied in life coaching. Figuring out the answers to these questions has the ability to empower you to discover precisely how you really wish your life to be and to determine what is most important to you.
Most people get bogged down in the overdone activities of day-to-day life.”
We get frustrated, bored, unhappy, exhausted, and unable to even remember the goals that we set for ourselves. We simply are making an effort to make it to the end of each week. We used to hold on to a dream for how we would like our lives to turn out, but now we do not have a clue how or where to even start to accomplish this.
Establish Goals, Attain Them, and Mature into Happiness
Were you incapable of coming up with answers to the miracle questions? If so, you are certainly not the only one. Many people have a hard time seeing the bigger picture in life and making the changes that bring them closer to their dreams. Life coaching can help you with this.
While attempting to reach one of your goals, one of the most powerful things you can do is identify the obstacles that are clogging up your route to success. As life coaches, we have the ability to help you in figuring this out and to develop a strategy for finding a way to bound over the obstructions. When you set out to make lasting changes in your life and begin to truly understand that this is actually attainable, things will begin to change swiftly, and progress will come into view as not only tangible but inevitable.
I have experience guiding our teens in carrying out their objectives and reaching their dreams. We all encounter hardships on our path to achievement, such as emotional, financial, and psychological problems. Having a qualified life coach to help you through the difficulties you might face could be the first in a series of great decisions.
OC Teen Coaching Focuses on Your Teens Growth
In life coaching, there are various aspects of life that we examine to gauge a person’s level of satisfaction. In each category, a certain rating can be offered, from 1 to 10.
These categories include:
- Living environment
- Social life and family
- Personal growth
- Leisure and entertainment
Where would you rank your own life in each of these categories? Do you feel stagnant in a particular category and don’t know not move forward? If you don’t rate yourself not ranking at a 10 in all categories (or even in one category) take heart — are not the exception. While we might achieve a 10 on one point in a certain category, the very next day (or even in the span of a single moment) we could very well take a nose-dive down to a 1. Being unexpectedly laid off from a job, the unexpected passing of a friend or family member (or even a pet), deployment to a war zone — life has a knack of pitching us from our course. Even without experiencing a serious tragedy, it’s not uncommon for someone to not be performing at a 10 in any category.
Renowned psychologist Erich Fromm once wrote (ignore the English language’s lack of gender neutrality):
Man always dies before he is fully born.”
Even though this might come across negative, it is actually a fairly optimistic assessment. We will never wholly realize our full potential. There is always more we can aspire to, more than we could ever hope to accomplish in our short time on earth.
Life is limitless, so why do we put such harsh limitations on ourselves? Build a relationship with a life coach and learn how to remove those self-imposed barriers.
It would be an honor to work with your teen on their path of growth and self discovery!
