Life coaching strives to empower the person by recognizing and affirming that each person has the potential to be her best self.
The client sets the coaching agenda and has a personal champion (life coach) who asks powerful questions so the client can move forward towards her goals.
Coaching is not counseling and does not strive to “fix or heal” the person.
It is a confidential, insightful method often called “positive psychology”, since it looks at what’s positive in the person.
Because teen girls are often subjected to:
· Negative gender stereotypes
· Traditional gender roles in the home
· Societal pressures to conform
· Negative and limiting messages about their bodies
· Discouragement related to their academic interests and professional goals
When teen girls have life coaching, they can address the pitfalls that can impact their potential.
