What Skills do Young People
Learn through Coaching?

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.
