I received something very special from a student this week to say thank you for making a difference to her life. She gave me some home-made cake and a lovely letter acknowledging the success she has achieved during the time we have worked together.
Through our coaching sessions this young lady committed to making some significant changes to her life. Combining determination and perseverance she has improved her behaviour in school over the last 3 months. This is a huge achievement and I feel very privileged to have been part of her successful journey.
Because of a change in her family circumstances she will be moving away from the area and starting at a new school after Easter. This helped give her the motivation and drive to do something different. Her goal was to start her new school with a positive reputation.
She achieved her goal with flying colours and if she continues with the strategies we have put in place then I am sure that she will do very well in her new school.
Coaching life skills to young people and seeing the difference it can make to their world is the whole reason I do what I do. It is rewarding, satisfying and sometimes mind blowing to see what they are capable of achieving and that makes me love my job.
If you know of a young person who is struggling in or out of school then please contact me.
Have a great week and a Happy Easter and see you after the holidays.
