Academic Mentor and Life Coach PgCert MA Dip Philosophy
As a certified Transformational Life Coach with over ten years of experience in private tuition, academic mentoring and the British independent school system, my strength lies in building rapport with adolescents and young adults and galvanising them to become motivated, resilient, sophisticated learners and doers. I work with clients in a variety of mentoring and coaching capacities: pure mentoring programmes typically run for clients of 14 – 18 years old in the independent school system; my coaching clients are typically aged between 15 – 25 years old.
Having spent several years working as an international private tutor and subsequently developing the mentoring arm of a global educational business, I became overtly aware of the gap in the adolescent space. The ‘pure-mentoring’ approach has yielded many successes and I am deeply proud of what the students I have worked with have achieved. Following my transformational life coach training and ongoing study of neuroscience however, I have become a staunch believer and effusive proponent of the idea that to fully actualise (coaching-speak for fulfilling potential and flourishing), today’s teenagers need more.
Whether working with adolescents who face the pressure of a mounting work load and public exams, or nurturing a young adult to take control of their future, my ethos is consistent: through challenging limiting beliefs, harnessing self-belief, developing self-discipline and targeting goals, everyone has the ability to maximise existing potential and surpass expectations.
