This FREE 5 day challenge reveals how busy parents can help their children get into university by working together to make the best choices and complete a successful application. Read on to find out more. Is your child just starting Year 13 or on their gap year? Normally, they'd be hard at work on their university applications by now, with the help of their school or college. This year, everything is different, and many students have had very little face-to-face time with their teachers. Whether your child is considering university for 2021 or deferring to 2022, they need to submit their application this Autumn. With disruption to education expected to continue throughout the next term, it's important that they are able to navigate the UCAS process with little direct support…

So how are young people supposed…

Ride the Waves! Life Coaching for Teens

About, Coaching
Do you know a young person who is feeling worried, stressed, overwhelmed or just not right? Are you looking for one-to-one support for your child? You’ve come to the right place. Working in the education sector, I'm all too aware of the scarcity of resources to support students when they need it most. I’ve spent nearly 20 years putting systems in place to make things better, but I STILL feel frustrated every time I have to turn a young person away because the next one is waiting in line, or because I’m rushing off to the classroom. That’s why I’ve devised Ride the Waves, the coaching package that’s designed especially for people aged 14-21. Clients get my undivided attention, for as much time as they want to book, and fully customised…
