Sometimes, working directly with a teenager, rather than just with his or her parents, can be very effective. In these sessions, I work together with the young person to identify a goal that they want to achieve and then, in partnership, we determine how they can get there. This service requires parental consent, if under 18.
The goal may relate to any number of things, such as:
Improving social skills
Obtaining a sporting / academic accomplishment.
By having someone to talk to, who isn’t a friend or loved one, teenagers are often able to see things in a new light. This is very important, and often very rare.

I engaged Trevor’s services as a Parent Coach to help me deal with my 8yr old whom had a lot of social anxiety, anger and decision making conflicts!…I can honestly say I found each session very productive and really worked on coming up with positive goals as we explored different ideas and thinking. I was apprehensive before starting but Trevor was a pleasure to work with.

I was initially very sceptical of the benefits of coaching – I wrongly imagined it as a pep talk with lots of feel-good clichés and platitudes. Instead, it was a tremendously constructive process that helped me finish a project I had been putting off for a decade, while also helping me realize why I had been procrastinating for so long. I’m thankful for Trevor’s help and recommend him wholeheartedly!

Trevor worked with parents who were struggling to keep their children on track and in school. I believe much of the success of our School Completion Project in the last school year was due to Trevor’s input. Parents felt a genuine connection to him. I will work with Trevor again in this academic year.
