Coaching Vs Counselling… which is better for your Child or Teen?
The world we live in right now is very challenging and problematic for young people.
The complexities, the huge (and increasing) level of information to try and process, the confusion of social identity, the influences of social media… it all mounts up and the ability to make appropriate choices and diminishes decision making.
The result… confidence and self esteem takes a hit.
In fast-changing times like these, it’s more dangerous than ever to rely on ineffective outworn or old-skool techniques, formulas and “mind-hacks.”
Today in these unprecedented times, Kids and Teens need the most effective and practical support to help them navigate through tough times and steer out of challenging situations.
They need a Coach full of energy and genuine connection.
Below are just some of the issues Children/Teens can experience today:
Lack of Confidence
Difficulty Making New Friends
Low Self Esteem and Body Confidence
Bullying (also Bullying Psychology)
Shame and Embarrassment
Shyness and Introvert Tendencies
Lacking Self Belief
Lack of Self Motivation
Increased Anger and Explosiveness
Spending too Much Time on their Phone
Overly Sensitive and Reactive
Assertiveness and Self Talk
Getting into Trouble
These are just a few examples of the challenges and issues young people are facing today.
Leaving many Parents in a state of confusion and frustration, asking themselves… “what should I do”?
Some look at Counselling or Therapy Services such as:
Whilst some young people require specialist interventions because of the severity of the situation, the majority don’t require Therapy or deep Counselling and this is where practical, personal and pro-active coaching comes into its own.
This is whereCHAMPS Academyhas excelled, quickly becoming the number 1 choice for Parents from across the world.
Many Parents have shared with Annette that in situations where their child has received therapy or counselling have said it works to a degree whilst in situ, but then often wains or reverts back to before… resulting in more Therapy/Counselling being required.
The other major problem, depending on how the organisation is structured (such as CAMHS), is the long waiting times (up to 2 years in some cases) and eligibility criteria (not a high enough risk to warrant treatment), which leaves young people at the effect of the problem, exasperating their feelings.
The sooner mental health or psychological problems are addressed (and sorted out with practical Coaching support) the better it will be for the child/teen without their mental health, education and home life declining.
One of the best things about Coaching with CHAMPS Academy is you’re getting access to one of the Top Experts in the World on Child Psychology, the Award Winning Annette Du Bois
With many of the services above, you don’t know who you’re going to get as the counsellor? The connection, communication and rapport between the Coach and your child/teen is of paramount importance and can make ALL the difference, in fact is the difference that makes the difference!
Annette is their friend, guide and mentor.
Annette is a very busy and in-demand full time Coach, at time of writing this the average wait time is in the region of 10-14 days. Not 2 years!!!
Why Getting Coached with Annette is the ONLY choice
Unlike Therapy or Counselling, Annette offers positive, practical and real-world strategies for young people.

Annette focuses on results and actions a young person can take to change how they feel.
Annette will help your child/teen set specific Confidence and Life-Skill-Goals which can be measured through key situational indicators and specific behavioural outcomes.
Based on over 19 years of proven, effective results Annette will help your child/teen go from desperate to empowered in the shortest possible time.
