Giant provides helpful case illustrations of working with
children... The worksheets,, are indeed clear and well drawn and
have been created with a view to reproduction... Some of the tools
could also be used by teachers in PSHE lessons, at home by parents
or carers. -- Carolyn Mumby, coach-therapist * BACP Children &

This book describes working as a life coach with children and young people in different settings. The author explains concepts and strategies... what life coaching is, why it can be used with children and young people, its practice and its application in school an home settings... The author's descriptions of multiple possible levels of coaching in the school settings, composed of whole-school, curriculum- and pastoral-based programmes... The Activities and Worksheets section has a range of themed activities and resources that will appeal to different practitioners. New coaches will find a wealth of advice, support, tips and resource material... This is an interesting and useful book that I hope will stimulate more thinking and debate about what life coaching is and will prove a valuable resource to anyone who works with children and young people. -- Denise Yusuf, freelance coach * Coaching Today *
