Children at times need support and help to work out how to move ahead or deal with things in life. They are learning at all times. Life coaching is a perfect tool to give right guidance and plenty of encouragement through which kids develop confidence, determination, resilience and effective emotional intelligence.

Youth coaching is an offshoot of life coaching designed specifically for teenagers and youth. It encourages personal development in young people and teenagers while helping them to express in a positive environment to let go off any anxieties or stresses that may be holding them back.
Whether it’s a child or a teenager or a young adult , as they begin their independent lives in school or colleges where they are out of the protective shelter of their homes and parents they may become vulnerable and may need support to make the right choices in their lives. Ektaa aims at facilitating you with a foundation for supporting, nurturing and comforting children so that they can be equipped to deal with life’s curve balls with confidence.
Ektaa’s methodology of Life coaching for children and youth deals in three aspects –
Being Happy – Every person deserves to be happy even when the life gets tough, to see an opportunity in every challenge makes you different from others. Children or teenagers need support when times get tough so that they can see their learning in every challenge.
To Encourage – Children need motivation to make positive choices and use their strengths to reach their utmost potential and take informed and right decisions.
To Inspire – It’s important to kindle a child’s spirit especially if they have had a challenging or a difficult phase in their lives; they deserve to have all the required support to reach for their dreams and become an inspiration for others.

The coaching sessions for kids or teenagers are delivered in any of the following ways
Option 1 – “3+1” session – where a fixed 3 sessions of one hour each are conducted with the child or the teenager. One final session is where the summary and findings are shared with the parents along with tips for coaching at home. The summary also consist certain Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques to eliminate un-resourceful thinking patterns that may create challenges in Kids’ life and limit their success and happiness.
Option 2 – Consistent One-on-One coaching sessions of 1.5 hrs for a consistent approach towards building certain aspects in the personality of the child.
Option 3 – A combination of Option 1 and Option 2
Ektaa’s approach towards coaching is to focus on solution instead of the problem. She works from an outcome frame where the emphasis is to help the child grow and work on the strengths instead of looking at elements to fix the child.
