Mentoring & Coaching

“Treat people as if they are what they ought to be, and you help them to become what they are capable of becoming.” – Goethe

Mental well-being and mindfulness are of ever-increasing importance especially in this crazy world we inhabit and in light of various recent global events. It has never been more important to have an outlet to share and vent.

Next Stage Coaching can help provide that outlet with a calm and reassuring manner. Guidance and care are given to help you, or your child/young person find their own way and empower them to shape their future.

We all face challenges in life, from messing up the painting in primary school, to being picked last for the team in middle school, to always being in the chorus in the senior school production. Assessments, tests, exams, university applications – they all have an impact on our lives, on our confidence, on our ability to think forward and see our next step. Being a Third Culture Kid or living an ex-pat lifestyle throws up its own unique challenges too.
People never understand, our parents don’t always get it and then suddenly we are out there in the “real” world and we’re scared, we don’t know as much as we think we do and we never did learn to iron that shirt. YouTube can help with some life-skills, Next Stage Coaching can help with the rest – even ironing lessons!

“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if only one remembers to turn on the light.”

Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore, former Hogwarts Headmaster
