Kids Life Coach Academy

Level 1: Theory of Kids Life Coaching

Hi, I'm Zelna Lauwrens, co-founder of The Secret Parent Foundation, founder of The Kids Life Studio® Global Group and developer of all online programmes on this Kids Life Coach Academy School.

During my almost two decades as a former school teacher, university lecturer, counsellor, psychologist and kids life coach,  -- I have come to realise one thing.

Being a children's change maker is about taking action.

I have met so many well meaning professionals and whilst they all have good intentions to improve children's mental wellbeing and build resilience, I started to discern WHY so many of them were not able to follow through and achieve results. 

I have spoken to thousands of people from all walks of life around the world - psychologists, parents, social workers, teachers, adult life coaches, healers, therapists, sports coaches, nannies and au pairs. They all agree that...

"CHILDREN ARE FACED WITH MORE TOXIC INFLUENCES THAN EVER BEFORE AND WE NEED TO FIND A SOLUTION." 

If you are reading this, you possibly feel the same way. You want to be part of the solution and support children to become the leaders of their own life.

My guess is that you have already done a lot of groundwork into mental wellbeing for children through reading books, attending courses or listening to podcasts. You wouldn't be reading this if you weren't an eager scholar in mental wellbeing for children.  

I know this, because when I first started my journey coaching children in 2003, that was me!

I really struggled to fit all of the puzzle pieces together. There was so much information out there and so many amazing programmes that I felt overwhelmed by where to start and how to take action. So I started researching and I found the BEST methods MOST applicable to children, however there were none that were conclusive and comprehensive. 

What I found was that they were all missing one simple fundamental thing....

PLAY IS THE LANGUAGE OF CHILDHOOD

This is how my unique coaching system was born!  I included what was working in all the scientific research and I ,discarded what wasn't working! Simple!

My Play Based Coaching® is an approach based on the fundamentals of neuroscience and psychology but as a self confessed academic geek....I have seen a glaring gap between theory and practice.  

It frustrates me that so many people attend theory after theory training and their manuals and course materials gather dust on their shelves afterwards!

This Level 1 Theory of Kids Life Coaching is different!

I want to help you to gain clarity into the psychology of childhood and give insight into the well researched evidence that empowers toddlers to teens to navigate life’s challenges easily.

BUT....

I want you to take action on this!

With a strong focus on building resilience, leadership and a confident mindset in children, this training provides practical solutions to the challenges young people may be facing in their everyday lives. 

If you are tired of trying to figure things out. You are still reading endless books and attending endless courses, let me jump start your understanding of 'the language of childhood' with this interactive research based training. 

This Level 1: Theory of Kids Life Coaching is a foundation for learning about the fundamentals of how toddlers to teens think, learn, act and behave.  My intention is to inspire you to tap into your own natural inner Life Coach that every single adult has!

So whether you are a parent, teacher, therapist, social worker, life coach or any other profession relating to children, this content can be adapted and applied to your own unique context. 

You will learn....

  • The skills for nurturing your natural inner Life Coach that you can immediately put to use.
  • How to assess how happy a child is and if they are at risk for mental health problems.
  • An easy to implement toolkit of life skills you can share with any child no matter their background or circumstances.
  • A Play Based Coaching® system for motiving children to become the leader of their own life despite the challenges they may be facing.
  • An introduction to our secret recipe that our global team of Kids Life Studio® Coaches are successfully using.

So how will you be doing this...

In my experience, once off online training that is self paced and has no accountability does little for long-lasting impact. This is why we offer a unique opportunity to attend online bi-weekly mentorship sessions! 

Although this theory training has been designed for you to participate at your own pace and in your own time in the comfort of your own home we want to keep you on track!  

To help you, all of the work has been chunked down for you to complete in a minimum of 6 weeks and maximum of 3 months to make your learning easier and to ensure that you absorb the maximum benefit.  Research has shown that this is the optimal time frame for maximising your learning when focusing on new content matter. The intention is for you to gain practical insight and knowledge into the fundamentals of "How to become a Kids Life Coach".  

I need to whisper a secret out loud here....

If you are looking for another manual to gather dust on your shelf...you aren't going to find it here.

Disclaimer: By participating in this training, you are going to experience a mindset shift, resulting in intense personal transformation. If you were only looking for theory without accountability this may not be the training for you. 

So where was I....?

Although you will be provided with a Theory manual, you will be encouraged to challenge your belief systems and 'think out of the box'!  I want you to feel empowered to tap into your own inner wisdom and put your own puzzle pieces together.  In fact, I encourage this....since this is not an academic training but rather an opportunity to practically apply yourself.  

You see I accept and respect that you may have a different background to me or the thousands of students who have completed this training, so your experience and outcomes will look different. 

But I can guarantee this...

By applying yourself for a minimum of 5 hours a week over 6 weeks, you will have reframed faulty beliefs about what you can and can't do to support children.  You will change your mindset and lay the foundation for coaching children through play. 

It doesn't stop there.

Through your commitment, by the end of this theory training, you will have new insights into "How to become a Kids Life Coach" and you can choose to pursue your Level 2 Kids Life Coach training to become fully certified in my Play Based Coaching® System. 

Life Coaching for children has in recent years become a buzz word. This is because many people just like you, have seen that children around the world are being exposed to risk factors beyond their control. This is causing a decline in the quality of childhood and an increase in mental health problems.  

Now is your chance to be part of the solution!

Whether it is in your own home as a parent, in your classroom as a teacher or in your therapy practice as a social worker or psychologist, or on the sports field as a coach...

It is time to take action!

Since you are still reading this, I assume it means that you have chosen to become part of the solution and take action. 

Prevention is always better than cure so this training is aimed at giving you a foundation for supporting children so that they can be equipped to deal with life’s curve balls with confidence.
