LIL' GEMS: #GIRLS #ENGAGED #MOTIVATED #SHINE
Don't Let Your Past Define Your Future
Lil’ Gems ‘life’ coaching is a 1:1 bespoke SOLUTION FOCUSED experience.
This service is a 1:1 contemporary program for girls / young women AGED 13 PLUS (no upper age limit).
The service is delivered by experienced practitioners who have a range of expertise in youth work, mentoring, coaching and lifestyle management. Sessions take place 1-1 with a female worker with an enhanced DBS check in a suitable venue. Coaching and mentoring DO NOT take place in the home environment.
Life coaching is a process used to promote independent thinking and encourages the young person to explore solutions to managing their own difficulties in life. In view of this, individuals must fully engage with the process and be willing to make positive changes in their life.
Life coaching is not a counseling service and a full assessment of suitability will be determined based on referral details and discussion with the young person.
If it is deemed at any stage that the individual requires specific therapeutic intervention Ruff & Ruby will signpost to other relevant agencies and support services as appropriate.
IF A YOUNG PERSON IS ALREADY ENGAGING WITH OR AWAITING AN APPOINTMENT WITH A THERAPEUTIC INTERVENTION (MENTAL HEALTH SERVICE / COUNCILLOR / PSYCHOLOGIST ) THEY CAN’T ACCESS THE LIFE COACHING SERVICE TILL THEY HAVE COMPLETED THAT SPECIFIC INTERVENTION.
If the young person does not attend the coaching sessions or life lift experience on two consecutive occasions (except for circumstances such as validated illness or bereavement) then the team will discuss with you their suitability to continue accessing the service.
REFERRALS..WE LIKE TO CALL ‘INTRODUCTIONS’!

“I always feel better after coaching. It helps me to get things off my chest & then make a plan to change things”
