Parenting teens and young adults group coaching courses for parents and carers
Our five week Parenting Teens and Young Adults Group Coaching Course brings together a small group of parents and carers who look after a teenager or young adult that is on the autism spectrum.
The course offers a confidential and safe space to have constructive discussions which are themed around a topic or issue that is common among teenagers and young adults and provides an opportunity to think, reflect and plan in a supportive group environment.
Group coaching has the extra benefit of bringing people in similar situations together, enabling them to relate to each other and learn from each other. This also creates a community interested in discussing the same topics they are struggling with to help them overcome challenges, raise awareness and take action that is relevant to them.
This course costs £145 per person attending with the option to pay in installments. We also have some spaces available at a discounted rate for those on a low income - contact us to find out more.
All of Auternative Coaching's coaches are trained in wellbeing techniques and strategies that have been specially adapted for autistic people and their families.
Everything we do is built on a strengths based approach to autism.
We believe with the right support everyone can grow and develop the skills they need to lead a happy, fulfilling life.
The topics covered on our group parenting course are as follows:
Session One - Reconnecting with your autistic child.
Session Two - Dealing with conflict and negative thinking - Techniques and strategies that can help.
Session Three - Building on talents and strengths - How to boost your teenagers motivation and self belief.
Session Four - Creating a clear path ahead - A model for setting impactful goals.
Session Six - Looking ahead - What has worked well, what to take forward, what’s next?
What our clients say about us
"My coach helps me to keep in mind that I need to focus on things that are helpful for me, not just for my son.
"It’s helpful to have someone who is also a parent of a child with autism and she has useful ideas and experience about parenting an autistic child. She’s very friendly, kind and professional and someone who can listen and not judge me."
