Life Coaching For Teens

For students struggling to cope with the pressures of senior years at school.

If you're a parent and feel helpless seeing your son or daughter struggle with academic and social pressures that you have zero influence or control over, one of the best things you can do is seek out a strong role model and mentor for your teenager. As a former troubled teen herself, Kate has a natural empathy that kids gravitate to and relax around. She's relatable and relevant. She's also a highly skilled and credentialed life coach. What this means is she has a proven toolkit of perspective-shifting exercises and practices to help teens get to know themselves better—so they improve the way they approach personal and academic challenges.

How can life coaching help your teen?

  • Calm the stress around exams and academic success
  • Reduce overwhelm about the future and which path to pursue next
  • Diffuse the stressful negativity of poorly chosen friends, mismatched teachers, or troubled family life
  • Overcome the despair of a painful break up or friendship struggles
  • End ‘compare and despair’ social media anxiety
  • Push through to the finish line on a big goal—even when life has hit your teen with some serious sucker punches
  • Move forward, one tender step at a time, after a life crisis such as parents divorcing or a death in the family
  • Implement positive habits such as healthy eating, time management, and exercise

Life Coaching For Parents

For parents who wish their kids would listen to them.

If you're a parent who is having trouble connecting with your teen, you most likely have some work to do on youLearn how to express yourself so your kids stop tuning you out or jumping to the defensive. Evolve your listening skills so your son or daughter feels safe opening up about what's troubling them. Start prioritizing your own emotional, mental, and physical wellness so you can show up for your kids as your calmest, wisest, most patient self.

You're not Beyoncé

Which means you're probably juggling a lot of stress without much support—tending to your family, your marriage, your divorce, your career, your kids' activities, and your finances. It's normal that your teen's social and academic challenges make you feel overwhelmed, helpless, and slightly heartbroken.

Kate Fitzsimons is a certified life coach who can help you tap into your deepest strengths to find a positive path forward as you and your teen deepen your resilience skills together.

Life Coaching For Teachers

For EDUCATORS who are struggling to connect with the kids in their classrooms.

Teaching has changed significantly in the past ten years. With a myriad of fast-paced, impersonal ways to communicate, kids (and classroom behaviors) have evolved. Parents and educators often struggle to stay in the loop—and stay calm.

Learn to engage and motivate kids while maintaining a healthy and productive sense of resilience.

As an educator, you support so many. Who supports you? Working with Kate, you'll get personalized, one-on-one support and guidance to develop deep-rooted confidence that positively impacts the quality of your life in and out of the classroom. You'll also learn life coaching skills you can implement with your students to help them navigate the academic and social pressures of youth with more resilience.

"After seeing psychologists for several years and still feeling stuck with the same problems, I knew that it was time to try something different. In my first half-hour session with Kate, I felt like I had already gained so much knowledge. There was just a genuineness about Kate where it felt like you were really listening to what I was saying, and whilst she showed kindness and compassion towards the thought patterns I presented, she also never beat around the bush with her advice. This for me was important as it gave me the wake up call that I needed."

WHAT WILL WE DISCUSS IN THE CONSULTATION?

Your free half-hour consultation is a no-strings-attached phone call where Kate will answer your questions and make sure you're a good fit for each other. If you decide you'd like to move forward with a six-week coaching package, Kate will outline your next steps which include making your downpayment and getting started on your coaching pre-work. This short workbook will help you get clear on what you'd like to work on in your coaching sessions.


What is life coaching?

Life coaching is personalized support to help you move forward with your life—toward specific goals—as an emotionally resilient person. With Kate by your side, you'll knuckle down on solving your issues with intentional focus. As a certified life coach, she's professionally trained to help you shift the stubborn thought patterns that keep you stuck. You'll work from an emotional and cognitive level to get to the root of your problems and solve them permanently.

As your coach Kate will  provide accountability. She'll also gently, but firmly, challenge you to step outside your comfort zone or shift your perspective so you grow into the person you want to be. Together you'll find solutions to the current issues you're facing, and put them into practice by setting goals and making action plans. She'll help you break down your path forward into manageable steps—to transition from where you are now to where you want to go. You'll learn and practice tools to help you be mentally stronger, find greater joy, and feel like your life is on purpose.


What's the difference between life coaching and therapy?

Therapy and life coaching share similar traits, but each uses a different approach. Life coaching focuses on creating a new life path in order to achieve goals, whereas therapy sometimes looks into emotional resolutions to past problems in order to move forward.

Therapy can help you understand why you're not the person you want to be. Life coaching can teach you how to be the person you want and holds you accountable to become it.


How do I get started?

First, you'll determine if Kate is the right coach for you or your teen by scheduling a free half-hour consultation. During the call, Kate will answer any questions you have and learn a bit more about you and your goals. 

How many sessions are included in a coaching package?

You'll work with Kate for six weeks, meeting weekly on the same day, at the same time. You'll look forward to your weekly sessions as a time of personalized support, just for you.


How do the coaching sessions take place—by phone? In person?

Your sessions will take place via a private conference line. You'll receive access to Kate's call-in line in your new client Welcome Kit.


How much does a life coaching package cost?

Your six-session coaching package is a $1200 investment. Package payments are due in full upon signing as a new client.

Your coaching package includes:

  • Confidential email support between sessions.
  • A private Facebook page where Kate can connect with, uplift, and inspire you until your next session. She'll share videos, audios, books, podcasts, and other resources to keep you motivated and moving forward.

Do you offer payment plans?

No. Your package is an upfront investment in your future happiness. When you're invested, you'll show up—ready to take your coaching journey seriously. You'll be less likely to let yourself down by flaking out.


How do I know I'll like coaching?

You'll have plenty of time and opportunity during your consultation call to determine if Kate and her coaching style are a good fit for you and/or your teen.


Are there situations that aren't appropriate for life coaching?

Absolutely. Life coaching is not intended to help people recover from emotional or other psychological disorders such as clinical depression, anxiety, substance abuse, disordered eating, physical and emotional abuse, and any other psychological condition that requires a deep excavation of one's past to facilitate healing. Therapy would be the right protocol in those situations.


What if I need to cancel a session?

Individual sessions can be rescheduled with 24-hour advanced notice. Refunds for unexplained missed sessions are not given.

Client Success Stories

The results of coaching with Kate have blown my mind! I am able to stay positive and calm dealing with my ex husband. I am able to open up and be honest in my relationship. I am able to be more patient with my children. I have taken massive action towards creating a successful business that I love and the job of my dreams. I am on my way to achieving more goals with my fitness and hobbies. I am ticking off things that I have always wanted to do but haven’t had the determination to follow through with.
— Stacey Clark
Coaching with Kate has honestly been such a game changer for me. The growth that I have experienced since working with her has been in leaps and bounds—not only in my internal thought processes but also in how I show up to the world and how I interact with others. Kate has helped me become much less critical of myself and understand that I do not have to prove my worth to anyone, nor do I have to reach certain benchmarks to feel worthy. I have no regrets in signing up and think that if anyone needs the push to make positive changes in their life but doesn’t feel they can do it, Kate gives them the gentle push and tools to show them that they are capable of making those changes!
— Jaime Wickam
Before my first session with Kate, I was nervous and perhaps even a little bit apprehensive. However, from the moment the call connected for our first session, I felt a sense of ease. Although you are faced with tough questions and you are delving into the deepest crevices of your inner self that haven’t seen the light of day for years, there is absolutely no hint of judgment and you are always left with a range of tools to weave into each day of your life to ensure that you show up as the best version of yourself.
In the short time that I have had the honour of having Kate as my coach, I have noticed a real and significant shift in my self-confidence and in my resilience. I am more aware of the thoughts that I have and the impact that these thoughts have on my feelings and behaviour. I am beginning to embrace the idea of living life and dreaming on purpose, and this sparks a sense of excitement for the future.
— Avril Nadin
I was able to pour my heart out to Kate. It surprised me the areas that we covered. From the self depletion of a bad score on my assignments at university, to arguments with parents to feeling anxiety about the future, Kate provided me with an activity or a solution to the drama my thoughts were creating. I now have tools to prevent thoughts creating feelings that could be toxic to my success. Since coaching with Kate, my overall mood has changed. I’m able to go to sleep at night without a bunch of thoughts circling in my head. I’m able to wake up without dread and anxiety about scheduled tasks. I have a different outlook altogether. I feel the strength and confidence required to go outside of my comfort zone as I pursue my journalism career.
— Lauren Robinson
My mind set has shifted. I can see the differences in how I interact with people and how I view the things other people do. Also, I can see myself trying to turn situations into positives and if that can’t happen sitting with the feeling and repeating the mantra we created together. I have become a bit more open to people and I have matured more, in the sense that I don’t blame others for my feelings and I accept that I’m choosing to think a certain way about a situation which is making me feel a certain way. I have also noticed that I am trying to find the positives in all situations.
