Coaching helps the coachee to identify exactly what they want, where they are now, and how to get there. Put simply, coaching is a non-directive confidential conversation, where the coach listens and asks questions and acts as a guide for individual learning. The coach creates a framework that enables the ‘coachee’ to work out their own solutions to a problem. This is an empowering experience for the coachee. In this approach, the coach generally avoids giving content especially suggested solutions. Effectively the coachee or young person engaged is participating in self-directed learning, and is gaining the tools and skills to enable them to find solutions to their situation. The coaching relationship is finite and therefore has an end.
