Can Cognitive Behavioural Coaching (CBC), frequently used on promising executives to unlock potential and increase leadership skills, be used with Secondary School students to optimise performance? The answer to that is yes, it can!
Academic Performance Coaching is an extremely effective and evidence-based method to challenge unhelpful thinking errors which often lead to anxiety and procrastination, such as unhelpful perfectionism, self-doubt, pre-exam nerves, negative comparison and automatic negative thoughts and replacing those thoughts with realistic and helpful ones to build resilience, confidence and optimise performance.
- Acquire a range of skills and cutting-edge strategies to promote more flexible thinking and help your child develop and utilise their ‘inner coach’ as opposed to their often over-used ‘inner critic’
- Explore and master the key principles of CBC by helping your child to increase self-regulation and resilience and combat procrastination, pre-exam nerves, perfectionism and other self-handicapping behaviours
- Work on identifying and developing your child's Signature Strengths, to optimise motivation, resourcefulness and resilience in an academic context, as based on Professor Seligman’s Positive Psychology approach
- Utilise evidence-based techniques to help unlock your child's true potential by reducing the gap between actual and desired performance by setting, getting and excelling in academic goals, as well as using your child's unique strengths to fast track performance
