The Virtual Coaching Service works with children and young people aged between 10 and 18. We support young people to develop coping strategies, increase confidence and build positive relationships and support networks. This helps them to improve and maintain their wellbeing.
The service is available Lancashire wide and can be accessed through referrals by parents, school staff and other services.
Throughout the sessions, a Lancashire Mind Wellbeing Coach will introduce young people to positive coping strategies through activities centered around the young person and the issue they are facing. This includes an introduction to the five ways to wellbeing, alongside practical tools such as mindfulness and breathing techniques.
Sessions are collaborative, with the young person encouraged to take ownership of the tools and techniques they learn and practice.
