About Naomi Richards – The Kids Life Coach
I love being a coach for kids. I enjoy watching the children grow and gain confidence as we work together. It is so satisfying to see them implement new ideas, gain tools, change situations for the better and see them becoming happier, more relaxed children. I do this by showing them there is more than one way to solve a problem – there are lots! Some solutions are common sense and practical but many are innovative, creative and original. A subtle change to the way a child thinks or does can have a huge impact on their life.
I was the first life coach for children working in the UK and have been coaching since 2004. After starting a family, I wanted a change in career. Passionate about children, their growth, emotions and life skills I re-trained to be a life coach for kids. It is the perfect job for me. I am able to connect and work with a child quickly and make significant changes, which I love, and get to use my strong creative and problem-solving skills.
I work face to face and do Skype coaching internationally as a Life Coach for Children. I also run tailor-made workshops for kids in schools and regularly add my thoughts on the world of children and parenting in the press and on Sky News. I am a motivational speaker for children and author of ’The Parent’s Toolkit’ published by Random House and Being Me (And Loving It) published by Jessica Kingsley Publishing. In 2013 – 2015 I ran several ‘BE’ conferences for girls aged 11-13 years (empowering and uplifting) and in 2015 I launched several products to help families, parents and children.
