Hi I am Naomi Richards and I am a life coach for children. It is the best job in the world – well for me it is anyway. I love empowering children to solve problems for themselves and giving them the skills they need for life. I enjoy helping them see that there is more than one way to solve a problem – there are lots! Some are common sense and practical but many are innovative, creative and original. Sometimes just a subtle change to the way a child thinks or does can have a huge impact on their life at school or at home.
I have been a Life Coach for Children since 2004. After starting a family I decided I wanted to work for myself. I wanted to do something I was passionate about and make a difference as well as being able to dictate my own working hours. Taking my children to school and sitting down doing homework with them were high on my agenda. But what did that look like? I loved being creative, I was good at helping others work towards solving their own problems and had many years experience of working with children informally. When I put my skills and passion together I realised there was only thing for me – Life coaching kids!
I now work face to face and do Skype telephone coaching as a Life Coach for Children. I also run tailor-made workshops for kids, write for many parenting, teenage and women’s magazines and I regularly add my thoughts on the world of children and parenting in the press and on radio. I am a motivational speaker for children and a trainer for organisations on many child-related topics. I am an Agony Aunt for Bliss Magazine and I am the author of ’The Parent’s Toolkit’ published by Random House. Finally I have been recognised as a Remarkable Woman – a female entrepreneur who is leading the way in a chosen career path – an initiative backed by Nokia.
