Helping shape young futures

Hello and Welcome to Your Future Self a company set up with the sole intention to…


Let’s face it, being a young adult today can be tough and many are looking for change, inspiration and growth but don’t yet have the tools or know where to look.

Your Future Self was set up to help young people to transition into adulthood by building solid foundations for their future, using proven strategies to help them map their goals in all aspects of their life, let us introduce our Teen Life Program.

With over 25 years corporate experience, a background as a HR Manager and professional Recruiter I’m a Career and Business Strategist who wants to make a difference and that’s why Your Future Self was formed. Career and Life guidance should no longer be hard to find or available for those who are academically suited it should be accessible to ALL young adults so that our next generation are inspired to do more and be more.

We work with young adults from all backgrounds through our Teen Life Program and work with local education authorities where needed. Our program provides help for parents and young adults looking for additional guidance and support when faced with varying problems.


I founded Your Future Self having seen first hand that many of today’s young adults are slipping through the net. I believe that our Teen Life Program should be accessible to everyone so that our next generation are inspired to do more and be more.

What is a typical service like?

I tailor my services to meet the needs of my customers and clients.

How often are coaching sessions conducted?

Our sessions are conducted weekly with meetings lasting around an hour.

What are your hours of work?

Typically hours of work are 12-8pm to fit with working parents and teens in education though we would always work with you.

What are the benefits of working with you?

Apart from working with a team that have absolute belief in the changes teens can make to have a positive impact on their future, you also get so much more.

There are so many benefits to teens such as:

  • It helps with communication and confidence
  • It will help you with goals and becoming more focused
  • You will identify limiting beliefs
  • It will help with academic skills
  • It will help with organisational skills
  • It will help overcome fears
  • It will help identify your passion and career direction
  • It will help you with life skills
  • You will learn to ‘dream big’
  • It can connect you with others (on group programs)
Is it possible to have one single coaching session?

Coaching is not meant to be a quick fix and while a single session may result in a breakthrough the lasting change almost always occurs when a program is completed. We understand that fit is extremely important and so offer discovery sessions to see if the fit is there for us both.

I’m not sure my teen has time. How much extra work will coaching take?

Coaching is about growth and approaching work, responsibilities and challenges in a different way so there is no homework the work we do is on mindset.  The coaching sessions are spread out to give the teen time to think about the concepts learnt and try it out in different areas of their life.

I’m not sure my teen would see a coach. How would you approach this?

Explain that top performers from professional athletes to people in businesses all work with coaches.  We simply help people get to where they want to go by working with concepts that will most definitely have a positive impact on his life now and in the future.

Can you help with finding placements and college applications?

Yes, we give teens the tools they need to approach the college application process with less stress and more confidence.  As a result, you have a teen that feels empowered and is clear on the direction they are taking.

What do you cover in your coaching programs?

It depends on the individual.

Each session is tailored but we touch on thinking and learning styles, motivation, communication skills, relationship skills, recognizing limiting beliefs, changing habits, pinpointing passion, identifying strengths, and clarity around what’s next, avoiding overwhelm and social skills.
