Dear World Changer

Hi, I’m Zelna Lauwrens, founder of The Kids Life Studio® and developer of all online programmes on the Kids Life Coach Academy School

For over two decades, I have worked with thousands of children and adults using my play based coaching methods I first pioneered in 2003. Back then, when I first started coaching children, I remember how overwhelmed I felt trying to navigate myself around an unknown field with no track record. The worst thing was the isolation I felt working on my own without any experts available back then to guide me. Never knowing if what I was doing was right.

Through trial and error, lots of sleepless nights, extensive research, and pure persistence, I managed to find my way, and I now lead a global network of life coaches for children committed to supporting children in their local communities.

With my previous experience as a former school teacher, university lecturer, kids life coach, with a Masters Degree in Clinical Child Psychology and undergoing my Doctorate in Psychiatry at Oxford University, I believe it takes more than reading a manual or attending a quick fix once off training to coach children. It takes hard work, and you need to be willing to invest your time into building a solid foundation backed up by ongoing education.

The good news is that I have packaged my years of experience so that you can fast track this process and be working with children ethically, sustainably and lucratively in your own community in less than a year.

Our Kids Life Studio® trainings have been designed to be completed online in the comfort of your own home. With no set start dates, you are free to join anytime with immediate access to optional twice weekly live group mentorship sessions over a set time frame. The best part is that because our highest value is relationships, you will never feel alone in building your kids life coaching practice.

If you are ready to get started, you can head over to our Kids Life Coach Academy School and enrol in your 6-week Level 1 Theory of Kids Life Coaching. You will need to complete a portfolio of evidence and after you get your certificate, you will have the option to take your training further and become a certified Level 2 Kids Life Studio® Coach and Level 3 Advanced Kids Life Studio® Coach in less than a year.

If you are interested in personalised mentorship to support your training, you can enrol in the Fast Track Level 1 – 3 saver package which includes support to accelerate building your coaching practice. This requires an application and screening process and as part of this, you are asked to submit your expression of interest form below. Once you have completed your form, you will be invited to choose a time and date for a 15-minute interview with me.
