Katie SmithVerified Certified Play Based Coach - Katie Smith Children’s Life Coach


Hi, I’m Katie. I believe every child deserves the chance to reach their true potential.

What do I do?

Alongside the Kids Life Studio I work with children from 6-12 years in the Lymington and Hampshire area to coach and mentor them through the ups and downs of life. Over a period of 3-7 months I work 1-to-1 and in partnership with families to build:

Confidence, self-esteem, a positive self-image, communication skills, social skills, family & peer relationships, behaviour, resilience, stress management, emotional intelligence, motivation, optimism, academic performance, independence, goal-setting, a healthy mind, body & attitude.

How do I do it?

Kids Life Coaches provide unconditional support to children and teenagers throughout childhood, adolescence and beyond. We work to a tailor-made programme with a toolkit for long term success based on a unique understanding of each and every child. Using evidence based and current research our coaching programme uses play-based coaching and child psychology to support positive changes, for life. We develop and put in place fundamental skills that every child (and future adult) needs to live a happy life. We believe that by implementing this toolkit for life now, every child we coach then has the opportunity to reach their true potential. This is particularly important to prevent problems from spiralling out of control.

Why do I do it?

I have worked with young children for over 15 years and transitioned to Kids Life Coaching having become increasingly aware of the mental health issues facing the current generation of children. Life is never without its challenges and the modern life in which our children grow up in, is tougher than ever. As a parent of two young children my deepest wish is for them to grow up happy, successful, loving, confident, brave, inspired, and motivated. And I sincerely wish the same for every child – which is why I am a Kids Life Coach. Every child has a spark within them, a unique potential that should be nurtured and supported. Every child is born with this spark, this energy, enthusiasm, and capability, but so often through life, school, circumstances it is dampened or allowed to go out. We don’t believe this should ever be the case and we put every child we work with on the road to a happy, successful life. I believe the life of a child is enhanced by the unconditional support of a life coach and mentor. If your child is facing everyday or long-term challenges or you simply want to provide them with a toolkit to successfully navigate life with confidence, then do get in touch to ask any questions about our coaching programme.
