The Become Coaching Programme

Is it time for you to make a change?

If you're aged 16 - 25, care-experienced and live in or near London, then the Become Coaching Programme is for you.

Coaching helps you think about and move forward in your life. 

It's not the same as working with a counsellor, mentor or adviser. They all do valuable things, but a coach offers something different. In coaching, you create your own personal goals which you work towards. A coach helps you think in different and more useful ways, opening your mind to new possibilities.

Taking part in the Become Coaching Programme will give you the chance to:

  • create your own personal goals and work towards achieving them;
  • learn about yourself and your strengths;
  • understand how your thoughts, feelings and behaviour work together;
  • learn how to build healthy, lasting relationships with other people.

You'll be matched with one of our friendly coaches, who'll work with you in one hour, face-to-face meetings every two weeks.

Sessions take place at Become’s headquarters in Islington, London, on weekdays between 9am and 6pm. You'll also attend fun group sessions - four in total. Your time on the Become Coaching Programme will last around six months.

The Become Coaching Programme is free. It does not cost you anything to take part.
