Empowering Young Hearts & Minds Through Expert Life Coaching & Mental Health Support

Welcome to Chance is Change, where we believe in providing every child and young person with the opportunity to change and succeed. Through community partnerships, collaboration with schools, parents, and agencies we aim to empower students to thrive academically and in their personal lives.

"Every chance is an opportunity to change."

Helping young children overcome behavioral and emotional challenges to become the best version of themselves

Here at Chance is Change we believe that every child and young person should be given a chance to change and to succeed. Our goal is to establish partnerships within the community, work collaboratively with school staff, parents and outside agencies for example the Police, promote continued care and inclusion for young people, and to create a positive pathway to further education.

By assessing a young person’s challenging behaviour, Interventions can be developed which are unique to the student, helping them to thrive and become successful in the classroom and outside the classroom.  Life coaching is an important factor in creating a positive platform for children and young people.
