Lynne Power
The Journey to Life Coaching

I am passionate about empowering children to develop the skills they need to manage the challenges of growing up in the 21st century and quite simply to be the best they can be.


After a long career in the classroom it became clear to me that children were facing more and more challenges at a social and emotional level, and that these challenges were affecting their ability to achieve their full potential. Quite often all that was needed was a quiet and timely conversation where the children were made aware of the skills they could use to help them deal with their challenge.


Sound mental health and wellbeing has become a major concern in the 21st century. Over the years I worked with many children with a wide variety of challenges and the joy that I received from witnessing these children grow and gain confidence as a result of these quiet conversations, ignited my passion to make this my life’s work. I was inspired to pursue a qualification as a life coach and build a business to support children and their families to be the best they can be.


The result was Toolkit Coaching.


My Mission


My mission is empower children with the life skills they need to thrive in today’s world. F Douglass’ statement ‘it is easier to build strong children than to repair broken adults’ lies at the very heart of Toolkit Coaching.


As a coach, I believe that the earlier we can lay foundations for success the better. I specialise in working with children between the ages of 5 and 18 and my passion is to work with children when the problem is small. This will then equip them with the necessary skills to meet any greater challenges that may come along.


Even though parents and carers are the best people to coach their kids, I realise that parents, carers need support as well. When these significant adults in a child’s life gain strength and encouragement to face their challenges, the children will be heartened to do the same. Toolkit also offers support for parents and carers who may be finding the task of meeting their child’s needs



It is a real privilege to support children and families with social skills and strategies for living their best life.


Toolkit Coaching specialises in coaching children between the ages of 5 and 18 to be the best they can be.


Today’s world is a very different one to the one we grew up in. Technology, social media and the 24/7 nature of our world today brings challenges that did not exist 20 years ago.  By assisting children to build a strong skillset we can help them manage the challenges they face in our busy 21st century. Toolkit coaching works alongside parents and carers to help their children survive and thrive in this current environment.
