So I’m sat in a room with a number of coaches and trainee coaches, we’re all excited to be together and interested in learning something new. I will admit that although I was interested in learning something new, I didn’t really envision myself holding parenting workshops or targeting parents specifically as I work predominately with young people aged 12-16.
