Meet Coach Jenn

Hi, I’m Jennifer Close – a mom; counselor and life coach. With nearly a decade of school counseling experience, I understand the academic pressures, social dynamic, and have a unique ability to truly connect with teens and young adults.

I absolutely love helping my clients move from where they are now to where they want to be. Instead of looking back on their previous situations and experiences, the focus in our coaching programs is to look ahead and move towards overall wellness through the lens of mindfulness.

Thank you for visiting Jennifer Close Coaching!

Why Coaching?

Teen and young adult life can be hard and I understand the need for extra support.  I coach and counsel clients using mindfulness strategies and techniques to guide toward a bright future.

My goal is to help young adults embrace their unique selves while shifting their mindsets. Once clients better understand who they are, what they need, and where they want to go, they feel in control of their mind. This results in more confidence and improving their overall wellness mentally, emotionally, physically, and academically.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What program should we start with?

It depends on the needs of the client, but we recommend the Teen Talk Group Program for our teens, which focuses on discovering their best selves through mindfulness tools, making connections with peers, embracing their uniqueness, and making personal goals. Afterwards, our Grace + Grind private sessions will take the tools learned from the group and use it to deepen the clients tool box of strategies and create an individual action plan. For our clients who have graduated high school, we recommend the private sessions to get started on an individual action plan. All clients will quickly make positive changes whether it be emotionally, mentally, physically, spiritually or academically.

What age clients do you work with?

I work with middle, high-school and college age students. Each coaching program is tailored to the specific age group.

Are you a counselor?

For nearly a decade I’ve worked with teens as a high-school counselor in Milford, CT.  I understand the academic pressures, social dynamic, emotional struggles and abilities of the counseling department. Coupled with my coaching skills, I have a unique ability to connect with teens and move them from where they are now to where they want to be.

How do I know if my child needs a life coach?

All teens and young adults can greatly benefit from life coaching. Here are some of the needs of our clients (one or more may pertain to your child):

Calming Techniques and Coping Strategies

Social Fears

  • Making friends
  • Socializing with peers
  • Managing school situations
  • They are not involved in extracurricular activities
  • They need support in finding a job

Fear of Not Doing Well

  • Workload is overwhelming
  • Their school/activity responsibilities are too much
  • Certain situations are making them nervous

Mindset Shift, Increasing Motivation and Self Confidence

Fear That They Don’t Know What To Do

  • They don’t care about school.
  • They don’t care about not attending.
  • They have negative feelings and are not sure how to change that.
  • They are unsure what to do next with their life
  • They are not sure what to study in college

Academic Support

Fear of Failing

  • They are missing work
  • They don’t hand in assignments on time
  • They are failing tests
  • They don’t know how to manage their workload

Are your programs virtual or in-person?

We have both a virtual and in-person option for our Grace + Grind private program. However, Teen Talk is in-person.

How long are your coaching programs and what is the format?

Typically my coaching programs are 8 weeks long except our Teen Parent Workshop which is a single session either privately or in a group setting. The format is very informative, hands-on often with activities, and of course we have some fun! Private Coaching is 30 minutes, while group is 45 minutes – I understand the busy schedules of my clients.

Our Mission

My mission is to help students better understand who they are, what they need, and where they want to go. By first understanding you, and then planning for what you want to do. Limiting beliefs and mindset are two of the biggest roadblocks to overcome when it comes to battling stress, low self-esteem or poor academics.

Our mindset affects our outcome. Beliefs become thoughts. Our thoughts become feelings. Our feelings impact our actions. Our actions create our results. So, instead of just teaching ways to act differently, we go much deeper starting with our inner beliefs.  Using mindfulness tools, we are able to pause to reflect on our thoughts. What’s on the inside creates our life on the outside.

No matter the limiting belief, we work to change these to new positive thoughts, which is completely transformative.  (I’m too shy to make friends, I’m too far behind, I won’t graduate, I’m not pretty enough and so on).

Wellness encompasses many areas such as mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual. Our mindfulness coaching is an all-in-one approach.

Our Mission

high school life coach Milford CT

My mission is to help students better understand who they are, what they need, and where they want to go.  First understand you, and then plan for what you want to do. Limiting beliefs and mindset are the biggest roadblocks to overcome issues teens often face whether it be anxiety, self-esteem, or academics.

There’s never anything wrong with our teens. Our mindset affects our emotions and reactions. Beliefs become thoughts. Our thoughts become emotions. Our emotions become actions. So, instead of just teaching ways to act differently, we go much deeper starting with our inner beliefs.  What’s on the inside creates our life on the outside.

No matter the limiting belief, we teach how to change these to new positive beliefs which is completely transformative.  (“I’m too shy to make friends,” “I’m too far behind; I won’t graduate,” “I’m not pretty enough,” and more).
