A pilot study was conducted to assess the effects of life coaching on Year 12 students’ personal and academic development, specifically evaluating emotional well being, problem solving ability, relationships and academic performance. Students were randomly selected from consenting students within pastoral care groups. Two control groups of matched students were then selected from consenting students and from students who elected not to participate in the coaching. Data were collected from all students early in the year, before coaching and at a mid year point. No significant differences on any of the measures were found. Further data collection points will be at the end of twelve months and a follow-up one year after the students have left school.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
