How can we coach your teenager if you don't live in Amsterdam?
That’s not a problem. Coaching can also take place via Skype. You just need to have a good reliable internet connection. We can also do it on the phone, although it is more difficult for the coach to get a good idea of how your teenager is thinking at any given moment. So that is our last resort.
