People with a
Passion for People

At New Insights we like to say that we 'live, eat and breathe life coaching'!

Seriously though, our whole business revolves around training people to become quality life coaches ... coaches who will help us deliver on our mission to bring greater Freedom, Confidence and Growth to people from all walks of life.

This website is for you if you're in any way interested in becoming a life coach or finding out more about life coaching.

Life coach training
that's unique ...

Our research shows that the great majority of people develop an interest in life coaching after working in employment for some time or a little later on in life. At this stage of their lives, most people are committed to busy jobs or important roles, such as stay-at-home mother, for example.

This makes it difficult to commit to regular attendance at workshops and seminars at times and locations decided by somebody else.

Such people want convenience and flexibility but at the same time they want training that is of the best-in-class, comprehensive, internationally acceptable, easy to apply and well supported.

We designed the New Insights Life Coach Training and Certification Programme to meet and exceed the needs of people just like this ... people like you perhaps?

A comprehensive and top quality home study programme packed with information covering all the life coaching theory, skills, concepts, tools, techniques, tips and psychology needed to become a great coach;


More than fifty hours of real life, hands-on structured practice coaching undertaken in accordance with a simple yet strict code of ethics.

Life coaching requires the considerate application of tools, techniques and concepts. In our opinion, becoming a life coach involves far more than just academic studies . It needs a structured approach and lots of practice.

By the way, you might notice that New Insights is a little different from most institutes when it comes to terminology. We refer to those enrolled on our training as 'Trainee Life Coaches' – not simply 'Students'!

With a coaching system
that's proven ...

Some training institutes believe their job is done once they've imparted the theory and a bit of classroom practice.

At New Insights we go well beyond that. Our life coach training programme includes access to ...

An amazingly effective, thoroughly eye opening
thirteen session life coaching system

... just the structure needed to boost the confidence of newly certified life coaches and yet one that is flexible enough to be used and/or adapted by more experienced coaches.

Support that's both
responsive and caring ...

At New Insights we want nothing more than to see our trainees become successful certified life coaches.

Not only is this important in achieving our mission but, quite frankly, our reputation hinges on how well our training is perceived to work ... and at the end of the day clients of the coaches we train will be the judge of that.

We make it our business to be on hand to answer questions and give advice whenever our trainees need it.

Apart from attentive support that's always on tap via telephone and/or email, we provide trainees with access to state-of-the-art online support facilities in the form of:

And backup that goes
beyond certification

To us at New Insights the responsibility for training someone to become a quality life coach goes beyond imparting life coaching theory and practical skills.

We know that to be successful you have to know how to establish, market and successfully expand your own life coaching practice.

That's why our Programme includes a wealth of material, drawn from many years of experience, to help you do just that.

Not only that but as a New Insights certified life coach you'll have the option to subscribe to our dedicated life coach directory and to use our state-of-the-art online journalling platform to promote your services.

We don't wave good bye to you once you've completed the training. We offer you a special place in our hearts for the long term because we know that ...
