Life Coaching 101

New Insights Life Coaching 101
is an excellent, yet affordable, home study based,
foundation course in life coaching.

This is a 'must-do' course if you are interested in becoming a practising life coach but feeling in any way unsure about taking the next step, or confused about which route to take to get there!


Enrolment in this Introductory Course does not require any pre-qualifications or other prior course completion requirements.

You should simply have an interest in life coaching and a desire to find out more about what it entails and whether it is right for you.

Completion of New Insights Life Coaching 101 is also not a prerequisite for enrolling in our full certification programme, although it is recommended for those who are uncertain about whether to make the investment in certification training.

The course objectives:

New Insights Life Coaching 101 has been specifically designed and written by personal development expert, and MD of New Insights, Bill Burridge, for those who want to gain a good grounding in life coaching as a step towards deciding whether to invest in professional certification training.

The objectives of this course are to:

  • provide a sound foundation in life coaching; and
  • provide a decision support tool for those who need assistance with deciding on whether to pursue life coaching as a career.

The course content:

New Insights Life Coaching 101 consists of three easy-to-read, information-packed Modules, which include numerous thought provoking ideas, examples and practical exercises, and which are yours to keep as a handy reference guide:

Module One

In Module One you'll explore:

  • what life coaching is;
  • how it differs from other forms of coaching;
  • why it is such a fascinating and rewarding career;
  • what lies at the heart of life coaching;
  • what it’s really like to be a life coach; and
  • what it takes to be successful.

Module Two

Module Two is designed to impart to you:

  • a high level overview of the life coaching skills, tools, techniques and concepts that a trainee life coach can expect to study and practice;
  • insights into your own life and what makes you tick;
  • a glimpse of the true power of life coaching.

Module Three

Module Three will support you in:

  • getting real clarity on what you want from life;
  • testing how well suited you are to a career in life coaching;
  • overcoming inertia and dealing with your ‘what ifs’;
  • developing a personal plan of action to kick-start your life coaching journey.

Course commencement and duration:

As New Insights Life Coaching 101 is a home study course, you have the convenience of being able to start whenever it suits you.

You have total flexibility to study the material and complete the exercises in your own time and at your own pace within the six month period allowed.

By spending just a few hours per week reading the material and completing the exercises you should easily be able to complete the course within a period of three weeks to three months.

Course assessment:

The course is assessed by way of:

  • Mini Assignments to be completed and submitted after Modules One and Two. These are not formally marked by New Insights but are commented upon.
  • A Short Exam which you can book to take after completing all three Modules. The exam will be emailed to you under a strict confidentiality clause. You will need to complete it within the allotted time and return it via email or fax to New Insights.

Should you wish to receive official acknowledgement for completing the course you must complete the requirements above within six months of the date on which you register.

Limited period special upgrade offer:

If you choose to register for the full New Insights Life Coach Training and Certification Programme (CLASSIC or PRO option) within three months of successfully completing Life Coaching 101, you will qualify for a generous discount, equivalent to:

50% of the Life Coaching 101 course fee!

In effect this means you will be refunded for half of the Life Coaching 101 course fee if you decide to register for the full certification programme.

What could be fairer than that?

What you can do with this course:

This course is designed to prepare you to take the next step towards becoming a life coach – viz. to complete a full life coach certification training course – should you decide that this is the direction you would like to take.

New Insights Life Coaching 101 is not a prerequisite for certification training but it is strongly recommended as it will help you to better understand what life coaching can offer you and whether this is a career you are cut out for.
