Free Life Coaching

SIMPLY volunteer to help our trainee life coaches meet their certification requirements

volunteer for free life coaching

Please BE SURE TO read before posting

What's this all about?

New Insights trainee life coaches are required to conduct extensive practice coaching as part of the requirements for their certification. 

They are required to find a number of volunteers to practice with and to help them we have put together this page to link them with members of the public who may wish to volunteer for coaching sessions.

Am I eligible to post here?

Yes, as long as you are either:

  • a member of the public wanting free life coaching (a volunteer CLIENT); or
  • a bona fide TRAINEE life coach who is registered and in good standing with New Insights

If neither of the above apply to you we will not approve your post.

Is the coaching really free of charge?

Yes, our trainees generally do not charge for practice coaching. However, depending on the circumstances, some may request a nominal fee to cover any costs they may incur.

 What can I expect as a volunteer client?

Well, firstly, please bear in mind that these are trainee life coaches.

They are neither qualified, nor experienced coaches. If you want or need an experienced and certified coach please visit our Life Coach Directory. If you're thinking of training with us and want to try out a session we recommend this approach.

Secondly, coaching will be conducted in the trainee's personal capacity. Although the coach may use the New Insights Life Coaching System, New Insights is not in any way responsible for the quality of coaching you will receive.

Thirdly, depending on your requirements and your negotiations with the trainee coach, you may volunteer for just the initial life evaluation and goal setting session(s) or a full transformative programme of 13-15 sessions.

Coaching is likely to be conducted using a VOIP technology like Skype/Zoom, although this can be negotiated with the trainee coach.

How soon will I get a response?

We do not guarantee that you will receive a response if you post on this page. It all depends on our trainees. Other than approving the posts made here, we do not monitor the page.
