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.
Yes, as long as you are either:
If neither of the above apply to you we will not approve your post.
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.
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.
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.
