Internationally accredited LIFE COACH TRAINING

New Insights is proud to offer a locally and internationally accredited life coach training programme.

Read more about our accreditations and endorsements below.


In our experience stretching over more than 20 years, prospective clients in the personal coaching business are far more interested in a coach's track record than the type of certificate or accreditation that the coach may hold, even though these may act as a feel good factor for the coach.

A client's decision to hire a life coach is primarily influenced by whether the coach can demonstrate having achieved positive results for other clients. Authenitic testimonials and endorsements are the primary driver of business in this industry.

For this reason, New Insights training prioritises the ability to consistently deliver really great results for clients. This ensures our trainees of the very best chance of sustaining successful practices.

With that truth having been expressed, our internationally accredited life coach training has garnered some pretty impressive endorsements that we would like to share with you:
