In the personal coaching business prospective clients are, in our experience, far more interested in a coach's track record than the type of certificate or 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 life coach can demonstrate that he or she has achieved positive results for other clients. Authenitic testimonials and endorsements are therefore 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. By doing so we ensure our trainees have the very best chance of sustaining successful practices.
With that truth having been expressed, we hold some pretty impressive endorsements and accreditations which we would like you to be aware of:
In May 2014, after a rigorous assessment process, New Insights was awarded formal accreditation by the CPD Standards Office, an international, independent accreditation board based in the UK, that accredits high quality training and learning courses and activities.
New Insights has maintained this sought after accreditation since then and is CPD registered provider number 21078.
CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development and the CPD Standards Office is overseen by an Expert Advisory Board comprising professional experts drawn from academia, employers and professional bodies and works with the support of an increasing number of professional bodies, universities and employers.
This is a prestigious award and bears testament to the comprehensive nature and high quality of the New Insights Life Coach Training and Certification Programme.
CPD accreditation is reviewed every two years.

In May 2016, New Insights joined the International Coaches Register (ICR) and was awarded Accredited Agency status.
ICR certifies professional coaches worldwide and is 100% independent.
ICR Coach Register is ISO 9001:2008 certified, a subsidiary of Global Network Group and supervised by the ICC Council.
New insights is proud to be associated with the ICR, an organisation that we believe stands out amongst international coach representative bodies as dynamic and progressive.
Once certified, New insights trained life coaches are welcome to apply to join the ICR.

The ACCPH is the UK's professional body for counsellors, coaches, psychotherapists and clinical hypnotherapists.
ACCPH's accreditation involves a robust and rigorous quality audit by their inspectors to ensure the minimum quality is met at all times.
In February 2016 New Insights underwent a quality check to ensure that we, and the certification programme we offer, meets specific quality criteria as required by ACCPH.
We were awarded the prestigious 'Level 5 Diploma' Status and received great praise for the breadth and depth of our programme. Our certified coaches are entitled to join the ACCPH as accredited members.
