There is certainly no lack of life coaching courses to choose from these days. We completely understand if you are feeling a little confused!

So we'd like to help by offering some simple, honest advice based on  years of experience in training and supporting many hundreds of life coaches in South Africa, in the UK and around the world.


Life coaching is a wonderfully uplifting and amazingly fulfilling career. However, to sustain a busy professional practice you will, of course, need a steady stream of clients.

In the life coaching industry, new clients are sourced, primarily, from word-of-mouth referrals from satisfied clients.

In other words, the more you are able to deliver great results for your coaching clients, the more successful and sustainable your practice will be.

The New Insights Life Coaching System

Extensive practice coaching forms an important part of the requirements for graduating from the New Insights life coach certification programme.

Practice coaching not only gives you  vital experience of coaching but it helps you build the necessary confidence ahead of starting out in your own professional practice.

We train you fully in both transactional coaching (no structured system) and transformational coaching (using a structured system).

For the purposes of the latter, we've created an amazingly effective 15-session Life Coaching System which you can try out in your practice coaching sessions.

This unique System incorporates specially designed coach, coaching and client notes for each session and comes with with a step-by-step guide  to its use (along with demonstration videos).

Should you choose, once certified, you can license this powerful personal transformation system for use in your professional practice.
