Convenience without Compromise

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 and around the world.

Be the best
Your Success is Our Success

One thing is for sure. Life coaching is a word-of-mouth business!

Either you consistently produce great results for your clients and your practice flourishes ... or your clients are underwhelmed by what you offer and your practice slowly shrivels and dies.

At New Insights we certainly don't want to be associated with mediocrity in coaching. We understand full well that our success is  closely linked with the success of our coaches.

Many years of experience and caring research have gone into our training and we honestly believe our training programme and associated coaching system is  amongst the very best of its kind in the world and offered in a super-convenient home study format.

If you want to be the best life coach you can be and you want   Convenience, Affordability and Flexibility, combined with in-depth Practical Experience, Structure and Support, you need look no further than New Insights and our accredited life coach training and certification programme.

comprehensive skills training

The New Insights skills training modules

We've left nothing out in our quest to prepare you to be the best life coach you can be.

Our seven skills training modules are written in a non academic, easy-to-apply way and are packed with information, tools, techniques, exercises, examples, quotes, hints, tips and thought provoking insights.

In more than 60 chapters  we cover everything ...

... from the fundamentals of life coaching, contracting with clients, understanding the change process, human needs, beliefs, values, rules, responsibility, communication and life purpose ...

... to ending or extending the coaching contract and advice and techniques to propel you towards coaching excellence.
