New Insights has been operating in the UK and internationally since 2003.

In 2007 we established New Insights Africa operating out of South Africa.

We specialise in life coach certification training. Our entire focus and dedication is on providing the best possible training to people who are serious about becoming successful, practising  life coaches.

Our many years of experience have taught us, repeatedly, that:

The key thing that distinguishes successful life coaches from the rest, is this ...


Think about it.

Restaurants that consistently deliver a great experience for their diners will flourish, thanks to  word-of-mouth endorsements. Those that don't, will eventually be forced to close their doors.

Life coaching is no different.

Word-of-mouth endorsements are the primary driver of business. If you consistently deliver great experiences and, more importantly, help your clients achieve great results, you will definitely flourish.

The New Insights Life Coach Certification Training Programme has been lovingly designed and developed with exactly this principle in mind.

We assure your success as a life coach by exposing you to all of the concepts, tools, techniques and skills that are vital in ensuring you are able to delight each and every one of your coaching clients!

Here's an overview of the Programme. Once you've checked it out, scroll down below for a lot more detail, if you are interested ...
