"the best financial investment
I ever made"

Hi, I'm Liezl Pape from Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape

I want to express my gratitude for the New Insights Life Coach Training Programme.

I know the market is flooded with life coach training courses  but, honestly, few will be able to tick all the boxes like New Insights does. The material is extremely thorough and covers every possible scenario that a new life coach might have to deal with.

New Insights does not offer a short cut to certification like many other institutes. I gained a lot of experience and confidence through the practical requirements which amount to at least 50 hours of one-on-one coaching. I was in awe to witness the change, growth and results in my practice clients.

This programme works! I cannot wait to introduce it to all my future clients.

I must also mention that New Insights include a lot of valuable material focussing on the practical implications of setting up a business. I found it extremely useful seeing that I don't have a business background.

This was without a doubt the best financial investment I ever made.

"opened my eyes to a whole new world of endless possibilities"

Japhta Mokoele

Hi, I'm Japhta Mokoele from Groblersdal, Limpopo

My life was basically stuck, frustrating and full of laying blame or justifying my failures, but training with New Insights opened my eyes to a whole new world of endless possibilities and a new way of successful living.  

New Insights gave me tools to set great and achievable goals and helped me to uproot my limiting beliefs, while adopting great new values, rules and beliefs for my ultimate success. The tools are helping me in real life relationships, business and my work in general.

Thanks to this training, I am able to assist my clients to change the questions they are asking themselves and, most importantly, to assist them to achieve their goals and find their purposes in life.

I am grateful for the opportunity, support and motivation throughout my certification journey.


Hi, I'm Sue McShane from Pinetown, KZN

I found the New Insights course easy to follow when using all the material provided and I received great support the whole way through.

The content and exercises really helped my practice clients feel comfortable that they could take it one step at a time and have the tools they needed to make the transitions necessary and to reach their life goals.

I'm very happy to have this programme to use to fulfill my passion of guiding and supporting people in a way that empowers them to live the life they want.

"THis programme has coached me!"

Hi, I'm Joy Odera from Nairobi  in Kenya.

When I started the New Insights Life Coach Training Programme, I was looking to get the skills and certification to pursue my dream of coaching young adults to pursue their dreams. I do not believe I had put too much thought into it and the work it would require but under the guidance of and his team I have achieved both and much more!

This programme has coached ME and helped me to rediscover my passions and put me on the path to my life’s purpose. I could not think of a better coaching program than the New Insights one. It has a way of becoming ingrained in your daily way of thinking and doing very effortlessly.

It’s become part of my consciousness!

The support is easily accessible and very prompt and I have been made to feel part of this community while studying.

The material is mind-blowing and worth every penny I spent.  The New Insights programme is the best value for money investment you will ever make in yourself.

"What a Journey!"

Hi, we are Lukas and Tammy Loock from the Free State

What a journey! We are so grateful to New Insights and the people who made it possible to do this course. It truly has brought an amazing change to our lives and we know for the first time in a long time we have found purpose and pleasure in what we do.

It has opened up a world of possibilities and adventure. To be able to share and teach what we have learnt is the most fulfilling thing ever.

When you see people get it and their lives change through it, it truly is so satisfactory!

Hi, I'm Molly Zulu from Ulundi in KwaZulu Natal.

Material is written in a clear and easy to understand manner. There are books which change your whole life around completely. Tests are marked promptly and feedback is given clearly; your queries or cry for assistance is attended to in an instant. The sessions are so rich with information and so relevant to the present and future society.

"I had so much fun doing this course"

Barbara Haasbroek

Hi, I'm Barbara Haasbroek from Pretoria

I have had so much fun doing this course, it is the most amazing way to get to know yourself and also help others.

Doing the New Insights course has developed my awareness. I have become more confident and I am able to communicate with people from all walks of life. This course has opened doors for me, mainly because I can now recognize them as open and expect the best before I even step into the new and exciting challenges.

If you have any interest in life coaching I would strongly recommend the New Insights programme.

"I'm so glad I made this decision"

James Lizamore, New Insights trainee life coach

Hi, I'm James Lizamore from Cape Town.

Earlier this year I took the plunge and signed up for the New Insights programme.

I am so glad that I made this decision as I have enjoyed every moment of reading and working through the material. It was very thought provoking and put me into a reflective frame of mind within the first few days. I soon realised that I was not only learning and working on becoming a life coach, but I was being coached through the content and exercises.

I feel – enlightened, excited and raring to go on and become a top life coach. The skills training material, together with the exercises and the “Extraordinary Coach Action Steps”, have, without doubt, given me more than enough grounding to do just that.

“Packed with information of high quality”

Penny Holburn, New Insights certified life coach

Hi, I'm Penny Holburn from Johannesburg.

This was one of the most - if not the most - worthwhile courses I have ever completed. 

The New Insights Life Coach Training Programme is packed with information of a high quality - and even if you decide not to become a coach, the material will change your life.

"The coaching system really works"

Sharon de Beer, New Insights certified life coach

Hi, I'm Sharon de Beer from Hillcrest, KwaZulu Natal

As a certified coach, every time I work with a client I am even more convinced that I have chosen the correct path and also the correct life coaching course. 

The coaching system really works. My clients invariably walk out with a huge smile on the face and a spring in the step.  This builds in me a sense of pride and accomplishment at having empowered my clients and set them on the road to more confident and successful lives. 

Thank you New Insights for having impacted my life in such a positive and inspiring way.

"New Insights is as good as it
claims to be."

Vernon Johannes, New Insights trainee coach

Hi, I'm Vernon Johannes from Cape Town.

I'm writing this as a trainee life coach, 10 months into my training.

When I first came into contact with New Insights Africa I was a bit sceptical because what they were promising sounded too good to be true. I read the testimonials and couldn't help wondering whether people had been asked to say something "nice", rather than encouraged to be honest.

Having progressed as far as I have, I can now attest to the fact that New Insights really is as good as it claims to be. If people are your passion and you want to make a success out of being a life coach, then this is the course for you.

"I have found fulfillment and real work/life balance"

Tobo Thabede, New Insights certified life coach

Hi, I'm Tobo Thabede from Mthatha.

Training with New Insights to become a life coach is the best thing I could ever have done for myself.

I have found fulfillment and real work/life balance, my practice is easy to run, my work is never boring and I get to experience continual personal growth.

What more need I say?

"A very professional training programme"

Arjan Bogaers, New Insights certified life coach

Hi, I'm Arjan Bogaers from McGregor.

I found the decision to undertake a profound career change both risky and somewhat frightening. Coupled with this was the confusion brought on by having to choose from the many coach training courses on offer.

To this day I am very happy that I chose to train with New Insights. The advantages for me were and still are:

  • a Fully designed home-study course: no attendance at lectures or written exams necessary;
  • An affordable course, and well worth the fee (I did make several comparisons);
  • A Rigorous practical requirement through practice clients;
  • Very good co-ordination: the mentor and administration are easily to contact and feed back detailed and prompt;
  • Very effective training, using both coaching-related tuition and a very comprehensive coaching programme;
  • No hidden costs or additional investments;
  • An internationally acknowledged certificate at successful completion;
  • Detailed business advice.

All in all, this is a very professional training programme, offered with personal attention and care.

"The service is wonderful"

Hi, I'm Cornelia Rammuki from Arcadia.

The service from New Insights is wonderful. I have always received a quick response to my questions, concerns and queries. The contents of the study material has changed my perception of life in general. I am really empowered!

"The most exciting time of my life"

Bev Morrison, New Insights certified life coach

Hi, I'm Bev Morrison from Edenvale

I was looking for something that I could start doing that would encompass my passion for people, sharing and personal development.  A friend of mine recommended that I look at becoming a life coach and steered me in the direction of New Insights.  I looked at many courses and this one appealed to me because it was self paced and there was a lot of structure and support.

I have to say that this has been the most exciting time of my life. I qualified in September 2008 and have coached numerous people. The personal growth that has taken place during this journey and the wonder of people sharing their dreams with me has been simply awesome.

Thanks Bill for your encouragement and support and to anyone who wants to become a life coach ... this is the course to do!

You will love every minute of it and you will start the journey of a life time.

"The most comprehensive, structured and professional approach"

Geoff Feldon, New Insights certified life coach

Hi, I'm Geoff Feldon from Durban.

In researching which life coaching company to train with I felt that New Insights provided the most comprehensive, structured and professional approach. I have not been disappointed in any way during the course of my studies and training.

Not only is the material comprehensive and the practical training requirements ensure that you have some good experience before New Insights grants you certification, but their support structure is fantastic and Bill Burridge is always there for you whenever you have a question or need some help.

"I appreciated the practical application of what I learnt"

Amy Kleinhans-Curd, New Insights certified life coach

Hi, I'm Amy Kleynhans-Curd from Randburg

Now that I have completed the skills training theory I feel very confident and empowered. I have enjoyed the learning process throughout the journey. I have learnt so much about myself and have grown and expanded my awareness of how people function and why.

What I really enjoyed is the way in which the New Insights course stretched me and pointed out specific areas in my life that I can improve on in order to live a more fulfilled life. I also appreciated the practical application of what I learnt.

I can personally testify to the amazing results from doing the work! I feel very inspired by the New Insights course and I am ready to be one of the best life coaches in the world.

"Blown away by the content"

Colleen Deyzel-Louw, New Insights trainee life coach

Hi, I'm Colleen Deyzel-Louw from Everton, KwaZulu Natal

I was absolutely blown away by the course content. With every page I turned, every note I made and every diagram I drew, I realised that – after the birth of my three sons – this has been the most significantly positive experience of my life!

"I'm really happy in what I do"

Jacques Gouws, New Insights certified life coach

Hi, I'm Jacques Gouws from Mafikeng.

New Insights not only changed the way I live my life but resulted in me finding my purpose and now – after 53 summers – I can finally say I am really happy in what I do.

The support during and beyond my training period is a testament to a professional business. The advanced training workshop was an experience to be savoured for ever.

Thank you Bill for a wonderful product.

"The programme has taught me to fly!"

Yolande Olhaus, New Insights certified life coach

Hi, I'm Yolande Olhaus from Bassonia in Johannesburg

I searched for many years for a study programme that would complement my line of work and my passion in life ... PEOPLE! I came across New Insights whose programme appealed to me because it allowed me to complete it in my own time frame.

The practical element of the training has been mind boggling and has backed up everything I learned in the manuals. It threw many challenges at me and it made me see myself and my fellow human beings in a different light.

The New Insights programme is comprehensive and exposes the trainee coach to "real-life" coaching situations.

I believe the New Insights coaching program has taught me to fly!

"A wonderful tested platform on which to build a coaching practice"

Piet Bosman, New Insights certified life coach

Hi, I'm Piet Bosman from Kokstad in KwaZulu Natal.

I have been coaching with the New Insights programme since 2008 and am still extremely impressed with the personal touch and dedicated support Bill and his team provide.

The programme also provides a wonderful tested platform on which to build a coaching practice and each time I review it, I learn something new about myself and truly gain new insights worth sharing with others.

"A journey that one needs to take"

Hi, I'm Lizelle van der Walt from Centurion.

I am a trainee life coach but am also in full time employment. Because of this it is really helpful to know that all my questions and inquiries are attended to immediately. I also receive constant reminders and motivational letters from Bill which gives me the energy to continue with each new step in the programme.

I have learned a great deal about myself and others through this programme. The learning topics are written and explained in an easy-to-follow, yet very insightful manner.

This is a journey that one needs to take if you want to understand the meaning of life and living. Once you get to the point of understanding, you can coach others to understand it as well.

"Warm, caring support"

Hi, I'm Ursula Strydom from Durbanville.

If you are looking for Life Coaching training that is thorough, practical and professionally presented, look no further. New Insights excels at delivering warm, caring support combined with professional training material and a host of online resources to help you become a very successful Life Coach.

I did a lot of research before deciding on New Insights and I can honestly say that the support and encouragement I received kept me motivated and focused. When I stumbled along the way, Bill was there to gently nudge me in the right direction.

I remain forever grateful for the support and exceptional service even after completing my certification.
