Our Academy Coaches

Our coaches go on to establish full or part time practices or they take the skills back into the workplace. Some of our life coaches operate solely in the private sector, or as business coaches in the business world, others work in both.

We pride ourselves in the fact that out life coaches are sought after people! We regularly receive enquiries from prospective clients, who may be private individuals seeking personal coaching or multi-national companies looking for a life coach consultancy within their organizations. All of these leads are passed onto our coaches via our Head Office and our life coaching network located across the country, including Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and the rest of Australia.

The selection process for trainees is rigorous but fair. An optional part of the training is delivered at Coaching Mastery weekend intensives with the emphasis on practical workshop experiences which are supplemented with distance learning modules.

As practicing coaches they bring current experience to the application of theoretical knowledge and skills training. The final graduation examination is acknowledged as a hallmark qualification.

Ongoing support beyond our online courses


But training is only the start. Our life coaching courses ensure, through an ongoing relationship with coaches, that you are always kept up to date as the profession evolves. This contact is maintained through conference calls, special events with leading international coaches as featured speakers, the Academy’s own student portal and website and, as you might expect, access to their own life coaches.

Many graduates are already enjoying the freedom and pleasure of running their own home-based coaching practices. Others are following a fast track career course with major employers who invite them to take their coaching skills back to the workplace to be shared with their colleagues.
