Become a Life Coach with the Life Coaching Academy

Providing others with the skills and the necessary training to enable positive change.

We first opened our doors back in 2001 when we identified the need for a life coaching institute which offered an online network of training and support for those in the industry. This drive enabled us to establish the Life Coaching Academy and offer anyone in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane or Perth seeking to become a life coach with the highest quality services and qualifications to allow them to do their work to the best of their ability.

We pride ourselves on our ability to help guide and shape future coaches to be able to offer a truly valuable service online in regards to personal development and enacting positive behaviour change. Offering a range of qualifications and opportunities for advancement, our academy has worked hard to become the leading resource for life coaches throughout Australia including Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.

Do you have what it takes to become a coach?

Becoming a coach is an immensely rewarding experience which helps broaden your own outlook on life as well as positively influencing those around you. If you have the drive to help others improve their quality of life by serving as an inspirational, supportive and positive presence in their life, then our institute is for you.

As well as offering the means for our students to gain a Diploma of Coaching, we also aim to serve as an online portal for those looking for a coach in their area. Our extensive network of graduated and in-training coaches puts us in a unique position to pair you with highly trained individuals who are best suited to your specific requirements. This serves as a mutually beneficial relationship, as it allows us to support our coaches, even after graduating, and it allows us to provide a valuable service to those looking for a reliable coaching professional.

Our courses

We offer a number of different online programs at our institute to help our students become a coach. Depending on the areas they wish to specialise in, these online courses can be tailored to suit their specific requirements. Areas can be as varied as business management, to health and wellness coaching, and offer customised learning programs to equip you with the necessary learning tools. Other academy’s courses involve a more in-depth approach, such as our Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) courses, which help to ‘re-program’ an individual to encourage positive behavioural change.
