Life Coaching

Train for a new career as a life coach with our accredited, online course!

This is a comprehensive 6 module online course for people wishing to work professionally as life coaches. It also explores the skills required to run a successful Life Coach practice, from setting up business to working with clients.

A life coach works with individuals to help them reassess their current lifestyle and make changes, identify life goals, and move towards greater fulfillment at work and in their personal life. Coaches may also work with groups and organisations.

This is a detailed course, with lots of practical activities and loads of techniques and strategies to use in coaching work. By the end of the course I felt well-equipped to begin working with clients, and I still refer to the course notes quite frequently in my day-to-day work.
