People with a Passion for People ...

people who are passionate about people

At New Insights we like to say that we live, eat and breathe life coaching!

Seriously though, our whole business revolves around training people to become quality life coaches ... coaches who will help us deliver on our mission to bring greater Freedom, Confidence and Growth to people from all walks of life.

Life coach training is not an add-on service, or one of many types of training we offer. It is our sole business and one we are both passionate about and dedicated to!

Life coach training that's unique ...

unique life coach training

We designed the New Insights Life Coach Training and Certification Programme based on extensive research.

It taught us that most people  transition into life coaching from very busy careers or lives (such as as stay-at-home parents for example).

It also taught us that convenience and flexibility of the training is  paramount ... but that we dare not compromise on quality

Our training needed to be comprehensive, rigorous, internationally credible, practical, well supported and yet affordable.

That provided the blueprint for our unique home study certification Programme!


real life couple

We have the greatest respect for academia. 

But, let's face it, life coaching is all about working with down-to-earth people, helping them live to their strengths, achieve their goals and dreams and connect with their purposes in life.

We recognised that for our life coach training to be truly effective, the theory had to be written in a non-academic way and had to be replete with examples, exercises, quotes and other real life insights.

In addition, we needed to build in a substantial practice coaching element to create an effective and inspiring learning experience that blends theoretical study and practical work.

Its perhaps telling that we choose to refer to those enrolled in our Programme as Trainee Life Coaches, not 'students' – a small but important example of what makes New Insights different from the rest!


New Insights Life Coaching System

Some training institutes believe their job is done once they've imparted the theory and a bit of classroom practice.

At New Insights we go well beyond that. Our life coach training programme includes access to the New Insights Life Coaching System. 

This transformational coaching system comprises 15 sessions that span everything from a session on life appraisal to an emotive session on finding life purpose. An extensive set of beautifully designed coaching and client notes is made available for practice coaching purposes and can, optionally, be licensed for professional use by certified coaches.

Our life coach training also includes exposure to 'free-form' coaching, using one of the many generic models that exist in the market, thus giving our trained coaches the flexibility to offer their clients a structured transformational coaching programme or needs based transactional coaching.


customer support that's caring and responsive

At New Insights, we want nothing more than to see our trainees become successful certified life coaches

Not only is this important in achieving our mission but, quite frankly, our reputation hinges on how effective our training is perceived to be. At the end of the day, the clients of the coaches we train will be the judge of that. :-) 

We make it our business to be on hand to answer questions and give advice whenever our trainees need it.

Apart from attentive support that's always on tap via  email and/or telephone, we provide our trainee coaches and coaches with access to excellent online support facilities, including our online Forum.


New Insights business support manuals

Providing quality life coach training is one thing.

But to be a successful life coach you have to know how to plan, establish, market, sustain and expand your own life coaching practice. 

Our Certification Programme goes beyond life coach training. It includes a wealth of material, drawn from many years of experience, to help our coaches do just that.

We don't wave good bye to you once you've completed the training. We offer you a special place in our hearts for the long term because we know that ...
