v5 Upgrade Course

We'll start by answering the most obvious questions that you are likely to have about upgrading to v5. 

If, as we hope, you decide to go ahead and upgrade, scroll to the bottom for details on how to enrol in the upgrade course.



Version 5 represents a substantial leap forward from previous versions.

Many changes have been incorporated but we have taken care to retain all the core concepts, principles and overall philosophy that sets New Insights training apart.

  • We have introduced I-N-S-I-G-H-T-S, a proprietary coaching model that provides a logical foundation and the relevant context for our training and Life Coaching System.
  • We have restructured the Skills Training modules. Topics have been re-ordered and re-grouped to complement the I-N-S-I-G-H-T-S model and improve the flow. More new information, explanations, visuals, exercises and examples has been added.
  • All seven Skills Training modules are now also available as audio files in mp3 format.
  • The Life Coaching System has been extended and now comprises 15 sessions as opposed to 13. It, too, has been restructured to complement the I-N-S-I-G-H-T-S model and improve the overall flow. 
  • The Session Notes have been completely redesigned and updated. They are now electronically fillable making conducting remote coaching sessions easier and more convenient.
  • A new Coaching Session Guide has been introduced, with a detailed session-by-session walk through of the New Insights Life Coaching System. Guidance is also provided on how to run free-form or 'transactional' coaching, using a generic coaching model.
  • To protect the integrity of the New Insights Life Coaching System we have introduced the concept of a Licensed Practitioner Coach (more about this below).

Why should I upgrade?

Upgrading to version 5 is a must if:

  • You value the New Insights approach to life coaching and want to be brought bang up to date with the changes to the material and the various concepts, tools, techniques and skills we offer.
  • You want permanent access to the latest Skills Training modules.
  • You like the idea of a short refresher course that will reinforce and expand on your training and enhance your coaching skills.

  • You wish to join an exclusive group of New Insights Licensed Practitioner Coaches and enjoy the many benefits that come with this.

Why the need for a bridging course?

It would make little sense for us to charge you a fee to upgrade, send you the latest material and then leave you to your own devices in trying to figure out everything that has changed and how to apply these changes in your coaching.

We want you to feel confident that you understand, and can apply all the changes to best effect in your coaching. 

And we want to know that when you coach using the updated New Insights Life Coaching System that you are properly equipped to do it full justice.

What does the bridging course involve?

This online course, conveniently accessible via the New Insights Online e-learning platform, is designed to:

  • Walk you through all of the most important changes involved in the upgrade to version 5 of our training, our Life Coaching System and our revised Code of Ethics. This is done through five short presentation style videos and tested by means of a simple sixty minute multiple choice exam (which you can take up to three times) requiring a 70% mark to pass.
  • Familiarise you with the new Life Coaching System and test your ability to use it  through one full programme of practice coaching (sessions 1-15) with one client who is required to submit three online feedback forms (covering the initial, mid-programme and end-programme sessions).
  • Familiarise you with the free-form coaching and test your ability through one practice coaching session with one client who is required to submit a single online feedback form.

The videos that walk you through the changes total about 50 minutes so it won't take you long to view these and cross reference to the Skills Training  material and Life Coaching System. 

Assuming you take a further 15 weeks to complete the practicals (conducting one session a week), you should easily be able to complete the course within 6 months

The maximum time that we allow you to complete all aspects of the course (including practicals) after you  enrol, is a very  generous 12 months.

What is a ‘Licensed Practitioner Coach’?

Licensed Practitioner Coach

With the advent of version 5, we have introduced a license agreement which sets out the terms of use of the New Insights Life Coaching System in professional coaching by certified life coaches

This is aimed at preventing unauthorised use of the System and protecting its integrity.

The license covers the full calendar year and currently costs £240 (charged pro rata for the number of months remaining). This fee can be paid annually upfront, or monthly by recurring payment, charged to your debit/credit card by PayPalTM.

Licensed Practitioner Coaches qualify to display an augmented coach identifier (see the sample above) and get full access to the Life Coaching System and Session Notes without the watermark restriction that is applied to the notes used in practice coaching.

Licensed Practitioner Coaches may list their profiles on our exclusive Directory of Life Coaches  at no additional cost.
