volunteer for free life coaching


If you would like to take advantage of this free life coaching offer, we respectfully ask that you read the information and guidelines provided on this page BEFORE you go ahead and post!


New Insights trainee life coaches are required to conduct extensive practice coaching as part of the requirements for their eventual certification. 

Trainees are expected to find several volunteers to practice with. To assist them, we have created this page. It aims to  help connect them with members of the public who feel they may benefit from volunteering to be coached for one or more sessions.


Woman questioning

Life coaches work with mentally well people to help them tap into their inner power, achieve their goals and dreams and lead more purposeful, meaningful and fulfilling lives.

Life coaches are NOT counsellors, therapists, mentors, or advisors, and do not receive training to act in those capacities.

If you are unsure as to whether life coaching is right for you, please first visit our page, What is life coaching. There you will find comparisons between life coaching and counselling/psychotherapy, life coaching and mentoring, etc.


Tick and Cross

To post or comment on this page, you need to be either:

  • a potential volunteer CLIENT (a member of the public who would like to receive free life coaching; or
  • a bona fide New Insights TRAINEE life coach (must be currently registered and in good standing with New Insights)

If neither of the above apply, your post will not be approved and published.



Generally speaking our trainee life coaches will not charge for practice coaching sessions. However, depending on the circumstances, some may request a nominal fee to cover any costs they may incur. 

IF I volunteer for coaching, what can i expect?

new skills training sign

Firstly, it's important to bear in mind that you will be working with a trainee life coach

Trainees are neither qualified, nor experienced coaches. If you want or need an experienced and certified coach, or if you are considering training with us and want to experience a session, we recommend that you visit our Directory of Life Coaches.

Secondly, coaching will be conducted in the trainee's personal capacity. Although the trainee coach may use the New Insights Life Coaching System, New Insights is not in any way responsible for the nature and quality of coaching you will receive.

Thirdly, depending on your requirements and the availability of the trainee coach, you may choose to volunteer for free life coaching in the form of:

  • Two initial sessions covering life evaluation and goal setting; or 
  • A full transformative programme of 15 structured sessions; or
  • A single, less structured, free-form session.

Life coaching will, almost certainly, be conducted remotely, using Zoom or Skype or similar, although the face-to-face option can be negotiated with the trainee coach in the event that you happen to live close by.


We cannot guarantee that you will receive a response if you post on this page. Neither can we  give you any guidelines about how long you will have to wait. Other than approving posts, we do not monitor or manage the interactions between our trainees and members of the public on this page.

From time to time we clean up posts on this page by deleting public posts that are older than 12 months, or posts by trainees who have already qualified as certified life coaches.
