"I appreciate the structure and the wealth of wisdom thIS programme and coaching system offers."

Katia Kerekesova

Hi, I'm Katia Kerekesova from Haarlem in the Netherlands.

When I made the decision to start a journey to become a Life Coach, I was overwhelmed with the multitude of training options.

Quite serendipitously, I came across another New Insights certified coach who told me about the programme and I was sold! I decided to be coached by her, while I was doing the programme, which was the best decision. I recommend this approach to everyone. It really helps having a coach holding you accountable and explaining each session more thoroughly as you go through the training programme.

I have learned so much! I appreciate the structure and the wealth of wisdom the New Insights programme and coaching system offers. I think it's especially nice for someone who has just started on this path.

The feedback I get from my clients is very positive, they enjoy the journey of self-discovery and the transformations that occur as a result of coaching with this System are mind-blowing!

Denise Webb

Hi, I'm Denise Webb from Rossendale in Lancashire.

I searched and investigated for quite some time to find the right training company. None of the courses that I found quite sat right with me until New Insights was recommended to me by a friend of a friend. As soon as I visited their website the whole ethos of the company resonated with me. 

The training has been in great depth. The training materials I received have been amazing. Written so clearly, in detail and in a way that was easy to understand. I started on the first of the seven modules and found it so interesting and exciting that I couldn't wait to move onto the next and that followed on all the way through. It has been very cleverly written and as I progressed, I soon discovered how all the modules interlinked and made more and more sense.  

The support of the New Insights team has been there throughout the training. Lots of contact from Bill Burridge, the Managing Director, encouraging and reminding me of so many different things, along with his regular blogs which have been interesting and inspiring.Anything I undertake has to be of a high standard especially with life coaching as I believe my clients deserve the best. I feel New Insights have given me the best.

Through lots of introspection, I have learnt so much more about myself and the needs of others. I am very excited to start using the new skills and techniques that I have learnt, enabling me to start helping and supporting as many people as I will have the privilege to meet. I will work with them to be the best that they can be and live the life that they desire. I am so grateful and thankful to have found the New Insights programme.

With hindsight I would like to have entered into this work twenty years ago. However, what I have learnt is that it has been so rewarding and confidence building to stretch myself and that it is never too late to learn new things and follow your dreams.

I highly recommend this very professional and supportive company along with their amazing resources to anyone considering a new career in life coaching.

"Ultimately, I'm very pleased with my NEW INSIGHTS certification experience"

Hi, I'm Lindsey Gordon from Bristol.

My favourite things about the NI certification included: 1) the ability to train long distance and 2) the practice hours required to certify. 

Despite the distance learning format I still felt very supported and queries and feedback were always responded to quickly. As I was working and living in Singapore at the time, I was very grateful for this certification opportunity.

Even though the number of practice coaching hours seems daunting at first, I personally found this the most effective training method. Ultimately, the more coaching I did, the more confident I became and having the confidence in your abilities is SO important when you first qualify. It's so much more powerful than what you can learn in a book. Also, I think the longer training period (up to 2 years) also instils confidence in yourself over qualifying in e.g. an intense weekend course.

Saying that, the workbooks and study material was also very beneficial. I'm still referring back to it now and I think always will as it provides such clarity and inspiration for successful coaching methods. The methods and advice are always translated into easy, digestible and applicable language that you can identify and then also apply in your own coaching. It's not too academic.

Ultimately, I'm very pleased with my New Insights certification experience. I feel confident as a life coach going into practice by myself and I'm reassured by NI being a accredited trainer and also recognised by the ICR.

Hi, I'm Lindsey Shuttleworth from Bradford, West Yorkshire.

I started the New Insights Life Coach Training Programme simply for my own personal development. In the back of my mind, I thought, “perhaps I could become a life coach one day,” but at the time I was definitely doing it for myself.

Fast forward two years and I now feel confident, passionate and sure that I have the skills, knowledge and experience to be a great life coach. I feel excited to assist people in being the best version of themselves, and living the life that they dream of.

This programme has been rigorous and challenging, with the combination of theory and practical elements learnt. I am particularly thankful to New Insights for pushing its trainees to complete more than 50 hours of practice coaching, as it is this part of the course where you truly learn the art of coaching. 

I have always felt supported throughout the entire process. Continuous feedback was offered via email, the Forum, phone calls if needed - I have never felt alone on this journey. 

On a personal note, this programme has guided me in finding my passion and purpose. It has prepared me to go out into the world and share it. It is for this reason that I am most grateful to New Insights.

"A game changer for me!"

Peter Walter

Hi, I'm Peter Walter from Letchworth, Herts.


Doing my coach certification training through New Insights has been a game changer for me.

The content covered is worth its weight in gold. The theory, mixed in with the practical examples and the practical activities to accompany the course cannot be beaten.

Moreover – and I say this with great pride – it was an awesome challenge. I believe that coaching and empowering others is one of the most important jobs in the world, so it is not one to be taken lightly. The programme prepares you for the triumphs and the challenges (growth opportunities) that coaching will bring.

This is not some lets-pay-someone-some-money-to-get-a-certificate-in-a-weekend course. No! It’s a fully equipped vehicle to take you to a new level of growth, which is required for the enriching job that is coaching. But trust me, the time put in is SO worth it. To date it is the best time investment I’ve ever made.

"I have seen the most amazing joy and excitement in my clients"

Kendall Hamilton

Hi, I'm Kendall Hamilton from Delft in The Netherlands

This certainly was quite a ride!

I didn’t realise how little I knew and at the same time how much I knew. I was surprised that there were theories and principles to explain things that I knew intuitively to be true.

That was reassuring and very useful in helping me explain it to others so that they may know too. I think this course should be mandatory at school. So that as we venture out on life’s path, we can stick more closely to what we know to be our true selves or if we choose another path that we have the tools to return to our true selves when we are ready.

The personal development exercises in this course are so powerful they quickly bring you back to the truth. I was shocked by the speed with which they worked for some of my clients. I saw the most amazing joy and excitement in my clients as they began to believe they can make the changes needed to lead a happy, fulfilling life.

I feel I have enough grounding from the New Insights course, specialist knowledge from a number of obesity and weight management courses and personal experience to become a great weight loss coach. The New Insights course has been particularly wide ranging and far reaching, from psychological theory to the skills required to run a successful and professional practice. 

I feel capable and ready to run my own business.

Hi, I'm Samantha Terry from Greater London (I've chosen not to include a pic with my testimonial)

I write this as a New Insights certified life coach and I am absolutely thrilled to be saying that!!

This course has been more than I expected. I remember scrolling the internet through the vast amounts of life coach trainings and feeling overwhelmed when choosing which course felt most aligned.

I am a very spiritual person myself and so I let my intuition guide me, and I had a really good feeling about this course. At first I wasn't sure the promotional marketing spoke to me, yet, I was still getting a good feeling! So I took the plunge and never looked back!

This course is extremely well put together and easy to follow and digest. The content you receive is just exceptional. I love having the manuals in hard copy format and frequently revisit them to brush up on certain topics. They are a fantastic resource.

The support you get in building your practice from the business manuals is also MAGIC.

I always say go with your gut, but I mean it when i say that this is an incredible course and I know if you want to be a certified life coach then this truly does have everything you could need!

"looking forward to my new career"

Karen Meynink

Hi, I'm Karen Meynink from Wallingford in Oxfordshire.

After I was made redundant after 25+ years of corporate life a few years ago, I grasped the opportunity to find out more about life coaching and pursue a new direction that I had been considering for a while.

I chose New Insights for three key reasons - the structure of the programme, the practical experience needed as part of the certification and the accreditations New Insights has.

Along the way, I discovered my life’s purpose! I love coaching!

Now I am certified, I am looking forward to my new career, empowering people to find their way to live their lives to the fullest.

Thank you New Insights!

"impressed with the professionalism"

Jackie Beasley

Hi there, I'm Jackie Beasley from Biggleswade in Bedfordshire.

I spent some time deciding on which life coaching course I wanted to undertake and I'm glad I decided to go with New Insights.

It has far surpassed all my expectations. It wasn't too expensive (compared to other courses), I loved the home study element, and I never felt like I was being pushed into paying for the course - unlike some other life coaching courses I could mention!

Since then, I have found the course material to be excellent and overall I've been so impressed with the professionalism of New Insights who respond promptly to all queries, and provide good commentary ('new insights' if you will) on your coursework. 

I know I chose well and have thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the training. I will be using everything I have learnt to help take my career forward. 

If people are your passion and you want to be a life coach, this is definitely the course for you.

"stretched way beyond my expectations"

Jan Binder

Hello, I'm Jan Kristiansen Binder from Greater London.

At the age of 47 it seemed somewhat daunting and unsettling taking a decision to move on from 25+ years of corporate management to become a life coach.

However, in choosing to train with and become certified by New Insights Life Coach Training, I only briefly look back, and then only with pride on how far I've come. My vision is now firmly focused on my life purpose, which I found on this journey to becoming a New Insights certified  life coach.

The New Insights Life Coach Training Programme stretched way beyond my expectations and well beyond any other life coach training programme I researched. The quality, structure and support are unmatched.

I don't say it lightly that I will forever be grateful for the transformational discovery and personal development that New Insights has enabled me to achieve. I am now equipped with knowledge, skills and confidence to live my own best life and look forward to serving and helping many many others to do the same.

"Already got six paying clients"

Marion Macleod

Hi, I'm Marion Macleod from the Isle of Lewis in Scotland.

Yesterday I received my certificate in the mail - Wow - I'm overwhelmed with gratitude and  a feeling of achievement!

I can't thank New Insights enough. The content was incredible, the course flowed in a way that grew me to a new place of confidence and ownership in my world. 

I've already got my first six paying clients now and this is just the beginning!

"challenging yet supportive"

Patrick Tarpey

Hello, I'm Patrick Tarpey from Wolverhampton in the West Midlands.

The New Insights programme was challenging and yet at the same time supportive.

I have learnt first hand the effect that the power of coaching can have, not just in my own life but also in the positive impact it has had with the people I work with.

I really believe my ability and confidence to deliver outstanding coaching sessions derives from undertaking the New Insights course.

Would I recommend New Insights to a friend?

Yes! If you are ready and willing to make changes in your life, then this will help you get what you want.

"i've been through the biggest PERSONAL transformation..."

Kate Walmsley

Hi, I'm Kate Walmsley from Winchester, Hampshire.

The knowledge, training and experience I  gained whilst undertaking the New Insights Life Coach Training is absolutely immense!

I've been through the biggest personal transformation in the last 18 months as a result of this training and can honestly say I now feel far calmer, more inspired, confident and able to make decisions with a sense of clarity and purpose on a daily basis.

Learning the mindset tools within the New Insights programme has been absolutely invaluable to me and I can't wait to take others through this thought provoking and life enhancing process! 

To the New Insights team ... I can't thank you enough.

"One of the most worthwhile investments I have made"

Flora McEwen Brooks

Hi, I'm Flora McEwen Brooks from Seaford in East Sussex.

I have recently completed the New Insights Life Coach Training Programme and can safely say it is one of the most worthwhile investments I have made.  It is an intensive and highly effective course that takes one through the fundamentals of life coaching from the basics to a sophisticated understanding of what great coaches do and how to develop the skills required.

The programme is elegantly structured, providing a template that the aspiring coach can use to promote their own learning as well as their prospective clients'.

With the programme material at hand, along with the online resources and community, I have been able to work at my own pace from home, and now have a comprehensive understanding of the many different skills required to be an effective and successful coach.

It has been a wonderful journey and I feel very grateful for the first class instruction, support and encouragement I have received from the New Insights team along the way!

"My outlook on life has already changed significantly"

Matt Stolworthy

Hi, I’m Matt Stolworthy from Norwich in Norfolk.

Now that I have completed the skills training theory I feel great – my outlook on life has already changed significantly. I feel more confident and inspired to develop myself – this is something that people who know me have commented on. I have felt the changes almost day by day. It’s been so enlightening and fantastic.

I am more aware of my thoughts, experiences and communication with other people. I now find that I am starting to ‘laugh-off’ things that would normally have irritated me and I have felt less stressed.

I am working towards some of my goals and really cannot wait to start helping other people improve their lives as well.

"I have felt totally supported the whole way through the programme"

Bev Morrisson

Hi, I’m Bev Morrisson from Morecambe in Lancashire.

I can honestly say that I have thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the New Insights comprehensive training programme.

The knowledge and learnings imparted in the skills training manuals and accompanying videos have been absolutely superb and of the highest quality. I have felt totally supported in my efforts the whole way through the programme and the regular feedback I have received has been extremely constructive, encouraging and inspirational.

I feel I have grown tremendously during the last ten months and that in choosing New Insights, I definitely made the right choice. The opportunity to undertake the practical elements of the course working with the clients is such a rewarding and fulfilling experience and some of the comments and feedback has been amazing.

I can now go forth confidently in the knowledge that I have the skills and attributes required of me to be the best coach I can be and to help others to create their best lives.

"As a coach I feel far more prepared to get out there and help people ..."

Caroline Ablitt

Hi, I’m Caroline Ablitt from Skipton, North Yorkshire

New insights has been an incredible company to train under. The support and understanding from Bill and his team has been immense.

I looked into other life coaching programs and New Insights has really put together an incredibly good and clear program which goes into a lot of depth, allowing one a much greater understanding and clarity of the process step by step.

As a coach I feel far more prepared to get out there and help people take control of their lives and their futures positively.
I look forward to an ongoing and supportive relationship with New Insights life coaching. Thank you again for this wonderful opportunity that will allow me to follow my life purpose.

"In the space of six months my two practice clients totally turned
their lives around"

Marie Spencer-Rowland

Hi, I’m Marie Spencer-Rowland from London

What a ride!

The New Insights programme is incredibly in-depth.  What you learn about yourself, as well as the people that you work with on a coaching level, is mind-blowing.  Who knew people had 'rules'!

I have completed 4 day coaching seminars and courses in which, after those 4 days, you leave being told "you are now a coach" but the truth is, I honestly don't know how I could have coached them in such a way as to get the results that my clients got with this programme.  I think even they were surprised! In the space of six months my two practice clients totally turned their lives around. It blows me away how effective this programme is.

There is still so much that I want to learn and I will continue to study coaching further but I will always, always, always recommend a new coach starts with the New Insights Programme.

"so much more than i had imagined!"

Hi, I'm Karen Greaves from Banchory in Scotland.

When I signed up with the New Insights Life Coach Training Programme, I was a disillusioned social worker looking to specialise in life coaching.

My decision to go with New Insights was strongly influenced by the course content, structured coaching program, strong support system and its accreditation by the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Standards Office, etc. However, the life coach training I experienced was exceptional; and so much more than I had imagined because you are not only taught how to become a great life coach, but also to truly live what you practice!

As a result, becoming a New Insights certified life coach has been one of the most fundamentally life changing decisions I have ever made, both professionally and personally. It has made an enormous difference in my life, my relationships and my beliefs about what I can achieve. I have learned to value myself, my work and what I contribute to others; to identify and tackle my limiting beliefs, and to recognise and address patterns of behaviour which end up sabotaging my forward momentum and development.

I have  overcome some major life challenges, grown, developed, achieved, and become more than I ever thought possible, and this is just the beginning! Thank you, New Insights.

“Just Do It!”

Sharon Jenkins

Hi, I'm Sharon Jenkins, an international life coach based near Manchester

If you are thinking of becoming a life coach, THIS is the programme that will give you the necessary step-by-step know how. Literally anyone with a passionate desire to help people can follow the simple system and get the freedom to work whenever and wherever they want.

As my own life coach says, ‘Nike’ – Just do it!

"The course has been enlightening and incredible as far as personal development goes"

Carole Kay

Hi, I’m Carole Kay from Muscat in Oman.

As a brand new certified coach I would like to say how much I enjoyed the course.

At the time of enrolling for the course I had every intention of  following through to be a life coach. At this point I now feel that that is unlikely. However, the course has been enlightening and incredible as far as personal development goes. My understanding of how the mind works and what makes people  do what they do has been life changing.

The knowledge I have gained from studying the materials and working with some amazing people has been refreshing and it put me on quite a steep learning curve. This new found knowledge has been informative and  educationally sound and I really enjoyed the experience.

"The thing that has touched me the most ..."

Omozua Isiramen

Hi, I'm Omozua Isiramen from Luxembourg.

Becoming aware of how we humans sabotage our growth subconsciously, the power of awareness and making intentional choices in order to live a prosperous life on many levels is definitely the thing that has touched me the most about this Programme.

"You will truly feel alive!"

Matthew Marinus

Hi, I'm Matthew Marinus from Johannesburg.

I was in my element reading the New Insights training manuals. Every page is so useful that I found myself saying "Sheesh, I'm gonna read this slowly cause I don't wanna miss a thing here!"

If you truly have a passion for listening to and helping people then you will feel alive throughout the New Insights course.

I have benefited from going to my own New Insights Coach, training as a New Insights Coach as well as helping other people live their dreams through the New Insights Method! I am grateful that I stumbled across their website - it really has changed my life in a very substantial and tangible way!

"The results were amazingly life changing"

Chana Yawitz

Hi, I’m Chana Yawitz from Jerusalem in Israel.

I am so grateful that I've found New Insights.  After our family's tragedy, I started searching for my life purpose.  

As I have always been passionate about helping other people, I thought about becoming a coach, but people told me that coaching is boring and true client results are scarce.

Then I discovered New Insights.

This is not just a coaching program, it's a LIFE coaching program. The material is so clear, comprehensive, and flowing.  There's no chance of  boredom or goofing off! My practice clients were always anxiously awaiting the next session, and together we experienced the joy in their success at every milestone.

The results were amazingly LIFE-changing ! Not only did my clients become more empowered and passionate, but I, too,  gained a great awareness of my own issues in my own life! I am so grateful that I am able to help others live a happier, more fulfilling life.

Thank you, New Insights, for a dream come true!

"I really enjoyed the course"

Ben Calitz

Hi, I’m Ben Calitz from Windhoek in Namibia

I really enjoyed the course. One learns so much about oneself when you help other people formulating and realising their goals.

Despite the fact that life coaching is relatively unknown in Namibia, my practice clients were very pleased with the results they have achieved.

I can really recommend New Insights. Their support and understanding helped me a lot. I use some of the techniques and exercises on a daily basis in my classes.

Thanks Bill and the New Insights team.

"I strongly recommend the New Insights course"

[Pic not supplied]

Hi, I’m Eve Waltner from Antwerp in Belgium

Having obtained my certification is the outcome of a most fulfilling study period. When I signed up for New Insights, I didn't know how many new horizons would open up for me.

The programme is very well structured, the contents very enriching and thought provoking, the self-tests resuming the important messages to be remembered. The constant support and encouragement I received all along were amazing: Bill has always been there for me, giving immediate answers and help whenever needed.

I strongly recommend the New Insights course.

"Not only do you say something but you carry it out!"

[Pic not supplied]

(From Craig Glenn who, for personal reasons, took up the option to return his programme within the 30 day guarantee period for a full refund.)

Thank you. I am amazed at the level of professionalism I have experienced dealing with New Insights. Not only do you say something but indeed carry it out, a quality that one doesn’t find often these days.

May God bless you, your family and your company….
