What Is Life Coaching?

Life Coaching is now the fastest growing field of personal development in the world...

Have you ever felt ‘stuck’ or confused about what you should do?

Have you ever wanted to achieve a new level of success in an area of your life that is already working for you?

Professional life coaching is about assisting a client in closing the gap between where they are and where they want to be. It’s about working with someone who wants to achieve more in their life. An effective coach will assist their client in discovering what is important to them, what is missing from their life or their business and what outcomes they are looking for. They will then ask questions, listen, and reflect back what they hear, challenging their client’s thinking in such a way that the client will consider new ways of creating the transformation they are seeking.

Through working with a professional life coach, clients achieve the outcomes they are looking for faster and more effortlessly. Coaching clients report greater levels of confidence, self esteem, passion for life, enhanced relationships and a far more focused approach to their life and to their business.

Who Becomes A Life Coach?

The person who becomes a coach wants to achieve more in their lives, and is interested in personal development. They are happy for people to experience success and are considered great listeners. There is no particular background or experience that provides an advantage. Successful life coaches are eager to learn, are committed to helping people and enjoy a lifestyle of their choosing.

How Soon Can I Be Coaching?

What Do Your Accreditations Mean To Me?

Accreditation is one of the few ways of assessing competence in an unregulated industry. Until the government limits who can call themselves life coaches, this is the best way to ensure you have the level of training and expertise you require.

It was great to serve these special people and be a part of their experience. It comes back to you multiplied. Also the fact that we depend on The Coaching Institute to be there for us... we might as well return the favour. The wicked thing is that it gives you a behind-the-scenes taste, so that we know what is involved in time, effort and co-ordination to make the whole thing happen.

I attended my FOCS weekend end of May this year and I was so inspired and eager to get into my journey as a coach. I wanted to get as much information into my head and heart that I could possibly get from Joe. I loved everything Joe shared, his stories, his teachings, his wisdom and advice.

My coaching journey – for that is indeed what this is, a journey fought with perils, pitfalls, love, lessons learnt in every sense of the word – actually started 5 years ago when I was looking, perhaps like many of us, for a career change.

I’m passionate about what coaching can do but I communicate my WHY first. Coaching is just one way of delivering my why. It makes for more interesting conversations, that’s for sure! When you talk passionately about your “why”, it’s guaranteed to light you up and that sets you apart from the crowd who talk about what they “do” - and that's when the magic happens.

Life coaching never seemed to me like a legitimate career. I always liked the idea but didn’t think it was a way to make decent money. Even though I knew life coaches help people and provide amazing service, I couldn’t see how I could make a living from it. Until I stumbled across TCI.

Feeling a little disillusioned with events going on in my life, it was time to change. TCI had been recommended to me as being one of the best Coaching Schools in Australia. Apparently a great place to learn & it was time for me to get serious about ‘what’s next’ in my life. I contacted the Institute & it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

My coaching journey began just two and a half months ago with my intake weekend at the end of March 2013. I’d been thinking about a coaching career for over a year before I took that first step, but with just having had my second baby, I wanted to time it right. As soon as the little one was weaned, I knew it was the right time for me. Before children I had been working...

Jacqui Grant, Credentialed Master Practitioner of Coaching Student

I started my coaching journey in 2009 through reading and attending seminars run by Tony Robbins and others. However, my journey really took off in 2012 after contacting TCI and then again in 2013 when I made the commitment to myself. My first impression of TCI was an awesome feeling of welcome and community, exactly what I was looking for. My intake weekend was in March 2013, which was an amazing time. I was utterly stretched and I grew so much. I also learnt to get over myself. After intake I set the intent to just coach and learn. My mind was like a sponge and I continually used the ‘say yes and work out how’ approach.
