Be a Professional Life Coach | The Coaching Institute

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.

How To Become A Professional Life Coach? Can I Do It?

If you enjoy communicating with others and have an interest in their personal and professional development, then you can learn the skills needed to offer professional life coaching and become an outstanding coach.

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?

You can be coaching as you train at our life coaching institute - many of our students are coaching WITHIN 90 DAYS OF JOINING - this is how successful what we teach is.

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 took me a while to write this success story, it has been sitting on my to do list since October! As I re-read the belief I have on my wall it says “Success to me is measured by the fun I am having, the lessons I learn and the people I connect with. I am already succeeding.” There has been a ton of success already and it is now time to write this based on my awesome empowering belief above. I have soooooo much fun, I learn something new everyday and the people I meet are AMAZING!

In December 2014 I attended some awesome Extended DISC training at TCI. At the time I had no idea how much I would get from this training both in my personal and work life. In January after one month off I returned to my full time employment and decided to share my EDISC profile with my Boss. Our relationship had been challenging to say the least in a covert kind of way. This equates to; we didn’t have outward contempt for each other but we ‘annoyed’ each other. Probably more to the point he absolutely frustrated the ‘crap’ out of me because he wouldn’t make a decision; or so I thought.

Now 2 years later in my business, which is called The Mindset Movement, 80% of my paying clients are teenagers, and the other 20% are parents. I work with them on leadership, I am starting to gain the clients I have always wanted to work with and my business is really starting to shine. I have just completed my first full day training with a local primary school where I worked with the teachers on Effective Communication and Team Performance.

From a commercially viable perspective I have moved into presenting to businesses it’s amazing how this simple tool lights people up instantly as they connect with the process and want to know more. I love the support TCI creates and having Joe Pane to present this fantastic tool allowed me even more insight in how to utilise it to its greatest potential

My decision to invest in a course at The Coaching Institute was professional and personal for me. As a Christian, years earlier I was told I would learn things that would give me an ‘understanding of the mechanics of what make people work, and do the things they do’, so after I saw the advertising for Life Coaching and learned more from TCI I had no hesitation to enrol.

The depth of the programs at TCI exceeded my expectations tenfold. Not only did I gain the knowledge and encouragement I needed to become a fully qualified personal coach, I also learned world class contemporary business and marketing strategies that were pivotal to the launch of ART Your Life. Through the learnings in the Diploma program about human behaviour I had become pretty good at working out how to make myself do things. I finally understood what motivated me and what didn’t, and what I responded best to and I knew that putting my back against the wall was the best way for me. I still do this to this day, however, I now do it in a more self loving and compassionate way.

My life has taken on many different paths and directions before joining the inspiring community at The Coaching Institute in Melbourne. I have been a semi professional soccer player in Europe, worked as a travel agent, taken to the high seas on cruise ships, become a trained and practising massage therapist and worked in the casino industry in the US as everything from a dealer to a pit boss for over a decade. While life on the gambling tables was financially rewarding there was always something missing; I was searching for a deeper purpose which I could not find with the roll of a dice or the flip of a card.

There are so many things I would love to list that TCI has taught me in which I attribute our success too but I would keep you here all day. But a few things that really stick out for me are the teachings in how to deal with fear because there is a lot of it in business, know who you are and what you stand for and beliefs. We dared to dream and we still dare to believe we will become greater then what we already are. Thank you TCI my investment in you is worth more then the weight in gold.

Previously I worked in Marketing & Sales and loved the creativity in my role as a Marketing Manager but something was lacking. I always had a dream within to help others and knew there was more to life. That is when I set up my business Spiritual Discovery part time offering readings, psychic pamper parties & workshops. After 4 months I wanted to help my clients even more, I knew they had the answers within and wanted them to see their full potential and take control of their life. This is when I enrolled into TCI to become an accredited Life Coach.

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. I got to the point with my current job where I started thinking ‘life’s to short to be stuck doing something you aren’t crazy passionate about’. I investigated a few different things and life coaching seemed to stick. So after looking at the various different coaching courses, I rang TCI.

Just before my 50th birthday last year, the TCI page popped up on my facebook. I phoned straight away, more out of curiosity. Within a month I had signed up to "go the whole way" to the Master Practitioner: 2 years of study. I believed that then I could DO life coaching and BE the person my patients thought I was! Little did I know that this learning would be like no other.

What I dig so much about the TCI community is that we hold a principle that says, ‘its ok to not know how’ and, ‘it is ok to suck at something.’ Failure is ok. I have learnt how set-backs, rejection, not having a great day or things not going to plan can leverage me into a successful outcome rather than the opposite. I have learnt how to strategize, to create steps and follow daily systems that direct me on the course. I have learnt that high personal standards are my most valuable asset. When I’m lagging I ask myself if this standard is one I uphold. My response dictates the action to follow. I have learnt to love where I’m at, no matter where I am. I have learnt that momentum is created by action. The ducks don’t line up unless one moves. TCI is a community based around this. Nothing happens unless I do something.

This coming year will see my business expand as I attract clients eager to experience a little ‘Modern Etiquette’. I will be doing more presenting, group work and joint ventures – and I am working on raising my profile within the niche of personal branding. Having worked with a blog coach recently – my blog launches in January and maybe I’ll finish my book. I have a voice and TCI has helped me find it.

This has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have had, to see these two young people grow the way they did was amazing. I truly stepped out into the coaching world on Tuesday 29th April 2014 launching my business with a 2 hour workshop presenting the 10 Success Principles. I listened to this CD collection constantly for 2 weeks prior to the event, at the gym, in the car and I was reading the book at the same time. I transcribed every CD and I live with these principles everyday. I signed my first business client in May 2014 on a 6 month retainer and have been coaching the business owners and their managers. This client has seen me grow as a coach, after completing EDisc, Advanced Skills, Meta 1 & Meta II and How to Run a Workshop. I have been grateful for the opportunity to use all of these skills with this business client.
