This is the best investment I've made in my life so far. | The Coaching Institute

This is the best investment I've made in my life so far.

Ever since I was 16 years old I wanted to help people become the best they can be and to live the most incredible life they had ever dreamed of. I wanted to be a Life Coach but I didn't feel that I had much life to coach with. I went on a journey after High School trying to equip myself with various knowledge and skills so that I would be at my own personal peak and feel that I was able to coach and train others.

I became a Personal Trainer and found this helpful in teaching me about health and fitness but it didn't educate me enough about other parts of people’s lives and how to really bring transformation and change to those struggling with their bodies and health choices. I studied a degree in Psychology and Counselling and enjoyed being introduced to human thinking and behaviour but was apprehensive in finishing a masters in this because I wasn't certain that I felt this was the most powerful tool to help the people I wanted to impact, the books and research just wanting seeming to apply to those I saw struggling. I went on to work in and study HR / training and development where I learnt about business but I found that I didn't get the opportunity to really help people or work through different issues that they were coming up against in life. I decided to become a Secondary School Teacher because I thought that I could really help them and offer some guidance and assistance in their time of need. I enjoy working with youth and helping them learn about life but there's a lot of other superfluous work that didn't link with my purpose of helping people become their best and live their best life. I also felt like I still didn't have all of the necessary wisdom and strategies to help myself or the people surrounding me experience their best life yet. I was looking for my place in the world and where I could really contribute my best to others but found that all of these occupations touched on an area of my interests and developed my abilities and knowledge to a point but didn't go any further than that.

I was looking for more and I stumbled across The Coaching Institute (TCI), which seemed to stand out from the other training institutions in so many ways. I was sceptical of Life Coaching because of what I had heard in Psychology classes and in some other places. I was worried that it was a lot of Pollyanna talk from people who didn't really have a grasp on reality and would offer quick fix solutions. Although I was apprehensive about doing more study and didn't think that I could learn anything new, helpful or life changing I spoke to some of the staff at TCI who answered a lot of my questions so graciously and thought I would give it a try.

As I commenced my training I was continually amazed by the clear, simple yet comprehensive and transformational learning that took place - it was nothing like I had ever experienced in any of my other education or positions. The knowledge and experiences I was gathering was actually changing my life and helping me through some decisions and concerns that I had, some that I had worked on for years and other helping professions or education couldn't seem to speak into and shift. Everything that has been shared has added value to my life, it's challenged and developed me and has been so easy to apply to my coaching and training.

I wanted to thank you for all that you've been for me already in only a few short months! Firstly, thank you Fiona for talking with me, listening to my doubts and ignorance about starting Life Coaching when I thought I may not be able to learn anything new with my Psychology and Counselling background. You were respectful, considerate, and empathetic but also cared enough to stick with me and encourage me so I could experience the transformational world of coaching for myself.

I want to thank Joe Pane and others at TCI for the life changing weekend at Foundations of Coaching Success training. You instantly saw patterns, habits and beliefs in me that I was unaware of and that were holding me back from moving forward. You gave me so much wisdom and clarity around my future business as a Life Coach and Trainer, my marriage, my health choices and simply my life as a Human Being. There were so many beliefs, feelings, actions and situations that I was struggling with and have been trying to work out and sort through for years and I felt so free, clear and totally transformed after the weekend, something that I have never experienced despite all of the different human behaviour study and practice that I have encountered.

Sincerely, thank you. You have changed my life - in such an incredible way and for that I will be forever grateful! This is the best investment I've made in my life so far. Words cannot express how thankful I am for you.

TCI you are phenomenal!
