I looked at a lot of Life Coaching training organisations, and none of them felt right.
The Coaching Institute stood apart and I chose them for their professionalism.
The fact that they offer great student support (ask and you shall receive help from the WOW Team), you are given mentors, face to face training, you're brought into a very strong and supportive community, and they are pioneers in the industry.
I have been given access to amazing mentors and teachers, as much support as I asked for (as well as reminders to ask for help).
As well as a Facebook Group which offers the best support and advice on all things coaching (and it's life time membership too, so once you finish your training you can still tap into the minds of past and present coaches), and I've made some wonderful friends.
Let me not forget the generosity of spirit. Many people willingly share their intellectual property, you will not see that in many other industries, and that blew me away.
