Course Overview

Make a difference in people’s lives and help them reach their goals

Do you like the idea of making a difference in the world? Do you like the idea of helping people? Do you like the idea of working for yourself, in your own time and at your own pace? Being a Life Coach provides you with an opportunity to get out of the 9 – 5 grind, out of the traffic, out of the boss’s hair, out of your shell, and into your own time, your own pace, your own and your difference!

A Life Coach partners with their client to assess the client’s goals, where they are at, where they want to go, and then assist to bridge that gap. Therefore, Life Coaches have very distinctive character traits. They are empathic, patient and compassionate, they also exhibit strong leadership, organisational and communication skills.
