Check out the testimony of real-live TLCC students and graduates:

"In the first 10 months of setting up my coaching business, I earned $100,000 and now I am routinely earning double that amount each year. You can be making $100,000 a year as long as you put into practice what you learn and stay focused and disciplined."
"Within 24 Months, I decided to quit my job as a Project Leader to focus full-time on my own coaching business. I am now a fully qualified PCC-level Coach with the ICF, and I regularly work with more than 20 clients that I am either coaching or training. I have also written and launched my first book, which became a #1 seller on Amazon!"

Frequently Asked Questions

01 Who can become a life coach?

Essentially anyone can become a life coach in Australia. However, some specialised training is required to become a successful life coach who truly makes a difference in people’s lives.

Some beneficial qualities in a life coach are empathy, active listening and approachability. Undertaking life coach training will allow you to further hone those skills and learn advanced coaching techniques such as hypnosis and positive psychology.

Once you’ve obtained your life coach qualifications, you will be able to assist clients with setting personal goals to achieve their overall vision they have for their lives.

You will work together to help them achieve goals such as being a more effective communicator, improving their financial situation and having a more balanced life.

If you are considering a career as a life coach, chances are you already possess many of the attributes one needs to build a strong foundation as a life coach.

These attributes include empathy, patience and a drive to help others. Whilst completing life coach training, you will expand on this foundation and develop skills to understand, motivate and and inspire your clients.

In addition, you will learn how to be an effective communicator, how to build a rapport with your clients and ways to coach them toward a more fulfilling life.

Whilst you don’t need a license to become a life coach, these days information is so easily accessible that it is likely any potential clients will do their research to find someone who is most qualified.

Someone who has been formally educated and has experience in one-on -one coaching is far more likely to gain new clients and grow their business.

With the range of life coach training options available through The Life Coaching College, you will quickly find yourself becoming appealing to new clients.

The amount of time you will need to invest in life coach training will depend on the level of accreditation you want to achieve and the skills you want to possess.

At The Life Coaching College, our introductory course Practitioner of Coaching is a 6-month course that will provide you with the foundations of becoming a life coach.

The Diploma of Life Coaching is a 12-month course that will teach you everything you need to establish a sustainable coaching business.

We also offer the Master Practitioner Coaching Program, which takes 24 months, and provides you with a wide array of coaching skills to build a thriving business.

This will depend on which course you choose to study and the level of certification you will achieve.

At The Life Coaching College, we offer a range of courses from our Practitioner of Life Coaching course to becoming a Master Practitioner of Life Coaching.
