The Life Coaching Industry

There are a number of industries that exist with the intention of assisting people with achieving their goals  - for example, a financial advisor helps someone to get out of debt and start investing. A life coach however, takes a holistic approach to helping their clients which allows them to go deeper and address the underlying reasons why they may be struggling to live a well-rounded and successful life. Whether this be due to interpersonal skills they are yet to develop or a lack of motivation to start working towards their biggest goals. Life coaches have become so popular as they can help people to look past the superficial aspects of their lives and build a solid foundation for achieving their dreams.

Why study Life Coaching?

Life coaching is a way to help clients achieve their desired goals by creating positive actions and habits. By completing life coaching courses in Australia, you can empower clients to reach their full potential and manage the personal and professional challenges they face.

Unlike counselling which focuses on analysing the past, life coaching focuses on the future and how clients can improve themselves and become their ‘best selves’.

What exactly do life coaches do?

As a certified life coach, you will help clients to create a vision for their future and devise a custom-made plan to achieve specific outcomes in their lives. By creating a plan of action, you will work with clients to improve productivity, encourage self-discovery and personal growth.

Life coaches help clients with issues such as obtaining work/life balance, managing transitions within their business as well as effective communication.

The skills and knowledge you gain from completing our life coaching course can be applied to any type of real-life situation, such as pursuing a new career, developing better social interaction skills, and even becoming financially disciplined in order to achieve one’s monetary goals - just to name a few.

Life coaching is the second-fastest growing profession in the world and is quickly gaining popularity across the globe. Your role as a life coach is integral in helping individuals maximise their potential and cope with any obstacles they may face.

What is Life Coaching all about?

At its simplest, life coaching is a type of wellness professional who is tasked to help people attain greater fulfilment through pursuing and achieving established goals. A life coach will offer personalised programs that focus on guidance, goal-setting and discipline - similar to that of a sports coach who helps an athlete achieve victory.

Life coaching can assist with many areas of a person’s life, such as:

  • Career development or a career change
  • Relationships
  • Starting a business
  • Achieving physical health goals
  • Hitting financial goals
  • Developing new interpersonal skills

Empowering clients and establishing accountability in order to achieve personal and professional success is the main focus of life coaching. If you are interested in studying life coaching, speak to us at The Life Coaching College today to get started.

What Our Students Say

“It was that block learning that appealed to me at The Life Coaching College: you learn a subject, you gain a certificate, and then you move on to the next subject, which means that pretty much from your first week of training you can start a coaching business.”

Jim Cocks | Master Practitioner of Coaching Student | Read His Story

"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."

Mark Hamawi | Master Practitioner of Coaching Student | Read His Story


"I love the fact that you are given so many materials through the course, so when your first box arrives, you've got workbooks, you've got scripts if you need them, and you have all of the tools to go out there and coach."

Becky English | Master Practitioner of Coaching Student | Read Her Story

"The sincerity and knowledge of the trainers at The Life Coaching College has left a lasting impression on me. Watching them teach, you could tell that they actually live the life they were speaking about, they practiced what they were teaching."

Matilda Wand | Master Practitioner of Coaching Student | Read Her Story

"The friends that I have made at The Life Coaching College is incredible. I have classmates that are now dear, lifelong friends, and I don’t think I could have gotten that from a college that was purely online.”

Nicole Davenport | Master Practitioner of Coaching Student | Read Her Story

“The other advantage of The Life Coaching College is that they are really big on helping you to not only become qualified, but to market your business and put yourself out there, and I think that’s often a missing gap for people once they become a certified life coach.”

Cindy Drake | Advanced Diploma in Executive & Leadership Coaching Student | Read Her Story
