Life Coach Training Course.


This training course shows you how to use the skills and experiences you have accumulated during your lifetime – to become a paid professional Life Coach. Every colourful event you’ve lived through now has HUGE VALUE as ‘an experience’. Any mistakes you made can become helpful stepping stones of guidance for the people you coach. So nothing you’ve done was a wasted experience. Think of the School of Hard Knocks as your university. This is a SIX MONTHS comprehensive training programme (HOME STUDY) which leads to a diploma qualification. Graduates may put DipLC after their name. There are six units to the programme. You can take less than six months if you are able to devote more than five hours a week to your studies. Assignments include practical exercises in the real world. All students seem to enjoy these. You’ll also learn how to set up your own business as a professional Life Coach. That means clients pay real money into your bank account.
