"Hello Coaching Colleagues
Over the past 18 months you have contributed to my coaching journey and personal growth. Thank you so much for your input, words of encouragement, constructive criticism, being a sounding board when I have needed it (which was often) and for just being there for me!
Without your support I would not have been able to progress to this stage and achieve my dream of launching a Life and ADHD coaching business for young people. You have all been my COACH along the way!
The journey has been slow and steady...small steps forward which over the last few months has resulted in me completing the LCA Cert IV course, Coaching Teens & College Students with ADHD with Jodi Sleeper-Triplett and my first round of Recipricoach training (which I only found out about from one of you).
With this grounding I now feel I can take a deep breath and step out into the coaching world. Today I have officially launched the Young Achievers website (www.youngachievers.net.au) ... I wanted to share this exciting milestone with you!
I am now on my way to providing coaching services......... whilst I continue to grow my skills and and gain more experience. As always any feedback, ideas or subtle prompts to keep me on track will be WELCOME!
Thanks again for championing me this far

"“The Life Coaching Academy adopts a very innovative way to learning and the pacing and structure of the learning process allows students to really understand what they are studying and apply in real life (in my case, my workplace). The residential weekend, book critique, research project, assessment questionnaires, webinars, triads and mentoring program provided a solid foundation for developing coaching skills and my ability to set up my own practice. The insights gained from the webinars and the other projects and assessments really helped in refining my coaching skills throughout the process. The professionalism and friendly approach of the LCA stands out above the other institutes I have contacted. This was pretty much seen from first interaction with Lynda and all throughout my program of studies. Peter was very helpful in exploring options for me to complete my program of studies at the most acceptable / efficient timeframe without compromising the quality of my learning and experience. He also provided a solid checkpoint for me and was very flexible with things. My mentor provided solid support to me throughout the program. My triad mates were very supportive and encouraging as well. The LCA staff supported me all throughout my journey. The entire program allowed me to maximise learning opportunities and build my confidence. I recommend the LCA to anyone who wants to embark on a journey of self discovery and develop their coaching capabilities.” "
"The life coaching course does exactly what the name suggests; it shows you a clear way through the blocks that prevent you reaching your full potential."
